Pullmantur: Divesting non-core activities

When Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines bought Pullmantur in 2006 it acquired not only the cruise business but a far wider travel operation that included an airline. Eight years on, in a move that concentrates on its cruise activities, Royal Caribbean has sold parts of Pullmantur to Gowaii Vacation and Springwater Capital.

However, the Pullmantur Air and Pullmantur Cruise businesses still have a certain amount of synergy, so a strategic partnership between these organisations will continue.

Pullmantur currently operates three ships for its own account, Empress, Monarch and Sovereign, all former Royal Caribbean International ships, while subsidiary Croisieres de France operates two former Celebrity Cruises ships, Horizon and Zenith. In 2015 Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Century will move to the Croisieres de France fleet.
