  • Carnival Cruise offered 15-year-old Darian Lipscomb a free vacation for his Snapchat handle.
  • He had been posting as @carnivalcruise since he was nine.
  • The company mounted an ad campaign fronted by Shaquille O’Neal dedicated to finding him — and offered the cruise package when they tracked him down.
  • Lipscomb accepted, and is being taken to Barcelona with his family for the maiden voyage of the company’s newest cruise liner.

Carnival Cruise gave a teenage boy a free vacation in exchange for the @CarnivalCruise Snapchat handle he’d been using since he was nine years old.
