As we announced on Monday, CruiseDeals.com is going to giveaway an inside cabin on the 7-night Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas Alaska Cruise departing Seward on August 26th, 2011. This cabin will be given away on Facebook or Twitter.
We have noticed the following strategy being deployed by the serious contenders:
The contest is pretty basic… if there are 43,000+ fans on CruiseDeals.com Facebook page Thursday Night at 11:59 PM ET then the cruise will be given away on Facebook. If there is not 43,000 fans on CruiseDeals Facebook then someone who has been sharing the #Cooloff promo on Twitter will be eligible to win.
Here is the strategy to make sure you are ready to win whether it is given away on Facebook or Twitter:

The reason CruiseDeals is giving away the cruise on Twitter if 43,000 fans is not reached is because on Twitter you can tell who shared the contest.
