Royal Caribbean says farewell to Majesty of the Seas and Empress of the Seas

December 21, 2020 Cruise, Headline News No Comments Email Email

Royal Caribbean International is saying farewell to two if its oldest ships, Empress of the Seas and Majesty of the Seas, which are reported to be sailing off into the sunset later this month.

All Royal Caribbean would say is that the ships have been sold to what Royal Caribbean says is an “undisclosed party, based in Asia-Pacific, that will release details for future sailings at a later time.”

Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International said, “Empress and Majesty of the Seas made indelible marks on the cruise industry with their revolutionary design and size, touted as the cruise industry’s most ground-breaking ships when they were introduced, they continued to make history throughout their more than three decades of service”.

He added, “Saying goodbye to these two beloved ships is a major moment in Royal Caribbean’s history, one that is difficult but necessary, and “With plans for new, innovative ships to join our fleet in the upcoming years, we look forward to our guests and crew continuing to make new memories with us.”

Royal Caribbean said that when she launched in 1990 the Empress was the first ship designed for three- and four-night cruises, with her initial sailings to the Bahamas from Miami, with Empress also making history as the first cruise ship to sail out of Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey when Royal Caribbean opened the terminal in 2004 and in 2017, she took center stage again when she set sail on the line’s inaugural cruise to Cuba.

According to the company The Majesty also played a crucial role in Royal Caribbean’s commitment to continuously redefine the industry, when she was launched 1992 as the third ship in the Sovereign Class, operating 7-night Western Caribbean cruises from Miami.
