    Sounds fishy to me -- 8 day cruise? Free? Not likely.

    Cruising is a wonderful way to enjoy retirement.

    I received the same postcard on Friday 4th March 2011 from Carnival. It truly looks real but I believe it to be a fraud.

    Well, I just called them. It requires listening to a 90 minute sales pitch for a new international travel service. I'm not about to sign up for anything or provide any more personal information or money. But, what the hay! My husband and I took advantage years ago of a few time share presentations and received some nice gifts and free travel adventure with our children. I'm cautious, but it is traveling via Carnival and US Air... so, I will attend their presentation on Friday and let u know!

    Only thing I can say is that I've heard of people going on timeshare resort promo trips ...some enjoy, some felt really harrassed. You have to really think how you will feel if they are aboard the cruise ship still following you around pestering you to buy. On land you can get away, at sea! Well...wow...they have a captive audience!

    I'll be interested to hear what happens.

    I received that postcard today, Apr 4, 2011. If you look on the left side, in the very small print, it says they are not sponsored by or affiliated with Carnival Cruise Lines.

    What was the outcome of the sales presentation?

    My Dad signed some paperwork and received a complimentary cruise. He did not enjoy participating in the battle of the Coral Sea.

    I received this card the 4th of March and we were leaving on a Carnival cruise in 2 days and left the next morning for Miami. The card got thrown away. My son called after we returned from our cruise and asked if we received a card about a cruise. He got one and he called the number and attended the promotion in Cleveland and said it was a good deal but he couldn't buy their offer because he owns a cabin in Canada and spends his vac. time there. They didn't push or hound him. They gave him the 2 free cruises of his choice and 2 flights of his choice, that he had a year to use. I called the next morning and asked if I could attend their promotion and they ask for my number on the card and I didn't have it and they said sorry I had to have the number. I am still trying to find a way to attend.. Alan
