Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: October 18, 2015

18 Oct 2015
Matt Hochberg

It’s been an exciting week as we have a front row seat to all the Royal Caribbean news from this week!

Royal Caribbean gave us all a sneak peak at their new brand marketing, which aims to breakthrough cruising stereotypes and show how exciting a Royal Caribbean cruise can be.

Dubbed, "Come Seek", the new marketing campaign will begin on October 19th and will be a combination of television and web based ads.

The campaign is directed at Millenials, who have certain preconceptions about what a cruise is and Royal Caribbean wants to erase those notions.

The "Come Seek" campaign will also integrate live billboards that use Periscope, a new Tumblr page port recommendations by crew members and ads that promote authentic experiences.
