May I propose actions for consideration at next year’s Annual Meetings?



Carnival Corporation shareholders and Carnival plc shareholders (to the extent permitted under Carnival Corporation’s and Carnival plc’s governing documents and U.S. and UK law, as applicable) may submit proposals for consideration at future shareholder meetings.

In order for shareholder proposals to be considered for inclusion in our Proxy Statement in accordance with SEC Rule 14a-8 for next year’s Annual Meetings, the written proposals must be received by our Secretary no later than the close of business November 8, 2019. Such proposals will need to comply with applicable SEC regulations regarding the inclusion of shareholder proposals in proxy materials.

Carnival Corporation’s By-laws establish advance notice procedures with regard to shareholder proposals that are not submitted for inclusion in the Proxy Statement, but that shareholders instead wish to present directly at an Annual Meeting. To be properly brought before the Annual Meeting, a notice of the proposal must be submitted to our Secretary at our headquarters no later than six weeks prior to the Annual Meetings of Shareholders or, if later, the time at which the notice of such meeting is publicly disclosed. For shareholders of Carnival plc, the same requirements apply under UK law requirements to submit a notice of a proposal.



May I nominate individuals to serve as Directors?



In order to submit a nominee for election at the Annual Meetings you must provide the information required for Director nominations set forth in Carnival Corporation’s and Carnival plc’s governing documents in a timely manner. Specifically, under the governing documents, you must submit your notice of nomination in writing to the attention of our Secretary at our headquarters not later than seven days nor earlier than 42 days prior to the 2020 Annual Meetings.

Any such notice must include, in addition to any other requirements specifically set forth in Carnival Corporation’s and Carnival plc’s governing documents:
