Default Royal Caribbean International's Brilliance Of The Seas Deliv

MIAMI, July 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Royal Caribbean International today added to its fleet Brilliance of the Seas, the cruise line's second Radiance-class ship, in a ceremony in Eemshaven, Netherlands. The ship has been financed through a long-term lease. The 2,100-guest ship was built at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, and successfully completed sea trials in the North Sea.

Marilyn Ofer has been named godmother for Brilliance of the Seas and will bless the ship at the naming ceremony Saturday, July 13, in Harwich, England. The traditional event will take place at 6 p.m. in the ship's Pacifica Theater.

The ship will embark from Harwich July 15 on a seven-night maiden voyage to the Norwegian fjords. That will be followed by a series of four 12-night cruises from Harwich to the British Isles, Norwegian fjords, and Scandinavia and Russia.

Brilliance of the Seas and her 90,090-ton sister ship Radiance of the Seas are as large as any cruise ships ever constructed at Meyer Werft. The Radiance-class vessels have a sleek mega-yacht profile and an abundance of glass -- nearly three acres of exterior glass with panoramic elevators facing the sea and almost 600 balcony staterooms.

The ship features vibration-free, General Electric gas turbine engines, which represent the cruise industry's newest technology for protecting the environment.

Among the unique features is a pair of ultra-high-tech, self-leveling pool tables in the Bombay Billiards Club.

For Royal Caribbean's typically active guests, the recreational amenities include a rock-climbing wall, jogging track, basketball and volleyball court, golf simulator and nine-hole miniature golf course, and a large gym with treadmills facing the sea.

Five dining venues allow guests to enjoy Chops Grill steakhouse, Portofino Italian restaurant, Minstrels main dining room, or the casual Windjammer Cafe and Seaview Cafe. Fresh pizza, cappuccino or pastries can be found in Books Books & Coffee.

Royal Caribbean International is a global cruise brand currently with 15 ships in service and four more under construction or on firm order. For additional information about the cruise line, please visit the company's Internet web site at www.royalcaribbean.com or www.rclinvestor.com .

I cannot wait to sail on the Brilliance and the Radiance next year, I have them both booked! :-) From all the pictures I've seen, they look absolutely fantastic. I love all that glass and natural daylight makes a big difference in a ship's overall mood. I need to speed up the countdown clocks! Susie
