Norwegian Cruise Line is partnering with USA TODAY to hold a naming contest for the line's two newest Project Breakaway vessels that are set to launch in April 2013 and April 2014. The ships, holding approximately 4,000 passengers, will be the largest in the Norwegian fleet.
If you're clever - or even if you just think you are - get brainstorming and help Norwegian Cruise Line coin it's next big ship.
The Florida-based company is 'cruising' around to 'sea' if anyone is smart enough to name their newest cruise liners.
The contest runs from now until August 14th. The winner will receive a trip for two to the first ship's inaugural festivities, including the Christening Ceremony. The trip includes round-trip coach airfare for two, ground transportation, balcony cabin accommodations (double occupancy), on-board meals and all government taxes and fees.
To enter, visit cruisingfornames.usatoday.com, fill out the short entry form, and submit a name that starts with Norwegian.
The company released a statement that they would like the name to reflect the innovation of the brand along with the freedom and flexibility of its signature Freestyle Cruising. Freestyle cruising is the company's motto of cruising without a schedule. There are no set dining times, no assigned tables, and a relaxed dress code. Guests can also choose the activities they participate in while on the boat, they can take dance classes, try surfing or golfing, or spend all day by the pool.
Entries should highlight the fun, relaxed vibe of the company and the brand, who regularly cruise to the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, Bermuda and Hawaii as well as other places around the world, including Australia.
Past ship namees include:
Pride of America
Dreamward Norwegian Dream
The contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec) 18 years of age and older. Contensants can submit as many entires as they like.
