History - construction & ownership

Pullmantur Cruises S.L. is a Spanish cruise line headquartered in Madrid. It started operations in the late 1990s as an offshoot of Madrid-based namesake travel agency "Pullmantur". 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. 

The 47,413-ton, 1,382-passenger cruise ship Pullmantur Zenith was constructed as a sister ship to the first newbuild of Celebrity Cruises, mv Horizon. Her interior designers were Michael Katsourakis and British John McNeece. In 2007 the ship was transferred to Pullmantur Cruises and used for Mediterranean voyages. In 2014, the Zenith was moved to CDF Croisieres de France fleet (subsidiary company of Pullmantur), joining her sister, the L’Horizon.
