In an effort to continue celebrating exceptional people in our communities, Norwegian is launching “Encore Moments”, a campaign to reward everyday heroes for the positive impact they have in the world. The campaign is kicking off ahead of Norwegian Encore’s debut and will recognize the good works of individuals across the U.S. and Canada by awarding a cruise to one winner from every state and province. This initiative was developed on the heels of the brand’s wildly successful Giving Joy campaign which recognized and rewarded teachers who spread joy in the classroom.


“We are in the people business, delivering positive, memorable experiences around the world,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “We believe it is very important to make the time to celebrate and thank the people whose acts of kindness and compassion make a difference in the lives of their friends, families and communities. We are very proud and excited to launch Encore Moments and we encourage the public to bring these hometown heroes to the forefront for a well-deserved encore.”

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Encore Moments campaign, which runs from Sept. 18, 2019 to Oct. 18, 2019 will recognize and reward 52 people across the U.S. (one person from each state including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico), and one person from each of Canada’s provinces and territories (excluding Quebec). The 64 nominees with the most votes in their state, province or territory will win their choice of a three-to-five-day cruise for two on almost any Norwegian Cruise Line ship. They will also be provided airfare and accommodations for an award ceremony taking place in New York City on December 16, 2019.

Norwegian Encore will cruise to the Caribbean from Miami in November and then make her way to New York City in April, where she will sail to Bermuda in a variety of 5-7 day itineraries. Norwegian Encore features the largest racetrack at sea, extending 13 feet over the side of the ship and the Galaxy Pavilion, an immersive virtual reality gaming experience. Passengers will also be able to enjoy amazing entertainment on board with the Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots and Choir of Man.
