In a move that will surprise few, if any, Royal Caribbean has finally announced the transfer of it’s final first generation mega ship, Majesty Of The Seas, to the Spanish brand, Pullmantur. The ship will conclude a final, three night Bahamas sailing on May 2nd, 2016.
Following this, she will be dry docked before rejoining her two former sisters and fleet mates, Sovereign and Monarch. The trio will form the backbone of Pullmantur’s increasing attempt to attract the lucrative Latin market and, though no formal deployment has yet been announced, it seems likely that the ship will go to the Caribbean.
Built in 1992 and with a lower berth capacity of 2,350 passengers, the 74,000 ton Majesty Of The Seas has been a staple on the short Bahamas cruise run out of Miami for several years.
So far, no replacement has been announced for the short cruises that she currently operates.
As always, stay tuned.
