Carnival Cruise Line’s President Makes First Cruise Ship Visit

Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line, made her first cruise ship visit since the shutdown when she went on board Carnival Sunshine earlier today in Miami.

The team of Carnival Sunshine, which was docked at PortMiami’s Terminal E, provided Duffy a warm welcome as she met with senior officers, toured the ship with Captain Leonardo Contarino, Chief Engineer Dinko Biskupovic and Hotel Director Steve Scandale, and engaged with the crew members who are on board providing essential services to maintain the vessel and preparing for Carnival Cruise Line’s eventual return to service.

“Ship visits are one of the favorite parts of my job and it was really wonderful seeing and interacting with the Carnival Sunshine team who were excellent hosts. Hopefully this is the first of many ship visits and a clear indication that we’re on the road back to restarting operations,” said Duffy.

“The crew truly enjoyed seeing Christine in person – it was a most welcome moment for all. More than anything, we can’t wait to begin service again to provide our guests with wonderful vacation memories,” said Captain Contarino.

Carnival Cruise Line currently has all cruises canceled through the end of June 2021. The cruise line last sailed in March 2020.
