Win a Cruise! #CruiseSmile Sweepstakes

You will not believe what I have to share with you today! There is a sweepstakes going on right now that is giving away a cruise a day! Yes – this is a historical giveaway that has the cruise industry giving away a cruise a day – everyday for the month of October!

So who knew that October is National Plan a Cruise Month? I didn’t before this interview. OK, so we can pretty much declare a National Month for whatever we want. But if someone is willing to give away 31 cruises in one month – I say let them call it Plan a Cruise Month! For sure.

National Plan a Cruise Month

I was very excited to get the chance to talk with cruise expert Kendra Thornton. She revealed the latest trends in cruising, the best cruise deals and… Drum Roll Please….

Win a Cruise! #CruiseSmile Sweepstakes

Check out the interview, Kendra has such great information to share.

I (unfortuanely) have never had the chance to take a cruise. I love to travel, and one day hope to cruise – but it has never been super high on my list of travel destinations. Not to say that if I was offered a cruise, that I wouldn’t jump at the chance. I really do hope to cruise one day. Kendra shared so many wonderful destinations, ones that I have never even thought of as cruise destinations before. Much of the world is really accessible by either ocean or river cruises.

So I am entering the sweepstakes today! Maybe I will get a chance to cruise sooner than later. There are two cruises that I have always dreamed about. One to Alaska, and one to the Galapagos Islands. Those are my dream cruises.


Have you cruised? If so what did you love about it? Where is your dream cruise location?

Be sure to enter the #CruiseSmile Sweepstakes. All the information can be found at

Good luck! I would love it if one of my readers was a winner!

  12. I have never been to one, but would love to get on board and experience joy of it:)

  13. I went on a cruise a few years ago with a friend and loved it! I would love to take my husband on a cruise now but his schedule just doesn’t allow for it with constant deployments and unpredictable times home. Best of luck at winning!

  14. I have never been on a cruise before and because I get very travel sick it is not my favourite thing in the world but I have plenty of friends that would love to go. I have always wanted to travel and it is lovely that a cruise gives you so many options.

  17. Eeeek, cruises scare me! I just dont think I could enjoy it. Nice giveaway.

    I’ve never been on a cruise, but have wanted to go on one for years. Winning a cruise in this sweepstakes would be the perfect excuse/opportunity to go on one finally.

  19. I’ve taken a few cruises and enjoyed them but haven’t attempted to bring my kiddos along on one….I guess that’s my next hurdle to jump!

  20. This is such a great giveaway, thank you for posting this! I have never been on a cruise, but I did have the opportunity to go to the Caribbean last October, but I moved to China instead (long story haha)

  21. I have cruised to the Bahamas twice and loved it! I would really like to take a cruise to Alaska! Just for something a little different…

    1. Stacey says:

      Cruising the Bahamas sounds wonderful! I have had so many wonderful things about cruising Alaska – such great scenery!

  22. I’ve never been on a cruise and in the current financial market I doubt I’ll ever afford one. Great giveaway 🙂

    1. Stacey says:

      Well then I hope you get a chance to enter! You never know 🙂

  23. We love cruising and just booked a last minute 3 night cruise for our anniversary next month! I’m not so much a port person as I am a chill around the boat type, so it usually doesn’t matter where we go, but I definitely love, as your interview guest said, the convenience of unpacking once and being in a floating resort to wherever.

    1. Stacey says:

      OH – lucky you! Happy Anniversary! I hope you have a wonderful trip. Yes, unpacking once would be a luxury. I have never traveled that way.

  24. Oh wow! Thanks for sharing. Steve and I have not taken a cruise together and hope to very soon.

    P.S. You look too cute in the sunglasses.

    1. Stacey says:

      Thanks! They sent me the glasses as well as a selfie stick 🙂 Gavin and I have not cruised together either Gavin has cruised but I never have – one day 🙂

  25. Stacey, Love the sunglasses and thanks for sharing the chance to win a cruise! We just came back from a Scandinavian cruise and I can’t wait to do it again.

    1. Stacey says:

      I have been loving your photos! And it is really making me look forward to my trip to Copenhagen to visit my daughter.

  26. Sheila Madrieres says:

    I was a travel agent for many years and I was very fortunate to take a few cruises. I have to say one of my favorites was down the Mississippi on the American Queen. Another to top the list was the maiden voyage on Holland America’s Statendam. You wouldn’t have to ask me twice to take a cruise !!!!

    1. Stacey says:

      Sheila, I think I missed the boat on working in the travel industry! I don’t know why I never tried that route. Wish I had.
