Royal Caribbean Stays Current with C-MAP CM-93/3 ECs
The C-MAP CM-93/3 global electronic chart database helps Royal Caribbean Intl. vessel operators to ensure smooth, safe sailing whether cruising the icy waters of Alaska, or the warm currents of the Southern Caribbean tropics or through the Panama Canal.
Arnolf Remo, captain of the Adventure of the Seas, said "Since early 2003 we have been using the C-MAP system on the Adventure of the Seas. This chart system has added a whole new interactive dimension to modern navigation, and therefore safer cruising. We are able to look ahead and have an indication of any underwater or overhead concerns to the vessel, as we enter our allowable safety depths and heights. Each chart area can also be customized by us to suit our needs in each different situation and location. The easy-to-use C-MAP charts help my Navigation Officers plan, execute and monitor our voyage plans in a safe and efficient manner to a level never seen before." "With our Sperry Voyage Management System and the C-MAP worldwide CM- 93 database all on one CD, each of our vessels has the perfect navigational instruments to provide our customers with the smooth sailing experience they expect," said Bob Granley, superintendent of Royal Caribbean International.
C-MAP's advanced RTU format is available free to all subscribers of CMAP's CM-93/3 commercial chart database. This format enables the navigator to download NTM corrections directly into the ECDIS/ECS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System/Electronic Charting System) quickly and securely from any location around the globe.
