This December Norwegian Cruise Line is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and is offering some great incentives to sail on select cruises.

The cruise line was formerly known as Norwegian Caribbean Lines and started on December 19, 1966, with the M/S Sunward vessel. Now 50 years later NCL is inviting former employees and just about everyone who has experience NCL to upload their photos and stories to a special website which showcases the past 50 years with the cruise line. Those taking part also get a chance to win a Free cruise.

Andy Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer for Norwegian Cruise Line said:

“We are celebrating fifty years of incredible moments aboard our ships and it’s the people — our guests, travel partners, team and crew members — who make our history so special.  We wouldn’t be here today without their loyalty and dedication.” said Andy Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer for Norwegian Cruise Line. “We invite everyone who has sailed with us, commemorated a special occasion with us or made memories onboard to share their favorite moments and celebrate our first fifty years along with us.”

“We invite everyone who has sailed with us, commemorated a special occasion with us or made memories onboard to share their favorite moments and celebrate our first fifty years along with us.”

Norwegian Cruise Line is also offering special anniversary cruises this December where guests can join in the celebrations. These anniversary cruises also offer a special holiday bonus of $100 in onboard credit, perfect for purchasing last-minute holiday gifts in one of the onboard boutiques or to toast to the New Year with a relaxing and indulgent spa treatment, and more.  Best of all, it’s combinable with Norwegian’s Free At Sea offer, to make for a merry holiday vacation experience for all.
