Class Action Settlement for “Free Cruise” Robocalls – $500 Payout Per Call [2011-2012]

The Class Action

Direct Link (FAQ’s)

This lawsuit claims that Caribbean Cruise Line violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by making automated survey calls offering a free cruise in exchange for taking a political and/or public opinion survey.

Defendants deny these allegations and deny that the telephone calls violated the law.  The Settlement is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and costs associated with a trial.

Submit a claim form here to take part in the lawsuit. Claims must be submitted by February 1, 2017.

Who is Eligible?

If you received a call on your landline or cellphone by Caribbean which offered a free cruise for taking a survey between August 2011 and August 2012.

How Much Will I Get?

You’ll get $500 per call, unless the settlement class is too big in which case that amount will be reduced.

Our Verdict

Probably most people won’t be eligible, but might be worth taking a second to check your phone number to see if it is. Hopefully, we’ll hear from a few readers who were eligible.

You can use it to take a cruise! I’d forgotten about this, had to register for my Mom’s… I’ll have to make sure she opens all her mail and doesn’t chalk it up as junk mail.

My number was listed. Probably everyone in Florida. They later sent an email saying the settlement payout will be less if this is the same class action.

We were contacted by the Admin of the lawsuit – I specifically remember these calls as well. There were at least 7, although I doubt we are going to get a $3500 check – I’ll follow up with settlement amount once we get the check.

Are they just phishing for valid phone numbers?

My phone number wasn’t on the database sheet, but I entered my number and it said I was verified. Should I go through with the application?

mine wasn’t either but i went through with it anyways as it said it was verified and i get like 10 robocalls from them a day. I must be on their speed dial. But on the final page it says (paraphrasin) “to my knowledge i am the victim of robocalls” which in this case is true

The database sheet lists the numbers that the cruise line called from. If your number is verified it means they called you, so you’re eligible.

hmm.. other than phone number, how else is eligibility verified? name and address associated to phone number? because this is going to get exploited really quick at $500 per call.

My parent’s number was on there, there’s an option for tick if you had less than three calls, or more that three. I talked to Mom, and she said “Oh, more than three for sure”, so we’ll see where it goes.

Alas, a handful of other phone numbers I know aren’t on there.

Out of curiosity, what does your mom think of your Kniefall von Warschau?

I wish there was a class action lawsuit for each of the 5 calls a day I get about cruises, “message from cardholder services”, fake charities, etc.
