Choosing a cruise line can be as overwhelming as picking a destination for your summer vacation (or heck, as picking one more book to fit into your carry-on). Well, Carnival Cruise Line has a one-of-a-kind proposition that may settle it for you: A "Great Vacation Guarantee."

Since 2013, Carnival has offered the promise to customers where voyagers can go to guest services within the first 24 hours of their trip and get a 110% refund if they are dissatisfied for any reason. In addition to the full-and-then-some refund, guests also receive complimentary transportation home, and an $100 shipboard credit should they decide to go on a future cruise. The offer is valid for U.S. and Canadian residents only and you can read the full policy here.

“The ‘Great Vacation Guarantee’ is designed to provide an assurance to those consumers who may be considering a cruise that we stand behind our product and, if they are dissatisfied for any reason, they have a simple and hassle-free means for receiving a full refund and more," said Gerry Cahill, Carnival president and CEO at the time, in a company press release regarding the pledge.
