Arison has insisted that the group was "well positioned for a recovery in 2013."
But the gloomy forecasts have caused a drop in the shares listed in London.

While booking volumes for the first three quarters of 2013 are in line with those of last year, Carnival said that ticket prices are lower. The group emphasizes that its European brands "continue to be negatively impacted by the deterioration in the economic environment."
