         MIAMI(4/4/95)--Carnival Corporation (NYSE:CCL) announced today that
Micky Arison, its Chairman and CEO, had successfully undergone an angioplasty
that cleared a partially blocked artery to his heart.  On Sunday, while on a
business trip in London, England, Mr. Arison had suffered severe heart
discomfort and was hospitalized.  The company has been informed by Mr. Arison's
doctors that they found no evidence that he suffered any damage to his heart.

         Mr. Arison is resting comfortably in the hospital and after a short
period is expected to return to normal activity.  Mr.  Arison and the company's
Vice Chairman, Howard Frank, were in London as part of a roadshow in connection
with a secondary offering of 13.8 million shares of Class A common stock of
Carnival owned by various Arison family trusts.  The company indicated that it
expects to re-schedule the balance of the roadshow in the very near future.
Mr. Frank said that, "Micky is fine and looks forward to returning to work as
soon as possible."  The company's annual shareholders meeting scheduled for
April 17, 1995 in Miami, Florida will be held as planned.
