    I strongly disagree. CCL is just starting a great comback. Concordia is behind them.

    Yes, it is true. Call RCL investor relations to get the credit.. They will probably need proof from you that you own the stock.

    Invest4lt-- Thanks for the comments. Well, after all these years I think I know something about the industry. The "real-CC"L'board died a slow death with less and less posts. This board doesn't have many either in comparison to AAPL or TSLA. As for CCL, In my mind I see it as a big ship that is plowing thru the water; hard to stop and hard to turn around. So what is it doing now? I see it as finally moving forward again but not at full speed. I was out of it for awhile but kept an eye on it. After the Costa sinking I perked up an paid more attention. Lots of uninformed posters claiming financial ruin only encouraged me. So I bought back in at a nice low price So I am up 35% in the last 2 years. . I anticipate another 12 to 15 percentage rise in the price in the next 12 mo.
    PS. I did the same with GM

    I have watched this company since its beginnings and actually owned the stock 15 years ago. I made some money off it. At one point the owned the Caribbean, so to speak. However, the operating management could never get its act together to offer a superior product -- only a "me too" product. Then some venture capitalists bought control and put some money into the company. And finally bt some new big state of the art ships with debt, btw.
    Now IMO, they are not going to knock out CCL or RCL. For any TV ad NCL can buy CCL can buy 10. For any Sales Representative they can put on the road, CCL can put 10. CCL with their 100 ships can and does base ships in China, Australia, S. America, US East coast, West Coast, Gulf Coast, England, Italy, Germany, etc. Impressive as that is, that doesn't mean NLC can't make money.
    Also, another negative, NCL, IMO, has a lot of debt and in case of an economic downturn that could hurt. Also, I worry that the venture capitalists, or whatever you want to call them, the ones who really control the ship line could issue more shares and dilute. Finally, the stars might be in proper alignment and the stock will move up. Good luck to you, I will be watching from the side lines for the time being.
