Win a Free Cruise!
That's right, you can win a free cruise for two on Harmony of the Seas. Just by making a quick and easy post to your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts.
I knew that would get your attention, so I figured there was no sense in delaying the most important news in this post. The full details follow, but first, let me tell you how this whole contest came to be and why I am the first one telling you about it.
This weekend, I'll be boarding one of the best new cruise ships to come along in years. Sailing on Carnival Vista, with all of its amazing restaurants, bars and activities, will be awesome enough. So will the fact that I'm cruising down to the Caribbean, which is one of my favorite destinations -- especially because it's December, and I live in New Jersey.
But what makes this cruise special is that I will be sailing with hundreds of cruise professionals onboard Carnival Vista for the Cruise One, Cruises Inc and Dream Vacations national conference. This means I'll have access to the people who know the most about cruise travel.
They have years of expertise and all sorts of good tips. I am going to be roaming the ship all week and sharing our cruise experiences so you can see why I love this type of travel so much.
As you know, I'm a big cruising fan, and I share a lot about what I learn about cruising on this website every day. But I'm always amazed by how much more I can learn just by being around fellow travelers.
I'll be seeking out new advice, money-saving tips and ways to have a better cruise as I hang out with the pros from Dream Vacations. If you have never cruised and are interested in knowing exactly what these trips can offer or if you are a veteran cruiser, I urge you to follow along and join in during the week.
Ask your burning questions about cruising, and I'll work to get you answers. Mainly, though, I'll just be enjoying the cruise and showing you what it's all about.
Go ahead, fire away! Post questions in the comments below this post or on any of my homes on social media -- where you also can see what we're up to on Carnival Vista from December 3 to 11 as we sail out of Miami and stop at cruise ports in Grand Turk, the Dominican Republic, Curacao and Aruba.
Follow along on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to look for daily posts, photos and info about this cruise and cruising in general. Look for the hashtag #MyDreamVacation.
As I said, this is a unique opportunity. I'll be cruising with cruise experts.
What do they know that can help you enjoy a dream vacation?
Speak up: What do you want me to ask? Are you considering your first cruise and want to know what to expect? Are you a veteran cruiser looking for new ways to have fun, save money or pack?
It's extremely easy to enter.
Now, here come all those sweepstakes details you've been looking for.
Just tell the world all about your idea of a dream vacation by posting to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and using the hashtag #MyDreamVacation. The contest runs from December 3 to December 9, and the winner gets a 7-night cruise for two on Harmony of the Seas.

Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you join in the cruise conversation all week.
