Question Royal Caribbean free cruise: what's the catch?

We received a letter in the mail from Royal Caribbean International cruise line. The letter states:

Congratulations! In celebration of our Grand Opening in your area, you are going to receive a complimentary 8-day/7 night cruise for 2, leaving from a major port in the U.S.

Bonus: Call within 72 hours and you will also receive 2 round trip airfares leaving from or going to a major airport in the continental U.S.

This is not a timeshare or land sale offer.

It would be nice to go on a free cruise including free airfare, but I am very skeptical of this offer, and although it sounds tempting, I have not called them back. The saying goes "there's no such thing as a free lunch". On the other hand it would be a shame to ignore this offer if it's legit. Anyone else know about offers like this from Royal Caribbean? Is there a catch, and if not what would they have to gain?

The wife had the same post card propped up at my computer, read the fine print at the bottom, talks about having to attend a seminar. Trash!

Heck of an idea, but he would have to change his name.
