“Everyone at Carnival is willing to help in your journey to grow as an individual. I developed leadership, time management, public speaking, teamwork, and technical skills and learned something new every day. Carnival provided me with opportunities to participate in our very own hackathons, talk to other vendors such as Cisco and Riverbed, gain exposure to quality assurance testing and work with my Global Connectivity team to develop a deeper understanding of network and data centers onboard. I loved it so much that I decided to take on a full-time role! ”
“Carnival is home to many of us - a place with a safe and happy work environment where everyone always feels welcome. As an intern, I had the opportunity to learn about diverse cultures, meet new people at events throughout the year, improve my technical IT skills, and hone in on my public speaking abilities. There is a place for everyone here. It doesn’t matter where you come from or what you do - at Carnival, we have the energy, the expertise and the people to guide you through the first steps of your professional career. I know for a fact that Carnival can lead you to the job of your dreams. Upon completion of the program, I was offered a full-time position!”
“This past summer has been the most critical in determining what path I am going to take following my graduation. My mentors at Carnival made it all possible for me with their one-on-one coaching and hands-on exposure in their day to day on-the-job responsibilities. I have never been so sure of my next steps in the world of marketing and consumer relations. Simply put, thank you Carnival!”
“Everyone at Carnival was incredibly welcoming and happy to help wherever possible. I learned so much about the cruise industry, met so many inspiring people, and gained real-world experience. The opportunities for mentorship, professional development, and project management work shaped me into a better person and young professional. The ship tours and delicious meals were a bonus!”
“From the networking to the friendships, my internship experience with Carnival was one to be remembered. One thing that was unique to the Carnival program was the group projects, something I felt was very beneficial as collaboration is a fundamental part of work. My mentor and team were always there when I had any questions, the environment overall was friendly and everyone was always willing to help. If you are not familiar with the corporate world, Carnival is a great place to start.”
“The internship program at Carnival exceeded all my expectations. I was given the tools and experiences needed to become an asset to the FP&A team and advance in my career. From FUN ship visits to professional development seminars, I am truly glad I chose FUN!”

The best thing about the Rotational Analyst program is exposure. Even at the interview stage, I get to meet with the management team to learn about different aspects of the business -- these conversations enables me to always think about the big picture and how my work could deliver greater values.Zhengyuan (Donald) Li Rotational Analyst
The Rotational Analyst program has supported me with offering targeted trainings on not only the technical skills, but also soft skills such as time management and communications skills. I’ve received great professional advice from business leaders across different functions at Carnival through executive lunch & learn sessions. It is also a great way to learn about the company’s history, current strategy and future scopes. The nature of the rotational program drives me to constantly learn new things about the business and develop new skills as I move to different functions. It also allows me to experience different leadership styles and learn from people with diverse backgrounds.Quinglan (Evee) Fan Rotational Analyst
