Write a report demonstrating how the marketing strategy of a Cruise ship company (e.g., P&O Cruises, Carnival etc.) would differ when targeting two different Roy Morgan lifestyle segments.
Specifically, pick a type of package cruise and pick two Roy Morgan segments (see pp.408-409 in text) for them to target. Then explain how the package cruise company’s marketing strategy (i.e. positioning and marketing mix (4p?s)) would need to differ for each of the segments (Roy Morgan) chosen, use theory and evidence to justify your choices.
In your answer you should choose a cruise ship compnay that you have experience with or admire and would like to work with in the future as the context for your discussion. If they have more than one product or service, please choose one to focus on.

Step 3: Application
