Majesty of the Seas to be scrapped? Seajets its new owner

Greek maritime news source Arxipelagos is reporting Seajets is the new owner of the 1992-built Majesty.

While Royal Caribbean Cruises announced in December it had sold the Empress and Majesty of the Seas to an undisclosed party based in Asia, it now appears the latter ship may now be owned by Seajets, a Greek ferry operator.

If true, it would another ship in the Marios Iliopoulos-led portfolio of Seajets, which has not commented on its strategy, but industry sources believe the company is looking to quickly charter, sell or scrap the ships depending on market conditions.

Other Ships Seajets Bought:

  • P&O Oceania (acquisition date: July 2020)
  • Holland America Maasdam (acquisition date: October 2020)
  • Holland America Veendam (acquisition date: October 2020)
  • P&O Pacific Aria (acquisition date: October 2020)
  • CMV Columbus (acquisition date: October 2020) (sold for scrap)
  • CMV Magellan (acquisition date: October 2020) (scrapped)

As we have previously reported, the CMV Magellan has been sold for scrapping in Alang India, where there are also 5 other cruise ships, Grand Celebration, Marco Polo, Ocean Dream, Karnika, and apparently this will be the final destination of CMV Columbus.


I am an active crew member, and passionate person for the cruise industry, I work as Assistant Waiter for Royal Caribbean, and started this project while stucked at home during the pandemic. Thank you for your support.
