Did you ever wonder why Royal used these two old ships to transport some crew back to Europe? Are these the most comfortable or efficient ships?  Nope.  Royal decided months ago that these ships weren't coming back to the US.  They will either be purchased by some other cruise line or sent to the beach.

They can unload them on the new Pullmantor when it starts back up

I could see positioning these ships for a re-launched Pullmantur.  Empress was already one foot through that door before.

 

If they were destined to be scrapped why pay the not insignificant layup costs to keep them floating in Souda Bay?

 

We don't know how a restructured Pullmantur might look or if that is even realistic right now.  

 

It's entirely possible even Royal doesn't know what will happen to these ships right now.  If cruising ramps back up quickly it could be back to the routine, if a restart takes a year to get close to normal cruising maybe then Royal's choices are more clear to them.

They are both now back at anchor in their usual resting spot.

And Empress is still available to book on rccl website but Majesty is not.

SO disappointed (but not surprised) that my 11/14 Empress cruise cancelled 😒

I’ve done 5. 1 Thanksgiving (shifted to Allure), 1 Christmas (shifted to Symphony), 1 Valentine’s Day (shifted to Symphony) and 1 shifted to Allure the week before Thanksgiving to make a B2B. What a savings !
