Company matches $1.25 million in donations to benefit rebuilding efforts in affected Caribbean communities
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., operater of Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, today announced it has met the company’s goal of raising $2.5 million for the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief program. In less than four months, the program has received more than $1.25 million in donations from the company’s valued team members, loyal guests, travel partners and business partners, which the company has matched in order to assist All Hands and Hearts – Smart Response, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on natural disaster relief, in rebuilding safe, resilient schools on five Caribbean islands.
The Hope Starts Here hurricane relief program launched in late September 2017 when the company partnered with All Hands and Hearts to help provide immediate relief in Key West and reconstruct schools and critical infrastructure in affected islands in the Caribbean including Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Tortola. Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has a 50 year relationship with the Caribbean and is focused on providing both immediate and long-term assistance to the region.
