Carnival Cruise Line Honored for Aiding Mariners in Distress

Carnival Cruise Line received an award from the U.S. Coast Guard recognizing the cruise line’s role in aiding mariners in distress.

The AMVER System, sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard, is a computer-based voluntary global ship reporting system used worldwide by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to persons in distress at sea. The AMVER Awards Program was inaugurated in 1971 to recognize those vessels which regularly participate in the AMVER System and assist others in distress at sea.

The duty to render assistance at sea to those in need is a universal obligation undertaken by the entire maritime community. Carnival and other cruise operators frequently render assistance at sea at their own cost, on their own initiative, or at the direct request of the United States Coast Guard and other authorities, including through the AMVER program.
