Cruise line plans charity fundraiser

16 October 2009

Those embarking on a Royal Caribbean cruise later this month will be able to help children with life-threatening medical conditions, as a fundraiser is being held on board a new ship.

The cruise line has donated 100 per cent of sales from 1,000 of the Oasis of the Seas staterooms to the Make-A-Wish foundation.

And proceeds for tickets for an event on November 30th, which will include the official naming ceremony, will also be go to the charity.

Oasis of the Seas is departing from Port Everglades Cruise Terminal in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Royal Caribbean explained that it will be the largest cruise ship in the world, spanning 16 decks.

Commenting on the plans, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America president David Williams said: "The generosity of sponsors like Royal Caribbean has greatly enhanced our ability to grant life-affirming, world-class wishes and is critical to the mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation."

Last month, Royal Caribbean announced that Oasis of the Seas is to feature a 1940s-style cupcake shop.
