Seven months have passed since the former Sovereign of the Seas was beached in Aliaga for scrapping.
MS Sovereign (formerly Sovereign of the Seas) was one of three large cruise ships of the Sovereign class operated by Pullmantur Cruises and formerly by Royal Caribbean International.
On 23 July 2020 Sovereign arrived and was beached at Aliağa, Turkey, where she was scrapped.
She sailed on her maiden voyage on January 16, 1988, and was initially based at the Port of Miami.
In 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Sovereign and MS Monarch were placed into “cold lay-up” and Pullmantur Cruises filed for financial reorganization.
According to reports, the interiors of the ships were stripped of “everything of value.” On 23 July 2020 she was beached in Aliağa alongside her de ella sistership Monarch, which was beached one day before.
