Winners have been announced in Carnival Cruise Line’s “Keep On Rockin” Sweepstakes, which offered travel agents the opportunity to win a $10,000 cash prize, Carnival Horizon cruises, gift cards and more.

Each week during the contest period, which ran from Oct. 9 – Nov.5, Carnival asked agents to demonstrate how they “Keep on Rockin” in their job by responding to a question posed on Vice President of Sales & Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez’s Facebook page.

Travel agents participated by sharing examples through photos, written descriptions and videos, all of which were reviewed by Perez and a panel of industry leaders. Winners were selected based on criteria including creativity, originality and a Carnival “fun factor.”

Each week, five winners were selected and the $10,000 cash prize was randomly drawn from the 20 total weekly winners at the end of the promotion. All of the final 20 weekly winners won a seven-day European cruise aboard the new Carnival Horizon departing from Barcelona April 15, 2018.
