MONARCH OF THE SEAS
Chantiers de I'Atlantique
Circle 32 on Reader Service Card
With the title of the world's larg- est passenger cruise ship, the 75,000- ton luxury megaliner Monarch of the Seas, emerged last year from the
St. Nazaire, France, shipyard of
Chantiers de I'Atlantique. Her sis- ter, the Majesty of the Seas, is set to make her debut next month.
Built for Royal Caribbean Cruise
Line, the Monarch is 880 feet long and has a maximum passenger ca- pacity of 2,766, with 1,177 cabins, 732 of which are outside units and 445 inside units. Included in the total are 12 luxurious suites and 50 deluxe cabins with a balcony, all of which are located on the Bridge
Containing more than 14,000 tons of steel (twice that of the Eiffel
Tower) and more than 170 feet high (the same height as the Statute of
Liberty), the Monarch of the Seas sets passenger ship interior design standards.
For example, the Centrum, the ship's central meeting place from which most of its public spaces radi- ate was designed by Norwegian Nj al
Eide, whose Oslo-based firm spe- cializes in cruise vessel interiors.
The centrum spans five decks, fea- turing curved staircases, glass- walled elevators and a lively plaza.
At the base of the glass-walled el- evators lie three pools of dancing water, an elegant piano platform and raised plaza linked by a parade stair. Forward of this area, the
Centrum flows into the photo gal- lery with a stepped level fountain.
The propulsion machinery on the
Monarch of the Seas, built in Saint-
Nazaire, France by Chantiers de
I'Atlantique, GEC Alsthom, for Royal
Caribbean Cruise Ltd. (RCCL) is of
SEMT Pielstick design and manu- facture, comprising four 9 PC20L400 medium-speed engines, able to op- erate on 700 est heavy fuel oil.
Each 9 PC20L engine is rated at 5,460 kw at 475 rpm, providing a total output of 21,840 kw on two shafts. The drive is through two
Lohmann + Stolterfoht twin input/ single output gearboxes.
The main feature of the installa- tion is the elastic suspension of the 92-ton Pielstick engine. The four 9
PC20Ls are separately secured on a frame, also used as the engine lubri- cating oil recovery sump (dry dump), from which the oil returns to main lubricating oil tank. The frame is fitted on the ship's foundation blocks by means of 22 rubber resilient pads.

Stand No. 1032
NYLANDS MARINE SERVICE A.S. has for many years been recognized as a leading manufacturer of high quality spares for the most popular range of slow speed marine diesels.
Recently, NYLANDS MARINE SERVICE A.S. expanded its product spectrum by introducing the
Fuel Ignition Analyser, «FIA». By defining the ignition and combustion properties of the fuel, the user will be able to decide how and when to use a specific bunker load and thereby optimize fuel and maintenance cost.
Another new product for the company is the propeller shaft seals SPLITEX and MONEX which have shown themselves to be competitive in use on board with regard both to price and reliability. The Nylands seals have so far shown no sign of oil leakage.
