Carnival Cruise Gives Teen Free Vacation For His Snapchat Handle
RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Finally, they made the teenager an offer he couldn't refuse - a free cruise for his family on the company's new ship. Now, all he has to do is come up with a new Snapchat handle - maybe @winning. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
