Carnival Cruise Lines ranked number 1 brand out of ALL US brands for most-improved consumer perception in YouGov’s BrandIndex mid-year buzz report.
Making it even more impressive, the improvement in Carnival’s consumer-perception score doubled the 2nd most improved brand.
This quick rebound in consumer perception is reflective of Carnival’s commitment to refreshing their on board product and programming as well as their investment in keeping consistent operational performance.
Carnival’s Vacation Guarantee
Carnival is so sure in their onboard product that they’ve beefed up their Vacation Guarantee to where it’s the strongest in the travel industry. With Carnival’s Vacation Guarantee, if you are unhappy with your cruise experience for ANY reason in the first 24 hours of your cruise, then you can get a 110% refund, complimentary transportation home, and a $100 on board credit on future Carnival Cruise.
Carnival Cruise Prices
Right now, Carnival Cruise prices are the lowest we’ve seen for Summer cruises. Carnival recently announced that for the first time in the history of their company they will allow cabins to sail unsold and lower prices any further to fill them.
Plus, with the quick rebound in consumer perception I expect demand will continue to increase. In 2015, there will not be as many ships in the Caribbean thanks to a lot of redeployment to Asia and other non-Caribbean destinations. So, increased demand and less supply means pricing will go back up.
My expectation is that the prices we are seeing for 2014 Summer Cruises will not be seen in 2015.
