Subject: New Carnival Comfort Bed Sleep System Highlights Stateroom Amenities Upgrades

NEW CARNIVAL COMFORT BED SLEEP SYSTEM
HIGHLIGHTS STATEROOM AMENITIES UPGRADES

MIAMI (May 31, 2005) - A new stateroom sleep system manufactured
exclusively for Carnival Cruise Lines is the latest in a series of cabin
amenity upgrades that are part of the "Today's Carnival" fleetwide
product enhancement program.
The Carnival Comfort Bed ensemble, including custom pillows, duvet and
cover, pillowcases and mattress set, provides an unsurpassed level of
lavishness in shipboard sleep accommodations. Introduction of the new
bedding system, already on several ships, is ongoing and is expected to
be implemented fleetwide by the end of the year.
Manufactured in Europe, the Carnival Comfort Bed features an eight-inch
spring mattress designed exclusively for Carnival Cruise Lines.
Completing the custom sleep system is a duvet made from 100 percent
hypoallergenic down and sheets made of a high quality cotton blend. The
duvet covers and pillowcases are of an ultra-fine, ring-spun,
satin-striped cotton blend, creating a luxurious and comfortable sleep
environment. The material is also highly durable for long-lasting use
and attractiveness.
New Generation Pillows, made of non-allergenic micro fiber to create a
fluffy, down-like consistency, will be featured in all staterooms. In
suite accommodations a special "suite pillow menu" will offer guests the
choice of a variety of different pillow types for their sleeping
comfort, including a luxury goose down and a firm latex pillow.
"A restful, luxurious sleep is an important component of the vacation
experience and we are extremely excited about this opportunity to brand
a high-quality sleep system with the Carnival name," said Bob Dickinson,
Carnival president and CEO.
Among other stateroom upgrades that have been incorporated on Carnival's
ships are high-quality fluffy bath and hand towels, plush terrycloth
bathrobes in all ocean view staterooms, in-shower soap and shampoo
dispensers, and in-cabin amenities baskets containing a variety of
name-brand product samples. Stainless steel ice buckets and attractively
bound directories round out the new high-end feel of each stateroom.
"Over the past decade, we have enhanced nearly every aspect of the
shipboard experience," noted Dickinson. "As our guests have become more
discerning, we have implemented these upgrades in our ongoing commitment
to continue to exceed their expectations."
Carnival, a unit of Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL;
NYSE: CUK) is the largest and most popular cruise line in the world,
with 20 "Fun Ships" operating voyages of three to 16 days in length to
the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New
England and Europe.
The line currently has two 110,000-ton SuperLiners - Carnival
Liberty and Carnival Freedom - scheduled to enter service between now
and February 2007.
Information and reservations on Carnival's "Fun Ship" cruises
are available by contacting any travel agent, calling 1-800-CARNIVAL or
visiting carnival.com.

Supposedly they are replacing all the bedding on all the ships. I am sure it will take time but from the press release it looks like even the Holiday and Celebration will be getting it.

that's great, but it won't be before we cruise. I understand the Holiday is going into dry dock I think in September so I guess that's when she'll her new bedding.

I've been on Holiday twice since she began sailing out of Mobile. In October it appeared that the coverlets, sheets, and pillows were new but did not pay that much attention to the mattresses. In fact, the beds looked better on the Holiday than the Grandeur and Veendam! Have fun! Any cruise is what you make of it!

Veendam 3-03
Grandeur of the Seas 3-04
Holiday 10-04
Holiday 3-05
Zenith 12-05 . . . . counting the days!

I can only hope the Spirit goes into dry dock for the upgrade prior to my Sept cruise....it would be great to have those beds for 12 nights.

Can't wait to try the new beds. I thought the beds on the Fantasy were extremely comfortable when we sailed her.

We were on the Pride 5/15-5/22. We were lucky in that we were the first ones to use the brand new mattresses and new pillows, and down comforter. It seemed that everyone on Empress deck were being reftted with new mattresses. Sure slept like a baby.
