Pamcakes and I are sitting in my living room discussing this event. While it seems like a novel idea, by the time we add airfare and gratuities, it is a little out of reach. It sounds like a great time, but just not affordable. Perhaps we can come up with some type of gathering for a weekend that is more cost effective and a mid-country location?

If you come up with an alternative, you will probably find there is interest. In addition to the cruise being out of reach for some sweepers, it is during a Jewish Holiday for others, and they are unable to attend. Anyone can host a sweepstakes gathering. Please let us know what you come up with.

Winners never quit and quitters never win!

I am going on the Sweepers Escape and I can't wait for this super event. Hundreds of sweepers have already registered! They even give away $100 every week for those signed up for the cruise!
I saw above that you might think this week long cruise on, a beautiful new ship was a little high in price. I'm not the host but I thought I'd post some things to consider:

You cruise cost includes cabin, all meals, and entertainment, and beautiful ports of call. Days at sea is when the convention will be held in the large theater with many, many prizes, speakers and fun ship board activities. Sharing a cabin with a 3rd or 4th person really brings costs down. but balcony cabins are a great deal too.

To keep it simple , there's 2 steps to going to the convention. First register: for the convention (lower price before Dec 31st)

Second register for the cruise with everyone's info that will be in your cabin:

That's it! Welcome aboard as they say!

Glad to see you post morninggirl! I enjoyed Vegas too! This is a super place to find a roomie. My roomie is a sweeper too. There will be little time that you'll be in your cabin-just for sleep and so much else to do! If you are a member of any other big sweeps sites you might be able to post there as well. good luck, hope you find an great OLSer soon!

Hurry Hurry Hurry
If you are thinking of going on the National Sweepstakes Cruise: the Sweepers Escape, time is short to 'get onboard'! Gwen, the convention host just posted that among the inside cabins, only the 1-2 person cabins are still available (no 3&4 person) and only about 20 balconies are left!! So hurry

Here's the convention webpage with all the info, blog, pictures, schedule and the ongoing contest:
http://www.sweepersescape.com/

If you love cruising come along with 100s of others in our hobby. The convention sessions are all scheduled during the 'at -sea 'days, so you won't miss any port activities or night-time fun.

How to do this? It's easy in only 2 steps:
1. Register for the convention (includes all sessions and hundreds of free prizes, see web page)
http://www.sweepersescape.com/convention-registration
2. Get your roomie's info and sign up for a cabin ASAP:
https://www.maxcelreg.net/Gr2Web/Reg...strantTypeID=1

Then mark you calendar and chart a course for the Port of Miami in Sept. and when you register be sure to check out that
"other activities" header and sign up for that on board scavenger hunt! See you soon!
