Shaquille O'Neal, Carnival's CFO -- or Chief Fun Officer -- joined former Miami Heat stars Alonzo Mourning, Shane Battier and Glen Rice at a ceremony last week to welcome the line's new Carnival Horizon to Miami. The event included the unveiling of a giant "Choose Fun" bumper sticker on the stern of the 3,960-passenger vessel and the presentation of a $25,000 check to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, a longtime Carnival charity partner.

The Carnival Horizon debuted earlier this year and has been sailing itineraries from New York. From its new home at Port Miami, it will alternate Caribbean voyages of six nights (to Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel) and eight nights (to Grand Turk, La Romana, Curacao and Aruba and to Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Kitts and St. Maarten). Among notable onboard features are Carnival's first Dr. Seuss-themed water park, an IMAX theater and a suspended ropes course.

Celebrity recently completed a makeover of its first Galapagos Islands ship, the 100-guest Celebrity Xpedition. It now sports redecorated staterooms, restaurants and lounges and faster, more reliable Wi-Fi.

In addition to the Xpedition, Celebrity's Galapagos fleet includes the 48-passenger Celebrity Xperience, the 16-passenger Celebrity Xploration and the upcoming 100-guest Celebrity Flora, launching next May. All sail year-round to these remote islands about 600 miles west of Ecuador. Onboard naturalists introduce passengers to the archipelago's unique wildlife, like giant Galapagos tortoises, marine iguanas, lava lizards and flightless cormorants.

Celebrity has discounted its Galapagos adventures by up to 79% for our customers -- click here for dates and rates.

Last week, I announced that Vacations To Go would donate $100,000 to relief and recovery efforts underway in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. After a week of research, we chose to divide our donation equally between two charitable organizations from among the dozens of worthy options. Both charities are rated four stars out of four by Charity Navigator and both score extremely high in all three areas that the organization measures: financial, accounting and transparency.

The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina for more than 35 years. This Food Bank serves a network of more than 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters and its service area includes all of the hardest hit counties, cities and towns in North Carolina, including New Bern and Wilmington.

Samaritan's Purse is a North Carolina-based charity with global reach that already has hundreds of volunteers working out of three relief centers in New Bern, Wilmington and Jacksonville, NC. Volunteers are helping in the critical and dirty job of removing mud and wet flooring, furniture and drywall from flooded homes to discourage the growth of dangerous mold. In addition, they are tarping roofs until they can be repaired and removing downed trees and other debris from yards and streets so that residents can return to their homes.

The 800 employees of Vacations To Go send our hearts and prayers to those who have lost loved ones, homes and businesses, and we send our thanks and appreciation to the thousands of selfless volunteers pitching in on the front lines.
