Radiance of the Seas arrived today at the port of Miami-Dade. Known as the first n 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. The vessel is designed to sail world itineraries to Alaska, Hawaii, the Panama Canal, Pacific Northwest and the Caribbean. At 90,090 tons, it is the fifth largest ship to call at the Port of Miami. Reinforcing Royal Caribbean's commitment to the environment, the vessel 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.
