Carnival’s “Merry Grinchmas” Celebrations Bring Holiday Cheer to Hospitalized Kids

Cruise News – Dec. 14, 2015

Carnival Cruise Line, in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, brought some holiday cheer to kids at the Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital in Charleston on December 10, and The Ronald McDonald House in Baltimore on December 13, hosting fun-filled “Merry Grinchmas” celebrations.

The events included readings of the classic Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas, a visit from The Grinch, and Dr. Seuss–themed gift bags for each child. In addition, entertainment and youth staff from the Charleston-based Carnival Fantasy and Baltimore-based Carnival Pride re-created the line’s popular holiday show for the children. During the festivities, Carnival also presented each facility with a $10,000 donation.

“The opportunity to meet the Dr. Seuss characters and watch the cruise line performers created fun-filled positive memories for our patients in what can be a stressful environment,” said Betsy McMillian, child life manager at MUSC Children’s Hospital. “Additionally, their generous donation will help make our new MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and Women’s Pavilion a reality.”

Added Sandy Pagnotti, president of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore, “The Carnival entertainment team not only spread smiles and holiday cheer to the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore, but delivered a very generous and much appreciated gift that will go toward providing care to those who use our services in the coming year.”

The Grinch is entertaining guests throughout the Carnival fleet in December as part of the line’s exclusive Seuss at Sea program in partnership. The line hosts other community-based Seuss-inspired events throughout the year.
