A definite advertisement fail, but not the fault of American Express. Just a case of exceedingly bad timing.
"Have you ever dropped a letter in the mailbox and then instantly wished you could get it back? I imagine that’s how American Express feels. Yesterday my letter carrier delivered a brochure from Amex inviting me to “immerse” myself in a “truly European experience” with a Mediterranean cruise vacation aboard the ... Costa Concordia.
I think that might be a little too much immersion for me.
It actually isn’t the ill-fated Costa Concordia that’s pictured on the front of the brochure. It’s sister ship Costa Fascinosa. But inside I’m encouraged to book a seven-night western Mediterranean cruise on the Costa Concordia between Feb. 25 and Oct. 29."
