Default How much bigger ?

in cruise news RCI announced a third Freedom Class Ship will be built...at 3000+ how many more and how much bigger are these ships going to become before they hit the saturation point ? Does this mean that Carnival will announce a 4000+ class ship ?

The caribbean islands are just so big and only has so much land space..at what point is this trend going to stop ?

If there is a major downturn in the economy and the cruise lines have over capacity, which line(s) will be left standing It's safe to say Carnival will be one of them, but if they have to eliminate 2 to 3 of their brands which would they be ?

Just got off the Glory Sat and Carlo said in his welcome speech during the time when he was giving the ship size etc that carnival is planning a vessel to accomodate 5000 passengers. Holy buckets-thats my hometown twice with room to spare.

UGH!!! That is insane. I choose to stay with the mid size ships. No "cattle herd" for me.

I think I will stay away from the 5000 passenger ship. Does not sound appealing to me!
