Royal Caribbean (RCL) has good reason to believe its financials this year will be rather buoyant. 

Higher stock prices, strong employment gains and overall confidence in the economy are likely to power Royal Caribbean (RCL) to a strong vacation season, chairman and CEO Richard Fain told TheStreet in an interview. The plunge in crude oil should also help the bottom line, too.

"There seems to be enthusiasm in the public, confidence that this is here to stay -- this is probably the best tone in the market I have seen in 29 years," Fain said. 

Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean's sister brand Celebrity Cruises is getting ready to launch its newest class of ships called Edge. The brand's CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo shares what will set the new brand apart.
