Virginia Kid Offered A Free Cruise For His Snapchat Handle

posted by Katie Butchino -

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?
