Royal Caribbean to Deploy Fleet of Cruise Ships to Aid the Bahamas

Royal Caribbean International recently announced their partnership with the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) to assist in relief efforts following Hurricane Dorian. . The Bahamas has always been more than a destination for Royal Caribbean and our guests…The Bahamas is also home to more than 500 of our colleagues…So in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, we’re rolling up our sleeves to help our friends…, Royal Caribbean, via statement. Just as they did for Hurricane Maria in 2017, the cruise line intends to stock a portion of their ships with supplies to be delivered directly to the Bahamas. . These goods will include items such as cleaning supplies, generators and clean water. They’ve also deployed their trained employee volunteers, known as the “GO Team,” to give on-the-ground assistance. In addition, Royal Caribbean has pledged to donate $1 million and is currently coordinating with the local government to distribute it. . They also plan to match every donation, up to a total of $500,000, that is made to PADF for relief efforts in the Bahamas.
