Product Range of Capital One - June 13th, 2011

Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE: CCL, LSE: CCL, and NYSE: CUK), is a British-American-Panamanian corporation, and the world's largest cruise ship operator. It is a dual listed company, with headquarters at Carnival Place in the Doral suburb of Miami, Florida, USA and at Carnival House in Southampton, England, UK.[2][3][4] Carnival Corporation and Carnival plc are separate listed companies and have different shareholder bodies, but they jointly own all the operating companies in the group. Carnival Corporation owns the majority stake, however as a condition of the merger between Carnival Corporation and P&O Princess Cruises PLC in 2002, it was agreed that P&O Princess would be relisted as Carnival plc in London, remaining as a separate company with a predominantly British shareholder body and largely retaining the P&O Princess executive team.[5][6] Carnival Corporation and Carnival plc stocks are currently traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: CCL) and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: CUK and NYSE: CCL)
Carnival Corporation & plc is a global cruise company and one of the largest vacation companies in the world. Our portfolio of leading cruise brands includes Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn in North America; P&O Cruises, and Cunard Line in the United Kingdom; AIDA in Germany; Costa Cruises in Southern Europe; Iberocruceros in Spain; and P&O Cruises in Australia.

These brands, which comprise the most recognized cruise brands in North America, the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy, offer a wide range of holiday and vacation products to a customer base that is broadly varied in terms of cultures, languages and leisure-time preferences. We also own a tour company that complements our cruise operations: Holland America Princess Alaska Tours in Alaska and the Canadian Yukon. Combined, our vacation companies attract 8.5 million guests annually.

Carnival Corporation & plc is a global cruise company and one of the largest vacation companies in the world. Our portfolio of leading cruise brands includes Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn in North America; P&O Cruises and Cunard Line in the United Kingdom; AIDA in Germany; Costa Cruises in Southern Europe; Iberocruceros in Spain; and P&O Cruises in Australia.

These brands, which comprise the most recognized cruise brands in North America, the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy, offer a wide range of holiday and vacation products to a customer base that is broadly varied in terms of cultures, languages and leisure-time preferences. We also own a tour company that complements our cruise operations: Holland America Princess Alaska Tours in Alaska and the Canadian Yukon. Combined, our vacation companies attract 8.5 million guests annually.

Carnival's wide-ranging product offerings provide our guests with exceptional vacation experiences at an outstanding value. Our success in providing quality cruise vacations has made Carnival the most profitable company in the leisure travel industry. Carnival’s stock is dually listed on both the New York Stock Exchange and on the London Stock Exchange under symbol CCL. Carnival is the only company in the world to be included in both the S&P 500 index in the United States and the FTSE 100 index in the United Kingdom.

Headquartered in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. and London, England, Carnival operates a fleet of 98 ships, with another 10 ships scheduled for delivery between now and May 2014. With approximately 200,000 guests and 70,000 shipboard employees, there are more than 270,000 people sailing aboard the Carnival fleet at any given time.

We are committed to governance policies and practices that ensure shareholder and other stakeholder interests are represented in a thoughtful and independent manner. Sound principles of corporate governance are critical to obtaining and retaining the trust of investors. They are also vital in securing respect from other key stakeholders and interested parties -- including employees, our guests, suppliers, the communities in which we conduct business, government officials and the public at large.

Carnival Corporation and Carnival plc operate under a dual listed company structure with primary stock listings in the United States and the United Kingdom. Accordingly, we have implemented a single corporate governance framework consistent, to the extent possible, with the governance practices and requirements of both countries. While there are customs or practices that differ between the two countries, we believe our corporate governance framework effectively addresses the corporate governance requirements of both the United States and the United Kingdom.

Our corporate governance principles are set forth in our Corporate Governance Guidelines and the charters of our Board committees. The actions described in these documents -- which the Boards have reviewed and approved -- implement requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation, the New York Stock Exchange listing requirements and, to the extent practicable, the Combined Code on Corporate Governance appended to the United Kingdom Listing Authority’s listing rules, as well our own vision of good governance.

We will continue to monitor governance developments in the United States and the United Kingdom to ensure a vigorous and effective corporate governance framework of the highest international standards.

We at Carnival Corporation & plc believe that sustainability is about preserving our environment, respecting our employees and communities, and returning value to our shareholders. Sustainability is not a cost of doing business; it is a way of doing business. As one of the largest vacation companies in the world, Carnival has been committed since our inception to operating responsibly.

We recognize that our success is tied to protecting the environment, safeguarding and developing our workforce, strengthening stakeholder relationships, enhancing the port communities that we visit and maintaining our fiscal strength. We also recognize that, in today’s business climate, the viability of our business as well as our reputation depends on being more sustainable and transparent.

We are proud to have been recognized for our efforts by socially responsible investment rating agencies and to be named to the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index, the FTSE4Good Index and the Maplecroft Climate Innovation Index.

We know that the journey ahead will contain many challenges and opportunities for stronger stewardship, and recognize that our future success and delivery on our sustainability plans and goals are inextricably linked. As an industry leader, we are committed to and accountable for growing and operating wisely.

The Sustainability Reports published by our Operating Lines in 2010, which reflect Fiscal Year 2009 performance, culminate our sustainability “keel-laying” of five years earlier, when Carnival wholeheartedly embraced our role in maintaining the oceans, vistas and pristine islands to which we owe our livelihood. As we progress on our sustainability voyage, we have also summarized the reports published to date, along with our views on the sustainability subjects that are of high interest to our stakeholders. Click here to view these Sustainability Reports and the 2009 Corporate Sustainability Summary.

In 2005, we began a corporate-wide Environmental Management System (EMS) initiative. This comprehensive, planned approach to improving our environmental performance resulted, in 2006, in certification of all of our Operating Lines and ships in accordance with the ISO14001 standard. Each Line’s EMS outlines our commitment to compliance with applicable environmental legislation and regulations, and lays the groundwork for addressing the immediate and long-term environmental impacts of our cruises on the ocean, the air, and the natural habitat of our destinations.

In late 2006, our Corporate Environmental Compliance Department was expanded to become the Maritime Policy & Compliance Department, reflecting the Corporation’s need to uniformly coordinate and share Health, Environmental, Safety and Security (HESS) standards and best practices across the organization. With this change, we redefined responsibility and accountability for HESS performance at the highest levels of the company, streamlining how we develop policies and standards, and assuring that we meet, if not exceed, all relevant regulatory requirements.

In 2008, we expanded our commitment to transparency by deciding to publicly disclose the environmental, social and governance performance of each of our lines, using the internationally recognized Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework, to augment the annual Environmental Management reporting effort that we began in 2005.

Publication of our 2009 Sustainability Reports has enabled us to benchmark our collective performance and to identify opportunities for improvement moving forward. This reporting process has already proven to be of value to our business, as it allowed us to:
Share best practices and lessons learned among ships and operating companies;
Identify and address opportunities for improvement;
Develop mechanisms for closing gaps in accountability and data availability;
Set the record straight on how we manage the environmental and other sustainability impacts of our operations.
These reports also help us to focus energy on our sustainability direction for each Operating Line as well as for the Corporation, so that we can continue to build upon the multi-year momentum of our sustainability activities.

With the information disclosed in our reports, we are now better positioned to tackle our sustainability challenges and advance as a global company. We thank you for your interest in Carnival Corporation & plc, and look forward to periodically updating you on our sustainability progress.
