Norwegian Cruise Line has annnounced the 100 winners of its ‘Giving Joy’ campaign.
One hundred teachers across the U.S. and Canada were gifted an exclusive cruise on board NCL’s upcoming Norwegian Prima. And in addition, the company is donating USD $50,000 to schools across North America.
It’s part of Nowegian Cruise Line’s annual recognition program celebrating educators in the U.S. and Canada.
The winning teachers will embark on a five-day cruise aboard the upcoming Norwegian Prima, during its inaugural voyage from Galveston, Texas from 27 – 31OCT 2022, where GRAMMY Award-winning artist and superstar Kelly Clarkson will host an exclusive concert on board. A special award ceremony will also take place to honor the educators, and to announce the top three Grand Prize winners who will each receive $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000, respectively for their schools.
“We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate and reward these classroom warriors with an incredible vacation on board our newest, beautiful ship, Norwegian Prima,” said Harry Sommer, president, and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.
“Each of these educators dedicate themselves to their students and their communities. Their role is to broaden their students’ horizons with new experiences, and now we are honored to have the opportunity to do the same for them.”
This year, winners hailed from British Columbia and Ontario in Canada as well as from across the U.S.
The annual Norwegian’s Giving Joy program is designed to highlight the connection between travel and education and to recognize teachers for their unwavering dedication to inspiring students every day. By the end of this year, the program will have awarded 230 teachers across the U.S. and Canada with free cruises and donated over $235,000 to schools since 2019.
