Citing a price war it cannot win, a new report points to Royal Caribbean opting to end cruises that start and end in Marseilles, France in the coming years and instead, let its Western Mediterranean cruises sail from Barcelona.
Mer & Marine is reporting that Royal Caribbean will end cruises that leave from France next year, after attempting to restart cruises from France in 2011.
Royal Caribbean had opened an office in Paris back in 2011 but then laid off half the office in October 2012. Indications are that cruises leaving from Spain were performing better than cruises departing France.
Liberty of the Seas will finish out the scheduled cruises she has remaining in Marseilles.
