Christmas Photo Competition

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Hollywood FloridaThe festive season is well underway. Everywhere you go the colorful decorations are up, Christmas music is playing on the radio, over the speakers or even live. I love Christmas! So many wonderful things happen at Christmas time. People actually seem nicer at Christmas time. More forgiving, more helpful. Now I’m not saying they aren’t like this year round, it just seems to stand out more at Christmas. Maybe I’m just more aware of it at Christmas than at other times of the year.

Anyway I’m digressing…We just returned from a two and half week business trip. While we mainly stayed in the Fort Lauderdale area we did get to fit in a two-night cruise on the wonderful new Celebrity Reflection and then a five-night cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas. Before and after the two night cruise we got to stay in a couple of different hotels. All the hotels and ships were decked out in amazing decorations for Christmas. I LOVED IT!!

While at our first hotel, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, I took my first Christmas photo – yes it is a little blurry but that’s okay. After taking this photo it got me thinking about the Christmas Market River Cruise we took last year and all the Christmas trees and decorations we saw in our travels. Then the brain started kicking a few ideas around. What if we got all our fans to post their Christmas photos of places they are traveling to. We could collect an amazing Christmas album of decorations, especially trees, from around the world.

So here we are. We want you to post a photo of yourself in front of a Christmas tree where you are traveling or visiting over the Christmas season. We would love to see photos of trees on cruise ships, in hotels, at resorts, etc. The first picture we took, yes the blurry one, is posted above. If you would like to submit your picture then go to our Facebook fan page ( and post your photo on the fan page. We also want you to vote for your favorite Christmas picture too. The top five photos with the most likes will receive a $25 Starbucks gift card. So start posting your photos and get your family and friends to vote on our fan page for their favorite photo.

Oh and if you are submitting a photo make sure you fill out the form below so if you win you we know where to send the Starbucks card!
