Norwegian Cruise Line has launched its “Encore Moments” campaign that recognizes and rewards everyday heroes across North America.
The launch of the new promotion coincides with the debut of its newest ships, Norwegian Encore, which will debut in November.
Through the campaign, the cruise line is encouraging the public to nominate those who deserve applause for their positive impacts on friends, families and communities.
This campaign was developed after the success of Norwegian’s Giving Joy campaign that recognized 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 and families, and within their communities,” added Stuart. “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.”
The Encore Moments campaign runs through October 18, 2019. It will recognize and reward 52 people around the U.S.—one person from each state including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
The 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.
Airfare and accommodations will also be provided for attendance at an award ceremony, scheduled to take place in New York City on December 16, 2019.

Travel advisors will earn commission on the deposit as well as locking in new bookings for the future with full commission, less applicable savings.
“Our travel partners are part of the Crystal family, and we remain dedicated to supporting their business and working with them through these unprecedented times,” said Carmen Roig, Crystal’s senior vice president of marketing and sales. “The Crystal Assured Savings program equips them with an honest, simple tool – and meaningful savings for their clients – to continue to grow their luxury business and share the Crystal Experience with travelers who are looking to explore the world at a later date.”
The additional savings of 2.5 percent are on top of other Crystal special savings that may apply including two-for-one fares, Book Now Savings, Crystal Society Savings, Early Final Payment Savings, Back-to-Back Savings, Combination Voyage Savings and available future cruise credits.
“The Crystal Assured Savings is a win for our clients, given the array of opportunities to lock in savings on Crystal’s incredible luxury experiences now, as they look ahead to traveling again in the future,” said Eric Maryanov, president of All-Travel in Los Angeles. “Likewise, the program presents a wonderful chance for travel advisors to stimulate business during today’s uncertain environment, while also building a strong foundation for tomorrow that will keep their businesses growing. With Crystal Assured Savings, Crystal is making it possible for the travel community to stay connected and inspired beyond the challenges we are currently facing, and helping advisors weather the storm.”
Another advisor agrees. “There is no better time to start planning a Crystal vacation, with so many savings opportunities available to both new and returning guests. … Crystal’s new program helps ensure that we all sail through this time together,” said Leah Bergner, senior travel advisor for Coastline Travel Advisors in Orange County, Calif.
