Norwegian Cruise Line is giving free cruises to teachers this spring

Tramino/iStock(NEW YORK) — Everyone has that one teacher who made school feel filled with joy.

Norwegian Cruise Line wants to celebrate those incredible teachers with a free cruise.

“Joy” is the theme for a good reason: the cruise line will debut the Norwegian Joy in North America in May 2019.

NCL is giving a seven-day cruise for two to 15 teachers in the U.S. and Canada. Nominate an educator who demonstrates a passion for spreading the joy of learning (or, if you are one, nominate yourself!). Tell NCL how your candidate is bringing joy to the classroom, then cast your vote.

The top 15 nominees will receive a free cruise for two, an exclusive invitation to an award ceremony on May 3 in Seattle — including airfare and accommodations — and the chance to win the grand prize of $15,000 for their school.

Part of the cruise line’s Breakaway Plus class, the Norwegian Joy will sail from the West Coast year-round to Alaska, the Mexican Riviera, the Pacific Coast and the Panama Canal. It has an on board race track, laser tag, an outdoor promenade and perhaps most importantly for those teachers who give it their all: the Mandara Spa.
