QUESTION 1

Caribbean Vacation Incorporated, is evaluating the purchase of a new cruise ship. The ship would cost $500 million, and would operate for 20 years.

As planning manager in charge of new projects – you are required to address the following key issues and to present your findings in the form of a Report to the Board of Directors.

  1. Prepare a Net Present Value (NPV) profile of the purchase and estimate the Internal Rate of Return (IRR), (to the nearest 1%) from the graph.
  2. Is the ship purchase attractive based on these estimates and indicate with calculations on how far off could Caribbean Vacation’s cost of capital be (to the nearest 1%) before your purchase decision would change?
