Norwegian Cruise Line Donates New Billon-Dollar Ship to Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade



At a fun-filled event held at Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Hank Kline Club, longtime supporter Norwegian Cruise Line announced that it will donate its yet-to-launch billion-dollar ship, Norwegian Encore, for Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s 13th Annual “Wild About Kids” Gala. Andy Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line and longtime supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, was joined by his wife, Allison Stuart; Alex Rodriguez-Roig, President of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade; and City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez to make the announcement. The overnight sailing will take place on November 16 – 17, 2019 and will include access to Norwegian Cruise Line’s signature attractions such as the Speedway, its two-level go-kart race track; the Galaxy Pavilion, its more than 10,000-square-foot indoor virtual reality complex; and its open-air laser tag arena, designed as the resurrected lost city of Atlantis. Guests will also enjoy a variety of entertainment including a performance of “Kinky Boots,” the Tony Award®-winning musical. Sponsorships and tickets range from $1,750 to $100,000. 100% of the proceeds raised from sponsorship sales and cruise revenue from this monumental event will fund Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s many positive programs which help children realize their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
