- Carnival Corporation has reported FY 2017 US GAAP net income of $2.6bn, or $3.59 diluted EPS, compared to $2.8bn, or $3.72 diluted EPS for the prior year. FY 2017 adjusted net income was $2.8bn, or $3.82 EPS, higher than adjusted net income of $2.6bn, or $3.45 EPS for the prior year. The Company said adjusted net income excluded unrealized gains on fuel derivatives and other net charges of $224m and previously reported ships, trademark, and goodwill impairments of $387m for FY 2017, and unrealized gains on fuel derivatives of $236m and other net charges of $37m for FY 2016. Fourth quarter net revenue yields, in constant currency, increased 4.2% compared to prior year, due to better than September guidance of up 1.5 to 2.5% 4Q net cruise costs excluding fuel per available lower berth day (ALBD) in constant currency increased 6.1% compared to prior year, in line with September guidance of up 6.0 to 7.0%. 4Q U.S. GAAP net income was $546m, or $0.76 diluted EPS, compared to $609m, or $0.83 diluted EPS for the prior year. 4Q adjusted net income of $452m, or $0.63 EPS, compared to net income of $491m, or $0.67 EPS for the prior year (adjusted net income excludes unrealized gains and losses on fuel derivatives and other net charges totaling $94m in net gains for 4Q 2017 and $118m of net gains for 4Q 2016). Voyage disruptions due to hurricanes reduced fourth quarter earnings by approximately $0.11 per share. President and Chief Executive Officer Arnold Donald commenting on these results: "We exceeded the high end of our original full year 2017 guidance by $0.22 per share, achieving record cash from operations of $5.3 billion and another adjusted earnings per share record despite a significant drag from fuel and currency. Our full year performance was led by over 4.5 percent growth in ticket prices while overcoming a variety of headwinds, affirming that our core strategy, which is anchored in delivering exceptional guest experiences, driving demand through marketing programs to increase cruise consideration, and introducing new more efficient ships through measured capacity growth all while leveraging our scale, can deliver consistent earnings improvements. "Despite booking disruptions from this years multiple hurricanes, we are still heading into 2018 with a stronger base of business and higher prices than last year. We have numerous efforts underway to keep the momentum going in 2018 and beyond, from our innovative approaches to increase consideration for cruising, including our recently announced partnership with Univision, to the further roll-out of our state-of-the-art revenue management system. In 2018 we also look forward to the delivery of four new cutting-edge ships, Carnival Horizon, Seabourn Ovation, AIDAnova, and Nieuw Statendam to further our strategic fleet enhancement program." "We remain on track to achieve double digit return on invested capital in 2018. We are committed to the continued distribution of cash to shareholders through increasing dividends, currently totaling $1.3 billion annually, and ongoing share repurchases, which have exceeded $3 billion since late 2015."

Agree with you, Optimist, the maritime network has usually been switched off as the ships I've been on has sailed into port. Our last cruise was in September which was after the new rules came into force and didn't have any issues. However, Pierre, as a matter of routine, it's best to check the network displayed on your mobile before you use it.

Pierre Vodafone are aware of this problem, they advised me today that they will no longer offer data services on maritime networks from 4th Feb 18. It might be worth youur while having a go at your provider. I haven't cruised for a few months, but every one that I've been on, the maritime network is allways switched off if in sight of a port. I still switch mobile data off as soon as I get on board though - just to be sure.

Pierre Oreilly - The 'roaming' type of charging structure is full of possible exceptions, well done for spotting it, but think how many people either don't have time or knowledge to check on these things. Many years ago I lost a sizeable credit on my personal phone 'cos I didn't use it for 3 months. It's in the small print but I was exceptionally busy at the time (used my company phone) aaaarrrrrgggghh.

Some changes in the p&o drinks policy. From feb 1 next year, you'll only be allowed one bottle of drink on board at the start of the cruise, and none can be taken on during the cruise. Quite a change from taking on as much as you like which is the current policy. our next p&o cruise is in Feb, so we'll have to comply with that. The on board credit for the future cruise deposit I paid last year was added automatically. Another p&o policy change from jan 1 is that fancy dress, novelty dress or tee shirts with logos or slogans wont be allowed. Suits me - it looks like they may have had some bad experiences to introduce that. plenty of people seem to complain about the lowering standards on p&o, so perhaps that establishes a base and will probably be good for business with a lot of support.

On the qe ATM, what a great ship and what an experience the afternoon tea is. Bought a few future cruise deposits - Cunard is going to stop selling them very soon and p& o already have according to the sales lady.

PierreWhen I bought CCL I timed it using charts and that was a perfect time. I usually buy shares according to charts unfortunately not so with CCL this time.

Yeah, charting works fantastically in retrospect.More likely for the drop are the rising pound and the terribly devastating hurricanes. I hope any of our ships in the area are helping out in some way.

I use charts and there was a clear signal on 31 Aug that the shares had seen the highs. Should hv shorted 100 on spreadbets which at the time would have been a fairly low risk trade.

If anyone's interested in fcds - i've just booked with cunard using one for me and one for the wife, and the benefit is $600 on board credit. Although a powerful incentive, the agent thinks (but wasn't certain), that cunard are also withdrawing them.

Just read that p&o are stopping future cruise deposits. Seems mad to me - for a fifty/hundred quid obc, p&o get to sell another cruise. The few times I've been with p&o recently I've always bought a fcd, hence getting my custom for another cruise. Of course, a hundred quid obc costs p&o much less than £100 - probably in reality a cost to the company of £5/£20. Can't see any logic at all in withdrawing fcds, they seem brilliant and inexpensive marketing and salesmanship to me.

Pierre. They have been upgraded today with a price target of 5700.Wish I had bought 200 shares instead of the minimum 100 for the on board spend. If they continue riding there may well be a share split and if the SharePerk remains at 100 shares will give opportunity to take some profits and still keep the perk.
