Royal Caribbean International
Royal Caribbean International is operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, which also operates Celebrity Cruises and Royal Celebrity Tours. In 1988 Royal Caribbean and Admiral Cruises merged. It went public, trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol RCL in 1993. 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. Today they include Pullmantur, Azamara Cruises and CDF Croisieres de France. The company has a combined total of 35 ships in service and seven under construction.

Holland American Line
Holland America was founded in 1873 as the Netherlands-America Steamship Company (NASM), a shipping and passenger line. Because it provided service to the Americas, it became known as Holland America Line. The company's first ocean liner was the original Rotterdam, which sailed its maiden voyage from the Netherlands to New York City on October 15, 1872-a crossing that took 15 days. With the growing preference of the public for jet travel to Europe, HAL suspended in 1971 its trans-Atlantic passenger trade and turned to offering cruise vacations full time. It introduced two radically designed vessels-the ‘new’ Nieuw Amsterdam and Noordam-in the 1980s, which allowed for more space for leisure-cruising activities. HAL, along with Seattle-based Westours and Windstar Cruises, was acquired by Carnival Corporation in 1997.
