Luxury Cruise Vacation!  This past spring we decided to mix things up a bit at 10xT by giving away a luxury cruise vacation + airfare + a variety of extras to one lucky reader (and a plus one of their choosing).

There was no sponsorship or hidden agenda to this, we just wanted to have some fun and make someone’s day. So we put together a prize package that would make for the trip of a lifetime for just about any winner.

Have a look for yourself:

  • Two tickets to a luxury cruise vacation of their choice, up to $3,000 in total value
  • Round-trip airfare
  • Ground transportation to the ship
  • $200 cash for onboard expenses
  • Two pairs of sunglasses of their choosing
  • Two 10xTravel t-shirts

Thousands entered, but only one could win. And that one was Ted Lechterman!

Congrats Ted!

This is where things got a little interesting. You see, when we launched this promotion I had an idea in my head of how things would go.

The winner would likely choose a luxury cruise vacation departing from Florida or California, visiting the Caribbean, Hawaii, etc. Standard cruise stuff. After all, the contest was only open to U.S. citizens.

And Ted is indeed a U.S. citizen. He just happens to live in Germany.

Which made for two firsts:

  1. Ted is the first international recipient of a 10xT t-shirt #MrWorldwide
  2. This is the first time that 10xT has ever booked an international cruise

Ted opted to book a Mediterranean luxury cruise vacation on the MSC Sinfonia that made stops in Italy, Croatia, and Greece over the course of its 8-day voyage.

It looked awesome to say the least. Ted’s got the photos below to prove their luxury cruise vacation.

A big thank you to all who entered and congrats again to Ted!
