    This is asking for cruise lines to send ships. By the time they have compensated passengers for cancelled cruises and dealt with associated complaints they would be better sending money. I think they certainly should send money and lots of it, but not ships. Cruise passengers could also contribute according to their means.
    The FB appeal that I gave to was the American Red Cross.

      Sorry, I was obviously seeing a different Facebook appeal. The Red Cross is able to deliver disaster relief effectively because of their wide range of experience. Modular housing will also be invaluable.

        We had a sheet delivered to our stateroom last night explaining what RCI were doing to help the disaster and asking for a donation ranging from 25 dollars up to a hundred.

          Not the most tax efficient method of making a charitable donation I would have thought.

            What about the companies that take the money off the cruise passengers?

                So the question has to be asked are RCI going to use donations by guests to offset the corporate donation of $1 million??

                The most efficient way for a UK tax paying cruiser to donate is to use a UK charity.
