I was called to take a survery to receive my "Free" cruise to the Bahamas

The following day I received a follow up call to collect my certificate letter for my Free cruise.  I was passed from one sales rep to another offering me all the add ins.  I had reviewed the Rip Off report while

I was on the phone with Michelle and Taylor. 

This is not even close to being free, and of course they want you to pay today.  $951 for the free cruise

plus air fare, taxes, tips that are automatically billed without your permission.

It was a good thing that I read the rip off report first, this allowed me to ask many questions before I denied all the offers.  When I said No, they said, We will give your free trip to someone else and slammed the phone down on me.

Buyer Beware, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is not.

Ok u say this is not legit however I just got  a cruise from the same company Bahamas celebration. I did take a survey for the free cruise and I got a call within 72 hours of completing the survey. The lady called me saying I was selected for their free cruise promotion she then stated all the details and said I had to pay governmental port taxes of $118.00 which is very much true after doing research finding out that everyone has to pay port taxes weither its free or not. thats not a scam thats facts. then she offered me a 3 day 2 nights in ft lauderdale 2 days 2 nights on cruise (which turned out to be 3days 2 nights in the bahamas) 3 days 2 nights in orlando all for $915 she also told me i would have to do a guided tour of a develpment site however that was my choice I did not have to take the deal it was up to me and I took it because u cant beat it who cares if i have to take a time share thats still a good deal. Its not a scam my mother took the cruise loved it my fathers took the cruise loved it so it is legit. Its only illegal if they dont tell u the details and i know they do so u really should not post and say this company aint real. Also its ur choice they dont put a gun to your head and tell u u have to take it.

Time Share

AUTHOR: Dcadonna - (United States of America)

Yes, I have been to Time Share Presentations, and know to just say NO.

The point I was trying to make was FREE ended up to $951 per person for me.

Its called  bait and switch and I do not think its legal, however I am not an attorney so I do not know the laws.

Have you ever tried a time share presentation

AUTHOR: Aaron - (United States of America)

A lot of time share presentations will give you a free cruise just to listen to them while they try to sell you their overpriced product.  Just remember not to buy it!  I just went to one that gave away a free cruise plus a bunch of other free stuff.  Keep in mind that free means you have to pay the port taxes which are only about $100 to $150.  Unfortunately taxes are unavoidable on any so called freebie.  They are able to pay for all of these freebies because so many suckers actually get conned by the high pressure salesmen to buy timeshares.
