Cruise joy for readers
WHEN Michelle Dawson received the call telling her she had won the trip of a lifetime in NewsLocal’s Carnival Cruise competition, she thought it was a not-sofunny practical joke.
“This isn’t one of my husband’s mates is it?” she asked. “Be honest, is this a joke?” It was no joke. The Dawson family, of Glenmore Park, will set sail on a 10-day cruise on board the Carnival January.
“It was such a great start to the week, we all honestly thought you were kidding when you called,” Mrs Dawson said.
“I will be pulling out the suitcases this afternoon and start planning for our adventure.”
NewsLocal received more than 15,000 entries for the chance to win one of four 10day family cruises on board
in the Carnival Legend, courtesy of Carnival Cruise Line.
Each prize is valued at more than $6500. The other winners were Julia Whelan, of Cremorne, Nicola Clement, of Surry Hills, and Lisa Collier, of Toukley.
All winners will depart Sydney on January 27 and visit Noumea and Vanuatu.
