Tui Cruises buys Splendour of the Seas

Royal Caribbean ship to switch to Thomson Cruises
Royal Caribbean International’s Splendour of the Seas will switch to a cruise line operated by tour operator giant Tui from summer 2016, TTG Digital reports.
The 1,830 capacity vessel will replace Island Escape, currently operated by British line Thomson Cruises’ sister company Island Cruises. The ship will be sold to Tui Cruises, a joint venture between Tui Group and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, but will be operated by Thomson Cruises
“This is the first step in our fleet modernisation and transformation strategy and will bring an enhanced offering to our customers with more balcony cabins than ever before, a wider choice of suites, an increased number of dining options and extra entertainment and activity facilities,” Helen Caron, managing director of Thomson Cruises, said.
