Splendour of the Seas will complete all scheduled open deployment, and no sailings will be altered or disrupted due to the sale. Her final sailing will commence on April 4, 2016, and all officers and crew will remain with the company and will be transferred to other vessels worldwide after the ship leaves the Royal Caribbean International fleet.
"Splendour of the Seas has been a treasured member of the Royal Caribbean International family since she entered service," said Michael Bayley, president and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean International. "She has offered countless guests memorable vacation experiences and we look forward to continuing to provide the same Gold Anchor Service our brand is known for right up to the last sailing."
A Vision Class ship, Splendour of the Seas was built by Chantier's de L'Atlantique, now STX France, in St. Nazaire, France and joined the Royal Caribbean International fleet in 1996. The 69,130-ton ship carries 1,830 guests (double occupancy) and 760 crew.
