MIAMI, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- At the annual shareholders meeting of Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL; NYSE: CUK) held yesterday in Miami Beach, Fla., shareholders elected a new member to the company's board of directors – Debra Kelly-Ennis, president and chief executive officer of Diageo Canada, Inc.  Kelly-Ennis will serve in a non-executive capacity on Carnival Corporation & plc's 14-member board, effective immediately. She will also serve on the board-level Health, Environmental, Safety and Security Committee.

Additionally, Uzi Zucker is retiring from the board of directors after 25 years of service.  As a result of his retirement, Arnold Donald and Richard Glasier have been appointed to the Nominating and Governance Committee, and Stuart Subotnick to the Executive Committee.

" Debra Kelly-Ennis is an excellent addition to our board with extensive marketing and practical managerial experience gained through 30 years working with highly successful consumer brands," said Micky Arison, Carnival Corporation & plc's chairman and CEO. "At the same time, I would also like to thank and acknowledge the contributions of Uzi Zucker during his long tenure as a member of our board," he added.  Arison noted that Zucker has been designated director emeritus by the company's board.

Since 2008, Kelly-Ennis has served as president and chief executive officer of Diageo Canada, Inc., a subsidiary of Diageo plc, a global spirits, wine and beer company. Prior to that, she was chief marketing officer for Diageo North America Inc., another subsidiary of Diageo plc, for three years.  Kelly-Ennis has also held marketing, sales and general management positions with leading companies such as RJR/Nabisco, Inc., The Coca-Cola Company, General Motors Corporation and Grand Metropolitan plc. She has been honored as one of the Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada for the past three years in a row and was named Leading Chief Executive Officer in 2010 by the Toronto Human Resources Professional Association.

Carnival Corporation & plc's board of directors also approved a quarterly dividend to holders of Carnival Corporation common stock and Carnival plc ordinary shares of $0.25 per share.  The board approved a record date for the quarterly dividend of May 25, 2012, and a payment date of June 15, 2012.
