NCL’s second annual Walk for Wellness challenge kicks off in Australia and NZ

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has officially launched its second annual Walk for Wellness challenge, with over 1,000 travel agents across Australia and New Zealand registered to participate.

NCL is also inviting agents to make time for mindful moments this October with its very first mindful colouring book for adults.

Walk for Wellness is timed to coincide with a number of mental wellbeing initiatives in Australia and New Zealand, including Australia’s National Mental Health Month, New Zealand Mental Health Week and WHO World Mental Health Day on 10 October.

Walk for Wellness is designed to encourage friendly competition and a sense of community amongst travel agents from Australia and New Zealand, as they track their steps towards a combined goal of 100,000 kilometres – the distance Norwegian Prima will cover during her inaugural sailing season.

NCL’s mindful colouring book, Colour Your World, will allow agents and their clients to tap into the benefits of art to help improve mental wellness.

Colour Your World is filled with stunning illustrations showcasing some of the spectacular destinations which will be visited by Norwegian Prima as part of her inaugural sailing season, from Russia to Norway, the Baltics and beyond.

In addition, an illustration of the ship itself has been produced by Manuel di Rita (aka Peeta0, who designed Norwegian Prima’s striking hull artwork.

Travel partners – and their clients – can download the colouring book as individual pages to print at home from NCL’s Marketing HQ.

Damian Borg, director of sales for Australia and New Zealand at NCL, said: “Undoubtedly, the past 18 months have been challenging for the travel industry. However, as we near the end of border restrictions, there is a real sense of growing optimism.

“We want to celebrate this moment in time, but also our valued travel community by re-energising, re-connecting and getting ready for the rebound.

“To all our Walk for Wellness participants, today’s the day to lace up those runners and start pounding the pavement – and importantly, take the time to focus on your wellbeing.”
