EXCELLENT! I'm so happy that Carnival and their associated lines WON'T be building the Mega Ships that RCI has elected to build. I love the Spirit, and Conquest class ships and frankly, did NOT enjoy my last cruise aboard RCI's Mariner of the Seas, simply because there was too much crowding, and too many souls aboard. Lets build new 100.000 ton ships, and continue to enjoy cruising aboard the wonderful Carnival ships.
Somehow I expect that CCL ships will continue to slowly creep up in passenger capacity, they just won't make the giant leap like RCCL.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
