Carnival Cruise Line Names New Vice President and CCO

Chris Chiames


Carnival Cruise Line announced this week that Chris Chiames, former senior vice president of corporate communications at Sabre Corporation, will join the cruise line as its new vice president and chief communications officer.

Chiames, who spent just over two years at Sabre, also served as the vice president of corporate affairs for Orbitz Worldwide, and held government relations and communication positions for Airlines for America.

He will report directly to Carnival President Christine Duffy.

“Chris is a hands-on communications leader and strategist with more than 30 years of experience in travel and tourism,” said Duffy. “With his vast experience and fresh perspective, we expect Chris will set a new standard of excellence for Carnival’s global communications function.”

“It’s an exciting time to join the Carnival team as the company brings fun to more than five million guests each year,” said Chiames in a statement. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to create a world-class communications function that supports the overall business as Carnival continues to grow.”
