 Sovereign of the Seas

Sovereign of the Seas has been retired and is no longer in service

The very first purpose-built cruise super liner, the then revolutionary Sovereign of the Seas entered service in 1988. She has served Royal Caribbean well for over 13 years, and now sails to the Bahamas from Port Canaveral, year-round.
