  • The former Pullmantur Empress ship was launched as "Nordic Empress" in 1990. It was previously operated as "Empress of the Seas" by the Royal Caribbean company (RCI) in the period 2004-2008. The Nordic Empress ship was the last RCI vessel which name didn't have the "of the Seas" suffix.
  • Empress joined the RCI fleet in March 2016 following an extensive refit in Bahamas. Being built as the first mass market cruise ship - designed specifically for short cruises from Florida - Empress started round-trips out of Miami to Bahamas, Mexico and Grand Cayman. Some of the 5-night Western Caribbean cruise itineraries included only Cozumel Mexico (overnight stay).
  • In 2015 was decided that the MS Empress (commonly known as Pullmantur Empress) will be transferred to the RCI's fleet starting operations in Spring 2016. The vessel's inaugural season was planned for the Caribbean with round-trip departures from Miami. However, due to extended dry-dock refurbishment period, the ship's maiden voyage (March 30) and the following four cruises were cancelled. The vessel officially entered service for Royal Caribbean on April 25, sailing on a 5-night Western Caribbean ("inaugural cruise") itinerary to Mexico (visiting Costa Maya and Cozumel).
