Last Voyage from Gulfport, Miss., July 6

MIAMI (07/03/03) - Carnival Cruise Lines has
confirmed that, based on current Mississippi
River levels, the company will proceed with its
previously announced plan to return the Carnival
Conquest to New Orleans for year-round seven-day
departures beginning July 13, 2003.

The 2,974-passenger vessel, which was deployed to
Gulfport, Miss., March 9, will make its final
voyage from that port July 6. During the 18 weeks
that Carnival Conquest was homeported in Gulfport,
the ship carried some 60,000 guests.

The deployment to Gulfport was necessitated due to
rising water levels in the Mississippi River,
which combined with low hanging power lines down
river from the Port of New Orleans, posed a
potential safety issue. Water levels on the
Mississippi River have since receded, enabling the
vessel to safely return to New Orleans.

Carnival Conquest will re-join the 1,452-passenger
Holiday, which operates four- and five-day Mexico
cruises from New Orleans. "We are very pleased
that Carnival Conquest will return to the Port of
New Orleans, a favorite among our guests and one
of Carnival's fastest growing homeports," said Bob
Dickinson, Carnival president and CEO.

Including Carnival Conquest and Holiday departures, Carnival carries some 300,000
passengers annually from New Orleans. Carnival
Conquest launched year-round seven-day western
Caribbean cruises Dec. 1, 2002. Ports of call on
this program include Montego Bay, Jamaica; George
Town, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico.
