Want to win a free cruise on the new Carnival Vista just for taking a photo of a New York City sunset?
Now’s your chance through a fun social media contest that celebrates the unique phenomenon called “Manhattanhenge” – a New York City occurrence in which the sun aligns perfectly with the city’s grid, illuminating the north and south sides of every cross street.
City dwellers and tourists alike gather together to snap photos during the beloved Big Apple event which this year takes place on July 12.
Inspired by Manhattan’s awe-inspiring skyline and taking the Carnival Vista’s name to heart, the contest asks participants to snap their best photo of the Manhattanhenge phenomenon and upload the image on July 12 to Instagram, Twitter or www.bitly.com/showmeyourvista using the hashtag #ShowMeYourVista. One winner will be selected to win a free Carnival Vista cruise for two.
All approved images will appear on www.bitly.com/showmeyourvista and will be judged on creativity and originality by none other than “The Queen of Breathtaking Vistas,” Carnival Vista herself who even has her own Twitter account. Carnival Vista will announce the winner on July 15.
Carnival’s newest, largest and most innovative ship, Carnival Vista is set to debut in Europe May 1, 2016, operating a series of Mediterranean voyages before repositioning to New York for a series of departures in November 2016. Carnival Vista launches year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean service from Miami in December 2016.
