Royal Caribbean to transfer ‘Majesty of the Seas’ to Pullmantur
Royal Caribbean Cruises has announced that Majesty of the Seas will transfer from its Royal Caribbean International cruise brand to its Pullmantur brand in 2016. Majesty of the Seas’ last three-night sailing for Royal Caribbean International will depart on April 29, 2016. She will then enter dry dock before joining the Pullmantur fleet, allowing her to be tailored to fit Pullmantur’s brand standards and offerings.
Richard Fain, chairman and chief executive officer, Royal Caribbean Cruises said, “Majesty of the Seas has created wonderful memories for millions of guests, and we expect this record of success to continue as she transitions to Pullmantur. The vessel’s transfer is an excellent business opportunity for both Royal Caribbean and Pullmantur. We are fortunate that our mix of brands allows us the flexibility and opportunity to expand in key strategic markets.”
With the addition of Majesty of the Seas, Pullmantur’s total guest capacity will increase by more than 20 per cent.
Jorge Vilches, president and chief executive officer, Pullmantur said, “The transfer of Majesty of the Seas will play an important role in Pullmantur’s Latin American growth strategy, and helps us become one of the most widely recognised brands in that market. The additional capacity will help us meet the rising demand for Pullmantur’s distinctive Latin-style cruise holidays.”
