Other ways to support St. Jude
As the Official Celebration Partner of St. Jude, Carnival is devoted to putting the fun at the center of everything they do — and what better way to express the fun and creativity of St. Jude patients than through their patient art, reminding guests that when they help St. Jude, they are helping kids be kids.
As a proud partner, Carnival's gift to St. Jude families is the gift of quality time, artistic expression and helping to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
Carnival Cruise Line unveiled its newest ship, Carnival Celebration, in Miami in 2022. The new ship features a sculpture of a multi-colored fish inspired by an original piece of art created by St. Jude patient Bridget.
This is the second Carnival ship to feature a statue based on patient art and brought to life by artist Tylur French. French’s latest installment is an interpretation of a painted fish created by 11-year-old Bridget, who was treated at St. Jude for bone cancer. Thanks to the lifesaving treatments developed at St. Jude, Bridget rides horses, plays basketball, and swims. Bridget was among those present at the ship’s unveiling and had the chance to see the statue her art inspired.
