We Were There On "Tour" But Didn't See Anything.
When were at that resort in January 2006 on a sales presentation (maily but not exclusively for the freebies), the sales representative didn't even show us around. We didn't see the pool, nor any resort amenities, nor a timeshare condo unit. Not anything.
We just got the regular sales pitch right there in a back corner of the 2nd floor sales room -- mainly about the benefits of their (RCI) points system. They also tempted us by repeatedly increasing the number of free cruises they would throw in if we bought.
The sales guy didn't mention anything about any recent change in management. I just naturally assumed the Celebrity Resorts people are the same as the Celebrity Cruises people. (There weren't any actual celebrities around, not even any pictures of famous people.)
We actually would have liked seeing their model units, but the sales presentation took so long that we were ready to collect our freebies & head on back to the resort where we were staying (Vacation Village At Parkway, on RCI exchange) without stretching out the "tour" beyond the breaking point. So I didn't even ask about going to see 1 of their actual timeshare condos.
