NEW YORK, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtuoso®, the luxury travel agency network renowned for creating exceptional experiences, has launched its eighth annual VIRTUOSO LIFE® Travel Dreams Survey and Sweepstakes. The survey, now available at www.virtuoso.com, helps travelers identify their travel style and compare it to those of their family, friends or other potential travel companions, ensuring travel compatibility. From there, participants can explore the destinations and experiences that top their personal wish lists. Whether setting sail for a world cruise, rocketing into suborbital space, enjoying a private island with loved ones, or calling on all seven continents, the Travel Dreams Survey is packed with inspiration.
Survey takers begin by determining their travel personality, which sets the stage for several destination and experience questions that come next. Once complete, participants receive a summary of their responses, which serves as a personal travel wish list. What to do with such a list? The experts at Virtuoso encourage would-be globetrotters to turn their dreams into reality by enlisting the assistance of a Virtuoso-affiliated travel advisor, someone with the know-how and relationships to make travel wishes come true. For those who do not have an advisor, finding the right one is just a click away. Virtuoso.com's new travel Advisor Catalog features nearly 2,000 qualified advisors, complete with a photo, profile, places visited, specialties and completely verified reviews from current clients.
"After completing the survey, share your personality and dream destinations with the world on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter," says Elaine Srnka, editorial director for VIRTUOSO LIFE. "It's fun, quick, and easy, and will remind you of all the wonderful places you've yet to visit."
Need ideas? Virtuoso has that covered, too, by offering a dreamy sweepstakes Grand Prize giveaway: a 14-day cruise for two in a penthouse cabin aboard Crystal Symphony, sailing from Bali, Indonesia to Singapore on December 7, 2014, with air courtesy of Etihad Airways. The total Grand Prize value exceeds $35,000. Virtuoso will also award five lucky winners with cash prizes of $1,000 to jumpstart their travel planning.
The VIRTUOSO LIFE Travel Dreams Survey and sweepstakes entry form with complete rules, terms, and conditions are available at www.virtuoso.com. (For residents outside the United State, sweepstakes does not apply. Please see survey for Official Rules.) The survey ends March 31, 2014.
