Carnival Cruise Line has resumed calls to cruise ports in the Bahamas and continues supporting Hurricane relief efforts.
41 Port of Calls in the Bahamas!
Even though the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco were devastated by Hurricane Dorian the majority of the Bahamas remains open for business including for cruise ships. Carnival Cruise Line remains committed to the region and has a total of 41 port of call stops this month.
The cruise line will be calling to Nassau, its private island Half Moon Cay and its private destination Princess Cays. The private destinations are also shared with sister lines Princess Cruises and Holland America Line.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“Thank you to all who have joined us to support our friends in the Bahamas with donations”
“Our work to assist and support continues. And as our ships and our guests return to Bahamian ports of call, our visits will make sure that our guests experience the beauty of The Bahamas and that the economy moves forward and jobs will be supported.”
Bahamian officials have thanked the cruise line for its support but do want to spread the fact that much of the island country is open. There are many cruise line private islands located in the Bahamas and they are opening back up for cruise ships including the Royal Caribbean’s CocoCay which opened on Saturday.
Carnival cruise ships will also continue to make calls to Freeport, Bahamas to deliver much-needed supplies to the residents including meals, water, medical supplies and much more. Carnival Pride and Carnival Liberty will be making deliveries in the coming week and even more in the future.
Parent company Carnival Corporation has also pledged $1 million towards Hurricane relief along with another $1 million from Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation.
