Cautionary Note Concerning Factors That May Affect Future Results 
 
Carnival Corporation and Carnival plc and their respective subsidiaries are 
referred to collectively in this press release as "Carnival Corporation & plc," 
"our," "us" and "we." Some of the statements, estimates or projections 
contained in this document are "forward-looking statements" that involve risks, 
uncertainties and assumptions with respect to us, including some statements 
concerning the financing transactions described herein, future results, 
operations, outlooks, plans, goals, reputation, cash flows, liquidity and other 
events which have not yet occurred. These statements are intended to qualify 
for the safe harbors from liability provided by Section 27A of the Securities 
Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. All 
statements other than statements of historical facts are statements that could 
be deemed forward-looking. These statements are based on current expectations, 
estimates, forecasts and projections about our business and the industry in 
which we operate and the beliefs and assumptions of our management. We have 
tried, whenever possible, to identify these statements by using words like 
"will," "may," "could," "should," "would," "believe," "depends," "expect," 
"goal," "anticipate," "forecast," "project," "future," "intend," "plan," 
"estimate," "target," "indicate," "outlook," and similar expressions of future 
intent or the negative of such terms. 
 
Forward-looking statements include those statements that relate to our outlook 
and financial position including, but not limited to, statements regarding: 
 
  * Pricing 
  * Booking levels 
  * Occupancy 
  * Interest, tax and fuel expenses 
  * Currency exchange rates 
  * Net cruise costs, excluding fuel per available lower berth day 
  * Estimates of ship depreciable lives and residual values 
  * Goodwill, ship and trademark fair values 
  * Liquidity and credit ratings 
  * Adjusted earnings per share 
  * The impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus global pandemic on our financial 
    condition and results of operations 
 
Because forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are 
many factors that could cause our actual results, performance or achievements 
to differ materially from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking 
statements. This note contains important cautionary statements of the known 
factors that we consider could materially affect the accuracy of our 
forward-looking statements and adversely affect our business, results of 
operations and financial position. Additionally, many of these risks and 
uncertainties are currently amplified by and will continue to be amplified by, 
or in the future may be amplified by, the COVID-19 outbreak. It is not possible 
to predict or identify all such risks. There may be additional risks that we 
consider immaterial or which are unknown.  These factors include, but are not 
limited to, the following: 
 
  * COVID-19 has had, and is expected to continue to have, a significant impact 
    on our financial condition and operations, which impacts our ability to 
    obtain acceptable financing to fund resulting reductions in cash from 
    operations. The current, and uncertain future, impact of the COVID-19 
    outbreak, including its effect on the ability or desire of people to travel 
    (including on cruises), is expected to continue to impact our results, 
    operations, outlooks, plans, goals, reputation, litigation, cash flows, 
    liquidity, and stock price; 
  * As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, we may be out of compliance with a 
    maintenance covenant in certain of our debt facilities, for which we have 
    waivers for the period through November 30, 2021 with the next testing date 
    of February 28, 2022; 
  * World events impacting the ability or desire of people to travel may lead 
    to a decline in demand for cruises; 
  * Incidents concerning our ships, guests or the cruise vacation industry as 
    well as adverse weather conditions and other natural disasters may impact 
    the satisfaction of our guests and crew and lead to reputational damage; 
  * Changes in and non-compliance with laws and regulations under which we 
    operate, such as those relating to health, environment, safety and 
    security, data privacy and protection, anti-corruption, economic sanctions, 
    trade protection and tax may lead to litigation, enforcement actions, 
    fines, penalties and reputational damage; 
  * Breaches in data security and lapses in data privacy as well as disruptions 
    and other damages to our principal offices, information technology 
    operations and system networks, including the recent ransomware incident, 
    and failure to keep pace with developments in technology may adversely 
    impact our business operations, the satisfaction of our guests and crew and 
    lead to reputational damage; 
  * Ability to recruit, develop and retain qualified shipboard personnel who 
    live away from home for extended periods of time may adversely impact our 
    business operations, guest services and satisfaction; 
  * Increases in fuel prices, changes in the types of fuel consumed and 
    availability of fuel supply may adversely impact our scheduled itineraries 
    and costs; 
  * Fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates may adversely impact our 
    financial results; 
  * Overcapacity and competition in the cruise and land-based vacation industry 
    may lead to a decline in our cruise sales, pricing and destination options; 
  * Geographic regions in which we try to expand our business may be slow to 
    develop or ultimately not develop how we expect; and 
  * Inability to implement our shipbuilding programs and ship repairs, 
    maintenance and refurbishments may adversely impact our business operations 
    and the satisfaction of our guests. 
 
The ordering of the risk factors set forth above is not intended to reflect our 
indication of priority or likelihood. 
 
Forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as a prediction of actual 
results. Subject to any continuing obligations under applicable law or any 
relevant stock exchange rules, we expressly disclaim any obligation to 
disseminate, after the date of this document, any updates or revisions to any 
such forward-looking statements to reflect any change in expectations or 
events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statements are based.
