Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. reports 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 will depart on April 29, 2016. It will then enter dry dock before joining the Pullmantur fleet, allowing it to be tailored to fit Pullmantur’s brand standards and offerings.
“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,” said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “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%.
“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 recognized brands in that market,” said Pullmantur’s president and chief executive officer, Jorge Vilches. “The additional capacity will help us meet the rising demand for Pullmantur’s distinctive Latin-style cruise holidays.”
