Item 5. Other Events.

     Holland America Line, a unit of Carnival Corporation, cancelled the
August 1, 2002, 7-day voyage of the ms Ryndam due to a gastrointestinal
virus currently prevalent in Alaska and Canada.  In addition, a generator
malfunction has caused the early termination of the August 4, 2002 7-day
voyage and cancellation of the August 11, 2002 7-day voyage of the ms
Statendam.  As a result, Holland America Line will provide lodging and
travel accommodations, refund cruise fares and offer 25-50% off future
cruise vouchers to the affected guests and will also protect travel agent
commissions.  The termination of these cruises is expected to reduce
Carnival Corporation's third quarter 2002 earnings by up to $0.02 per

     Certain statements in this report constitute "forward-looking
statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation
Reform Act of 1995.  We have tried, wherever possible, to identify such
statements by using words such as "anticipate," "believe," "expect,"
"forecast," "future," "intend," and words and terms of similar substance in
connection with any discussion of future operating or financial
performance.  These forward-looking statements, including those which may
impact the forecasting of our net revenue yields, booking levels, pricing,
occupancy or business prospects, involve known and unknown risks,
uncertainties and other factors, which may cause our actual results,
performances or achievements to be materially different from any future
results, performances or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-
looking statements.

     Such factors include, among others, the following: general economic
and business conditions which may impact levels of disposable income of
consumers and the net revenue yields for our cruise products; consumer
demand for cruises and other vacation options; other vacation industry
competition; effects on consumer demand of armed conflicts, political
instability, terrorism, adverse media publicity and the availability of air
service; shifts in consumer booking patterns; increases in vacation
industry capacity, including cruise capacity; continued availability of
attractive port destinations; changes in tax laws and regulations; changes
and disruptions in financial and equity markets; our financial and
contractual counterparties' ability to perform; our ability to implement
our brand strategy; our ability to implement our shipbuilding program and
to continue to expand worldwide; our ability to attract and retain
shipboard crew; changes in foreign currency and interest rates and
increases in security expenses, food, fuel and insurance prices; delivery
of new ships on schedule and at the contracted prices; weather patterns and
natural disasters; unscheduled ship repairs and drydocking; incidents
involving cruise ships; impact of pending or threatened litigation; our
ability to successfully implement cost improvement plans; the continuing
financial viability and/or consolidation of our travel agent distribution
system; our ability to successfully integrate business acquisitions; and
changes in laws and regulations applicable to us.

     These risks may not be exhaustive.  We operate in a continually
changing business environment, and new risks emerge from time to time.  We
cannot predict such risks nor can we assess the impact, if any, of such
risks on our business or the extent to which any risk, or combination of
risks may cause actual results to differ from those projected in any
forward-looking statements.  Accordingly, forward-looking statements should
not be relied upon as a prediction of actual results.  We undertake no
obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements,
whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
