2022 and 2023 Cruise Sweepstakes You Can Enter to Win a Free Cruise!

Would you like to win a free cruise? Here are the sweepstakes in 2022 and 2023 offering a free cruise to a lucky entrant picked at random.

I’m also including free cruise contests, where entrants are judged on a skill (such as writing an essay) to win a cruise.

If you’re dreaming about a luxurious vacation getaway, why not enter some of these cruise sweepstakes and contests? All it takes is a few minutes to enter each one online.

Most of these cruise sweepstakes and contests are open to legal residents of the US (although some sweepstakes may be open to residents of other countries). I’ve included flag icons next to each cruise contest listing so you can easily see which cruise sweepstakes you’re eligible to enter.

Good luck, and I hope you win a free cruise!
