Scam or no scam - who knows. Just remember if it sounds too good to be true it usually is. The Imperial Majesty is very old, not a bad thing. I don't think you will get your monies worth even if it is free. We sailed on her in 1984 (then Commadore Cruise Lines) and had a great time - even went through Hurricane Kate - but that was 24 years ago.,
Freind of mine did this. First as I recall it wasn't free it cost him a couple of bucks I think around $200. Second they put him up in the Ramada which he said was a hole in the wall. Then he took the cruise the the bahamas which he described as the as The Staten Island Ferry with a casino. There was a time share pitch in the bahamas that he had to sit thrrough real high pressure. He said the accomodations in the Bahamas were nice though.
I doubt I could be bothered.
