568 Radiance of the seas


Royal Caribbean's Radiance of the Seas was launched in 2000 from the Meyer Weft shipyard in Germany. Considered the flag ships of the Radiance Class, which includes the Jewel of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas, the Radiance of the Seas was the first of this class built for Royal Caribbean and is a gas-turbine vessel.

Considered faster than most the ship maneuvers with the combination of the Azipod propulsion system, powerful bow thrusters, and a dynamic positioning system. The ship is economically efficient through the design of a power plant consisting of two gas turbines and one steam turbine. The waste heat from each gas turbine is fed through a heat recovery steam generator, thus using the steam to power the steam turbine. Once electricity is generated from this power plant it then powers the external propulsion pods and thrusters.
