I would run not walk... notice they say three times you can only book SELECTED cruises thru only them.

Quote:
This $500 vacation card must be activated at www.XXXXXXX.com where you can choose from a wide selection of 7-Day itineraries to the most popular cruise destinations. (but it may not be the cruise you would book otherwise or may be only certain times of the year etc.)

Special Instructions:

Cruise must be booked through the Vacation Redemption Center. Bookings are subject to availability and the Vacation Redemption Center cannot guarantee availability for a specific cruise.

Vacation Card cruise savings are indicated for two people and are valid on selected sailings
I would also check them out at BBB and google their name if this doesnt scare you away already.

First of all, they are not accredited by the Better Business Bureau. That should tell you something. Second, there are numerous reports of being ripped off, of not being able to contact them once they get your money and a lot of other things.
