Tyler Walker's insight:

Lowest Price Guarantee from Carnivial sounds like an excellent idea to me.  First of all, it's a great way to fill ships a little easier.  It will also increase customer satisfaction because Carnival is really looking out for the consumers here.  The only thing that worries me is that theres is only a 2 day time period after booking the cruise that you have to notify Carnival if you found somebody with a better deal they need to match.  Otherwise, i think this is a cost effective offer.

I think this promotion has its advantages and disadvantages. It is good that if a guest finds a lower Carnival advertised rate then they can get back 110% of the difference. I can't help but think that those guests that have booked earlier this may leave a "sour" taste in their mouth to think that someone that has just booked is getting a better deal than they who booked a long time ago. I think something should be offered to them as well.

I think it's an awesome marketing technique for carnival. I've heard Royal has the same concept, but adds "lowest price guarantee" for air fair as well. I work with Marriott, and we all know that is a very big and known company. They have followed the "lowest price guarantee" concept since they've opened and look how great that has gone for them. It keeps their loyal Marriott reward members coming back. Considering Carnival had its fair share of negative publicity and this is a great way to get cruising back to cruising with them

I love how carnival offers the low price guarantee promotion. It's a great way to attract new and existing customers.

6 Cruise Industry Trends to Watch for in 2014

6 Cruise Industry Trends to Watch for in 2014 | Cruise line | Scoop.it

Tyler Walker's insight:

Now that the biggest cruise ships can hold up to 6000 passengers, it's interesting to see cruise lines coming up with smaller boats with more attractions instead. I would personally love to go on Royal Carribeans' QUantam of the seas due to the simulated skydiving. I never heard of river cruising but that sounds like it'd be a really cool experience.  The no smoking policy seems to be an excellent idea, especially for ships that attract children.  FInally, it comes as no surprise that cruise lines will keep on improving the food and technology

A couple of eye-popping new ships, the ever-growing popularity of river cruising, and efforts to restore consumer confidence are among the headlines in cruise news as 2014 unfolds.

 

But don’t expect ships to keep getting bigger. Instead, look for theme park-style attractions and new offerings in dining and entertainment. Here are some details.

What Are the Best Cruise Lines for Adventurers?

What Are the Best Cruise Lines for Adventurers? | Cruise line | Scoop.it
I want a floating adventure minus the megaship, insane crowds, bad food, and shuffleboard.

Tyler Walker's insight:

Wow! All of the cruise ships mentioned in this article sound like they have an excellent itinerary and environment. Of course all of them are very expensive, but rewarding and probably worth it. Lindblad offers excursions with National Geographic for people who want to see nature. SeaDream seems like it'd be very expensive, formal, and an older crowd. Silversea has a great option for travelers who want to create their own itinerary. And last but certainly not least Oceana has the around world in 180 days all inclusive for $40,000 stopping at each continent and close to 100 countries. I hope I'm lucky enough to be on a ship like this someday, when I have the money and time.

WOW! I am so in to try to save up to go on these adventure cruises, especially Silversea Cruises. from Barcelona to Ft Lauderdale. speechless.
Laura Piza's curator insight, February 1, 2014 10:24 PM

I thought this article was interesting because it acknowleges the common hesitations of travelers to try cruising while giving great alternatives than the normal chains such as Carnival and Royal Caribbean. I would love to try the Silverseas Cruises because it is more flexible than any other cruise I have experienced.

Oceana cruises are a for sure on my to do list, that's if I can ever win the lotto at least! Great article!

Bud Light’s Cruise Ship Hosts Massive Super Bowl Tailgate Party - PSFK

This year's sports event starts off with a 4-day celebration of electrifying music and entertainment.

Tyler Walker's insight:

Wow "Setting a new bar for tailgating" is definitely an understatement. I almost wish I was back home in New Jersey for this one. I think it's really interesting that included the intrepid museum to really give off the America vibe, being that football is an American Sport. Bud Light really went overboard on this one! Sounds like it will be a great time and great for promotion
