In honour of Teacher Appreciation Week (08-12MAY 2023), Norwegian Cruise Line announced the launch of its fourth annual award-winning Giving Joy recognition program, which provides teachers with free cruises and the chance to sail on Norwegian Viva.
This year, NCL will award the top 20 teachers across Canada and the U.S. with the most votes a seven-day cruise for two. In addition, the top three grand prize winners will be invited to attend the exclusive Christening voyage of Norwegian Viva later this year.
"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," said David J. Herrera, President of Norwegian Cruise Line. "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."
Until 09JUN 2023, NCL is encouraging the public to nominate certified or accredited teachers in the Canada and the U.S. who have made an impact in their life and inspire students by visiting its website.
To date, Norwegian’s Giving Joy has awarded over 230 educators with a free cruise vacation and donated over USD $350,000 to local schools and teachers with the support of its brand partners.
