Norwegian Cruise Line And LEGO Group Challenge Kids To Build The Ultimate Cruise Ship

Miami – Sep 13, 2007 – Calling all LEGO® lovers! Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) and the LEGO Group have teamed up to present NCL’s LEGO Cruise Ship Building Challenge exclusively for LEGO Club Members. Young builders are invited to create the ship of their dreams with LEGO bricks, all for a chance to win a seven-night Western Caribbean cruise for four aboard Norwegian Sun, sailing out of Miami.

“NCL has always encouraged guests to ‘go their own way,’ so we’re excited to partner with LEGO Group and invite kids to construct their vision of the ultimate cruise ship,” said Colin Veitch, president and CEO of NCL Corporation. “We look forward to seeing how contestants bring their imaginations to life and rewarding the winners with a Freestyle Cruising family vacation.”

After building their LEGO cruise ship, kids can enter the contest by submitting a photo of their creation along with a 500-word essay describing their masterpiece. One winner will be selected from each of three age groups: six to nine, 10 to 14 and 15 and older.

Official entry details can be found in the September/October issue of LEGO Magazine, at or at by entering CLUB code: CRUISE. NCL guests can also visit any ship’s Kid’s Crew for additional details and sign up to join LEGO Club. Kids sailing on Norwegian Pearl will be able to build their creation on board while participating in the Kid’s Crew and take a photo home with them to submit via the contest rules.

The LEGO Cruise Ship Building Challenge begins September 14 and ends November 9, 2007.
