Carnival Corporation

Written By: Ehsan Jahandarpour

Carnival Corporation & plc (“Carnival”) is a British-American registered multinational cruise company, and the world’s largest cruise ship operator. Carnival is a dual listed company, with headquarters at Carnival Place in the Miami suburb of Doral, Florida, United States along with a sales office Carnival House in Southampton, Hampshire, England. The constituent corporation and plc are separate listed companies and have different shareholders, but they jointly own all the operating companies in the group. Carnival Corporation owns the majority stake; however as part of Carnival Corps acquisition of P&O Princess Cruises in 2002 it was agreed that P&O Princess would be relisted as Carnival plc in London, remaining a separate company with a predominantly British shareholder body and largely retaining the P&O Princess executive team.
