We received a "free" Carnival cruise when we bought our timeshare. It was for an inside cabin only but on a 7 day cruise. We chose the Glory when she was only 6 months old. We had to pay the port fees and taxes and we upgrade to a balcony. It was a great vacation. Check out the travel company carefully. For only 90 minutes of your time it might just be a 3 day cruise but any cruise is better than none.

I have a friend at work going on her 2nd NCL "free" cruise given to her by one of the local casinos where she is a regular. She pays the taxes and port charges and gets a 7 day/inside cabin cruise.
