Responding  to  Carnival's  latest  proposal  Richard  Fain,  Chairman and Chief
Executive of Royal Caribbean Holdings commented:

"Carnival has now announced a fourth proposal. In my view this latest one is no
more real than the previous ones. Carnival's goal is to scuttle our meeting,
secure in the knowledge that any price offered will never need to be paid."

           Shareholders Vote to Adjourn Extraordinary General Meeting

Royal Caribbean's shareholders, convening today at an Extraordinary General
Meeting in Miami to vote on a proposed merger with P&O Princess, decided to
adjourn the meeting. Their action was taken in light of the vote yesterday by
P&O Princess's shareholders to adjourn P&O Princess's own EGM in London.

Richard Fain, chairman and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean, said: "We
are obviously disappointed at the outcome of these meetings. However, we have to
acknowledge that a shareholders' vote is a democratic process, and naturally we
respect the decision that has been reached at the P&O Princess meeting. Now we
will need to consult with our advisors to determine the implication of the votes
and their impact on the merger."
