Bid and cruise on the Melody for a song

2010-11-24 00:00

BID now and you and your partner could be leaving Durban on January 26 on a six-night cruise in a luxury ocean-view cabin on the Melody — valued at R18 400.

The three highest unique bids opened at noon on Friday will each secure a cruise for two on the Melody, including all meals and entertainment.

To win, you and your travelling partner must be able to produce valid passports immediately. Payment of the price you bid will be required right away to secure your trip.

SMS 34419 and the words “Witness Cruise Bid” followed by your surname and your bid.

Bidding starts at R100. No cents will be accepted.

The highest bidder will be advised by phone this Friday. The two next highest bidders will be awarded the next two cruises.

Check The Witness every day for the highest unique bid received the previous day.

The cruise price bid is not refundable if the winner cannot travel on the set date, but the tickets may be transferred if The Witness is advised of the new travellers’ details a full two weeks before the cruise.

The editor’s decision is final, and no correspondence will be entered into. The auction is not open to staff of the Witness group or immediate family.

Yesterday’s highest bid was R12 789, and bidding continues today.
