9 March 2018

2018 has been very lucky for one Paradise Cruise guest, who has won USD 3,000 in a prize draw — simply just for booking and staying on a Paradise Cruise between 23 December, 2017 and 13 February, 2018.

The Jackpot Deal was officially drawn on 28 February by Mr Cao Son Nguyen, Paradise Vietnam’s Chief Operating Officer, and Mr Jack Gilkes from Minneapolis, USA has been announced as the winner.

There were more than 500 entries into the draw over the seven week period.

“At Paradise Cruise, we believe that the holiday excitement begins before our guests even start their journey,” said Mr Edgar Cayanan, General Manager of Paradise Cruise. “And during Christmas and New Year, when there is no better time to explore Halong Bay, we wanted to give our guests an even more thrilling start to their holiday with an entry into our Jackpot Deal.”

The Jackpot Deal was conceptualised as an exciting way to value-add for guests who chose to cruise on one of Paradise Cruise’s vessels during the festive season.

“I do not think there is a better way to start the year! I have never won anything as valuable as this before. When I entered this lucky draw, I could not imagine that I would be luckier than hundreds of other entries. Not only did I get to enjoy my holiday on the best cruise ship in Halong Bay, I have just been given the money to spend on my next holiday thanks to Paradise Vietnam” – said Mr Gilkes.
