The group owns several companies in whole or in part. These include: Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, TUI Cruises (50%), Pullmantur Cruises (49%), Croisières de France (49%), Grand Bahama Shipyard (40%), SkySea (35%), Wamos Air (19%).

It will accelerate the growth of « expedition » cruises. Royal Caribbean will thus diversify its portfolio of cruise offers. Significant synergies will enable savings to be made thanks to Royal Caribbean’s purchasing power.

Silversea is one of the specialists in luxury cruises and expeditions 

Silversea will surely be the « crown jewel » for Royal Caribbean

In spring 2017, Silversea added the slightly larger « Silver Muse » (596 passengers). Demand is growing and investment is needed to offer more offerings.

Silversea’s cruise expeditions already serve over 800 destinations on seven continents.

Ships are intimist. All cabins are spacious, suites with ocean views and most include butler service.
