It isn't global warming that is causing the sea levels to rise, it's the displacement of all the new, huge ships that are coming online.

This shows that the economy and cruising are back.

Take care,
Mike

I agree that the economy is improving. There is a bunch of new houses being built in my neck of the woos and we have help wanted signs.
However, with all those big ships coming out we are going to need many new cruisers to fill them up.

I think you will see all of the cruise ships without many balconies retired or sold to other cruise lines like Punta or Aaida.
Also the Asian and Australian markets are going to open up more and probably see cruise ships staying in those regions year round.
