Royal Caribbean announced that its first quarter profit fell 92% from the same period last year - even though its revenue rose by 6% to over $1.2 Billion for the quarter (wow).

Reportedly, the profit decrease is due in part to higher operating expenses for its cruises (plus, I assume, becuase of its purchase of Pullmantur.)

Does this spell price increases for its future sailings?

Should loyal RCL cruisers send in donations to help the line? I am willing to start the ball rolling by returning the t-shirts I got with my ShipShape Dollars

Overbuilding has a tendency to do things like that.
