Thornton joined Carnival in 1989 as manager of special projects and held numerous positions across the organization in marketing, itinerary planning and deployment. 

“The consummate professional with encyclopedic knowledge of every aspect of our operations, Terry quickly earned the respect of everyone who worked with him  --  from co-workers to port personnel and destination partners,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival president, in a statement. “His contributions to our company and industry are immeasurable.”

Thornton is the latest longtime executive to step down from Carnival Corp. brands amid the Covid-19 pandemic started. Princess, Holland America Line and Seabourn also saw departures in recent weeks.
