Pullmantur to Base Monarch of the Seas in Southern Caribbean

Pullmantur will be taking over the Monarch of the Seas from Royal Caribbean International in 2013, and with the ship comes a stronger Latin America strategy, according to company executives.

The Monarch will join Pullmantur’s Zenith, Empress and her sister, the Sovereign.

The 2,744-passenger, 1991-built Monarch of the Seas will not follow the rest of the Pullmantur fleet from Brazil to Europe, but instead be deployed in the Southern Caribbean year-round, on eight-night itineraries, poised to grab customers and revenue from an emerging Latin American market.

This year, the Ocean Dream left the fleet, for a new home with Peace Boat, while sister-company CDF took over the Horizon, leaving Pullmantur with three ships, as opposed to having to fill five in a difficult Spanish market.
