Ball­go­wns for bush­fires

Cruise Weekly - - News -

CAR­NI­VAL Cruise Line guests aboard the Car­ni­val Splen­dor and Car­ni­val Spirit this week were chal­lenged to raise $5,000 for the Aus­tralian Red Cross Bush­fire Ap­peal - a goal that was well and truly ex­ceeded with a grand to­tal of $15,200 col­lected from pas­sen­gers.

As part of the chal­lenge and “in the spirit of fun and mate­ship”, Car­ni­val Cruise Line’s Cruise Di­rec­tors Lee Ma­son (Car­ni­val Splen­dor) and Chloe Loddo (Car­ni­val Spirit) donned ball­go­wns to plum­met down the Green Light­ning and Green Thun­der wa­ter­slides, re­spec­tively.

Car­ni­val said it would con­tinue to en­cour­age guests on­board its ships to make do­na­tions to­wards the bush­fire ap­peal through­out the up­com­ing weeks.

Ear­lier this week, the cruise line, in part­ner­ship with sis­ter brands P&O Cruises Aus­tralia, Princess Cruises, Cu­nard, and Hol­land Amer­ica Line, pledged $350,000 to the ap­peal (CW 06 Jan).
