A Fond Farewell: Sovereign of the Seas

As if Americans needed another indication that they are no longer the prime passenger market for cruise travel, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. announced today that Royal Caribbean Intl's Sovereign of the Seas will be reassigned to the company's Pullmantur fleet. In changes scheduled to take place in October and November 2008, the Los Angeles-based Monarch of the Seas will assume Sovereign of the Seas' sailings out of Port Canaveral.

Sovereign of the Seas was once the largest cruise ship sailing from Miami. RCI's first really big ship, she introduced innovative wide-open, spacious atriums to ship interior design.

For complete details, particularly if your cruise is impacted by these changes, see Cruise Diva's Cruise News.

We are really going to miss Sovereign of the Seas here in Port Canaveral. She had so many loyal return passengers, many of whom we saw in the Port Canaveral area twice a year just to cruise on Sovereign. We are happy the Monarch is here, and hope she has the same following and wins over those sovereign passengers. Port Canaveral has plenty of new ships to welcome in the next couple of years and we're proud of the ships we host. See Cruise Ship and Terminal Information for Port Canaveral
