RTE Today Show Cruise Special
This is the Golden Age for Cruise Lines, with strong brand equity, a loyal customer base and a superior product, they currently enjoy massive profitability. Among the three largest operators worldwide, Carnival earns $31,181 per minute, while Royal Caribbean takes in $16,165 and NCL books $9,273. Buoyed by massive super-ships that command a premium, operating profit has nearly doubled in the past four years. With each new vessel, the industry manages to absorb the new inventory without having to reduce prices or sail with lower-than-desired occupancy. Cruise lines have expertly navigated these waters, welcoming a record 27.2 million passengers cruising in 2018. On today's show we discuss some amazing cruises from Alaska to the Caribbean from New York to the Mediterranean - It's never been a better time to enjoy that special cruise holiday.
