CRESTVIEW — Florida residents can nominate deserving family caregivers, including themselves, for the chance to win a free five-day, four-night cruise.

The cruise — Feb. 3-7, 2014, on the Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas — sets sail from Cape Canaveral, with stops in CocoCay and Nassau, Bahamas.

The Home Instead Senior Care network’s franchisor will sponsor the trip for one caregiver and a guest. The winner also gets 40 hours of free care from a Home Instead Senior Care professional for his or her senior loved one while away.

The cruise offers optional activities such as putt-putt golf, cocktail hour, cupcake decorating and scavenger hunts, along with support groups and one-on-one consultations with family caregiving expert Dr. Amy D’Aprix.
