Oceania Cruises launches Caribbean relief initiative

Oceania Cruises

Oceania Cruises launched a new initiative to aid humanitarian relief to hurricane stricken islands in the region as well as raise awareness and restore tourism, a vital economic lifeline for the islands.

To assist in these fund raising efforts for humanitarian aid and to help restore and maintain a vibrant tourism environment, Oceania Cruises will make a donation of £350 per veranda stateroom and above for new bookings on Caribbean voyages sailing from December 2017 to April 2018.

Partnering with All Hands Volunteers under the Hope Starts Here programme, Oceania Cruises and its sister brands have pledged to raise at least $2.5 million dollars for relief efforts with the company committed to $1.25 million dollars in matching donations from valued guests, team members, suppliers, and travel partners to ensure that our efforts to assist these islands in their time of need makes an even greater positive impact.

“This rebuilding and restoration process is very personal to us as we have such strong ties to the region. We have friends, family, and decades-long business partnerships in these islands and it is critical that we help them rebuild and restore,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.

All Hands Volunteers (hands.org), is a non-profit relief organisation dedicated to rebuilding communities impacted by natural disasters with proven experience reconstructing schools and critical infrastructure to help assist in the rebuilding of these vibrant and beautiful communities. All Hands will be focused on rebuilding schools on impacted islands.

“Schools don’t just provide classrooms and instruction; they are vital community centres that also provide children with safety, shelter and an all-important sense of community. It is imperative that children can get back to school as quickly as possible,” added Binder.
