I just had one heck of a great idea. After reading John Heald’s posts on his blog for the last few weeks I realized just how much he hates to fly, but he still does fly. But what about all those of us that will not fly no matter what. I think the Carnival CORPORATION should get into the across cruise line scheduling/booking business. If Cunard’s transatlantic crossings and all the other sisters had there schedules timed so a person could take a Cunard transatlantic from New York to Southampton then transfer on to lets say the Carnival Splendor for it’s 12 day cruise of Europe then get back on a Cunard ship to return to New York I think that would sell if sold as a complere package. A Cunard round trip is guess what 12 days just like the Splendor’s so you wouldn’t even need a hotel stay. The same thing could be done on this end for Europeans coming to New York. When they get to New York they could then do a roundtrip cruise out of New York to either the Caribbean or New England/Canada then return on a Cunard ship to Europe.
With a CORPORATION advertising staff pushing this it could work. How about “CRUISE THE CARNIVAL FAMILY” or “CARNIVAL WE ARE A FAMILY” I even got a tune for that one. I can just see a commercial featuring the best of the whole family.
