Navigation Systems for Luxury Cruise Ship

Royal Caribbean International’s newest cruise ship Brilliance of the Seas, which completed its maiden voyage this summer, is equipped with twin state-of-the-art integrated bridge systems supplied by Northrop Grumman's Sperry Marine business unit. The system provides the highest level of safe and accurate navigation for the giant cruise ship, which carries up to 2,500 passengers. In accordance with Royal Caribbean's two-bridge concept, Brilliance of the Seas has been fitted with a totally redundant package consisting of two independent integrated bridge systems (IBS) with all critical components duplicated.

The scope of equipment includes interswitched BridgeMaster E S-band and X-band radars, docking radar, Voyage Management System (VMS) with DNV type-approved ECDIS, docking system, weather station, doppler speed logs, fiber optic gyrocompass, adaptive autopilot, weather routing software, a complete GMDSS - compliant communications system, Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) and Automatic Identification System (AIS).

Sperry Marine is supplying integrated bridge systems for all Royal Caribbean new cruise ships and has completed a retrofit program to upgrade the IBS on all ships in the existing Royal Caribbean fleet.
