Today, Princess Cruises announced their 2nd charity cruise — Cruising for a Cause: Princess Has Heart.
Following a positive response to their last charity cruise, the line has scheduled a 5-day Western Caribbean cruise departing February 10, 2014 from Ft. Lauderdale.
This cruise is a fundraiser for the American Heart Association, helping to fund it’s work to promote healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. (Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and women in the United States, with one in every three deaths attributable to heart disease and stroke.)
For those of you who book this sailing, a tax-deductible portion of your cruise fare, ranging from $100 to $300* per person depending on stateroom category, will be donated on your behalf to the American Heart Association.
Princess Cruises will match every dollar of these donations, up to $500,000, and will provide you with a written acknowledgment of your charitable contribution.
What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than supporting a cause that cares for the heart?
