The Medical University of South Carolina is partnering with Carnival Cruise lines. Earlier this year, Carnival Cruise lines made Charleston a port of destination for cruise ships to sail out of on a regular basis. Now, MUSC has partnered with the popular cruise line to include a number of monetary donations by the line, as well as some fundraisers and fun for MUSC Children’s Hospital patients.
Carnival is looking for ways to expand its commitment to the Charleston community, and this partnership with MUSC Children’s Hospital is another step in doing just that. MUSC and Carnival’s partnership is for one year.
In May, Carnival’s 2,000-passenger Fantasy ship sailed out of Charleston for the first time, making the port city its home.
