In advance of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10, 2019) and the North American debut of the cruise line’s 15th ship, Norwegian Joy, the company is leveraging the ship’s heartwarming name for a compelling campaign that acknowledges and celebrates the intersection of travel and education by honoring deserving teachers that are doing the most to bring joy to their students.

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

It promotes awareness and understanding…it broadens perspectives.  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.”

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Giving Joy campaign runs from March 12 to April 12, 2019.
