Carnival Corp. receives more than 550 industry awards!
Earlier this month, Carnival Corporation, the world’s largest travel leisure company, revealed just how well respected it is. The company said that it received 556 industry awards and recognitions in 2017 across all nine of its brands. The plaudits were awarded for a wide range of areas centering on exceeding guest expectations and providing extraordinary vacations. These areas included vacation value, the quality of cruise ships, onboard entertainment, shore excursions, itineraries, nightlife, and overall customer service. Or, in other words, pretty much everything!

Carnival Cruise Line, one of Carnival Corp.’s largest businesses, was named “most trusted cruise line in America” by Reader’s Digest for the third year in a row. It also won 10 USA Today Awards and 10 Best Reader’s Choice 2017 Awards – the latter group including Best Ocean Cruise Line and Best Cruise Line for Millennials. It wasn’t just Carnival’s eponymous business that stood out though – every one of Carnival’s nine brands took home a bevvy of commendations last year.
Roger Frizzell, the corporation’s chief communications officer, made the following comment:
"We focus on exceeding guest expectations in everything we do, so each of these awards is a strong testament to the success of our collective efforts to provide the world's best vacation experiences at an exceptional value.”
“Over 12 million people trust us every year with their hard-earned money and precious vacation time, and our 120,000 employees around the world have a tremendous passion for earning and protecting that trust. While our most important feedback comes directly from our guests who consistently provide high guest satisfaction scores, it is rewarding for outside organizations to honor our efforts with such a remarkable collection of recognitions, which is often based on consumer input."
