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?
