Cruise options to increase following Royal Caribbean purchase

Date Posted: 31 Aug 2006
Category:
A greater variety of cruises in European cruises and Latin America could soon be available following the news that Royal Carribean has bought the Spanish cruise operator Pullmantur.

The Madrid-based company is the largest cruise operator in Spain and runs five cruise ships to Europe and Latin America.

"Pullmantur offers a terrific strategic opportunity for Royal Caribbean to further grow our presence in the European and Latin American markets in a major and tangible way," said Richard D Fain, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Royal Caribbean.

"We have made significant inroads into these regions through our Royal Caribbean international and Celebrity Cruises brands and this combination will allow us to accelerate our growth in these markets."

Royal Carribean already sails to the likes of the Greek Islands with its Splendour of the Seas, while the Navigator of the Seas can be seen sailing to the French capital of Paris on short cruise breaks.

Pullmantur was founded in 1971 and Alfonso Lopez Perez, general manager of the company thinks the move is an "excellent opportunity".

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
