This shows that the economy and cruising are back.
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.
Carnival Liberty New Year's Eve 2007
Liberty of the Seas 5/2008+11/2009
Allure 1/16/ 2011
Independence of the Seas 12/29/2013 Top-notch!
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.
Live life to the fullest because tomorrow may never come!
