The competition’s lucky winner is New Zealand-bound aboard the “wonderful surprise” cruise.

Sailing on the Celebrity Eclipse, Kathryn Vennemann will be taking her lucky spouse on a sailing to New Zealand.

“My husband is turning the big 5-0 at the end of the year…” she says “I haven’t told him yet. I still don’t believe it’s real.”

“New Zealand is such a stunning place,” she continues. “And it’s right on our doorstep, who wouldn’t want to go?”

While she has cruised before, it has been a long time and not to New Zealand. “[I] just loved how you unpack once, but see so much,” she says about the convenience and ease of cruising.

When it came to her win, “to say I was a bit shell shocked would be an understatement. I don’t win anything.”
