Strategic Report The Directors consider that, within the DLC arrangement, the most appropriate presentation of Carnival plc’s business strategy is by reference to the consolidated strategy of Carnival Corporation & plc. Accordingly, the below Strategic Report presents the strategy and business review for the combined group, which is required to satisfy reporting requirements of the Companies Act 2006. 1. Letters to Shareholders. A. Chairman’s Letter to Shareholders Dear Shareholders, Although fiscal 2013 was a year of challenge for Carnival Corporation & plc, it was also a year of great change for our company. As you know, last July I decided to split the role of Chairman and CEO after serving in that dual capacity for almost 25 years. Although I remain Executive Chairman, I have transitioned out of day-to-day operations. My tenure as CEO was an extraordinarily rewarding experience. I am humbled by the many talented people I have been privileged to work with over the years.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
