What to Expect from a Pullmantur Cruise

What to Expect from a Pullmantur Cruise

Largely unknown outside Spain until a few years ago; Pullmantur cruises are soaring to a shore near you and are now being marketed to the British traveller. This Spanish cruise line has revolutionised the travel industry in Spain and is the nation’s largest cruise operator; offering good value and high quality sea ventures with a Mediterranean flair.

Pullmantur was founded in 2000 after purchasing Premier Cruises’ largest and most modern ship: Oceanic and, shortly after, began operating cruises from Barcelona. At the dawn of the new millennium; Spain was only just being introduced to the world of cruising and it was Pullmantur that offered cheap rates and all inclusive deals that appealed to the public. Since then, the Spanish cruise operator has seen many ships join the fleet and has grown from strength to strength.

Royal Caribbean purchased Pullmantur in 2006 in a move which saw several ship swaps from Royal Caribbean and Celebrity and today the formidable fleet consists of five superb cruise ships: Monarch, Sovereign, Empress, Horizon, and Zenith.

Each of the Pullmantur Cruise ships brings an element of Spanish or French (two of the ships are operated by Croisieres de France) charm, flavour and tradition and will flawlessly carry you to locations including: Northern Europe, Mediterranean, Northern Africa, Norwegian Fjords, Iceland, South America, and the Caribbean.
