In its short history, Celebration Cruise Line has supported many wonderful causes and organizations including Abi's Place, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Boys & Girls Club of America. The organization that we have touched and have been touched by on the most personal level is Children Battling Cancer, CBC.
There is nothing more difficult for a family than to have a child suffer with a serious disease. The child must deal with the pain, miss out out on many childhood experiences and often feel different than their peers. The strain on the family is tremendous.
Celebration has teamed with CBC to provide families with young cancer patients the opportunity to get away and just have fun. These much needed cruise vacations are provided at no cost to families, as we want them to think about nothing else but enjoying themselves while on the cruise.
While there nothing as heartbreaking as seeing a sick child, there is nothing more heart-warming than seeing a child's joy. Celebration's ship staff feels rewarded every time they see smiles on a CBC child or family member.
