Princess Cruises has launched a Facebook contest inviting people to share their favorite travel experience for a chance to “check another place off their travel bucket list.”

The contest winner will be selected by popular vote, and will be able to choose from one of eight cruise destinations including Europe, Asia, Tahiti, Australia/New Zealand, the Holy Land, Panama Canal, Alaska or South America.

The cruise vacation choices range from 10 to 16 days in length in a balcony stateroom, and include round trip airfare for two people.




Users can submit their travel stories on the cruise line’s Facebook page in written form or video. People will be able to vote on the story they like the most, and the person with the highest number of votes will win a cruise vacation.

"We’re encouraging our Facebook fans to share an inspiring travel experience they think everyone should do at least once in their lifetime," said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president.  
"And the unprecedented aspect of this contest is that the winner gets to choose from among eight incredible cruise destinations, and cross yet another experience off their travel bucket list."

 Entries can be submitted any time until February 7, 2011.  People can vote for the story that inspires them most between February 11-25, 2011 and the winner will be announced on or around March 11, 2011.
