Norwegian Cruise Line wants kids and their parents to help name the line's new youth and teen programs. In a new “Up2YOU” naming contest, Norwegian is inviting cruisers to submit names for the overall programs as well as names for the age-specific portions of those programs.
The contest starts today and runs through February 13, 2012. Winners who name the new kids or teen program will receive a seven-day Caribbean cruise for a family of four.
Those who submit the winning names for the six age groups within the new programs will receive a $100 American Express gift card.
Norwegian announced earlier this month that it is revitalizing its current youth program and will begin implementing a fleetwide program starting with Norwegian Gem in mid-February. Eventually, all ships will have the new kids and teen programs.
“We want to ensure that we have the best youth programs at sea for the more than 150,000 children and teens that sail with us each year,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line's CEO. “In the spirit of Freestyle Cruising, we thought that the parents and kids who utilize the programs would be the best to suggest names for them. We are looking for lots of originality and creativity along with names that really speak to today’s kids and teens.”
To enter, contestants should head to www.ncl.com, fill out the online entry form and submit name options for one, any, or all of the following: the new kids program; the new teen program; and the six new age groups: six months to two years old; three to five years old; six to nine years old; 10 to 12 years old; 13 to 14 years old; and 15 to 17 years old.
There is no maximum amount of entries per person. The contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 18 years of age and older. Parent or guardians may submit entries on behalf of those younger than 18.
