Appetite for Travel Should Provide Support, but Carnival's Sails Yet to Catch Wind

Jaime M. Katz Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Jaime M. Katz |

Carnival remains the largest company in the cruise industry, with nine global brands and 91 ships as of October 2022. The global cruise market has historically been underpenetrated, offering cruise companies a long-term demand opportunity. Additionally, in years prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the repositioning and deployment of ships to faster-growing and under-represented regions like the Asia-Pacific had helped balance the supply in high-capacity regions like the Caribbean and Mediterranean, aiding pricing. However, global travel has waned as a result of COVID-19, which could spark longer-term secular shifts in consumer behavior, challenging the economic performance of Carnival over an extended horizon.
