As anyone recently (ie: TODAY), tried this comp but not received a link to their prize?

I've just tried this and won a Mini Cruise for 2 people, entered details and received a "We look forward to welcoming you on board" email

But no booking link?

Dont you just go to their homepage and enter a promo code or something?

Either that or phone them!

I won 15% off and I had a link in the email they sent me.

would do if I had one.... have just emailed them - see what they say..

Hope you get your Mini Cruise sorted out. At least you haven't got too far to travel from Sunderland, however found out recently that there's a courtesy bus from Central Station! Hope it's still running as we're hoping to have a trip over to Amsterdam.

If you use Firefox, press Ctrl-Shift-P to turn on Private Browsing and play as many times as you want :-)

Ctrl-Shift-P to start private browsing
Play & close
Ctrl-Shift-P to stop
Repeat above

Have done it about 30 times and only won 1995 prices, the hotel one or free spin.

the xmas competition DID only let you play once regardless of cookies. either way, my first spin was Mini Cruise for 2 (without a link :x )

Does anything think / reckon we'll get it?

Original Poster

just rang, and as OP says, they are aware of the issue. Took name and contact details and will get back to me today.

touch wood its ok :thumbsup:

Paddy - when you won the cruise (well, andy won) was there any meals (ie: Brekky) included? I though you'd won a luxury room?

Original Poster

update, they're messing with the site.. I've just won another Mini Cruise for 2 and one for 4, but when you go to claim it, it refreshes the page.

Might be worth it, for anyone whose already one one, to spin it until you get what you won, and PRINT SCREEN it so you have proof.

UPDATE: DFDS have just rang, and given me the link and code for a Mini Cruise for FOUR people.. Only won one for TWO lol

Thinking about ringing back explaining what they've done, but asking if they can upgrade us ;-)

Room only, was too drunk to want breakfast. Suited us fine, plenty of beer selection of women (on the boat).

oh well, need to ring them and see if I can swap my 4 beth cabin for a 2 beth with seaview without paying lol .... otherwise it'll cost me £20 and I may have a spare (free of charge) cabin if anyone fancies a trip over the north east pond to Amsterdam :thumbsup:

same as ours then... then you need food as well on top of that.

Brekky is £9 each (all you an eat buffett which isnt too bad tbh)... we're going for brekky both ways fr £18 each as you can take bread rolls/ham/cheese etc for during the day, and on a night, well, a few beers will suffice as the cheapest "meal" is £20 all you can eat buffett (which is nice as well tbf), but, what started out as a FREE Mini Cruise for 2 or 4, will end up costing you a fortune, and for that "fortune" you could've went to Spain or Cyprus for a week

Nice little break none the less. We're aiming or 4 July sailing form Shields, returning 6 July if you free that weekend :whistling::thumbsup:

Ha - you could always take a Tesco bag full of goodies with you! £9 all you can eat is pretty good - could keep you going for a while till you get to a Mcd's.

Youre lucky youre up that way already - bit of a trek for us but worth it for a cheapie i think.

Northampshire.. bloody hell how fars that then from Newcastle.. We wouldn't have gone like if we lived further afield. To make it a complete "frebbie" you need to suffer a inside cabin, starve and smuggle some beer on board - oh and a pack of cards to play in ya cabin whilst ya drink ya beer lol

We went a cpl years ago - on another mini cruise I won ( a luxury one like that time ) but its nice to get away and see the sites :whistling:

Youre not selling it to me haha! I was looking to book this for hubby's birthday last year as it seemed a cheap way of seeing Amsterdam. We probably wouldnt ever go otherwise.

We are about 4 hours drive away!!

Your obessed with this breakfast disco. Take a bag full of goodies. You arrive in Amsterdam 9 or 10 so why you need brekky before that? You get back into Newcastle for 9 again why brekky? I was still asleep both ways when we docked.
