BREAKING: A Cruise Ship Is Heading to Puerto Rico to Do What Trump Won’t!

Royal Caribbean is using a cruise ship to help evacuate people from Puerto Rico and deliver needed supplies to Caribbean islands.

The cruise line announced that it is canceling its September 30 Adventure of the Seas trip so it can use the ship to help victims of Hurricane Maria.

The 3,800 passenger vessel will bring aid to San Juan—as well as St. Croix and St. Thomas, which were hit by both Maria and Hurricane Irma. Adventure of the Seas will take evacuees to Fort Lauderdale before returning to Puerto Rico next week.

Royal Caribbean is donating water, medical supplies and more to those in need. So far, the company has helped evacuate more than 1,700 people and has promised to match donations of up to $1 million to help with Irma relief.

Other cruise lines are helping as well:

Norwegian Cruise Line is working with the disaster relief group All Hands Volunteers to help rebuild schools and infrastructure in Puerto Rico. It is donating $600,000 toward rebuilding the Florida Keys and the Caribbean, and has promised to match up to $1.25 million in donations from its guests, team members and partners.

Carnival Corporation has pledged up to $10 million in funding and support for Florida and the Caribbean following Irma.

Many people remain stranded inside Puerto Rico’s main airport, with very few flights scheduled this week. Security checks are being done by hand because TSA equipment was damaged in the storm and airlines are having a hard time printing boarding passes.
