What You May Win

The photo with the most votes will win the grand prize: a seven-night Western Caribbean cruise for four aboard a choice of either Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas or Freedom of the Seas, with airfare to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. included. The ships are fun for the whole family -- while mom and dad sun on the deck, enjoy a relaxing massage or take in a Broadway-style show, the kids can join the complimentary Adventure Ocean program that offers age appropriate activities for younger cruisers and teens, ranging from toys, music and crafts developed exclusively for Royal Caribbean by Fisher Price and Crayola, to science labs and teen-only parties. Plus, both ships feature the DreamWorks experience, including character breakfasts, parades, 3D movies and entertainment! (Can we come too?)
