Norwegian Cruise Line Is Giving Free Cruises to Teachers This Spring

Norwegian Cruise Line is launching a campaign to show its appreciation for educators by giving away free cruises to inspirational teachers.

Ahead of Teacher Appreciation Week in May, the cruise line is seeking nominations of educators who are “spreading the joy of learning” in their classrooms. From now through April 12, 2019, anyone in the U.S. or Canada can nominate their favorite teacher to win a free cruise on the Norwegian Joy. Teachers can even nominate themselves.

Once nominated, anyone can vote for their favorite teacher or share their submission on social media to gain more votes. After April 12, 15 lucky teachers will be chosen as finalists.

Finalists will win cruise travel for two on a seven-day trip, airfare, and accommodations to an award ceremony where the teacher has a chance to win $15,000 for their school. So, not only does the teacher get a well deserved vacation, the school they work for gets a well deserved financial boost that will benefit both students and educators alike.

“Travel is a powerful means of education. It brings people closer to each other and to diverse cultures around the world,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line in a statement. “Through our Norwegian Cruise Line Giving Joy campaign, 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.”

It’s true that many educators believe travel and education go hand in hand. In fact, 74 percent of teachers in a study commissioned by the Student and Youth Travel Association (SYTA) think that students who travel are more successful, and that travel can have far-reaching positive impacts on students’ careers and education.
