Josh Weinstein to take the reins from Arnold Donald after being named new Carnival president and CEO

Carnival’s current CEO Arnold Donald will step down from his position in August with company veteran Josh Weinstein waiting in the wings to take up the role going forward






Cruise operator Carnival has announced the promotion of current COO Josh Weinstein to president and CEO effective August 1.

The announcement comes following the news that current CEO Arnold Donald, will step down from his position on the same date, taking up a new role as vice-chair for the company’s board of directors.

A 20-year veteran of Carnival, Weinstein has held a number of senior roles within the company. In his current position, he oversees all major operational functions including global maritime, global ports and destinations, global sourcing, global IT and global auditing. Weinstein was also previously president of Carnival UK, overseeing the P&O Cruises and Cunard brands in the region. Prior to that, he spent 10 years as treasurer for the operator and before that served as an attorney in the corporate legal department.

“I’ve benefitted tremendously from Arnold's guidance and mentoring, and I would like to thank him, our chairman Micky Arison and the entire board of directors for their support,” said Weinstein. “I look forward to building upon the company's successes as we move forward.”

Donald, who has acted as Carnival CEO since 2013, was faced with the huge task in 2020 of navigating the cruise line through the choppy waters of the global pandemic. Despite global cruise operations ceasing for more than a year, Donald successfully guided the company through this period, with the operator returning to full sailings in 2022. Pre-pandemic, Donald led the company to record results, including achieving the company's highest profits in its history.

“Josh is a proven executive who is well-respected throughout the company, serving in key leadership roles, driving strong business results during his tenure and playing an integral part in stewarding the company through the global pandemic,” said Donald.

“His thorough understanding of our industry, operations and business strategy puts him in a tremendous position to lead the next phase of our company's journey.”
