Between the months of July 2009 and March 2014, if you received a pre-recorded telemarketing call from Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Lines about a free cruise you may be eligible for up to $900 in compensation. These pre-recorded calls sent by a company hired by these cruise lines to promote business were a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Due to this violation, a class-action lawsuit was brought to court. A settlement was reached between the cruise lines and the plaintiffs of the lawsuit that allows receivers of the call to be eligible for $300 in reimbursement per call, up to three calls.
