Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, which has enjoyed the unique privilege of having its bayfront corporate headquarters located within the port, right in the middle of all the maritime action, does not like the idea of a soccer stadium being built on its turf, and they're ready to rumble.

Lawyers at the ready? Let the battle begin.
