Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Unfortunately my family and I both purchased this cruise and hotel voucher ($599 each) from a daily deal site called We have been trying to book it last 3 months through the Merchant and feeling ripped off. Unbelievable how unscrupulous the Merchant is. Buyer be very wary when buying Daily Deals thinking you are getting a 50% discount..NOT ALWAYS.

I have been on many cruises and was excited to book this deal to celebrate my anniversary. But this has turned into a nightmare. or Destination Ventures International wants to charge me:

$564.12 (in addition to $599 I already paid for voucher, total cost $1163.12) to book a 4 day cruise leaving from Long Beach for 2 people on Carnival Inspiration on 3/11/12 that would only cost $875 if I booked myself today online on

When asked about leaving from Orlando on Carnival Sensation on 12/9/12, they want to charge an additional $405(in addition to $599 i already paid, total cost $1004) when it only cost $584.66 if booked online today!

When asked for ANY available cruise from the 4 required departure ports without additional out of pocket cost, was basically told I'm out of luck.

## This deal is a RIPOFF!! Do not buy it or you will regret it as I do. ##
