15-year-old Darian Lipscomb from Prospect, Virginia had no idea that his Snapchat Handle @CarnivalCruise would eventually land him a free cruise. Although, I am not really sure why he created a Snapchat with that handle in the first place, it was a pretty sweet deal that Carnival Cruise offered him.
The Cruise line rolled into Lipscomb's town this week on a hunt to try and find Darian, the owner of the Snapchat. In hopes of finding him, they hung up signs reading 'Hey Prospect, does anyone know Darian?'
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that after finding him, the company offered him and his entire family a cruise aboard their new ship, Carnival Horizon. The net worth of the trip is a whopping $5,000.
He will also receive customized surprises throughout his entire trip. Which will of course be documented on the cruise's social channels, and NEW Snapchat! Carnival says that it was a very fun way to not only get the handle, but to ultimately reward a 'superfan.'
Do you think this was a fair trade?
