Everyone here is offering their opinion. Some of us use fact and logic to support our argument. But NCL & RCL are investing millions and millions of dollars sending their billion ships to the NYC area. They are not doing this on a whim or simply because somebody "thinks" it'll be a good idea. They are doing because it they have done extensive research that indicates they are going to make money. Otherwise it would be stupid for them to take a risk with that kind of money at stake.
