The cruise prize is awarded “as is” and is subject to cabin availability, blackout dates and the terms and conditions of the cruise line chosen; and includes ship accommodations, ocean transportation, meals aboard the vessel, some beverages, and most entertainment aboard the ship.

Summary

I have not yet decided whether or not I will participate in the sweepstakes; but if I do, I personally would rather win 100,000 American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program miles than the grand prize of a cruise voucher worth $3,000.00.

Regardless, I thought I would share this potential opportunity to you in case you would like to participate of a chance to win one of the prizes.

    Thank you for clarifying that I must have Internet access in order to participate in this sweepstakes. I guess that disqualifies me.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      That disqualifies me too, Rob, as I do not have access to the Internet either.

      In all seriousness, there are two clarifications:

      First, the language that participants must have Internet access is by whoever wrote the official rules for the sweepstakes — I did not make that up.

      Second, in many sweepstakes, you can submit postcards or call in via a telephone number — both of which can be done without Internet access; whereas for this sweepstakes, the only way you can participate is via the Internet.

      Again: I did not make up the rules for this sweepstakes…

      …but it is too bad that neither of us have access to the Internet…
