Of course, the great penchant to get "something for nothing" runs rampant here. A FREE cruise just sounds too good to be true.

If you check the reviews of the particular company mentioned in this thread, you will find that it has been taken to court several times, and won each time, due to the fine print in the contract. Many many large famous companies in every line of business engage in HYPE advertising with details hidden in the fine print ("plus postage and handling"). It is just that in the "free cruise" business, the hidden costs are so high compared to the value received.

It is a long established principle of the law "caveat emptor", let the buyer beware. Allowing people to cheat themselves is not illegal.

It was fun reading this report! Thanks.
