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.

If anything the cruiselines need to go smaller, but add the newer amenities that came later with the larger class ships. (balconies all around, Movies Under the Stars, In Cabin interactive TV, etc...)
The Conquest class is OK, but a little big for our taste.

I too say "thank you Lord!"
I do love the Conquest, but I wouldn't want to be on ANYTHING bigger than her.

Some day there will a ship too big for home port. Embarkation will be a tender.

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.
