The world's largest cruise shipowner Carnival Corporation denied rumours it would be selling its top-luxury brands and subsidiaries Cunard and Seabourn. Other brands currently under Carnival include CCL-Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, P&O UK & Australia, AIDA Cruises.

Over the last months, the Corporation has been shedding cruise ships because of its voluntary suspension due to the pandemic.

Carnival made a statement stating it had no plans to sell Cunard Line and Seabourn.

“There is no truth to this rumour,” a spokesperson said.

“Cunard and Seabourn are iconic brands for our company, and both lines have a strong track record of success over the years.”

Cunard's cruises on Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 have been suspended until November 1, 2020, and Queen Elizabeth through November 23, 2020.

Seabourn’s 5-ship fleet is on an extended suspension of operations into October and November 2020.
