Power Cruise Promotion Offers Powerball® Players Chance to Win Exclusive Caribbean Vacation

Twenty Four Cruise Packages Up for Grabs in West Virginia as Part of National Powerball Promotion

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – West Virginia Lottery players who purchase a Powerball® ticket with the Power Play® option will receive a special coupon they can enter online or via mobile app, beginning February 5 and through March 29 for a shot at winning one of 24 Caribbean cruise vacation packages to experience the first-ever Power Cruise sailing to Key West, FL and Cozumel, Mexico. Departing from Tampa, FL., the five-night cruise onboard Royal Caribbean International’s adventure-packed ship, Brilliance of the Seas, will set sail on Jan. 15, 2018, giving trip winners plenty of time to plan for their vacations.

Powerball players can enter the Power Cruise™ promotion by using the code printed on the coupon. The West Virginia Lottery will hold six prize drawings for the cruise packages, with 24 trips awarded to players who enter with West Virginia Lottery tickets.

The West Virginia Lottery is one of 25 U.S. lotteries that will be part of the Power Cruise campaign, which has chartered the entire Royal Caribbean ship exclusively for lottery trip winners from across the country.
Twelve of the cruise packages available to West Virginia players will be for Balcony staterooms onboard the ship; six will be for Oceanview staterooms; and six will be for Interior staterooms. Each vacation package for two includes coach airfare to Florida; a one-night hotel stay in Tampa the night before the cruise departs; ground transportation from the airport to the hotel and to the ship; a stateroom on the Power Cruise, with two ports of call; primary gratuities paid for the stateroom attendant and dining room  staff on the ship; and transfers from the port to the airport when the cruise has concluded. Plus, every bundle offers a $250 credit to spend onboard the ship for bucket-list excursions on land, Royal Caribbean’s Wi-Fi, VOOM – the fastest internet at sea; spa treatments or specialty dining.

Once Power Cruise sets sail, the excitement will really get going for the guests on board. Two-hundred $500 cash prizes will be given away to registered trip winners on the ship. And on the last night, one lucky registered trip winner onboard will receive a $50,000 grand prize.

Power Cruisers will also be treated to VIP concerts featuring rock group, the Goo Goo Dolls; rap artist Flo Rida, and pop singer Macy Kate.

On Brilliance of the Seas, winners can set their own pace, whether in relaxation mode or seeking an active adventure. The award-winning ship’s features include spacious accommodations, the cruise line’s signature rock-climbing wall, an outdoor movie screen, miniature golf, a fitness center, pools and whirlpools, the popular Vitality Spa and boutiques.
