Cruise4Haiti is a great opportunity for the cruise & travel community to come together to remind people of the dire need in Haiti, raise awareness of the great work being done by For Haiti with Love and Airline Ambassadors, and to raise money to support these organizations. The C4H mission is to fill a Royal Carribbean cruise with as many people as possible who want to use their cruise vacation to give back a little to the Haiti relief effort.
