The Carnival Liberty and Carnival Pride have both completed urgent Hurricane relief deliveries to Freeport, Bahamas.
Carnival Liberty and Carnival Pride Deliver Relief Supplies
Carnival Cruise Line is in full Bahamas hurricane relief mode and two ships in the fleet have this week completed delivering supplies to Freeport. The island was devastated by Hurricane Dorian in early September and cruise lines have since been making aid deliveries.
The two ships are the first from Carnival and dozens of pallets were offloaded at Freeport. Included were water, generators, chain saws, medical supplies and even prepared meals for the Bahamas residents.
The supplies will be distributed to the residents by the cruise line’s partners for its hurricane relief efforts. More Carnival cruise ships will continue delivering supplies to the island for as long as it’s needed.

Carnival Liberty delivered the pallets on September 12 during its 4-day Bahamas cruise out of Port Canaveral and Carnival Pride made its delivery on September 13 during the 7-day eastern Caribbean sailing out of Baltimore.
We already posted about the ships departing their homeports and taking on the dozens of pallets for their important voyages to the Bahamas. You can find out more here.
Carnival’s parent company and the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation have pledged $2 million for the residents of the Bahamas who have been impacted by Hurricane Dorian. The storm devasted Brand Bahama Island and Abaco Islands as a category 5 with maximum sustained winds of 185 MPH. The effort will no doubt continue and there are donations ongoing across the cruise line.
