Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC and Partner Former Attorney General of Louisiana Announce Investigation into Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.:RCL17:41 EDT Thursday, July 28, 2011 NEW ORLEANS (Business Wire) -- The law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”) and KSF partner, former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., announce the commencement of an investigation into Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (“Royal Caribbean” or the Company)(NYSE:RCL) to determine whether it has violated federal securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements to its shareholders. Shares of Royal Caribbean plunged almost 10%, or over $3.25 per share, on July 28, 2011, the day the Company revealed that an accounting error would force a revision of its full-year profit guidance. The prior day, the Company reported a second-quarter profit, but said it would have to revise prior statements because of an error in the way it accounted for interest expenses for amortizing financing fees. It reduced its full-year earnings guidance by 10 cents per share even without the accounting change, and by 20 cents per share with the change. Royal Caribbean was already dealing with a drop in demand for cruises in the Eastern Mediterranean because of unrest in Egypt and Libya. It's also facing higher fuel costs. Its shares have fallen 35 percent since January.
