Default Radiance class ships to get diesel generator

All four Radiance class ships with gas turbine propulsion will get a diesel generator in order to cut down costs for the gas fuel that has skyrocketed during the last few years. Each ship will take about 3 weeks for the conversion....lots of lost revenue!!

Jewel got hers last October, When Serenade leaves then Radiance will go in to drydock (also at Freeport) from Mar 29-April 19 and Brilliance will follow from April 27 to May 15

The Celebrity fleet: Millenium and Constellation got theirs already at Sobrena last year, Summit will most likely go also to Sobrena from April 11-April 28 , and Infinity will go to Freeport from Nov 11-Dec 2

Thanks so much. I'd hate to think we made all the arrangements and then find out she wasn't sialing! From all the pictures and You Tube we've seen everything looks lovely. We've done Celebrity before which is a lot more understated.
