SOVEREIGN OF THE SEAS
Chantiers de I'Atlantique
With her anticipated delivery to
Royal Caribbean Cruise Line on De- cember 23, the 74,000-grt luxury lin- er Sovereign of the Seas will become the world's largest cruise ship.
Built by Alsthom's Chantiers de
I'Atlantique shipyard in St. Nazaire,
France, the Sovereign is 874 feet long, 106 feet wide and has a draft of 25 feet. She will be able to carry more than 2,600 passengers on 14 decks in her 722 outside and 416 inside staterooms, and will be com- plemented by a crew of 750 officers, deck, engine and international hotel personnel.
Powered by four nine-cylinder 7,425-hp Pielstick diesel engines, she is able to obtain speeds of more than 21 knots. The Sovereign fea- tures two 1,500-hp KaMeWa bow- thrusters and Willi Becker rudders for maneuverability. Sperry stabi- lizers, a Vibrachoc main engine si- lencer and Rockment cabin parti- tioning and bulkheads add to pas- senger and crew comfort.
The liner features a wide array of technologically advanced electronic equipment and systems, including: a
Racal Decca MNS 2000 integrated nautical system; Taiyo TF 733 fac- simile receiver; Atlas radars; An- schuetz gyrocompass, autopilot and magnetic compass; Norcontrol en- gine room automation; KaMeWa propulsion machinery remote con- trol; and Flakt Marine heating/air conditioning plants.
The ship's service electrical power is supplied by six Wartsila auxiliary generators, producing 13,000 watts.
Other equipment featured will in- clude Alfa-Laval evaporator and lube/fuel oil centrifugal separator
December, 1987 systems and an EVAC sewage sys- tem.
A unique feature of the new luxu- ry liner is the Centrum, a central lobby area spanning a height of five decks. The Centrum is highlighted by glass-wall elevators, sweeping staircases, fountains and plants.
The Centrum connects many of the ship's public rooms, including the shopping area, lounges, bars, confer- ence center and cafe.
In all, the Sovereign offers two 650-passenger restaurants, six lounges, 16 shops, one casino and two pools.
