Final Chance to Reward Educators with Norwegian’s ‘Giving Joy’ Prize Money and Free Cruises

Kelly Clarkson & Norwegian Cruise Line: Celebrate Teachers with Free Cruises and Exclusive Concert

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) is making a final call for nominations and votes of deserving educators for its award-winning Norwegian’s Giving Joy campaign closing on Friday, June 3, 2022.

The annual recognition program, which relaunched on May 2, 2022, during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2 – 6), serves to recognize and reward 100 teachers across the U.S. and Canada with a free cruise, as well as a chance to win up to $25,000 for their school. The educators with the most votes will travel to Galveston, Texas for an exclusive five-day sailing aboard the Company’s record-breaking ship, Norwegian Prima, from Oct. 27 to 31, 2022, where GRAMMY Award-winning artist and superstar Kelly Clarkson will host an exclusive concert on board.

“This campaign holds a special place in our hearts and with the incredible participation we are seeing, it is clear that it is just as important to many others,” said Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “We are now in the final stretch of this year’s Norwegian’s Giving Joy contest, and we cannot wait to honor the next class of winners with a well-deserved vacation aboard our highly anticipated Norwegian Prima ship.”

The annual program which recognizes the connection between travel and education and celebrates teachers for their unwavering dedication to inspiring students every day, has awarded 130 teachers with free cruises and over $185,000 to schools since 2019.

This year, in addition to the exclusive sailing aboard Norwegian Prima, the top three grand prize winners will receive an additional seven-day voyage for two from the U.S. or Canada, as well as a $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 donation respectively, for their school.

Now through June 3, 2022, Norwegian Cruise Line is encouraging nominations of certified or accredited teachers in the U.S. and Canada. To nominate a beloved teacher, to vote and for the contest terms and conditions, please visit
