The second of RCCL's six new Vantage-class cruise ships left the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, in July, 2002. This 900-seat theatre comes fully equipped with a full-height fly-loft and three orchestra lifts that create enormous flexibility backstage, and complement the luxurious interior accommodations designed by Wilson Butler Lodge, making this theatre both technically and esthetically sophisticated.

The main stage lounge is fitted out with a movable orchestra lift wagon that can transport the entire 14-piece RCCL Orchestra in and out of the pit as well as off-stage, almost instantly.  FDA's versatile stage lighting and rigging are the result of several years of collaboration between Royal Caribbean International (RCI) and our design partners.
