Carnival Splendor chugs in and Royal Caribbean awaits
You have to love cruise line advertising.
Take a look at the New York Post front page from this afternoon.
There it is at the top of the fold: the sad-sack passengers waiting to disembark from the Carnival Splendor and next to this breaking news story is a Royal Caribbean ad for its Allure of the Seas, which is “more ship than you ever imagined.”
At this moment, Carnival Splendor passengers have had more of this ship than they ever wanted to imagine.
Just another day in the cut-throat world of cruise line marketing and competition.
