CASE STUDY 3 Carnival is the world's largest cruise company. Its massive market share has established Carnival's leading position in the cruise industry. The company has 101 giant cruise ships and ten completely different routes. There are 8.5 million passengers carried each year. Established in 1972, Carnival expanded its carrying capacity through the acquisition and transformation of cargo cruise ships in the early days and purchased a large number of new cruise ships ten years later. With the rise of the cruise industry, Carnival expanded rapidly through the acquisition of other cruise companies and became the world's largest cruise company after merging with the British (P&O Princess Cruises) in 2003. History of Carnival Cruise Lines Carnival Cruise Line was founded in 1972, Ted Arison took over the ship Canadian Empress in Miami and changed its name to Carnival, thus establishing Carnival Cruise Line. In 1975, Carnival purchased the British cruise ship Empress and changed its name to Carnival to expand its cruise fleet and provide tourists with Caribbean vacation travel services. Carnival relies on short-term cruise routes, Las Vegas-style decoration, and atmosphere, coupled with ultra-low prices, quickly gain a foothold in the cruise market. In 1978, Carnival continued to expand its cruise fleet, purchased the Val, and renamed it Festival, and underwent a refurbishment and configuration of up to $30 million, making it the largest cruise ship departing from Miami to the Caribbean. Through successive acquisitions of cruise ships, Carnival expanded rapidly and occupied most of the cruise market. Since the 1980s, Carnival has acquired the original cruise ships and embarked on the construction of new cruise ships. The first to be launched was the Tropicana built-in 1982. This cruise ship was the starting point for the cruise industry to build a new type of vacation cruise, which sparked a boom in cruise ship construction. Carnival became the first cruise company to advertise on TV and won the title of "World's Most Popular Cruise Line." Following the boom in a stock issuance, it went public on the New York Stock
