Carnival Cruise Line Delays Announcement on Extending Suspension

Carnival Cruise Line was set to make a major announcement today related to its suspension of operations but that has now been delayed.

Some extra good news today for people still needing help after the devastating Typhoon Haiyan which caused massive damage to the Philippines in November. Carnival Corporation and Miami Heat have announced that the original donation of $500,000 is to be increased to $1.5 Million!

The amount includes donations from all the Cruise Lines which are part of the Carnival Corporation, Miami Heat basketball team which is owned by Carnival chairman Micky Arison, Carnival Foundation and Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation.

Those of you who have already cruised on any Carnival ships would know that the majority of the crew members are from the Philippines so the increased donation will be a welcome to those crew members affected and their families. The company is also still offering help to those crew members who need it. Crew members on Carnival ships have also put on crew activities and events to help raise funds for ongoing Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts.
