Carnival Corporation Reaffirms Shareholder Benefits

Shareholder BenefitsCarnival Corporation announced yesterday that shareholder benefits would be extended for another year. The announcement was contained in the just released 2012 Annual Report from the cruise industry giant – which celebrated its 25th Anniversary of its initial public offering (IPO) in 1987. 

Carnival Corporation, owner of Carnival Cruise Lines and several other major brands such as Cunard, Princess, Holland America, Costa, and Seabourn, is the world’s largest cruise line company. The extension of shareholder benefits means that shareholders will continue to receive up to $250 in onboard credits when they take cruises on any of the company’s brands.

Despite the setbacks from the Costa Concordia in early 2012 and the recent incident with the Carnival Triumph, the report was upbeat and optimistic. The company expects to lead the growth in new cruise passengers with an expanded fleet of nine new cruise ships to be delivered through March of 2016.
