The 6th Fortune Lounge Cruise
Happy guests, huge cheques, glasses of champagne and glorious scenery helped to make the 6th Fortune Lounge Cruise a resounding success. Of course, the excitement of a five-day onboard slots tournament helped too!
The luxury vessel, Celebrity Summit, departed from San Juan in Puerto Rico on 13 April, carrying our guests: 50 players and their partners. The boat stopped at the islands of Saint Croix, Saint Kitts, Dominica, Grenada and Saint Thomas before returning to San Juan seven days later.
As well as taking in some gorgeous scenery and pristine beaches on the various islands, our guests all had a chance to win fantastic prizes in an onboard slots tournament! The preliminary heats started off in the Celebrity Summit’s Fortune casino early in the cruise, and each night, the top players won cash prizes. Each evening’s winners and the players with the highest combined totals made it through to the nail-biting final on Thursday, 18 April.
After five days of frenetic gaming during the slots competition, Bernie O from The Netherlands won first prize, an enormous cheque for €20,000. Second-place winner, Volker M from New Zealand, took home a cheque for €15,000. Over €100,000 in prizes was given away during the seven-day cruise, as we tried to make sure that every player had a chance to win.
A combination of fine dining, new friendships, an exciting onboard competition and the mingling of players from 16 different countries made this a journey that will bring happy memories for years to come!
