Has anyone gotten this postcard thru the mail w/ the RCCL Ship and logo on it, along w/ US Airlines, Just trying to figure out what it is, has anyone called the number that it says to call, just curious. Says no timeshare, etc, I know nothing is free in life, but so tempting

The site rhymes with cruisebait, if that helps.

Proceed with caution and call RCCL to see if they who "they" are and if it legit travel company. Never give out a credit card # or send MO until you've verified all the "fine print." Unfortunately nothing in life is free.
Guess it wouldn't hurt to call, but like the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isThey will caller ID your number and start calling you. I made the mistake just calling and asking what they were. Ended up getting calls got the next two weeks.

My long signature will annoy some people. I'm ok with that.
The free cruise was very limited date wise, and would be an inside cabin, on an old ship, etc. the person still had to pay all port fees/taxes.
This wasn't a TOTAl scam, but it was a pain in the behind.
I talked to some members who enjoyed their free cruise, and others who had bad experiences.
If it sounds too good to be true...
Ruby Princess- Nov. 2008
We live in England and enter for the competions provided by RCCL on their website.
The other day we received the infamous post card that others have mentioned on this site. Although the dates of previous posts are for 2011, it appears this is still happening. Because it has the Royal Caribbean logo and colors, I decided to call for further info. Yes, we are to attend a presentation and are responsible for fees, taxes (which is stated on the post card). I asked to bring a friend and was told there was not room. This sounded strange that the presentation could accommodate only 4 couples.
After reading the many posts, it's obvious I'm in for a "time share" clobbering. I'm wondering if we are still eligible for this "free" (ahem) cruise upon declining the purchase of a time share.
I will post the results of our experience.
