Hurricane Earl took quite a toll on Belize, and Norwegian Cruise Line heard their cry for help.
The cruise line responded to the country’s plea for assistance and donated BZ$100,000 to help the Belize Red Cross in their relief efforts a few weeks ago.
Senior VP of Destination & Strategic Planning for Norwegian, Colin Murphy, flew down to present the Belize Red Cross with the donation. Belize Red Cross director said “Thank you to Norwegian Cruise Line for their generous donation to the people of Belize in this time of hardship after Hurricane Earl’s visit. This…will allow the Belize Red Cross to assist at least 170 more families, to address what they perceive to be their highest priority need, with dignity.”
Norwegian Cruise Line is currently in the process of developing a brand new port in southern Belize, called Harvest Caye which is set to open in November. The 75-acre oasis will include a swim-up bar, 7-acre beach, saltwater lagoon for water sports, and shore excursions including zip-lining and snorkeling, along with shopping and multiple bars and restaurants.
