Imperial Majesty Cruise / Ramada Inn
Misleading Information / Fraud
Imperial Majesty Cruise / Ramada Inn
DO NOT GO ON THIS TRIP! Trip: 3nights in Ft. Lauderdale, 2nights Bahamas Cruise, 2nights Orlando and 7day car rental. Total Cost: Deposit of $700 Rest of the deposit $200 Upgrade to cruise room with a window $200 So-called free-car rental but with basic insurance and tax/fees $150 (TOYOTA yaris) Ft. Lauderdale Ramada Inn Tax/Fees : $45 Cruise Tip/Tax/Fees: $72 Park n' Go at Port Everglades: $23 Orlando Ramada Inn Tax/Fees: $30 Toll Fee from Ft. Lauderdale to Orlando: $20 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- $1443 Basic Cost of this trip. This means you are not really getting a DEAL. That basic cost does not include GAS $, FOOD, and other activity expenses. Sunday - Ft. Lauderdale. Welcome Center to pick up hotel voucher. Also give you paper to attend timeshare presentation on Monday. CHECK IN at 3pm. NOT AN OCEANFRONT HOTEL! Drive to the beach was about 15-20 minutes. Really low-quality hotel. Friendly staff though. Very small pool and tiki bar that closes at 8pm (early). Monday - 1pm TIMESHARE PRESENTATION. Wake up early to enjoy at least the morning because from 1pm and on, expect to spend the rest of your afternoon and early evening at the timeshare BS. They just won't take "NO" for an answer. By the way, this timeshare presentation location is about 45 minutes away. Tuesday - Enjoy Ft. Lauderdale. Your only real FULL DAY in Ft. Lauderdale to enjoy at your leisure. Wednesday - CHECK OUT. Head to Port Everglades for Bahamas Cruise 12pm. Wait in a long line to check in (customs, make your cruise boarding card which you'll access your room as well as purchase everything else including beverages and shore-excursions they announce 5 million times). Lunch buffet. Food was okay on the cruise. Room was clean and not too crowded. Cruise was definitely a small cruise. Definitely worth the upgrade and stayed on 8th deck while 9th deck was the highest deck. Since it was a small ship, I was experiencing motion-sickness below 8th deck. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner was included but beverages non-alcoholic and alcoholic were NOT included. Whatever drink you ordered, an automatic 15% tip was included. Whatever. They STRONGLY recommend you to purchase something to do when you're in Bahamas. I ended up signing up for Bottomless Glass Boat Tour and Cable Beach Experience at Hilton Hotel. So that was $188 for me and my boyfriend. Thursday - Bahamas. Total cost spent on Cruise including the activity, 3drinks, 1 coke, tax/fee, they billed me $300. Friday - Back to Ft. Lauderdale. Drive to Orlando. 3.5 hours. Expect several toll gates. Check In Ramada Inn Orlando. Once again, low-quality hotel. I just couldn't stand the chlorine smell THROUGHOUT the whole hotel. Not just the pool area but through halls AND the rooms themselves. It was disgusting. Dirty carpet. Dust everywhere. Bathroom floor that seems like it has never been mopped. Dirty bedsheets. Just simply nasty. If you didn't purchase any timeshare in Ft. Lauderdale, the welcome center wants you to go through another timeshare presentation to receive your Universal Studios ticket which we refused and paid ourselves. I couldn't go through another timeshare presentation. Saturday - Orlando. Full-Day to spend on your leisure. We went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures. Sunday - CHECK OUT 12pm. But we checked out at 10am because our car rental last sunday started at 11am, we had to return by 11am. Not thinking about that matter, i booked the flight around 2:30pm so we spent hours at the airport. I guess that was my fault. Overall: Other than lots of $$$$$$$ we spent in addition to what we already paid and crappy hotels and sea-sickness from small ship, it was ok. Would we ever set up another vacation package through Imperial Majesty Cruise or Ramada Inn? HELL NO. For you folks who believes that you guys got a DEAL of your lifetime, Please expect to spend another $1300-1400 during the trip! Hope this review helps!
