As part of our Celebrity Cruises Cares program - which is the commitment to our guests, our employees, our communities and our environment - the cornerstone of the commitment to our guests is the focus on building a greater awareness of breast cancer and creating hope of the future for those affected by it directly or indirectly.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®
In our goal to make a difference, we're glad to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) in their efforts to fund life-saving research. With an efficient, genuine, and global focus, BCRF's mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness. BCRF's approach to achieving its goals is inspiring, and we’re proud to support the cause. Together, we're working to further BCRF's success in changing the lives of so many people - and changing the world. As a result of Celebrity's employees and guests successfully fundraising over $250,000 in 2013, the "Celebrity Cruises Award" will be named to fund significant research.

Ship Godmothers Since the launch of Celebrity Solstice® in 2008, our newest ships' godmothers have each been affected by breast cancer – real women who have accomplished great things and who have not let the disease define them. This is one reason we choose these inspirational women as the godmothers of our award-winning Solstice® Class ships. In honor of Celebrity Silhouette® Godmother Michelle Morgan, we recognize her courage, leadership, and warmth that inspired many. She will always remain in our hearts.
