Royal Caribbean Cruises' Splendour of the Seas enters Piraeus Port on 6th June 2012

Splendour was built for Royal Caribbean International by Chantiers de l'Atlantique at their shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. Splendour was assigned the yard number "B31". The cruise ship was launched on June 17, 1995 by Lisa Wilhelmsen. The ship is registered to the port of Nassau, in the Bahamas. Maiden voyage for Splendour of the Seas commenced on March 31, 1996.
The gross tonnage of the Splendour is 69,130 and she has a displacement of 35,396 tonnes (34,837 long tons; 39,017 short tons). The cruise ship is 264 metres (866 ft) in length overall, with a beam of 32 metres (105 ft), a draft of 7.9 metres (26 ft) in summer conditions, and an air draft of 50 metres (160 ft). The propulsion system consists of five Wärtsilä Vasa 12V46B engines, which supply 11,700 kilowatts (15,700 hp) each to the ship's two, 5.8-metre (19 ft) diameter, fixed pitch propellers. Maximum speed is 24 knots (44 km/h; 28 mph), with the ship taking 1,892 metres (6,207 ft) and 6 minutes, 45 seconds to come to a full stop. Main propulsion is supplemented by two 1,500-kilowatt (2,000 hp) bow thrusters and a 1,728-kilowatt (2,317 hp) stern thruster. Two 10.8-square-metre (116 sq ft), 6.1-metre (20 ft) stabilizers are also fitted.
On 31 October 2011, Royal Caribbean and Spanish shipyard Navantia signed a contract for Splendour to receive structural modifications, maintenance to the propellers, propeller shafts and rudder, and interior upgrades, including new dining and public areas, 124 new balconies, and improvements to staterooms. The work was expected to take about five weeks to complete Visit our website http://www.pireaspiraeus.com More ships videos per category
