Some local car dealers are offering vouchers for a free 5-day, 4-night Carnival cruise with the purchase of an automobile. Fortunately, I am in the market to purchase a new vehicle. Has anyone every received and used one of these vouchers? Do you know what this voucher does and does not cover?
Where are you located Mikey?
A few years ago we recieved the same thing for buying a car. After paying the taxes etc. and all the hidden costs it was not much cheaper than booking a cruise through an agent or direct with the cruise line. Hope your's works out.Right now for the cruise we are taking on Carnivals website it is $329pp. For our "free cruise" we only paid $100 for port taxes and fees. So I guess for us it worked out.
Ha d a friend that used one - doesn't include port charges or tax & you have to be VERY flexible as to when you want to go. They tried for a year & finally got Mother's Day cruise.Since the dealership seems to want to get rid of all those cars and is offering the crusie, could the OP ask for them to pay for those charges? The OP has to pay to fly to get on the ship and the tips, I would think it would benefit them to help out on the port charges and the taxes. Wouldn't that be a good marketing idea?
