Special item: Why Carnival Cruise Line is more grateful than ever to its former customers

According to Carnival Corporation’s recently released annual report, the cruise line expects to rely less on new customers. On the contrary, following the sale of several vessels last year to improve liquidity, total fleet capacity was reduced by 13%. In turn, the hope is that the established base of returning cruisers will be more evenly distributed among a smaller fleet. More information here.
