Radisson Seven Seas Cruises newest ship -- the 700-passenger Voyager -- has arrived from the Genoa-based T. Mariotti shipyard. The all-balcony-suite ship has already begun a series of what the company calls "shakedown" cruises -- aimed at working out the inevitable new-ship-bugs. Voyager will be christened March 31 in Monte Carlo -- that principality's "serene highness" Crown Prince Albert will be on hand -- and embarks on its inaugural April 1. The 49,000-ton ship will spend the spring and summer in Europe.
