Re: Time Share "Gifts"....
You are right...I suppose there IS such a thing as a free cruise because my niece also won a cruise at bingo on Carnival.
Its just those, "come-listen-to-my-sales-pitch-for-90-minutes" type free cruise. There is always a catch to them.
However, your free cruise doesn't count. That is a billing error. You may have just jinxed yourself now by talking about it....
