Just wanted to provide some interesting info regarding this cruise.

Here's the postcard I received today. It asks people to call within 48 hours to 1-855-394-9948. The ports of call are the same as previously mentioned.

The wording of the offer as as follows. Except for the ficticious name, I have used exact spacing, formatting, italics and bold font:
_______________________

Dear John Doe
In celebration of our Grand Opening in your area, you have been selected to receive a 8 Day/7- Night Cruise for 2 with an outside cabin, leaving from any major port in the U.S.

CALL WITHIN 48 HOURS. YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE AS A BONUS
2 Roundtrip Airfares Leaving from or Going to Any Major Airport in the Continental U.S.!!
_________________________

So...did anyone notice? At no point in the above offer, or anywhere else on the postcard, did they ever say "Complimentary", "Complementary", "Free", or any other similiar language. They leave it up to the person receiving the card to interpret that for themselves...which would be an incorrect assumption!
