Day of the Seafarer 2019 – the Great Myth Buster!

Living and working on board is unique. For our our seafarer’s it’s a home-from-home where they can be their whole self, regardless of beliefs and background.

That’s why we’re celebrating Day of the Seafarer, to recognise our colleagues at sea and the diversity of our Carnival UK seafaring family.
