Win one of 1,000 Virgin Voyages cruises

Virgin Voyages, the newly launched Virgin Group cruise line, is giving away 1,000 free cruises for two people.

You can’t win one for yourself, but you can nominate someone in your life who you feel has gone above and beyond the call of duty over the last year.

You need to make your nomination by video, 60 seconds maximum, and submit it by 16th March.

Whilst cruises operate from Miami, to the Caribbean, and Barcelona, for the Mediterranean, the prize winners must take a cruise from Miami. The boats are ‘adults only’.

Entrants must be residents of “Canada (excluding Quebec), the United Kingdom (England, Scotland and Wales only), or one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia, and be 21 years of age or older. Entrants may not nominate themselves.” Northern Irelands seems to be deliberately blocked due to the strange rules on competitions which are in force there.
