slot machines, Broadway-style shows within a 1380 seat theatre or an ice show. There are issues though. Passengers are experiencing loud staterooms that are connected to the Boardwalk area and the lack of privacy on the balconies are a concern. The price for all the many amenities and the ability to plan each day begins at $1649 per person for a double occupancy stateroom all the way up to $16,659 for a deluxe 1524 square foot suite. (Dunham Potter, 2010) In October 2014, the third quarter net income for Royal Caribbean as a whole corporation was $490.2 million (2.19 per share), which is up from $365.7 million ($1.65 per share) a year previously. Their net income as a whole entity was $492.9 million ($2.20 per share). Total revenues for that quarter (including passenger ticket sales and onboard spending) was $2.39 billion, versus $2.31 billion the previous year. According to Wall Street estimates, the company is forecasting $4.55 per share for the year. But later that week their shares fell in the NYSE 2.29% or go from $1.45 per share. (Satchell, 2014) There are still some unknown variables for costs for maintaining and running of the cruise ship and it is important to check all results and make sure that there are no unexpected or unrealized results. All the variable numbers should be the same and so should the capital budgeting method be used. One of the first things that my group should do is to ensure that the numbers given to us is correct and figure out which of the budgeting methods were used to conduct the screening decision. This way we are “comparing apples to apples instead of apples to oranges”. References

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
