Carnival Corporation Named One of America’s Best Large Employers for 2024

World’s largest cruise company honored on Forbes’ annual listing of the top U.S. employers, reinforcing company’s reputation as an excellent employer

MIAMI (Feb. 13, 2024) – Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL; NYSE: CUK), the world’s largest cruise company, today announced it was named as one of America’s Best Large Employers 2024 by Forbes, a leading source of business news worldwide. Carnival Corporation was recognized among the top 600 U.S. employers across 27 major industries and ranked as the top overall cruise company on the list.

Presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, America’s Best Large Employers were determined through an independent survey of over 170,000 U.S. employees from all sectors working for companies employing at least 5,000 people. Respondents were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their employer to family and friends and to rate their willingness to recommend any previous employers of the last two years. Participants were also given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries, or the employers of friends, acquaintances and family members. In order to help differentiate between organizations that consistently perform well from those that may only have had a single good year, the survey was conducted periodically over the course of the previous three years with more than 3.5 million employer evaluations considered. Based on these personal and public evaluations, only the top 600 companies were recognized.

“At Carnival Corporation, we’re privileged to support our incredibly talented and highly diverse team members who lead the way in creating memorable vacations for our guests,” said Bettina Deynes, global chief human resources officer for Carnival Corporation. “Empowering our team members with the time, tools and help to do our best work is a part of our company DNA so we are honored to be recognized by Forbes alongside other companies who share this commitment.”
