Weekly Chance to Win a Cruise
During Plan a Cruise Month, the industry is again launching #CruiseSmile, a digital and social promotion where travelers can enter to win a cruise each week throughout the month. A variety of voyages will be showcased at cruisesmile.org, under the themes family-friendly, cultural exploration, fun in the sun, and exploring nature. With 31 unique cruises, participants have the chance to win a cruise that will appeal to their personal style and preferences.
To win, participants must post a photo featuring a great “Cruise Smile” on twitter, instagram, or the campaign landing page at cruisesmile.org, using the hashtags #CruiseSmile and #sweepstakes from October 1 to 31. Guests can come back and enter each day, and discover new cruises that correspond with the weekly themes. At the end of each theme period, a winner will be chosen and will be able to select one of the featured cruises to fit their preferences. A total of four cruises will be given away.
