We are all Passengers On This Voyage

The “Friends Uniting Neighbors” (F.U.N.) Team was established by Carnival Foundation in 1997 as a grass-roots organization designed to go a step beyond traditional volunteer service initiatives. The program provides employees opportunities to venture out into the community and offer hands-on help where it is needed most.

Rather than donating money or participating in company-sponsored events, Carnival employees who are members of the F.U.N. Team seek out community-service organizations.

“Throughout my years at Carnival the F.U.N. Team has given me the opportunity to serve meals at homeless shelters, walk dogs at the humane society, pickup and classify debris at a beach cleanup, and even make ice cream sundaes and play catch with great kids at a foster home. This employee-driven volunteer organization is another aspect that makes our company special.” – Gregg Zalkin, Former F.U.N. Team Co-Chair
