The storm, which struck the island nation as a historic Category 5 hurricane, obliterated homes and structures mostly on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands.
“Small in stature but big in heart. Tiny cruisers on #CelebrityEquinox making cards for the Bahamians affected by Dorian,” the social posts said.
The cards, along with 10,000 prepared meals, were taken to people in Freeport, the main city on Grand Bahama Island.
At least 30 people were killed in the destruction Hurricane Dorian wrought on the Bahamas. Officials said the number will rise significantly in the coming days as thousands of people remain missing.
