Stop Carnival Cruises from Using Dolphins as Entertainment

Target: Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line

Goal: Don’t allow Carnival Cruise Line to exploit dolphins.

More than 550 dolphins are held captive and used for entertainment for cruise ship passengers. The dolphins are forced to please tourists in facilities in the Caribbean. Every day the dolphins are forced to interact with hundreds of tourists. Carnival is one of the top cruise companies that exploits these beautiful, intelligent creatures.

Carnival carried 25 million passengers in 2017. They profit a great deal from their swim-with-dolphins excursions, where tourists pay hundreds of dollars to spend 40 minutes with the captive dolphins. Carnival profits from these excursions so much that they are not going to stop unless we make them. Demand that they stop allowing tourists to swim with dolphins and allow these beautiful creatures to live in peace.


Dear Ms. Duffy,

Dolphins are not here for human entertainment. These beautiful creatures are forced to work in dolphin theme parks along the Caribbean coast—just so tourists can get a 40-minute encounter and a video to show their friends. These intelligent dolphins deserve more than living the rest of their lives in captivity. It’s not moral to hold these beautiful creatures captive for a small profit.

Carnival is one of the biggest cruise companies in the world. Action needs to be taken by Carnival so that other cruise companies follow. The dolphin-swim industry is disgusting. Dolphins in captivity experience mental and physical stress, higher infant death rates, and lower life expectancy. These dolphins do not deserve to be exploited for the sake of a vacation. Carnival needs to step up and show that this industry should no longer profit from exploiting animals. We demand that Carnival demonstrate the first steps in changing cruise experiences and making them animal cruelty-free.
