Royal Caribbean sells Majesty and Empress of the Seas


Royal Caribbean International announced on December 16 the sale of its Empress of the Seas and Majesty of the Seas ships to an undisclosed buyer in the Asia-Pacific region.

Both ships will depart the fleet later this month. The Empress, which launched in 1990, and the Majesty, which launched in 1992, are the two oldest ships in the company’s fleet.


Both ships were considered the most innovative ships in the cruise industry when they were introduced. They were in service for three decades since their launch.

Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International commented that “Saying goodbye to these two beloved ships is an important moment in Royal Caribbean’s history, one that is difficult but necessary. With plans for new and innovative ships to join our fleet in the coming years, we hope that our guests and crew will continue to create new memories with us. “


In September, the Carnival company revealed plans to sell or scrap 18 ships, which resulted in the elimination of Carnival Cruise Line, Carnival Fascination, Carnival Imagination, Carnival Fantasy and Carnival Inspiration.

Parent company Royal Caribbean Group sold its three ships under its jointly-owned Spanish brand, Pullmantur, the Monarch and Sovereign, originally the Sovereign of the Seas and Monarch of the Seas, and the Horizon, which sailed earlier this year. for Celebrity Cruises.
