Carnival denies rumors it will sell Cunard or Seabourn cruise lines
Carnival Corporation denied rumors swirling around the internet that it would sell Cunard and Seabourn cruise lines.
Rumors began circulating online on Wednesday that Carnival was eyeing the sale of the two brands, according to "cruise insiders".
The fact that Carnival has been shedding cruise ships during its voluntary cruise suspension seemed to make the idea it would sell those lines logical.
Overnight, Carnival stepped in and denied it had plans to do so.
