One of Royal Caribbean’s ships, Adventure of the Seas, is currently on a humanitarian mission that includes delivering relief supplies to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and St. Croix and helping to evacuate people trying to get off the islands. In addition, it has pledged to match donations made toward relief efforts.
Royal Caribbean is just the latest cruise company to lend a hand. Carnival Corporation, which includes Holland America and Princess, has joined forces with the Miami Heat Charitable Fund to also pledge much needed financial support to the islands. Norwegian Cruise Line, and sister company, Oceania, have also sent relief supplies and announced plans to make their own large charitable donations.
Earlier this month, airlines including JetBlue, American Airlines, and Delta slashed prices on flights out of Florida and the Caribbean in order to aid evacuation efforts.
