Radisson Names New Vessel


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Radisson Seven Seas Cruises said its 490-passenger vessel slated to be introduced next August will be named Seven Seas Navigator.

The vessel is under construction at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy.

Officials said the name was inspired by the line's past passengers and will be carried through to the series of luxury ships expected to follow the Seven Seas Navigator.

Radisson previously announced plans to add one ship a year for the next five years.

The vessel is scheduled to debut in the Mediterranean on Aug. 16 and will be introduced with a series of seven- to 11-night cruises.

The inaugural sailing will be an 11-night Nice-to-Venice itinerary that includes Monte Carlo; Barcelona, Spain; several ports in Italy; Naxos and Corfu, Greece, and Dubrovnik and Split, Croatia. Other itineraries in 1999 include a 10-night Venice to Istanbul sailing and a Black Sea cruise.

On Oct. 9 it will operate a nine-day transatlantic crossing from Madeira to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., before beginning a 50-night circumnavigation of South America.

The ship will offer a 17-night millennium cruise, from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles, which includes a transit of the Panama Canal and visits to Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Columbia and Costa Rica.
