Disney Cruise Line Supplying Personal Hygiene Kits for The Bahamas

Published

on

To continue lending a helping hand to people in The Bahamas following the devastation of Hurricane Dorian, Disney Cruise Line employees assembled more than 1,500 Clean the World personal hygiene kits.

The cruise line used the Disney Dream ship to deliver the kits to Nassau, where the company joined forces with Clean the World to distribute the amenities to shelters for hurricane evacuees from Abaco and Grand Bahama.

Over 100 Disney cast members gathered at the cruise line’s office in Celebration, Florida, to build the Clean the World hygiene kits, which were filled with soap, shampoo, razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes and socks.

“Our Disney team cares deeply about the well-being of our friends and neighbors in The Bahamas,” Disney Cruise Line president Jeff Vahle said in a statement. “Our cast members were grateful for the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and come together to pack these much-needed kits and provide support beyond the financial donations. We hope these everyday essentials will make life a little more comfortable for those families living in shelters.”

The Walt Disney Company also committed $1 million to non-profit relief agencies to help hurricane relief and recovery efforts in The Bahamas. In addition, the company also donated food, water, medical supplies, cleaning supplies, generators and construction materials.

Disney Cruise Line has also stepped up for its Bahamian-based crew members who live in impacted areas by providing an additional $500,000 in supplies for the communities and direct aid to employees.

European Waterways Barge Cruises Are Ideal for Family Vacations

Published

European Waterways offers the perfect solution to socially distant family travel in Europe.

As the coronavirus pandemic begins to wane and countries begin to reopen their borders to international travelers, families are expected to look to travel to reconnect with one another, and European Waterways is ready for the surge, offering the ideal opportunity for families to explore on private, chartered river barges.

Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways, says that he is already observing increasing interest.

This isn’t surprising seeing as how these vessels offer ideal accommodations for families, with room for anywhere between six and 20 passengers. Guests can cruise Europe’s canals and smaller waterways as well as the less-populated countryside.

“Cruising with European Waterways has always been about taking ‘the path less traveled,’ so much of our outdoor activities already take our guests away from crowded tourist attractions to the more exclusive, less populated settings,” said Banks. “Until travel returns to normal, we are further committed to providing a safe and healthy onboard environment for our guests, with pre-cruise checks for all on-board and the implementation of more stringent cleaning procedures, among other policies.”

Social distancing will likely be the norm for a while in Europe and around the world, and these barges offer the chance to enjoy scenery while still remaining safe.

For the most part, meals are served on board by the master chef and cruises feature exclusive private tours of castles, aristocratic estates and vineyards, plus other excursions, tailored to avoid the crowds.

L’Art de Vivre is the ideal barge for a family vacation. The eight-passenger vessel once carried supplies during World War One. Now, the boat has been completely modernized and cruises the Canal du Nivernais in Burgundy, France.

Family-friendly excursions include a visit to the Caves of Arcy-sur-Cure, which features some of the oldest cave paintings in the world, a medieval castle under construction using traditional methods at the Chateau Guedelon; the age of the dinosaurs in Cardo Land; and the fun and wildly eclectic artwork on display at the Fabuloserie Art and Sculpture Museum.

Family charters can also incorporate activities such as tennis, ice-skating and mini-golf as well as kayaking, quad biking and horseback riding.

European Waterways’ Family Charters are available throughout France, the U.K., Ireland, Scotland and Italy.
