Hospital, Carnival Cruises forming partnership

Dec 6, 2010 4:08:00 AM - thestate.com
The Medical University of South Carolina Children's Hospital is forming a partnership with Carnival Cruise lines, which sails regularly from Charleston.

Hospital and Carnival officials gather Monday to make the announcement.

The partnership will include a number of in-kind and monetary donations by the line as well as fundraisers.

Last May the 2,056-passenger Carnival Fantasy arrived in Charleston, becoming the first cruise liner to be based permanently on South Carolina's coast.

Cruises this year will mean an estimated $37 million to the economy in South Carolina where tourism is an $18 billion business.
