TAMPA, Fla. — Royal Caribbean is taking a ship full of supplies to areas in the Bahamas impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
The cruise line said Thursday it’s bringing over 43,000 bottles of water, 10,000 meals, generators and other supplies to the island.
Royal Caribbean’s chief meteorologist James Van Fleet tweeted photos of the thousands of meals being delivered to Grand Bahama, saying cooks and crew members were up all night Wednesday prepping chicken, rice and fresh fruit.
Van Fleet added that they would be prepping more meals Thursday night, too.
