NCL's 'Giving Joy' campaign to reward educators

Norwegian giving joy campaign
In advance of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10) and the North American debut of Norwegian Joy, Norwegian Cruise Line is leveraging the ship’s name for a campaign to reward educators in the US and Canada.

Travel as education

'Travel is a powerful means of education,' Norwegian president and CEO Andy Stuart said. 'It brings people closer to each other and to diverse cultures around the world. It promotes awareness and understanding. It broadens perspectives.'

Through the 'Giving Joy' campaign, Stuart continued, 'we celebrate the power of education and travel, and reward teachers who have taken responsibility for our future, our children, and who lean into that responsibility with all they’ve got.'

Chance to win a cruise and $15,000 for a school

In the campaign, running through April 12, company seeks nominations of certified or accredited teachers in the US and Canada who are inspiring joy in the classroom. The 15 teachers with the most votes will win a seven-day cruise for two. They also will be provided airfare and accommodations for an award ceremony taking place in Seattle on May 3, where they will have the chance to win $15,000 for their school.
