Norwegian Cruise Line has partnered with USA Today to launch a naming contest dubbed “Norwegian’s Cruising for Names” for the cruise line’s two new next-generation Freestyle Cruising ships scheduled for delivery in April 2013 and April 2014. The contest runs from through Aug. 14, 2011, and the winners, who will be announced in mid-September, will receive a trip for two to the first ship’s inaugural festivities.
The cruise line is looking for names for its two Project Breakaway ships that reflect the innovation of the brand along with the freedom and flexibility of its signature Freestyle Cruising and invoke the feeling that these ships provide a “break” at sea from the stress of everyday life.
“We know how passionate cruisers are about new ship launches, so it seems only fitting that we look to them to help name our two Project Breakaway ships,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s CEO. “We are excited to be partnering with USA Today and specifically with its Cruise Log blog, which we know gathers some of the most avid cruisers there are.”
The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 18 years of age or older.
