“Travel is a powerful means of education. It brings people closer to each other and to the various cultures from all around the world,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line in a statement. “By our Norwegian Cruise Line the Give Joy campaign, we celebrate the power of education and travel, and rewarding of teachers who have taken responsibility for our future, our children, and that lean in that responsibility with everything they have.”
