RCCL Doubles Hurricane Dorian Bahamas Financial Donations

I know there are a lot of charities and companies getting involved in Aide to the Bahamas, but I wanted to share what my employer is doing and also let you know they are matching financial donations, so, if you are donating cash feel free to donate through this link to have it doubled: https://www.padf.org/hurricane-dorian-royal

The Bahamas isn’t just a long-time destination for us; it’s home to more than 500 employees who work at Perfect Day at CocoCay and the Grand Bahama Shipyard.

So, in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, we’re rolling up our sleeves to help.

We are committing $1 million to Dorian disaster relief, and ITM—our partner in the Holistica joint venture that is developing the Grand Lucayan resort in Freeport—is also donating an additional $100,000.

To make sure our donations go where they can do the most good, we are collaborating with the Bahamian government and our non-profit partner of more than 15 years, the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF). We’re also connecting with our network of Bahamian charities and other local organizations, including the Bahamas Feeding Network.

We know you want to help too, so we’re matching every dollar of guest and employee donations to PADF. Please visit this link to get started if you would like to contribute. You may also share the link with friends and family.

We are loading all kinds of goods onto our ships—generators, water, cleaning supplies, clean sheets, towels, and more—for direct delivery to the Bahamas. The trained employee volunteers of the GO Team are assisting with relief efforts and we’re taking special care of our colleagues and their families who were affected by the storm.

We can’t make every bad memory of Dorian go away. But we can start making things better—today.
