What did you get out of the treasure hunt and contest (choose all that apply)?

I learned that Mediterranean cruising is for all seasons -- even winter

The treasure hunt took me to areas of this Web site I'd never been before

I made some new friends on the MSC Cruises forum

I know more about MSC Cruises due to this contest

I know more about the Mediterranean due to this contest

Cruising to the Mediterranean interests me more now

I've never sailed with MSC, but would love to now

Now I know who that smiling compass with arms and legs is!

I found the trivia/process too difficult/frustrating

Oops, I missed out on the fun...this time!

I was intriged at how much information is on this site that I missed because I wasn't looking for the info or was looking in the wrong places...by the last question, I read the clue, went right to the "news" and then had to go back to find out what year...some answers were found accidently...some were difficult...having never sailed any line but RC I would consider MSC now...
all in all I had fun and learned alot about Cruise Critic and MSC...

The contest was fun and allowed me to visit some new areas I haven't been to on this site before. Could have been a little more difficult though. Most of the trivia was too obvious.

Game was enjoyable but easy. It got me to thinking about booking a cruise with MSC until I read some of the critical cruise reviews about the line.

The answers to most of the questions were not difficult, but finding the correct page where the answers were contained was sometimes a challenge. It must have been enjoyable as I anxiously awaited each day's challenge.

I felt the same way!
I would seriously consider sailing on MSC in the near future.

I hope CC does something like this again soon!

I'm anxiously waiting to hear that I'm the winner!
