Norwegian Cruise Line has a great new promo. From now through April 12, you can nominate a great teacher you know to win a free cruise aboard Norwegian Cruise Line. Once a teacher’s nominated, anyone can vote for that teacher. After nominations close, 15 educators will be chosen as finalists and they will win a seven day trip, airfare, and accommodations for two to attend an award ceremony. At that ceremony, each teacher will have a chance to win $15,000 for their school. I know several teachers at the school near and dear to my heart that would love your nomination!

I am always getting requests for all-inclusive in the US.   They are few and far  between in the US.    However, the first ever all-inclusive in the Florida Keys is  now open.   Bungalows Key Largo is located on the northernmost island of the Keys, just 63 miles from Miami.  It is an adults-only property.

Just a little humor tonight.  Hopefully, you’ll be able to open this video.
