Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 70%, University of Westminster, course: Branding Management, language: English, abstract: Corporate brands are defined by many as one of the most fascinating phenomena of the 20th century's business environment. In today's reality they are also considered sometimes as a religion, a belief, or even a lifestyle; they are adored, venerated, and coveted, by people and organizations alike (Keller, 2008). Balmer in his article Corporate Brands: what are they? What of them? (2003), defined corporate brands as a product of an organization's corporate strategy, mission, image, and activities, which communicates brand's values and in the meantime affords a means of differentiation from their competitors. It is also said to enhance the esteem and loyalty of the stakeholders for the organization.

Adam Weaver in his article Complexity at sea: Managing brands within the cruise industry (2008), stresses how in the late eighties, corporate consolidation within the cruise industry, had as a result many cruise brands to be a part of a brand portfolio. In the complexity of the cruise industry, culture, languages and country of origins represent a major challenge for managers when adapting their brands across an international environment and portfolios are always bigger (Weaver, 2008). Originally Royal Caribbean Cruise LTD's strategy to overcome the complexity of this issue has been to opt for a Global brand strategy instead of a multiple decentralized local brands strategy, which on the other hand, has been Carnival Corporation's main strategy, also main RCCL competitor, as well as market leader for the global cruise industry (Weaver, 2008).
