Have Royal Caribbean Cruises's shares ever split?

Royal Caribbean Cruises's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 August 1998. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Royal Caribbean Cruises shares which in turn could have impacted Royal Caribbean Cruises's share price.
