Here is how you can help the family of deceased Harmony of the Seas crewman

Sep 15, 2016


Many of you have emailed me after yesterday’s note about the loss of our colleague Ariel Leyson and asked what you could do to help.

The company will make sure that Ariel’s wife and three children in the Philippines are cared for after their tragic loss. I know you all understand that - and i also understand that your own personal compassion goes above and beyond. So if you wish to do more, here’s how.

Shipboard employees can reach out to their onboard HR manager about making contributions to support Ariels family through a special account we opened.

Shoreside employees and others can donate by personal check to our Crew Relief Fund, which is administrated by the non-profit Miami Foundation. Check should be made payable to RCL Employee Relief Fund, please note "Ariel’s Family" on the memo line. Send them to:

Corporate responsibility Department

Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd

1050 Caribbean Way, First Floor

Miami, FL 33132 USA

In all cases, we will make sure all proceeds go to the Leyson family directly. For questions, please contact Corporate Responsibility at 305.539.6148.

Thank you all for your support. It’s what makes Royal family a real family.
