Latifah rocked the house with the Weather Girls classic “It’s Raining Men”, while Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl champion Jake Elliott had a chance to live out his rock star fantasies performing Whitesnake’s arena anthem “Here I Go Again”.

St Jude received a $100,000 donation from Carnival representing monies raised from various fundraisers, both onboard and ashore. The funds continue the line’s ongoing support of St Jude with more than $16mi raised in the fight against childhood cancer since the partnership began in 2010.

Latifahd said: “My time aboard Carnival Horizon was nothing short of incredible.  In addition to having the honour of serving as the ship’s godmother, meeting the amazing kids from St Jude and their families and squaring off against Jake in an all-out Lip Sync Battle is certainly something I will always cherish.”
