The rumor out there is that they are expected to announce a new class of ships at the Oasis inaugural.

RCL fanatics might slam me, but the numbers don't lie. Just looking at the statistics I threw together, I think Royal Caribbean is going to be hard pressed to compete with any line in CCL Corp or even with sister lines; Celebrity, et al.

If the cruise market was in the same place it was 5 years ago, building up at this rate would be acceptable, but its not. Its declining. And to pull out of the decline, the general economy has to fully recover first, something I don't see happening in the next 5 years.
