It's not a scam persay; it is a marketing campaign. They will aggressively try to sell you on the time share. My parents got caught in one when we were kids vacation to Disney. The actual trip was nice - except for the 3 hours they spent talking to them. We counted by the 2 Disney movies we watched.
To be fair though, my parents were suckered into buying, so I don't know how long the presentation on its own cost. Thankfully we had not actually reserved any trips with them yet so it was a little easier that way. We asked to be removed from everything they had. Technically it is not a scam. You will 058 - Honeymoons - Honeymoons get your tickets but during your "free trip" you will be required to sit through several seminars and such so you won't really get to enjoy your vacation.
You will also have to pay the taxes and they tell you when you can go. If you want a legitimate cruise, check out Carnival. Not really a scam but go anyway. We had 058 - Honeymoons - Honeymoons amazing experience in Orlando. We were upgraded to the resort and only paid tax.
Yes it's a timeshare but just say no if not interested. We also just booked the cruise for two people. Give it a chance it will save tons of money.
Then it gives you an exact price you pay, then you call to book it. Very easy fast process! We haven't received anything from them since. I too just got roped in! Did anyone have to pay anything additional? It's been over the 10 Waiting There - The Jar Family - Jarmalade - Sampler they said we had to cancel.

If we sat through their timeshare presentation we would get two free cruise tickets. I researched them online and across the internet only found the worst reviews. We called after we got home to cancel everything and ask for a refund. Does anybody have any experience with this company? Dedicated April We did that too. It's not a scam. But you do have to pay for the taxes. And they limit you to what days you can go.
For example ours would have to leave on a Wednesday and come back Saturday. VIP August I would avoid this. They'll be trying to sell you on their timeshares from the beginning to end of your vacation. Dedicated August The vendors who present vacation options are excellent at what they do. They are capable of emphasizing on the greatest selling points while excluding the fact that it is a timeshare. In the future, if your gut instinct reminds you of this experience, you should blatantly ask if it is a timeshare.
So sorry you had that experience! Thanks for the input! We want an easy fun vacation so we went ahead and told Diamond Resorts we would like to disconnect ourselves Falling In Love - Scorpions - Animal Magnetism the company.
VIP April February I purchased the same package today. When you called to cancel, were you able to get your money back? View Quoted Comment.
Just Said Yes August This happened to me as well at a bridal show. Should I still go to the presentation and get the free cruise? Just Said Yes October I'm following this threat too. They guy told me my bridesmaids and I could use it for our bachelorette weekend, but I noticed in the fine print that it says only up to 2 guests Should I just tough out the 2 hour presentation, or try and cancel all together?
Just Said Yes September 058 - Honeymoons - Honeymoons Rockstar September Just Said 058 - Honeymoons - Honeymoons March Just Said Yes April I am still nervous because it seems too good to be true. Just do the hotel first sit through the timeshare presentation 058 - Honeymoons - Honeymoons then book a cruise.
