(4:45 a.m. EST) -- Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has confirmed that its much-loved Baltimore-based Grandeur of the Seas -- known as "Lady G" to its loyal following -- is set to leave the fleet in April 2021.
Grandeur of the Seas will join Spanish line Pullmantur Cruises, with Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas repositioned to Baltimore in spring 2021.
In a statement, Royal Caribbean said: "Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. today announced that Grandeur of the Seas will be leaving the Royal Caribbean International fleet in early April 2021 to join our Spanish partner Pullmantur Cruceros.
"Later that month, Enchantment of the Seas will replace Grandeur in the port of Baltimore and offer year-round sailings, starting with her Spring 2021 season. Grandeur has served proudly since 1996, and we look forward to many more opportunities for our guests to enjoy Grandeur on future voyages with our Pullmantur family."
Grandeur of the Seas was built in 1996 as part of Royal Caribbean’s six-strong Vision class. Only two Vision-class ships remain in the fleet -- Rhapsody of the Seas and Vision of the Seas -- with Splendor of the Seas now operating as Marella Discovery and Legend of the Seas sailing as Marella Discovery 2 for U.K. line Marella Cruises.
