PLAYING THE NORWEGIAN NAME GAME
Norwegian Cruise Line (Norwegian) has launched the “Norwegians Name Their Ships” contest asking fans in five countries to help select the names for the line’s two new Breakaway Plus class ships.
From now through Sept. 24, Norwegian’s Facebook fans in Canada (excluding Quebec) have the opportunity to vote for their two favourite potential ship names from a list of the line’s top 10 name prospects. Those who vote will be entered to win a trip to the first ship’s inaugural festivities.
Norwegian’s new Breakaway Plus ships will be the largest in the line’s fleet at approximately 163,000 gross tons and 4,200 passenger berths each and will be similar in design and innovation to the line’s current Breakaway class, the first of which, Norwegian Breakaway, launched in New York in early May and the second of which, Norwegian Getaway, will launch in January and arrive in its homeport of Miami in February.
To enter, fans should go to Norwegian’s Facebook page and visit the Norwegians Name Their Ships tab. Once there, they will see a list of 10 possible names. They can vote once per day for the two names that they like best. Norwegian will pick one name for each ship based on the names that receive the top number of votes from the community.
Those who vote and complete the entry form will be entered to win a trip for two on the first Breakaway Plus ship’s inaugural festivities.
