NOTES — Founded in 1989, Renaissance Cruises featured eight ships that hosted between 684 and 710 passengers on trips to the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, the Greek Isles, the South Pacific and other exotic locales. In the late 1990s, Renaissance Cruises experienced financial crisis. Two weeks after the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, the company filed for bankruptcy. However, the eight cruise ships were sold to Oceania, Azamara and Princess Cruises, and are still sailed around the world. R Class- The pride of the fleet were the line’s eight brand new 684-passenger R-Class ships named R One, R Two, R Three, R Four, R Five, R Six, R Seven and R Eight. The ships in this class were built between 1998 and 2001. Following the bankruptcy of Renaissance Cruises, all of the vessels were chartered or sold to other cruise lines and continue to operate to this day.
