Ballgowns for bushfires
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).
