    surprised this is not down 20 ... everyone knows that Covid is not a big deal...what is a big deal is the revenue loss and how non profitable to cruise industry is today and WILL BE TOMORROW as inflation increases with rising fuel, labor, and food costs.

    Empty ships, higher oil prices, double the debt load, junk bond status, and a Federal Reserve expected to raise rates. Somebody is way off-sides on this stock with a forward PE of 260.

    What's the P/E ratio for RCL? Important since hugh multiple or no P/E ratio companies are crashing everywhere.

    RCL is a big short. Awesomely cheap puts right now. Shares already diluted and debt much higher. No PPP free money to save them from what will be a rough year, and permanent shift in sentiment against cruisin'

    RCL already postponed some of the cruise schedule till April. This time there will be no bail out from the gov't and the only vision they can tap their resources on getting fund is thru dilution LOL.

    I’ve seen this before. The institutions are going to dump their shares on the regular investor and begin to short. It’s only a matter of time. Especially when there are suspicious upgrades when future profitability is not certain at all. Covid has permanently worsened $RCL fundamentals. This is priced to perfection and the assumption that cruises will go back to normal (it won’t)

    The Market Maker, we all know who that probably is, and all the institutions, make a killing on stocks like these selling calls and loaning stock to short sellers....why sell?

    Hidenberg Research Tweets 'We are short $RCL, which we believe to be one of the most dislocated "re-opening" stocks on the market today.'

    I would not be surprised if this tanks to $60 a share in the coming weeks.

    Beyond the revenue pitfalls, $RCL has faced increased costs.

    In 2020, fuel accounted for ~13% of $RCL’s total cruise operating expenses. Oil costs have risen, today at ~$80 / barrel, acting as another headwind.

    2022 the year of the cruise. Pent up demand will rocket share price of RCL in spring and summer. Record bookings at highest ever prices on the way. Massive short covering just around the corner.

    Say What
    Reading through this board it is clear the shorts are desperate. I will admit short term, because of all the cases on cruise ships and not being able to disembark, I thought the cruise stocks would take a hit and get back to the mid 60's. Short term there is no question there is an argument to be made for shorting cruises. Also if you see covid being a major disruptor through the summer, again the shorts are correct, but omicron is the best possible thing to have happened to the world and will take care of vaxing the people that don't want to get vaxed. Heard immunity will be coming. Endemic stage is 1-2 months off. No masks for cruising come summertime. RCL will be anywhere between 90-110% of 2019 revenues come Q3. Yes they have taken on more debt and some cruise lines have diluted their stock, but the dollar has been diluted as well and $100 is no longer $100, stocks and home prices reflect the new normal, so $81 is really more like $74 in relationship to where the stock was. Once everything is back up and running at full strength RCL is a $140 stock. If you think the revenues won't return to at least 75% of 2019 then the shorts are right. RCL is in the best financial shape of all the cruise lines. Not everyone had the foresight to buy in the low 20's and have a 4x return, but if you buy now and wait 1-2 years you can at least get 50-75%. I will stick around another year and maximize my returns. Good luck to all.

    No matter how bad this company does, the stock stays strong. With the amount of debt they have,
    The stock should be under $10.00!

    Stock goes up and it goes down. Even RCL with debt beyond their eyeballs and the financial is abysmal there is a day when it will turn green. However, the trend is still remain on the downward trend. Keep on enjoying the price as I am patience with my put option position with months of expirations. Lets see when they report that earnings next month and the coming interest rates spike up.

    Corona cases and deaths have been been trending upwards all January. Cruising will not be going back to normal any time soon. Expect corona to be a constant headwind all year long.

    Cruise companies are canceling cruises ... less revenue ... yet, you get these types of headline...

    Canceled customer orders are always bad for business...period, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Stocks correlate almost 100% to revenue growth, and their revenue is not growing and they are not to big to bail or jail.

    RCL retailers will be lining up to get out before the insiders beat them to the punch LOL. Everyone knows that RCL will dilute shares for them to survive. It is a no brainer LOL.

    Clearly Wall Street is expecting at least $1.50/share in profits in the last quarter. That's what it needs to justify current stock price.
