    LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - Have a favorite teacher that has brought joy to your life?

    If you nominate them, they could win a free cruise by the Norwegian Cruise Line in advance of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10).

    The cruise line is launching a campaign to show its appreciation for educators by giving away free cruises to inspirational teachers.

    They want you to nominate an educator who demonstrates a passion for spreading the joy of learning. You can also nominate yourself.

    The top 15 nominees will get a free seven-day cruise for two, an exclusive invitation to an award ceremony on May 3 in Seattle (including airfare and accommodations), and the chance to win the grand prize of $15,000 for their school.

    Once nominated, anyone can vote for their favorite teacher or share the submissions on social media to get more votes.

    The 15 finalists will be chosen on April 12.

    "Travel is a powerful means of education. It brings people closer to each other and to diverse cultures around the world," said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line in a statement. "Through our Norwegian Cruise Line Giving Joy campaign, we celebrate the power of education and travel, and reward teachers who have taken responsibility for our future, our children, and who lean into that responsibility with all they've got."
