If you haven’t heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge, then you must be living under a bucket. The trend sweeping the nation involves plenty of ice water with the intention to raise awareness and funds for those living with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.” Everyday Americans, celebrities, sports teams and even a former president have stepped up to the challenge — an overwhelming list of participants that also includes cruise line executives and crew. To date, the ALS Association has received $41.8 million as a result of the viral challenge — $39.7 million more than the same time period a year ago. Check out some of the participants from your favorite cruise lines below:

Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation

Guy Young, president of Uniworld

Ken Muskat, EVP; Bonnie Levengood, SVP; and crew of MSC Divina
