The price of oil has been dropping like a rock for the past several months.

I think it's more likely they are choosing the cut backs and things like higher steak house pricing to attempt to make up for the low level of prices they've felt force to drop to in order to keep the ships sailing relatively full.

We like the industry, but it doesn't make sense to for us to try and make excuses for them all the time.

I haven't sailed Carnival for 2 years, and then I thought it was very good. I'll be on the Breeze at the end of this month, and I'll be writing daily stories for CruiseMates. We'll see ... but I will be "telling it like it is".
