I got mine by entering the talent show. Sang a song to a full house, It was the largest crowd I had played to up until that point. A lot of fun though.
I was in the final 10 on the slot tourney, didn't win, got the T-shirt...
my husband played survivor on the sensation and paradise and wons ships twice once for 4th place and once for second...he got the champagne also they are a cute souvenir maybe this april he'll win number 3 he makes it look easy!
On the Cruisemates Spirit Cruise my husband and I went into the trivia game with Karen and Ray....We won. We passed our hard won ship on a stick back and forth as we tried to win another one. The last day Karen finally won another ship so we now both have our Gold. Mine (and I guess still part their's) sits proudly on my mantle where I can keep it shined up. That was the first time I had seen this prize and the first time I was able to play a game so I guess I was lucky.
My sister won one during the talent show our last cruise for reciting an original poem. Next cruise, I think I'll get up on stage and sing "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" until they give me one. Or better yet:
"It was midnight on the sea,
the band was playing Nearer, My God to Thee.
Fare thee well, Titanic, fare thee well." [I would love to find that album on CD] :-)
I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!
Sensation 2/03 I disembarked, but never really left the ship.
Enchantment 9/03 Just had to go back.
Inspiration 3/04 Just have to go back again, and again, and again...
Sensation 04/05 The vessel made me do it!
As a former Assistant Cruise Director with Carnival. If you participated in the activities throughout the week and never won, then nicely asked me at the end of the week. I would just give you a ship on a stick. Or what i call "A twenty--four carat gold plastic piece of ship on a stick." Just ask. They'll give you one. We have millions of them.
