Negative factors for Royal Caribbean shares
The factors in favour of a drop in the Royal Caribbean share price:

Let's now review the main weaknesses of the Caribbean Cruises group with the elements that could hinder its growth and penalise its share price.

  • Firstly, and given its business, the group is being hit hard by the current rise in fuel prices, which is making its costs higher and significantly reducing its margins.
  • There is also little differentiation between the services offered by Caribbean Cruises and those of its competitors with little opportunity to differentiate. This results in relatively limited customer loyalty to the brand.

Indeed, the group's financial situation is still struggling to recover with demand recovering only weakly.
