COVID-19 Claimed These Cruise Brands.

Posted by

With COVID-19 taking its toll on the industry and with some ships and brands still out of service, the lack of income has claimed a handful of smaller cruise brands since the global pandemic started.

Pullmantur Cruceros
June 22

Madrid-based Pullmantur Cruceros was the first cruise line to be claimed by the COVID-19 pandemic. A joint venture between the Royal Caribbean Group and Cruise Investment Holding, the brand filed for reorganization under the terms of Spanish insolvency laws on June 22.

At the time, Pullmantur’s board of directors claimed that the unprecedent impact of the pandemic made the action necessary. While the website of the Spanish cruise line is still online, two of its ships are being scrapped in Turkey. The third was withdrawn from DNV GL’s database in August and is anchored off Greece, awaiting its fate.
