The company has drawn $3 billion in credit earlier this month. Carnival said in its filing to the US Securities & Exchange Commission: “Covid-19 has had, and will continue to have, a materially adverse impact on our financial condition and operations, which impacts our ability to obtain acceptable financing to fund any resulting shortfalls in cash from operations. The spread of novel coronavirus and the recent developments surrounding the global pandemic are having material negative impacts on all aspects of our business.”
