Royal Caribbean Sheds Over 12,000 Berths

(Cruiseindustrynews) – With the news that Royal Caribbean Group has sold Azamara, the world’s second-largest cruise operator has accelerated its shedding of berths and capacity.

With the onset of COVID-19, Pullmantur was the first to go, as the Spanish brand was quick to file for insolvency in Spain. Royal Caribbean was a 49 percent partner in the joint venture and owned the ships, which were quickly scrapped.

Later in 2020 and not coming as a surprise, Royal Caribbean Group then sold the Majesty and Empress of the Seas to new owners, as the two oldest ships in the Royal Caribbean International fleet were divested.

A few weeks later, the Azamara news became official, with Sycamore Partners buying the Azamara brand and its trio of vessels.

By the Numbers:

Pullmantur

Royal Caribbean International 

Azamara
