FUCK the CouponMan!
I know if people cancel, they're losin' money, but they got to keep those deposits! It's not a 100% loss on each bed, it's 50%, which is pretty good. That means if they resold 50% of the beds that cancelled, they'd still be where they started. There's had to be a few cancellations even after the Sept 1st deadline...there's a room to make double their $ on.
Now let's assume they sell out ALL of MOST of the beds that reneged...now they make even MORE money than they started out with and WE early supporters, the bloodline of Jam Cruise 1, and the Mother of jamcruise II, get fucked...and they don't even buy us a drink first.
Anyway you look at it, it's bad business with this particular clientel scene to undercut the early supporters because the management got greedy and saturated their own market with a Jamcruise 2 immediately afterwards. Do a count of how many people bailed or took a loss on dumping their jam cruise 1 bed because they liked jam cruise 2 better (I know of 2). What's worse is that they rub it in our face, by plastering it all over the discussion board.
I agree that these people remember a good fuck as well as a bad one and this sales tactic will negatively affect future events like this as no one will book until the last minute.
So CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION is right.
The managment is making me DISCOusted!
