Sorry for the delay in replying Fred but my BT Broadband went down on Christmas Eve. Good timing. They "Hope to look at the problem this week".
Like all big shipping organisations, Carnival Group, use a variety of flags. Carnival Cruise Line ships are usually registered in Panama. Princess use Bahamas or Bermuda. Holland America usually use Dutch West Indies and Costa use Italian registration.
