QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Questions Specific to Shareholders of Carnival plc

 

 

Q:

How are votes counted?

 

A:

You may vote “FOR,” “AGAINST” or “ABSTAIN” for each of the proposals. If you “ABSTAIN,” it has no effect on the outcome of the votes, although abstentions will be counted for the purposes of determining if a quorum is present for joint electorate actions. If you submit a proxy with no further instructions, your shares will be voted in accordance with the recommendations of the Boards of Directors.

 

Q:

What happens if additional proposals are presented at the Annual Meeting?

 

A:

Other than the proposals described in this Proxy Statement, Carnival Corporation does not expect any matters to be presented for a vote at the 2019 Annual Meeting. If you grant a proxy, the persons named as proxy holders, Micky Arison, Carnival Corporation’s Chairman of the Board, and Arnaldo Perez, Carnival Corporation’s General Counsel and Secretary, will have the discretion to vote your shares on any additional matters properly presented for a vote at the meeting. If for any unforeseen reason any of our nominees is unable to accept nomination or election (which is not anticipated), the persons named as proxy holders will vote your proxy for such other candidate or candidates as may be nominated by the Boards of Directors.

 

Q:

Who will count the vote?

 

A:

Broadridge Financial Solutions will tabulate the votes and a representative of Computershare Investor Services will act as the inspector of elections.
