Work from the shared maritime team will be consolidated in Germany and Southampton in a phased operation which will take about 9 months to complete. A spokesman said:

“This move will affect up to approximately 50 people out of more than 1,000 staff who are based in Carnival House in Southampton.

“All other departments covering both brands, including commercial, sales, marketing, finance and IT are unaffected.”
