Royal Caribbean International's Radiance of the Seas Arrives in Los Angeles

Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from Royal Caribbean International

    MIAMI, April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Radiance of the
 Seas will arrive at the port of Los Angeles, San Pedro, on Saturday, April 21
 at 7:00 a.m., and claim her place in the history books as the first cruise
 ship where guests will be able to play billiards at sea. The first in the
 Radiance-class series, the 2,100-guest ship boasts more glass than any other
 Royal Caribbean ship, including all-glass elevators facing the sea. In
 addition to internet ports available in every stateroom, Radiance of the Seas
 is the first cruise ship to provide internet access in every crew cabin. A new
 generation world cruiser, Radiance of the Seas is designed to sail world
 itineraries to Alaska, Hawaii, the Panama Canal, Pacific Northwest and the
 Caribbean. At 90,090 tons, she is the fifth largest ship to call at the Port
 of Miami. Radiance of Seas reinforces Royal Caribbean International's
 commitment to the environment. She is the first ship in the Royal Caribbean
 fleet with vibration-free, smokeless GE gas turbine engines, which represent
 the cruise industry's newest technology for protecting the environment, and
 will result in an 80 to 98 percent reduction in exhaust emissions, as well as
 a reduction in oily waste.
     "With her sleek, mega-yacht exterior, an abundance of windows, and all-
 glass elevators facing the sea, Radiance of the Seas gives a remarkable sense
 of openness, connecting guests to the ocean," said Jack Williams, president,
 Royal Caribbean International. "With every class of ship, we are able to
 benefit from what came before.  There's continuous improvement and a natural
 progression of design work and creativity."
     The variety and scope of entertainment, activity and dining options on
 this vessel are remarkable. Rock-climbing, basketball, volleyball and
 miniature golf are available, along with a jogging track, golf simulator and
 large gym with treadmills facing the sea. Guests can choose to spend time in
 the Art Nouveau Casino Royale, enjoy colorful Vegas-style shows in the three-
 story Aurora Theater, or relax in comfortable armchairs in several intimate
 spaces and lounges with incredible views of the sea such as Jakarta Lounge and
 Singapore's Sling.  Five dining venues allow guests the choice of Chops Grille
 steakhouse, Portofino Italian restaurant, the two-story main dining room,
 Cascades, or the casual dining options of Windjammer Cafe or Seaview Cafe.
 Freshly made pizza, cappuccino or pastries can be found in Books Books &
 Coffee.

 service and six under construction or on firm order.  For additional
