Through its parent company, Pullmantur Cruises was purchased in 2006 by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Pullmantur offers high-quality, high-value cruising with a strong Spanish-Mediterranean flair. Company's hold on the Spanish cruise market started when the founded in 1971 Madrid travel agency Pullmantur, chartered ms Seawind Crown (Premier Cruises) in the late 1990's.

Pullmantur Horizon is not a small ship, able to navigate any sea, however used mainly for a few routes in Europe, Mediterranean based cruises and Caribbean voyages (since 2008).

Pullmantur Horizon has a sister ship, mv Zenith, and both are currently operated by CDF “Croisières de France”.
