Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: September 8, 2019

08 Sep 2019
Matt Hochberg

Happy weekend! It has been a busy week of Royal Caribbean news and events, and we have a look back at everything that happened this week.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, this week was dominated by the work Royal Caribbean did to help the people of The Bahamas recover as quickly as possible.

Across many of its cruise ships, Royal Caribbean engaged in an ambitious plan to delivery tens of thousands of meals to people across Grand Bahama Island.

Cruise ships in the area made unscheduled stops in Freeport to deliver meals and supplies to aid agencies so that they could be distributed to people in need.
