Early Findings

During our preliminary research, we were able to provide a background profile on Kenneth Jones as well as a brief overview of the health and well being of Carnival Cruises on its own. Below is an overview of our early findings.

Background

  • Kenneth Jones lives in Miami, Florida.
  • In 1990, he graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and Communication.
  • He currently is the Chief Marketing Officer (since 2017) and Vice President of Corporate Marketing (since 2013) for Carnival Corporation.
  • Previously, he has worked as a Chief Operating Officer for Knight, Inc. He was with the company for about 8 years.
  • He also was the director of Internal Communications Agency for the Walt Disney Company from 2001-2005.
  • Lastly, he was a founder/partner of Push from 1996-2001.

Carnival Welling

  • Carnival has faced some obstacles the past few years, since they are currently in the crossfire of global unrest.
  • Also, a drawback of the cruise line is that they are not able to stop in Cuba, so fewer cruisers are interested in the company.
  • They also have been facing high fuel prices.
  • In addition, the company is still in the midst of a five-year probation sentence for a 2016 criminal pollution conviction.
  • Because of this case, the company lost a total of $60 million.
  • However, despite all of this, the company plans on incorporating 19 new ships between now and 2025.
  • The company currently has 26 ships that sail to locations in the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, Bermuda, Alaska, Canada, New England, Hawaii, the Panamal Canal, Transatlantic destinations, and Australia.
  • Experts also say that the company's bookings and revenue are up so far this year.
  • In fact, their 2018 revenue rounded off at $18.9 billion, as opposed to $17.5 billion in 2017.
  • In the first quarter of 2019, the company saw a revenue of $4.7 billion, which was higher than the first quarter of 2018 at $4.2 billion.
