Win Your Next Carnival Cruise!

September 12, 2006
If you were stranded on a Carnival "Fun Ship," who would you bring?

The "You Cast Your Crew" contest, a joint creation between Carnival and American Movie Channel, won't have your family and friends drawing straws: If you win, you'll be able to bring up to 19 guests -- for free!

All Carnival and AMC ask in exchange for the free cruise is for you to visit CarnivalConnections.com to fill out a brief application with your personal information, and participate in a fun multiple choice survey based on your movie preferences.

To get an idea of what to expect, we visited the site and found a few sample questions:

Our group at the ship's pool will resemble the cast of:
"Caddyshack"
"How Stella Got Her Groove Back"
"Fast Times at Ridgemont High"
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off"

If you find our group in the ship's casino, we'll look like the cast of:
"Hard Eight"
"Casino"
"Ocean's Eleven"
"Viva Las Vegas"

Creativity counts! A short essay explaining why your cruise group should be chosen is also part of this three-step process.

The grand prize will be your choice of a Carnival cruise varying from three- to seven-day Caribbean itineraries for you and up to 19 guests, totaling up to $15,000. Ten second-prize winners will receive a rolling duffel bag stuffed with Carnival and AMC merchandise and a portable DVD player. We think a chance for the winning cast to star in an AMC production would be a neat perk; unfortunately, that's not part of the deal.

Before you start casting your next cruise, make sure you enter -- the deadline is Saturday, September 30, 2006.
