Ever find yourself drifting off thinking about what you’d do with $10,000?
An adventurous trip to Morocco, 500 puppies, a one-way business class ticket?
Luckily, few of us will ever be faced with the difficult decision of what to do with $10 grand in cash.
Unluckily for Brunella Carchidi, from Flight Centre Leichardt, she has been suddenly faced with this unenviable decision.
Ok, maybe we’re trying to make ourselves feel better here.
What we should really be saying is, “CONGRATULATIONS BRUNELLA!”.
Yesterday, Flight Centre’s Brunella Carchidi took home the top prize today at Royal Caribbean’s Biggest Giveaway Ever, winning a cheque for AUD$10,000.
Second prize winners included Anne Calder from Oz Cruising ACT and Jasmine Allen from Flight Centre Henley Beach.
Jasmine has won a place at the inaugural sailing for Symphony of the Seas in April 2018 and Anne has won a place on Celebrity Edge’s inaugural trade sailing in December 2018.
The incentive was held to celebrate Royal Caribbean’s 10th birthday down under this season, and to thank its Australian and New Zealand travel agents for their ongoing support over the past decade.
10 finalists flew to Sydney for the main event at Hacienda, Circular Quay where they played the final round for a chance to win $100,000.
Throughout the incentive, hundreds of Aussie and Kiwi travel agents took home spectacular prizes, including two eight night South Pacific cruises – one on Ovation of the Seas and another on Celebrity Solstice – 100 $50 EFTPOS cards and 300 movie tickets.
“I’m absolutely over the moon! It’s been an amazing day and to top it off, I’m going home with ten thousand dollars,” said Brunella Carchidi, the lucky winner.
“We’re incredibly proud to have reached our 10 year milestone, and this incentive is the perfect way to thank our agents for all their support.
“We couldn’t have done it without them, and we look forward to working together in the future to grow this incredible industry,” said Peter McCormack, Head of Sales, Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia.
