Diversity is one area where Carnival Corporation has been putting more importance in the last years. A significant area of importance for a company that operates globally with brands such as Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, and Seabourn in the U.S., along with AIDA Cruises, Cunard, Costa Cruises, P&O Cruises UK, and P&O Cruises Australia.

“At Carnival Corporation,  diversity of thinking is a business imperative and we fully embrace the importance of fostering a diverse workforce at all levels, driving innovation and an inclusive and supportive work environment for all of our colleagues,” said Roger Frizzell, chief communications officer for Carnival Corporation. 

“We are honored to again be recognized by Forbes as a top employer for diversity in the U.S., as it underscores our highest responsibility and top priority, which is compliance, environmental protection and the health, safety and well-being of our guests, the people in the communities we visit, and our shipboard and shoreside personnel.”
