Nominate a teacher to win a free cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line

Have a special teacher you would like to nominate to win a free cruise?

Norwegian Cruise Line is encouraging travelers to "give joy" to teachers with the chance of a free cruise.

For the fourth year in a row, Norwegian is celebrating educators by giving away free cruises to 20 teachers across the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec).

The cruise line is soliciting nominations for the giveaway on a special contest website,. People can then vote for who they think deserves the free cruise in an online poll that runs through June 9.

The winning teachers will receive a free cruise that originates from the United States or Canada on any current Norwegian Cruise Line ship, according to a press release.

The top three grand prize winners will get a special prize as a guest on the Christening Voyage of Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, Norwegian Viva, which departs from Miami in November.

We are proud to once again launch our Giving Joy campaign and to continue to celebrate the very important role teachers play in our community and for our youth, as well as to reinforce the connection between travel and education. We believe educators are a powerful source of inspiration, just like travel, where both aim to broaden perspectives, connect people around the world and bring awareness to different cultures and experiences. My wife is a second grade teacher, and I see first-hand the passion that goes behind connecting with and motivating students each and every day. It is an honor to award these hard-working educators and commend them for their dedication to their students. We look forward to welcoming them on board our ships and providing them with an unforgettable and well-deserved cruise vacation.

David J. Herrera, President of Norwegian Cruise Line
