Norwegian Cruise Lines surprises studio audience with free cruise

Date Posted: 18 Dec 2009
Christmas has come early for hundreds of fans of the Ellen DeGeneres show thanks to Norwegian Cruise Lines, which presented them with a complimentary cruise holiday.

More than 300 in-studio audience members of the US comedian were given a surprise seven-day Freestyle Cruising vacation for two as part of the cruise line's contribution to the show's 12 Days of Giveaways.

Norwegian's Freestyle Cruising is designed to offer holidaymakers a more flexible cruising experience to enable them to have the freedom to enjoy their cruise with a variety of choices.

Expressing his "pleasure" with the contribution, Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line's chief executive officer, explained that Ms DeGeneres is "one of the funniest, most engaging personalities on television today".

He said: "We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate 2010 as the year to take a Freestyle vacation than by giving away cruises to Ellen's entire audience so that they can experience Norwegian's signature Freestyle Cruising for themselves."

The company recently said that it will kick off the next phase of freestyle cruising with the launch of Norwegian Epic in summer 2010.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
