Election or Re-Election of Directors


2019 Nominees for Election or Re-Election to the Boards

The DLC arrangement requires the Boards of Carnival Corporation and Carnival plc to be identical. Shareholders are required to approve the election or re-election of Directors to each Board. There are 12 nominees for election or re-election to each Board of Directors. Each nominee currently serves as a Director of both companies. All nominees for Director are to be elected or re-elected to serve until the next Annual Meeting and until their successors are elected.

All of the nominees have indicated that they will be willing and able to serve as directors.

With respect to each Board nominee set forth below, the information presented includes such person’s age, the year in which such person first became a Director, any other position held with Carnival Corporation and Carnival plc, such person’s principal occupations during at least the past five years, any directorships held by such nominee in public or certain other companies over the past five years and the nominee’s qualifications, including particular areas of expertise, to serve as a Director.

The Nominating & Governance Committees conducted performance evaluations on the members of our Boards of Directors serving during fiscal 2018 and reported the results to the Boards. The Boards determined that each nominee was an effective and committed member of the Boards and the Board Committees on which each serves. In addition, in 2016, the Nominating & Governance Committees engaged a third-party governance expert to perform an assessment of the effectiveness of the Boards. The third-party governance expert interviewed each Director and members of senior management who interact substantially with the Boards, reviewed the results of the assessment with the Senior Independent Director, and then organized and summarized the assessment for discussion with the full Boards.

Accordingly, the Boards of Directors unanimously recommend a vote FOR the election or re-election of each of the following Director nominees:
