Join the 2009 Travel Bloggers' Caravan
Win Valuable Travel Prizes!

Cruise Diva is delighted to announce the first (and, hopefully, annual) Travel Bloggers' Caravan. Starting Dec 1st, I invite you to follow top travel bloggers for a chance to win prizes in celebration of the season.

Prizes range from hotel gift cards and overnight stays to digital cameras to luggage and camera bags to travel guidebooks and DVDs. Magellan's Travel Supplies has signed on as a sponsor of this event and if you've got a traveler on your holiday shopping list, you'll want to check out the unique gifts available at Magellan's website.

Each day, between Dec 2-15, a different travel expert's blog will be featured in this round robin event. You'll have a chance to win one of over a dozen prizes by simply reading and commenting on the daily blog post.

The Caravan starts Dec 2nd! Simply visit the Cruise Diva Blog each morning to learn about the featured Caravan "stop-of-the-day" between December 2 & 15, and then enter to win. The Cruise Diva Blog will be featured on Dec 11 so mark your calendar and be sure to comment on my post that day in order to be entered in the giveaway.

To get you started, there's a bonus Caravan Kickoff Prize: Visit Luxury Cruise Bible blog on Tuesday, Dec 1st and enter to win a Lingo 16-Language Translator courtesy of Magellan's Travel Supplies.
