SovereignThe UK-based Ocean Liner Society  has this year arranged ti take its annual cruise on Pullmantur Cruises’ 73,192-ton Sovereign, sailing from Barcelona on 24th September. As Sovereign of the Seas, she was the world’s largest cruise ship when she entered service in 1988, exceeding both the 70,202-ton Norway and the 66,451-ton (at the time) Queen Elizabeth 2.

Several Ocean Liner Society group cruises have taken place on Pullmantur ships in the past. It is now over a decade since the Society first cruised in Pullmantur’s 39,241-ton Oceanic, once Home Lines’ flagship, and the 46,087-ton Sky Wonder, which had been built as the Sitmar Line flagship Fairsky. In more recent years, the Society has chosen Pullmantur associate Croisières de France, cruising in its 37,301-ton Bleu de France (now Saga Sapphire) in 2010, and the 46,811-ton Horizon in 2012.

For 2016, it is back to Pullmantur’s Spanish-based fleet, with a 7-night cruise from Barcelona on the Sovereign. Sailing on Saturday, September 24, 2016, this year’s cruise will call at Olbia, Civitavecchia, Livorno and Toulon before returning to Barcelona on October 1.
