Atlantis Events giving away three oceanview staterooms in contest

WEST HOLLYWOOD _ Need a break from this unseasonably wet and bone-chilling San Diego weather? Want to trade these cold raindrops and windchill for the warmth of the sun, while you bask from the deck of a luxury liner? How about giving up another mundane week at the office for a trek through the Caribbean with 2,800 other gays and lesbians?

If you said "yes" to any of those questions, Atlantis Events has a contest that would allow you to do just that (as long as you are 21 or older).

With the “Sail into the Sunshine Sweepstakes,” Atlantis Events will give away three oceanview staterooms. Enter by filling out an online form no later than Feb. 15.

“We’re giving a few lucky guests the chance to beat the winter blues and ‘Sail into the Sunshine’,” said Oscar Yuan, vice president of sales and marketing at Atlantis. “And there’s no better way to do that than to sail the Caribbean with 2,800 other gay and lesbian guests while being entertained by Atlantis’ best talent, world-famous DJs, and an endless schedule of activities - all compliments of Atlantis.”

Winners will be selected at random.

Atlantis’s "Exotic Caribbean Cruise" will set sail from Ft. Lauderdale on March 7, and weave through four locations in the eastern Caribbean over seven days. The staterooms being given away retail for more than $3,000 per person. Note: Sweepstakes winners will be responsible for all port fees and taxes, as well as transportation to and from Ft. Lauderdale.

The Celebrity Solstice will visit Coco Cay, St. Barts, St. Thomas, and Samana, Dominican Republic, before returning to Ft. Lauderdale. The Solstice was rated the No. 1 rated mega ship in Conde Nast Traveler’s 2009 Readers’ Choice Awards.

The prize has no cash value and may not be redeemed in any other manner. Other rules and restrictions may apply. Reservations for all Atlantis programs are available through local travel agents or directly from Atlantis toll-free at (800) 6-ATLANTIS.

Atlantis Events is the world’s largest travel company specializing in the gay and lesbian market.
