Lottery players can enter Powerball® tickets from now through March 28 for a shot at winning 45 Caribbean cruise vacation packages to experience the first-ever Power Cruise sailing to Key West, Florida, and Cozumel, Mexico. Departing from Tampa, Florida, the five-night cruise onboard Royal Caribbean International’s adventure-packed ship, Brilliance of the Seas, will set sail on Jan. 15, 2018, giving trip winners plenty of time to plan for their vacations.

“This is a luxury cruise line,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “You’ll get Broadway-style entertainment in a three-story theater, mini-golf, pools, hot tubs, a sports court, fitness center with yoga and Pilate’s classes, a casino, and much more. It will be five days you will never forget.”

The Missouri Lottery is one of 25 U.S. lotteries that will be part of the Power Cruise campaign, which has chartered the entire Royal Caribbean ship exclusively for lottery trip winners from across the country.

Powerball players can enter the Power Cruise™ promotion by entering their tickets into their free My Lottery® Players Club. The Missouri Lottery will hold five prize drawings for the cruise packages, with 45 trips awarded.

Twenty-five of the cruise packages available to Missouri Lottery players (five per drawing), will be for Balcony staterooms onboard the ship; 10 prizes (two per drawing) will be for Oceanview staterooms; and 10 prizes (two per drawing), will be for Interior staterooms. Each vacation package for two includes: coach airfare to Florida; a one-night hotel stay in Tampa the night before the cruise departs; ground transportation from the airport to the hotel and to the ship; a stateroom on the Power Cruise, with two ports of call; primary gratuities paid for the stateroom attendant and dining room staff on the ship; and transfers from the port to the airport when the cruise has concluded. Plus, every bundle offers a $250 credit to spend onboard the ship for bucket-list excursions on land, Royal Caribbean’s Wi-Fi, VOOM – the fastest internet at sea; spa treatments or specialty dining.

Once Power Cruise sets sail, the excitement will really get going for the guests on board. Two-hundred $500 cash prizes will be given away to registered trip winners on the ship. And on the last night, one lucky registered trip winner onboard will receive a $50,000 grand prize.

Power Cruisers will also be treated to VIP concerts featuring rock group, the Goo Goo Dolls; rap artist Flo Rida, and pop singer Macy Kate. 

On Brilliance of the Seas, winners can set their own pace, whether in relaxation mode or seeking an active adventure. The award-winning ship’s features include spacious accommodations, Royal Caribbean’s signature rock-climbing wall, an outdoor movie screen, miniature golf, a fitness center, pools and whirlpools, the popular Vitality Spa and boutiques.

To enter the promotion, Missouri Lottery players must enter their tickets into their free My Lottery® account using Powerball tickets purchased from Feb. 5 through March 28.

Entry into the promotion started on Feb. 5, and the five drawings will be held every Thursday in March. During each drawing – on March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 – the Missouri Lottery will draw:

• Five first prizes – Consisting of a balcony stateroom with a sitting area, two twin beds, private balcony and bathroom.
