Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Contest Gives Consumers a Chance to Make Maritime History by Naming Norwegian’s Project Breakaway ShipsÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
MIAMI – July 18, 2011 – Norwegian CruiseÂ Â Line (“Norwegian”) today announced it has partnered with the national dailyÂ Â newspaper USA Today to launch a naming contest dubbed “Norwegian’s Cruising forÂ Â Names” for the cruise line’s two new next generation Freestyle Cruising shipsÂ Â scheduled for delivery in April 2013 and April 2014. The contest runs fromÂ Â today through August 14, 2011 and the winners, who will be announced inÂ Â mid-September, will receive a trip for two to the first ship’s inauguralÂ Â festivities.
TheÂ Â cruise line is looking for names for its two Project Breakaway ships thatÂ Â reflect the innovation of the brand along with the freedom and flexibility ofÂ Â its signature Freestyle Cruising and invoke the feeling that these ships provideÂ Â a “break” at sea from the stress of everyday life.
“WeÂ Â know how passionate cruisers are about new ship launches, so it seems onlyÂ Â fitting that we look to them to help name our two Project Breakaway ships,” saidÂ Â Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to beÂ Â partnering with USA Today and specifically with its Cruise Log blog, which weÂ Â know gathers some of the most avid cruisers thereÂ Â are.”
To enter,Â Â contestants should head to www.cruisingfornames.usatoday.com,Â Â fill out the entry form and submit a name that starts with “Norwegian.” ThereÂ Â is no maximum amount of entries per person. The winners will receive a trip forÂ Â two to the first ship’s inaugural festivities, including the ChristeningÂ Â Ceremony (date/location yet to be determined). The trip includes round-tripÂ Â coach airfare for two, ground transportation, balcony stateroom accommodationsÂ Â (double occupancy), on-board meals, as well as government taxes and fees.
TheÂ Â contest is only open to residents of the UnitedÂ Â States and Canada (excluding Quebec) 18 years of age and older. For moreÂ Â information on how to enter and for the official rules and details on theÂ Â prizes, visit www.cruisingfornames.usatoday.com.
