How Royal Caribbean And Carnival Made A Comeback

Royal Caribbean is leading the $61 billion cruise industry’s comeback. This comes just a couple of years after a 15-month pandemic era shutdown led to questions about whether the industry could ever recover. But the three public companies – Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian – are starting off 2024 with record breaking booking positions and pricing levels. Drawing younger audiences, smart cash management and strong pre-cruise spending have all been contributing factors.
