Be very careful! I usually 'win' a cruise a couple times a month. So far all are nothing but rip-offs. Check out the deal first and see if you have to attend meetings, pay 'port charges that are more than the cruise, and all the other things that go with scams. Usually if it sounds too good to be true, it is. I hope you actually won a legit cruise but those are few and far between.

That sounds great, Joyce. Congratulations! But like Jim Bragg said, check out your "free cruise" offer very carefully. Most of the time there's a catch or two, but this might be a genuine deal. Watch out for a "you have to pay the port charges, government fees, etc." condition to your "free" cruise. If you look at it carefully, and it doesn't cost you any money or inconvenience, then have a great time!

The name of the ship is "Mirage", and it was formerly owned by a Norwegian company. Its gross tonnage is 15,000; it has 275 cabins; and its listed passenger capacity is 850. It has a casino and most of the features we come to expect on a cruise ship. It sails between Port Canaveral, FL and the Bahamas.

I've seen the ship several times at Port Canaveral, and it looks OK. I certainly hope that you've really won a "free cruise". But look before you leap, and happy cruising! For more information, click on this link:

As has been stated above. Be careful. If it is free there has got to be a catch. I get those offers all the time and all so far have been a scam.

You will all be pleased to know that I have dumped SoHo Vacations and Ocean Club Cruises and am booking with RCCL Sovereign of the Seas. NOW how do I get one of those count down clocks?

copy and paste this string in your signature. Change the dates to the ones of your cruise, and you should be o'k.
