$10,000! What would you do with $100,000? Pay off a credit card? Put it towards your education debt? Book a much-needed holiday? Spend a couple of nights at a celebrity spa? Share it between your favourite charities?

Maybe rent a boat on the Harbour and host the ultimate party with your closest friends? Such a tough decision, but there’s only one person who really needs to worry about making it – Flight Centre Leichardt’s Brunella Carchidi.

Brunella won the cash prize from Royal Caribbean after entering the cruise line’s Biggest Giveaway Ever.


The incentive was held to coincide with celebrations around Royal’s 10th season in Australia and saw 10 finalists compete in Sydney for the chance to win $100,000.

Brunella came in first and managed to score herself $10,000.

She said she was absolutely “over the moon” and couldn’t believe she was going home $10,000 richer.

Prizes were also given to second place winners, Anne Calder from Oz Cruising ACT won a lace on Celebrity Edge’s inaugural trade sailing, and Jasmine Allen from Flight Centre Henley Beach won a place at the inaugural sailing for Symphony of the Seas.

Throughout the incentive, hundreds of Aussie and Kiwi travel agents took home spectacular prizes, including two eight night South Pacific cruises – one on Ovation of the Seas and another on Celebrity Solstice – 100 $50 EFTPOS cards and 300 movie tickets.
