Royal Caribbean International
Radiance of the Seas, Aurora Theater

The first of RCI’s six new Vantage-class cruise ships sailed from the shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, in March, 2001. All have performance spaces designed by FDA these 868-seat theatres are fully equipped with full-height fly-lofts 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 lounges are fitted out with movable orchestra lift wagons 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 systems are the result of several years of collaboration between Royal Caribbean International (RCI) and our design partners.
