Regal Empress Finally Sold

May 23, 2003

Regal Empress, undergoing a second effort to be sold at auction, received a bid – and was won – by Imperial Majesty in Tampa today. The ship was sold for $1.75 million. The new owners say they’ll keep the name and Regal Empress will sail two-night itineraries between Ft. Lauderdale and Nassau.
Last week, the ship went up for auction with a $2 million minimum bid and had no takers. This time there was no
set minimum.
