The World’s Most Popular cruise line, Carnival Cruise Line (CCL) has released its new campaign ‘100% Holiday’ via Today the Brave.
Capitalising on Carnival’s existing brand awareness, the 100% Holiday campaign was designed specifically to drive consideration and conversion further down the funnel. The performance-skewed campaign resulted in 149 assets, crafted to address four unique audience segments, across two different ships in the Australian market.
‘100% Holiday’ is a big idea that recognises the fact that most of us spend a lot of our holidays not ‘being on’ holiday. Between planning where to stay, looking for things to do, searching where to eat or shop for food and trying to keep everyone entertained, we’re actually left with very little “real” holiday time.
On a Carnival cruise it’s 100% holiday from the moment you step on board – simply unpack once and let the fun unfold. Off the back of this platform, Today the Brave commissioned bespoke research and were able to dissect the various audiences according to how they would want to spend a ‘100% Holiday’.
The campaign has been designed to illustrate just how much fun can be packed into a Carnival holiday, ensuring holidaymakers are maximising their well-earned time off. 100% Holiday was created to help Aussies reappraise the value of a cruise, highlighting that once guests are onboard they are able to enjoy a range of the 45+ activities onboard with minimal disruption.
Says Jade Manning, creative partner, Today the Brave: “100% Holiday is a compelling reason to book a Carnival cruise for your next getaway – everything is taken care of from the moment you step on board; no more planning, packing and repacking, trying to decide on what to have for dinner or how to entertain the kids.”
Says Vince Osmond, creative partner, Today the Brave: ‘There’s such a lovely universal insight behind the campaign – it’s one of those ideas that can keep giving.”
100% Holiday is currently in market across OOH, digital (OLV and high impact display), social and radio – with placements booked via Speed.
Says Anton Loeb, senior director, sales and marketing, CCL: “Carnival is experiencing an exciting period of growth, fuelled by the escalating demand for cruise holidays. The value and convenience of a Carnival cruise is second to none and 100% Holiday wraps it all up in our usual fun, playful style.”
