According to the news (https://www.cruiselawnews.com/2020/06/articles/disease/is-pullmantur-cruises-ending-operations/)

''There are rumors that all of the Pullmantur ships will be going to scrap. There is nothing substantiated at this point. All three ships, Sovereign (built in 1988), Horizon (1990), and Monarch (1991) and are relatively old and inefficient. The Monarch and the Sovereign (of the Seas) used to be in the Royal Caribbean fleet; the Horizon used to be operated by Celebrity Cruises. At the same time, several other people have informed me that two of Pullmantur’s ships are for sale – the Monarch for $125,000,000 and the Horizon for $65,000,000 – although it is clear that they have been on the market long before the pandemic began.''

Royal Caribbean has announced in the meantime that itself and its partner in Pullmantur have had to apply for insolvency/"reorganization" of Pullmantur:

Also reports that SOVEREIGN and MONARCH, which are both in Napoli currently, are both being stripped of anything useful/valuable. The end is nigh for these beauties, I fear...
