Carnival Cruise Lines To Raise $1.5 Million For American Red Cross Relief Efforts

Monday, September 17, 2001
Carnival Cruise Lines will donate $50 for each stateroom sold over the next 30 days to the American Red Cross to aid in relief efforts associated with the recent terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C.

The $50 per cabin donation is expected to generate approximately $1.5 million for the American Red Cross, continuing Carnival's decade-long association with the world's foremost relief organization.

Carnival, like other companies throughout the world, wanted to help the victims of the tragedy, while providing its guests and travel agent partners an opportunity to share in the relief efforts, according to Carnival president Bob Dickinson.

"We were deeply saddened and horrified by the events of Sept. 11 and wanted to offer our assistance any way we could. With this $50 per stateroom donation, our guests and travel agent partners, along with our company and its employees, are doing their part in enabling the American Red Cross to help those affected by this inconceivable tragedy," he said.
