Review of Empress Of The Seas

Launched in 1990 as Nordic Empress, Empress Of The Seas was previously sailing as one of the Pullmantur Cruises ships, Pullmantur Empress (2008-2016).

History - construction & ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. RCI is a cruise line brand established in Norway and currently based in Miami, Florida. As of September 2015, the line controls a 17% share of the world cruise market, with 23 cruise ships in service and other three on order. All vessels under the Royal Caribbean brand have had their names ending with "of the Seas" since 1991. Sister brands owned by Royal Caribbean Ltd. are Azamara Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, CDF Croisières de France and Pullmantur Cruises.

Empress Of The Seas cruise ship (Royal Caribbean)

During its service history, the Empress cruise ship (construction order name “Future Seas”) was operating under the names Nordic Empress (1990-2004, constructed for the Admiral Cruise Lines /defunct), MS Empress (aka “Pullmantur Empress”, 2004-2008, operated by the RCCL’s subsidiary company Pullmantur Cruises, Spain) and under its current name “Empress of the Seas” (between 2004-2008, and from 2016 onwards).

  • In 1987, the Royal Caribbean company merged with the future ship’s owner Admiral Cruises, so the Admiral brand was dissolved. The still under construction vessel was incorporated into the RCI fleet and named “Nordic Empress” – the last RCI ship with a name without the suffix “of the Seas”. The vessel’s name was changed to the current “Empress of the Seas” on May 8, 2004, following an extensive refit and refurbishment.
  • In March 2007 was announced that starting March 2008, the ship will be transferred to Pullmantur. The Empress’ final Royal Caribbean cruise was on March 7, 2008. Her inaugural cruise as Pullmantur Empress was on March 15, 2008.
  • November 2012, the vessel was the first in the Pullmantur’s fleet to receive the line’s new logo and hull colors.
  • October 2015, the shipowner announced that Pullmantur Empress, after a dry dock refurbishment in March-April 2016 will be transferred back to the RCI fleet.

Pullmantur Empress cruise ship

The 48,563-ton, 1,910-passenger cruise ship Empress Of The Seas is classic and luxury, attractive to cruisers who prefer to relax between visiting exotic destinations. In 2008, Royal Caribbean International thought the ms Empress had to retire, but Pullmantur Cruises proved them wrong.

  • 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).
