Royal Olympic Cruises operates cruises in the Eastern Mediterranean. The company was formed in 1995 when the Greek owned cruise line Sun Line Cruises merged with its Greek rival, the Epirotiki Line. In 1997, ROC began the process of building two new vessels with a new monohull design that would allow the vessels a cruising speed of 27 knots (the Olympic Voyager and the Olympic Explorer), which made their debut in 2000 and 2002 respectively. In 2002 the company changed its name to Royal Olympia Cruises. Financial difficulties forced the company into the process of restructuring its operations. In the process, It has relinquished three ships: the Olympia Countess; and in 2004, the Olympia Voyager and Olympia Explorer were sold to the KfW Bank in March 2004.

Royal Caribbean International is operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, which also operates Celebrity Cruises and Royal Celebrity Tours. Royal Caribbean Cruise Line was founded by three Norwegian shipping companies in 1969-Anders Wilhemsen & Co., I.M. Skaugen & Co., and later Gotaas Larsen and a year later its first ship, Song of Norway, entered service. By 1986, several ships had been added to the fleet and the company had created its own exclusive destination resort Labadee on Hispaniola.

In 1988 Royal Caribbean and Admiral Cruises merged. Anders Wilhemsen & Co. bought out its original partners and gained full ownership of Royal Caribbean. Subsequently Wilhelmsen entered into a joint ownership agreement with an entity of the Pritzker family (owner of the Hyatt hotel chain) and the Ofer family who own a major shipping company. As the company grew, adding six more ships to its fleet of four ships over the next five years, it went public, trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol RCL in 1993. Four years and five more ships later, the company changed its name to Royal Caribbean International in 1997 to reflect its growing global itineraries. In the same year, Celebrity Cruises merged with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. where it operates as a separate brand. By late 2004, RCI’s vessels numbered 18. The company currently is building what will be the world's largest cruise ship, the new ultraVoyager class Freedom of the Seas, with the option for a second build in this category.
