Donating to help the victims of natural disaster
As our customers have a continuous presence in Australia, the devastating fires destroying the natural habitat of local wildlife and causing human stress and damages, we wanted to follow the example of our customer Carnival Australia who donated a fair amount to salvage work via Australian Red Cross - because our customers' customers and the preservation of nature where the ships of our customers sail, do matter to us too.
