1997 Annual Report:  1997 Annual Report Travel agents book > 95% of all passengers: “...Carnival Cruise Lines is ranked the top “agent friendly’ cruise line in the industry…travel agents ranked Carnival and Holland America number one in 10 of 13 categories, and voted Carnival 1997’s “Cruise Line of the Year”” 1997 Annual Report:  1997 Annual Report “As economies grow and thrive, people age and geographic boundaries become less distinct, people seek new places to go and new experiences…as Baby Boomers hit their peak earning years, and recreational spending and leisure time interest levels continue to rise, we believe more will consider cruising as an outstanding vacation choice.” 1997 Annual Report:  1997 Annual Report “Cruise Lines International Association projects that by the year 2000, more than seven million North Americans annually will cruise, with the greatest growth among first-time cruise passengers.” 1997 Annual Report:  1997 Annual Report “The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis predicts that by the year 2005 there will be a 30-plus percent growth in the 41-59 age group, a prime demographic group for cruising, and a very positive indication for the cruise industry.” 1997 Annual Report:  1997 Annual Report “…in North America alone, only 8 percent of the population has ever cruised, and just two percent of 240 million annual vacationers go on a cruise...” SEC Form 10-K (1997):  SEC Form 10-K (1997) “ The growth in the Company’s revenues during the last three fiscal years has primarily been a function of the expansion of its fleet capacity.”

significantly change in relation to changes in passenger loads and aggregate passenger ticket revenue.” Strategic Issues:  Strategic Issues Carnival Corp and it’s competitors are building bigger ships to satisfy “economies of scale” and consumer preferences. However, analysts predict overcapacity in the future. Does Carnival continue with the strategy of “build it, and they will come”? Strategic Issues:  Strategic Issues Demographics…. average age of cruise passengers has been falling steadily in the past ten years (56 to 44) recent surge of interest from 20 year olds by 2005, 30-plus percent growth in 41-59 age group How does Carnival market to these various target markets? Strategic Issues:  Strategic Issues Carnival is trying to appeal to “first time” (2% of vacationers) and “repeat” (only 8% of N.A.) customers. The needs and preferences for these customers at times appear to be in opposition to each other. How does Carnival market to both segments? Overcapacity Recommendations:  Overcapacity Recommendations Mergers and acquisitions Market new ships Sell and/or redeploy older ships Expand European and other geographic regions Target untapped market (92%) Customer Profile Recommendations:  Customer Profile Recommendations Market segmentation “Contemporary” 20 - 30 year olds Singles Marriage and Honeymoon College students Families Customer Profile Recommendations:  Customer Profile Recommendations Market Segmentation “Premium” Aging Baby Boomers “Luxury” Affluent passengers Marketing Recommendations:  Marketing Recommendations Target first-time customers buy one, get second half-price early booking discounts kids travel free with each paid adult special incentives for travel agents to book first time cruisers increased cruising education and awareness (brochures with pricing, Q&A, infomercials) Marketing Recommendations:  Marketing Recommendations New or expansion of geographic regions: targets both first-time and repeat customers new ships = new places new itineraries river cruises Corporate-sponsored trips promote to large companies conventions and conferences Marketing Recommendations:  Marketing Recommendations Promotions for repeat customers frequent flier and frequent cruiser miles used interchangeably and leveraged for customers benefit free cabin upgrades Technology Internet (on-line quotes, special Internet discounts and online brochures) Y2k (already being addressed) Innovation Recommendations:  Innovation Recommendations “All inclusive” pricing option (i.e., including alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks) NO tipping and therefore increase salaries so wages include average tip amounts Affiliate with a bank or internally provide a cruise financing program Cruise with a celebrity Latest News:  Latest News 4/3/98: Buys Britain’s Cunard for $500M 2/24/98: Takes early delivery of new ship 2/4/98: “Best Honeymoon Cruise Value” in recent magazine poll 12/19/97: Record earnings for Q4 and year 9/29/97: Web site most-visited cruise line site on the Internet Latest News:  Latest News 7/21/97: Plans world’s first smoke-free cruise ship 4/24/97: Extends vacation guarantee through 1998 2/28/97: Expands alternative dining; goes fleetwide with 24-hour pizzerias 11/24/96: World’s first 101,000-ton cruise ship detailed Brochures & Tips:  Brochures & Tips Costco brochure Travel agent brochure “First Time Cruiser’s Guide”
