Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd


Overview


Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd is an American global cruise company incorporated in Liberia and based in Miami, Florida. Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd was formed in 1997 when Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, (founded in 1968) was merged with the recently purchased Celebrity Cruises, (founded in 1988). The decision was made to keep the two cruise line brands separate following the merger, as a result Royal Caribbean Cruise Line was rebranded Royal Caribbean International (RCI) with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd established as the new parent company of both Royal Caribbean International (RCI) and Celebrity Cruises. The company is the world’s second-largest cruise line operator, after Carnival Corporation & plc. Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd fully owns three cruise lines: Royal Caribbean InternationalCelebrity Cruises, and Azamara Club Cruises. The company also holds a 50% stake in TUI Cruises, a 49% stake in Pullmantur Cruises and held a 49% stake in CDF Croisières de France. The CDF Croisières de France brand ceased operations in early 2017.
