Carnival Cruise Line has raised more than $22 million for St. Jude kids since joining our mission in 2010.


As the Official Celebration Partner of St. Jude, Carnival helps St. Jude patients Choose Fun by bringing shipboard activities to patients and families at the hospital, who may not be able to cruise because of their treatment. Carnival has a goal to raise $33 million for St. Jude.

Carnival guests, crew and travel partners have shown St. Jude families incredible support over the last few years through Carnival’s Care to Play program. On each Carnival ship, guests have the opportunity to Groove for St. Jude or to purchase specialty items that support the kids.


Carnival puts fun at the center of everything they do, especially for the patients of St. Jude.  Carnival supports the annual St. Jude Teen Formal bringing legendary spin master DJ Irie to keep the party going.  Carnival hosts an annual Day of Play, Dive-in Movies, art parties and more to bring joy to patients during treatment.

In their 10 years of supporting St. Jude, our partners at Carnival Cruise Line has helped ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food.
