STAY AWAY FROM THE SO-CALLED "DREAM CRUISE" OF RAMADA RESORTS
I'm adding to the tons of complaints here about Ramada Plaza Resorts and their rip-off cruise/vacation package or whatever they call it.
Just received a phone call this morning from one of their extremely helpful sales agents, saying a package I bought in Nov 2009 for just over $400 had expired, without me claiming. Was told that I could have extended the validity had I called earlier to give another travel date. Was told they could still help me if I buy a second person's ticket for almost $900. I told the woman on the phone that I had a similar experience 2 years ago (when I forgot about another package I had bought) and they willingly extended it for just a few hundred dollars more. She said "you got to remember that was in 2009 and the package costs a lot more now". I was told I had to pay the near $900 or lose it all. I said let me speak to a supervisor. There was a pause. Then a voice came over the phone that sounded was sounded identical to the one who spoke to me earlier, identifying herself as the General Manager of the company. I said "wait, are you sure you're not the same person I was talking to just now?" And that's when she exploded, became extremely rude, insisted she was the GM and that I could pay the near $900 or take the loss. I said give me a callback number. She said: "It's okay, we'll cancel you out." Surprised by her caustic tone, I decided to go online and find a number for any higher-ups at the Ramada that I could complain to. That's when I stumbled across a litany of complaints about this company on Rip-Off. So my advise to you people is the same: Stay aware from them!
