St. Jude

The kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® are some of the bravest, coolest kids anywhere. Carnival guests, crew and travel partners: give yourselves a hand, because you ’ve shown the kids some incredible support over the last few years through our Care to Play program.

Through our shared efforts, we’ve now raised more than $18 million to help St. Jude fight childhood cancer. Hand-in-hand, we’ve passed milestone after milestone, setting our sights on ever-larger goals. Now we ’re embarking on our most ambitious goal so far: raise another $15 million in the next five years… for a total of $33 million.

And we’re ready!

We put up big numbers, but we still keep focused on what matters most — and it ’s the kids. We’re so devoted to putting fun at the center of everything we do that we ’ve been named the Official Celebration Partner for St. Jude.

That ’s why we ’re supporting birthdays at the hospital… when a patient celebrates their special day, Carnival brings the cake! Every year you can find us hosting Day of Play at St. Jude, a fun-filled event for patients and their families. We also support the annual St. Jude Teen Formal, where legendary spin master DJ IRIE gets the party moving… and keeps everyone grooving. Plus, our next ship — Mardi Gras — will even feature a custom sculpture and three paintings designed by St. Jude patients! There are plenty of opportunities for you to help St. Jude when you cruise with Carnival… or anytime, including right now Indicates external site which may or may not meet accessibility guidelines.
