NCLH raised $2.5 million for hurricane relief

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NCLH), parent of Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, has announced it has met the company’s goal of raising $2.5 million for the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief programme.

“In less than four months, the programme 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,” NCLH said in a statement.

The Hope Starts Here hurricane relief programme launched in late September 2017 when the company partnered with relief organization 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 longstanding relationship with the Caribbean, where its ships have been visiting for more than 50 years, and is focused on providing both immediate and long-term assistance to the region, it said.
