My son who was 7 at the time was really looking forward to meeting Mickey Mouse and was crushed when I told him we couldn't go.
He claimed that this is a "Live Offer" and needed to be completed with registration and 8 payment. Had a good solid feeling there was no truth to this offer. nothing in this life is free - always use caution and safety before disclosing personal information. " For Port fees of 118.00 I could fill an unbooked room, which would benefit the company Grand Bahamas Cruise Line with their ship-the Grand Cellebration.He told me he understood my hesitation and that I could do my research at so I did. I then googled further to find this site with a wealth of information. I stated my misgivings, and they kept telling me to go to their website It took a few repeated "No thank you'" before they let me go.Honestly, I never intended to take the offer, but it was such fun to play with them for 46 minutes!I never initiated a first call, so how could I do that. The rep said he was calling me in regards to my request online. Told the rep that I didnt have my credit card with me... Almost went through with it when I found no less than 5 webpages devoted to scams of this company dating back to 2010. These people are working hard to separate you from the money you earned in sweat. Let's put a stop to this emotionally damaging practice, and put these people behind bars.
I've never in my life seen anything about this cruise line. With ID Theft at an all time high why would anyone give their credit card info to someone they didnt contact?? On a positive note, 30% of the passengers on the ship actually did come from the scam, only paying the port taxes. They are thieves, and deserve to be treated as such.I just receive a call from a 6013261192 Mississippi number but she stating she calling out of Florida stating i just won a Free Cruise to the Bahama Hoilday Cruise Line Johnnie Mae Brown the Rep.after telling me all about the trip she stated she need 118.00 now.I told her...didn't you say FREE but she went on about Tax fees so i said no thank.I filed a complaint on Jan 16, received a rebuttal from the company, full of lies of course, then rebutted back in more detail, I also mention about their tendacies to mislead customers (facebook page). When I asked him about it he went on to tell me how lucky I am to have received the call and they are losing money by giving away these cruises. He said it wouldn't be fair to other people that have to pay immediately.Here is the link if interested; https://bbb.org/complaint/view/90289267/c/a2j78b They are to respond back by the 17th.. I put in his website and also googled the grand celebration. I asked him if I could call him back after speaking to my husband this afternoon. 5/1/15 AM received call on my no-call-list cell number from 347-541-0246, offering a " won free" cruise.Taking my supervisor's advice, I reported them to Maryland Attorney General and was surprised to hear I was not the first person scam by Plaza Resort. That dimmed all my hopes of ever getting my money back and I didn't.
