Default Further Inaccuracies in CruiseMates News Articles

I wonder what is going on with CruiseMates News? This post about MSC Cruises...

Quote:
*** MSC Cruises is announcing it will build a fourth "Musica" class Panamax ship, MSC Magnifica, thereby increasing the Company's fleet to 12 ships within the next three years. Since 2003 MSC Cruises is taking delivery of one vessel a year. This makes MSC Cruises today the cruise line with the newest fleet and the highest balcony ratio in the world.
...is obviously wrong in that MSC does not have, nor will have after the MSC Magnifica is delivered, the "highest balcony ratio in the world."

It is one thing to be put in a press release as advertising hype; after all, it is up to the consumer to separate the wheat from the chaff. However, it is a different story when a reputable company such as Internet Brands (the parent of CruiseMates), gives it legitimacy by placing it in a news article.

Marc,

Two questions.

1. Where did you get your information to correct the error?
2. Which line does have the highest ratio of balcony cabins?
