Jalesh Cruises (the same cruise line that got rid of their only vessel Karnika) has confirmed that they bought the Empress of the Seas. They bought her because she is smaller in size and capacity than the Karnika. They haven't confirmed if they also bought Majesty of the Seas, but they did say that they plan to acquire a second vessel soon.

I doubt they'll enter Majesty of the Seas into the fleet. I suspect that, because her sister ships Pullmantur Sovereign and Pullmantur Monarch already have been sold for scrap to Aliaga and because the similar size Karnika was sold for scrap, that they'll resell Majesty of the Seas to Alang, India which will end the Sovereign-class forever. Here are the links.

A update to this. While the executives of Jalesh Cruises did buy the Empress of the Seas, they won't be use her to restart the Jalesh Cruises brand. Instead, they'll use her for a new cruise line called Cordelia Cruises. Here is another link.

Majesty of the Seas has been renamed to Majesty. This hints that she will sail to Alang, India.

Well I do not want to disappoint you but we will see more cruise ships to be scrapped very soon. Aliaga will start buying new cruise ships in this year.

I don't know if it was mentioned here before, but those of you who are interested in Pullmantur's late SOVEREIGN might like to have a look at the 2018 Spanish comedy YUCATÁN.

The film was shot mostly aboard SOVEREIGN and at her ports of call during an Atlantic crossing from Brazil to Spain in 2016.

Think I'll watch it tonight on Netflix Smiley

Jens

Edit:

I had added a link when first posting this message but for whatever reason it doesn't work.
Just use your favourite search engine and look for "Yucatán film"...

Empress of the Seas is once again just Empress. Majesty of the Seas is now just Majesty. The name change is making me think that they're likely going to the shipbreakers.

The New York-based Dream Hotel Group has purchased Empress of the Seas and she is to be operated by their Mumbai-based subsidiary Waterways Leisure Tourism. Waterways Leisure have taken over the former Jalesh Cruises and will relaunch under the name, Cordelia Cruises, Empress of the Seas will be given a new name and employed on the Indian cruise market.

Yes, but she has been temporary renamed to Empress, according to her AIS.

The "of the Seas" part of their name is a Royal Caribbean Trademark. So any ship sold by them would have to drop it as soon as the ship left the fleet. That's why they are suddenly Empress and Majesty pending their rename by their new owners.

Having bought the company and its ships for what is regarded as a bargain price we can just hope that they have some spare cash available to buy the lone R-class ship still out there, Pacific Princess, and bring her back to her sisters.

Are you worried that the Pacific Princess could be sold for scrap? I don't think that's possible. She's not that old, but her being in the Azamara fleet does make sense as half of the R-Class would belong to Azamara if that were to happen. Besides, the other four R-Class vessels belong to Oceana Cruises, so that could be something.
