Congratulations to the voter who won the grand prize:
Tatiana Ovalle, of Miami!

Tatiana was born and raised (and still lives) in Miami, a city she calls “the cruise capital of the world.” She has enjoyed cruising all her life and developed such a passion for cruising that while pursuing her Masters in Interior Design, she completed a certification in Cruise Ship Design at Florida International University, and now works designing the interiors of cruise ships.

We hope you enjoy your 3-night stay at the sumptuous Terramar Luxury Apartments on the island paradise of Bonaire, including a private balcony with ocean view and room for up to five guests … and thanks for voting!
