Scams to Avoid for Free Cruises

We all would love to get a free cruise.  But many offers for a free cruise are just scams.  Here's a link for new cruises to read to avoid these at all costs. 


We actually did the time share bit once but we got out in 45 minutes by being VERY assertive and did get the free cruise plus other perks like $50 in cash and free dinner for two.  We actually had the guy who talked us into the presentation, initial that we were only required to stay 45 minutes right on our form.  Would I do it again?  NO! Too much anxiety!

We've sat through a couple of presentations to get free entry to Disney parks, but it took away about 2 hrs of our vacation time, which we were aware of prior to going. I'd do it again, but my husband won't. Nervous

My sister & her husband own several timeshares. They used to always go to these presentations. Now even they won't go because they take too long. The timeshare people can get very pushy about trying to get you to attend the presentations. Now they are called "surveys" but they are still just ways to get you to attend.


LOL - a new name, but the same pushy salespeople.

Stay away! As a rule, you cannot afford their savings. (from a former Hawaii timeshare owner).

We went to a timeshare presentation ONCE, when we were dating. We ended up with a stupid hibachi grill. To this day, I'm not quite sure how I got the concussion, but when I came to the hibachi was in more pieces than the directions implied, and my now wife telling me I was lucky I didn't need a proctologist.

Being Single I do not fit the demographic.......what a shame

We've done timeshares in the Smokeys a couple of times for $100 cash. Back when the budget was tight and we had three young kids, it was worth it for the extra spending money.

Every time the "Concierge" who signed us in to this resort would see me, he would ask me to convince my sister to take the "survey." It really got annoying after awhile.
