Thunder 98 Radio Cruise Contest!

There used to be a time when cruise holidays were considered to be a luxury, a privilege reserved only for the rich and famous, unless of course you were a stowaway, who eventually gets caught halfway through the trip, and ends up being forced to walk the plank! Okay, so maybe I’m thinking of a movie with pirates and parrots. I suppose it isn’t really that extreme, but basically, not everyone was fortunate enough to get a chance to experience the frills of the huge floating holiday resort.

Nowadays, you will find that there are increasingly more opportunities for just about anyone to experience the spoils of cruise entertainment. The travel market has become so competitive that it has pushed most travel agencies and cruise companies to drastically drop their prices in a promotional effort to increase their customer base, and thus making sufficient sales to stay afloat! (see what I did there?) This has in turn made cruise ticket prices a little more affordable for your average Joe.

You may not have noticed if you aren’t really tracking the cruising world, but the actual cruise liners have multiplied tremendously too. This means that there are more of them out there trying to win the hearts of all you cruisers out there.

The other factor that is quite noticeable, that has opened the doors even to families with financial struggles, is that there are a great deal of sources hosting a range of cruise contest giveaways. You don’t need to look far to come across one of these contests, you simply need to open a newspaper or a magazine, turn on the television set or just have a listen to the radio, and you could be one step closer to going on an awesome cruise getaway, for free!

THUNDER 98 Radio wanted me to answer 3 music questions to get vouchers, I did and won 2 tickets to the Bahamas!  I’m attempting to go in October with my fiancé! If you get a call from them you’re a lucky one! They are a great example of one of these giveaways, where the listeners of this top 40 web radio station have not one, but several chances to win free tickets on an exotic cruise. If you haven’t already heard of them through your social networks, then they are worth checking out. I have seen them run contests where they have given away Caribbean cruise tickets and they are now giving away Bahamas Island cruise tickets.

It makes me wonder, how do all these guys manage to give away free tickets? Do they get them at really low prices and then pass them on as prizes. I decided to look into it, and it turns out that, well, for the station I mentioned at least, that they get sponsored by these massive cruise liner companies, who donate cabin tickets towards the prize pools. I suppose this works out well for the cruise liners, because it increases their publicity and brings in the customers.

It’s great to see that you don’t have to be rich to have a good time on a cruise, you just have to be smart, and shop around for the best deals!

    I spoke with a rep and yes the cruise is free. However, the agent did tell me the government departure taxes and port fees are required to be paid in order for the cruise line to release your tickets.

    I have cruised before, but this is one of the best cruise I’ve been on. The live shows that they have at night are wonderful. The magic shows, the reggae, the comedians was fun. If you wanna go on a cruise, this is the place to be. It’s the best place to be.

  31. Gilbert Holt

    Once we got to the hotel, the Grand Lucayan; that was just a couple of days to relax. We didn’t do any excursions, we just bounced between the beach and pool, and the restaurants, and we just enjoyed taking our time & seeing the beautiful sky and beaches.

  32. Fernando Swanson
    Apr 17, 2017

    We’re celebrating our two year anniversary & we really enjoyed this cruise. We had two days on the ship and two nights on the island, Port Lucayan, Grand Bahamas in 3 days. We stayed there, we just relaxed on the beach. We did some kayaking and we enjoyed the stay on the boat.

  33. Minnie Lloyd
    Apr 17, 2017

    There is stuff for children, stuff for the elderly, there are things that will make you laugh & memories you’ll never get over. As far as the island, the shopping is phenomenal! We have never had a cruise, this is our very first one and don’t listen to what people tell you about sea sickness.. it doesn’t happen! I don’t care how crazy your stomach is, and we will absolutely do this again!

  34. Jeffrey Hall

    We just wanted to getaway, just to relax for a while & we decided to take this weekend cruise which turned out to be very good. I got a lot of rest, we went in town, we had some great meals. The entertainment was outstanding, great band, great piano player. I would recommend everybody to take this cruise. We went in town, we went to the beach, went for a swim, did some shopping, had a frozen strawberry daiquiri that was outstanding too! It was just great. We went over to the Port Lucayan, Grand Lucayan resort which was absolutely gorgeous, and we got to swim to the most beautiful pool; overlooking the ocean which was really awesome!

  35. Boyd Perkins

    We drove from Kansas down to Florida, met the ship and parked our car at the harbor, at the port and then we jumped on board, and we had a wonderful night. A day and a night down to the island of the Bahama, and we had a wonderful time on the ship. We moved over to the island, the Grand Lucayan hotel where we stayed and we had the 7th floor. We had a balcony that overlooked the ocean, so we had a wonderful time. I mean, it was beautiful. The people were beautiful. We had a wonderful time, there was no fear, no apprehension of any haggling or.. the people were really friendly on the island. We went to the bonfire & we did snorkeling, and we did parasailing, we had a great time with all that. We’re on our later 50’s, so it was plenty good for us, it was plenty safe. We had a wonderful time, I mean this is our first time on a vacation like this and we’d love to come back.

    We went to the Bahamas and we stayed four nights on the island. The cruise offer was wonderful, we had all kinds of food. Even my picky husband found food he could eat. It’s a beautiful cruise and the island is absolutely beautiful. We got drinks for free, and our food free, we had a great time and I think people need to come! It’s great.

  37. Sheila Hicks

    Checking in was good, and yesterday when we arrive the rooms were very spacious and we thought the rooms were very nice and ver much spacious than what we had in the past. We got off the boat and we went on the shopping trip over to the hotel on the island, Lucayan. The hotel was beautiful, the pool was beautiful, the beach was beautiful, we did some shopping. I got my grand babies a couple of little dresses to wear to church when they get back over at the market. That was really exciting, we came back and just chilled out and the bus was there right on time to pick us up, because we wanted to come back and chill out a little bit. So, we came back, we had a nice lunch and we just went back and chilled out and get ready to go to dinner. I can’t wait to do this again, this was just absolutely awesome!

  38. Roosevelt Garrett

    We had a really good time and I will tell you about the ship first; on our first night here, we went to the Admiralty club and had one of the best dinners we’ve ever had. Escargot, the steak, the lobster, everything was really good & I can tell you it rivals any 5-star restaurants that we have been to in the past; we really enjoyed it. We have done some other things, we really had actually a lot of leisure time where we just kind of done a lot of rest and relaxation, but I will tell you one thing.. One of the best things here is the bar that plays the piano and it’s called the Commodore’s Bar. It’s sort of a hidden secret and I will tell you, it’s a lot of fun. If you ever got a chance to be here for that, you really would think you would enjoy it.

  39. Darren Norris
    Apr 17, 2017

    This trip was wonderful, we came for our 12th wedding anniversary and everyone here is wonderful. We went on a jeep excursion that was phenomenal and this place is amazing. The food is excellent, everyone is attentive to your needs and making you that you’re happy & you’re having a wonderful time. In addition to that, this is one of the cruises where everybody.. all the staff on the service, everybody always asks you how you feeling today; that really gives you a warm welcome & I would recommend anybody to come

  40. Lula Ballard
    Apr 17, 2017

    We’ve made a lot of acquaintances and heard a lot of great stories. The food is continuous, always there whenever you’re hungry and our room has been very comfortable

    Apr 17, 2017

    They had rave at night, we went there on our last night.. we had a blast! That was fun! The drinks are all good and strong. Karaoke was fun last night, karaoke is really fun. We had dinner at Stellar Prime, that was good.. the curry chicken was really good. I had the angus burger, cheddar cheese.The people here are amazing! They take care of you, they accommodate you in every single way possible!

  42. Julius Glover
    Apr 17, 2017

    We’ve met so many nice people from Australia, from all different parts of the world on here. I would recommend it just for the atmosphere of the ship. If anybody wants to have you can either have a real wild time here dancing and swimming, and stuff where you can just go to the library and read a book and be quiet. So my wife and I would recommend it very highly.

  43. Leon Hansen
    Apr 17, 2017

    We came with 2 kids, they enjoyed everything the kid’s playground, playroom & it’s beautiful! We’ve been at the casino while we got the bonus of $50 to play and spa, two swimming pools, casino and the view was magnificent! So, I invite everyone who’s tempted to come because it’s a great experience.

  44. Stanley Ortega
    Apr 17, 2017

    All the activities are great, they have family feud, they have 70’s show last night, everything has been great. The food is great and I will highly recommend it.

    This is a first time cruising experience from me, we are from Florida. I’ve never been on a cruise ship before, the cruise line treated us excellent we ate at the Stellar Room one night, the Prime Rib was cooked to perfection, the desserts.. I actually left there with belly ache eating too much. It’s our one year anniversary they brought us out a special cake that said “Happy Anniversary”.

  47. Genevieve Blair
    Apr 17, 2017

    We took our cruise to Grand Bahama Island, it’s actually a very friendly island, a very lovely island, it has a lot of natural beauty. The cabins here on the boat are actually really nice and there’s a lot to do, a lot to keep you occupied. So definitely, we would recommend Grand Celebration to everybody.

  48. Oscar Little
    Apr 17, 2017

    You know what’s the great about this is the way that we got introduced to this which was a random call and we thought, this has to be fake, there’s now way this is real and the thing is it wasn’t like.. whatever they promised to us is what we got; it came through completely.

  49. Alonzo Rice
    Apr 17, 2017

    The rooms are really clean, very spacious, you don’t go without. There’s restaurants, always food, very clean, the food is good quality, you have quite a bit to choose from. I really don’t have any complaints

  50. Maggie Griffith
    Apr 17, 2017

    Every time we left the cabin and came back, it was nice and clean, our beds are always made more than we expected. They were really polite, it smelled really good in the room. The shows were really nice, they had everything lined up perfect, really good actors and when we get home, we need to recommend this to all the family and friends; and we will be back. We’ll be back for our next anniversary.

  51. Omar Guerrero
    Apr 17, 2017

    Remember to drive on the left, they do that here in the Bahamas and definitely we would recommend the entire family and everybody to come on this cruise. I think its a really good deal for what you get, I’m pretty blown away. So, we appreciate it and hopefully you guys try it. We highly recommend it.
