EDITOR’S NOTE: This marks the first installment of a regular series on the new Carnival Service Values, a journey
that kicked off earlier this year on the Carnival Breeze. Watch this space for further updates on this exciting project!
carnival service valUes: a waY oF liFe
Carnival has earned its title of World’s Most Popular Cruise Line by
providing fun, quality vacations at a great value but the real secret behind
the company’s success has been the friendly service provided by our
dedicated team members who set the standard in hospitality within the
cruise industry. But how do we continually evolve our service standards to
remain on top?
Understanding that creating an emotional connection not only leads to
quality guest service but also fosters more meaningful relationships with
our fellow team members, the company has launched Carnival Service
Values, which defines our culture of service, reinforces the importance of
creating a fun, welcoming environment on board, and emphasizes the need for
respecting each other, our ships and the places we visit.
Carnival Service Values is way more than just a training program – it represents a
new way of thinking that truly gets to the heart of what our brand is all about by
challenging members of the Carnival family to get the most out of their shipboard
experience and reminds them to savor the lasting relationships that they’re
making along the way.
Developed following on a comprehensive Internet survey sent to 35,000 team
members by the respected Gallup organization and focus groups in Miami and
throughout the fleet, Carnival Service Values
takes team members on a voyage of self
discovery, encouraging them to look within
themselves to examine what it takes to be
successful – both on and off the job – while
helping them to embody the program’s
motto of “I Am Carnival.”
Each four-hour “voyage” of Carnival Services
Values is limited to 35 people and combines
engaging activities and breakout sessions
that stress the importance of treating our guests as if they
were entering our home, celebrate team members’ role
within Carnival, and reinforce practices that lead to greater
respect, camaraderie and teamwork.
Carnival Service Values has been introduced on Carnival
Breeze, Carnival Destiny and Carnival Freedom, with the
fleet being rolled out over the next several months. The initial
feedback on Carnival Service Values has been nothing short
of sensational so be sure to stay tuned to both Seaview
and eSeaview for additional updates on this exciting and

Carnival Cruise Lines bid farewell
to Captain Domenico Tringale, who
retired after a distinguished maritime
career that spanned nearly five
decades. To mark the achievements
of this esteemed mariner, a
reception was held at the Miami
headquarters attended by dozens of
his friends and co-workers, as well
as many port professionals he has
worked with over the years.
The event was a wonderful
opportunity to pay tribute to Captain
Tringale – affectionately called
“Mimmo” by his friends and family –
and thank him for his many years of
service to the company.
Captain Tringale joined Carnival
Cruise Lines in 2000 after a
celebrated career that included
posts at Costa, Princess, and
Sitmar cruise lines. In addition to his
many port operations responsibilities
at Carnival, Captain Tringale was
instrumental in the company’s
hurricane planning, as his years of
experience made him very adept at
moving ships and tracking storms
and keeping our guests, crew and
vessels out of harm’s way.
Best of luck in your retirement,
Captain Tringale. You will certainly

Carnival Breeze was officially delivered to Carnival Cruise Lines during a memorable handover
ceremony that included speeches by executives from Carnival and Italian shipbuilder
Fincantieri followed by the first-ever live performance of “Divas,” one of the four new Playlist
The preview of “Divas” was highlighted by a now-legendary cameo by none other than
Carnival President and CEO Gerry Cahill, who donned a wig, pink faux fur cape and
cane and strutted his stuff to raucous applause by the standing room only crowd. The
pictures only tell half the story!
Prior to delivery, every Carnival Breeze crew member underwent the new Carnival
Service Values training which underscores the importance of demonstrating hospitality
to our guests and each other. Additional information on the Carnival Service Values
program is featured in Gerry Cahill's column and on page 2. Crew members were also
trained on the new Marine Evacuation System, an innovative chute-like system that
has been employed to safely evacuate people in a more expedient manner during an emergency.
Thanks to everyone, both shipboard and shoreside, who helped launch our newest “Fun Ship.”
Carnival Breeze is my fourth ship
introduction since becoming president
in 2007 and I have to say each one
keeps getting better and better!
Carnival Breeze is unmistakably
Carnival, with spectacular top-deck
amenities such as WaterWorks and
SportSquare, fabulous entertainment
with Playlist Productions and Hasbro,
The Game Show, and delicious dining
options, including the new Bonsai
Sushi and Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ.
But what really makes this ship stand
out is our dedicated and energetic
team members, who create the fun
and inviting atmosphere that makes
our guests feel at home.
Carnival Breeze represents the
culmination of years of hard work
and planning involving the efforts of
hundreds of shipboard and shoreside
employees. I would like to take this
opportunity to thank everyone who
worked so hard to make the Carnival
Breeze a success!
While Carnival Breeze is earning raves for its spectacular
on-board features, the ship’s spirited and energetic crew is what
makes this new ship sparkle and shine.

Only high caliber doctors and nurses are selected to serve as members of the
elite corps of Carnival’s fleet medical officers.
To ensure high standards, Carnival’s department of medical services strictly
adheres to medical officer qualification standards established by the cruise
ship medicine section of the American College of Emergency Physicians.
The guidelines call for ship’s doctors and nurses to be competent in a wide
range of health care disciplines such as emergency medicine, intensive care,
traumatology and general medicine. Certification in Advanced Cardiac Life
Support (ACLS) is also required.
Dr. John Bradberry Background checks are conducted with both local police departments and
medical licensing boards. Each applicant undergoes an in depth interview to
ensure not only clinical competence, but excellent interpersonal skills, as well.
Just as Carnival’s crew members represent a wide variety of nationalities, so do
Carnival’s doctors and nurses. They are recruited from a multitude of approved
countries such as Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, European Union

Dr. Louise Berry who volunteered her time at the
2012 Olympic Games in London this summer.
Louise is one of 2,400 medical personnel who were hand-selected from a pool of more than 70,000 applicants to oversee the
medical operations for both Olypmic athletes and attendees. The volunteers ran the gamut of all medical positions, including
doctors, nurses, first responders, pharmacists, physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors.
Louis worked as a crowd doctor in the Olympic stadium and in the Olympic Village in Stratford during the games, as well as
the closing ceremony and at the shooting competition at the Royal Artillery barracks in Greenwich.
Thanks for all you do, Louise!

Following a highly successful season in Europe, Carnival Breeze
will sail on a 15-day trans-Atlantic crossing then reposition to
Miami for year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean departures
beginning in November. Carnival Breeze will be the largest
“Fun Ship” ever to operate from South Florida.
Carnival Breeze is a spectacular addition to the “Fun Ship” fleet
and many thanks to the dedicated team members, both aboard
ship and ashore, for their incredible efforts during the ship’s start-
up period and its inaugural European schedule. We can’t wait
until Carnival Breeze arrives in Miami!
