For the fifth consecutive year, Carnival Cruise Line participated in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, raising nearly $250,000 for the hospital during the holidays – more than doubling the cruise line’s initial goal.

During St. Jude Thanks and Giving, Carnival guests could donate to St. Jude via their Sail & Sign shipboard accounts. Throughout the year, guests continue to support St. Jude in a variety of Care to Play activities designed to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Carnival Cruise Line is the hospital’s “Official Celebration Partner” and has raised more than $10 million for St. Jude since the start of the partnership in 2010.
