Royal Caribbean plans to offer up to $2 billion in bond offerings, on what seems to be improved investor optimism.
The cruise company announced that there would be two separate offerings, $1 billion in senior guaranteed notes and $1 billion senior convertible notes, both due in 2023. It will use the funds to pay down debt and for general corporate purposes.
The coronavirus pandemic compelled cruise companies to stop voyages.
