In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 8-12, 2023), Norwegian Cruise Line is once again launching its award-winning Norwegian’s Giving Joy contest – rewarding 20 teachers across the U.S. and Canada with a seven-day cruise for two. The top three Grand Prize winners will win an additional, and exclusive, voyage aboard the soon-to-debut Norwegian Viva, the second ship from NCL’s all-new Prima Class.

Over 230 Free Cruises Awarded To Date

To date, Norwegian’s Giving Joy has awarded over 230 educators with a free cruise vacation and donated over $350,000 to local schools and teachers with the support of its brand partners.

On Norwegian's Giving Joy program, Norwegian Cruise Line President David J Herrera says:

"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.”

Now through June 9, 2023, NCL is encouraging the public to nominate certified or accredited teachers in the U.S. and Canada who have made an impact in their life and inspire students each and every day by visiting nclgivingjoy.com.
