Royal Caribbean Group has announced that they have completed the sale of their Azamara cruise line to Sycamore Partners for $201 million.

Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Group. “In fact, as we are inking this deal today, Azamara already has added a fourth ship to their fleet. I am confident that the brand’s success and growth trajectory will continue under the stewardship of Sycamore.”
