Imperial Majesty Cruse Line Vacations Portage La Prairie Manitoba Review

I

On Friday, May 30th I received a rather official looking piece of mail from Fort Erie, Ontario L2A 5N1, with the Administrative Offices of RPR/OFV Records Division 2419 E. Commercial Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale,FL 33308 (The zip is legitimate). Two years ago the same company did a phone campayne with very similar tele- sales techniques alwready described by other Ripoff Scamss. nI called the 1-800 number to activate, but rather searched the internet for the scam report. Confirmed: 1040+ reports, generally negative. I did try the number before sending this report, but the number was too busy. (Too many people trying to give their credit card numbers too the operators, I suppose). nThe ticket / voucher looks fairly impressive: (Almost Reader’s Digest Quality mailer), with a reservation number, confirmation number, * cabin class (*TBD -which doesn’t seem to make sense, when looking at the ship floor plan). The $1300.00 travel Credit Voucher was terribly impressive too. It looks just like a cheque,with bank/acct/transit numbers on the bottom left. *savings up to. non-regotiable-no cash value. voucher based on full retail value of all components purchased separately. On the right side of the “check”” is states This Is Not a Check nOn the back of the “”check”” are the Terms and Conditions: I won’t repeat them here but in b o l d at the bottom of the fine print is: This advertising material is being used for the purpose of soliciting sales of a vacation ownership plan. The link for the fine print is here. nThis is not a revelation; many resorts utilize this method to sell time-share condominiums. For a weekend stay you are required to attend a 3-hour sales presentation. (Example: Elkhorn Resorts Manitoba) nIf you DO actually say yes it states in small print that “”Responders to this offer may be identified to other advertizing companies with products and services we believe you may be interested in. nFine Print Surcharges: The cruise does not include Port Charges
