Radiance of the Seas Review


Cruise Ship Overview

As the first of five Radiance-class ships launched in 2001, Radiance of the Seas was also one of the first in the Royal Caribbean fleet to receive major renovations in 2012. In addition to new staterooms, upgrades include an outdoor movie screen poolside, a pub, an updated wine bar, the casual Park Café, Asian, Italian, and Brazilian specialty restaurants, a Mexican restaurant, digital signage, lounges for elite past passengers, and a new nursery.

Considered by many people to be the most beautiful vessels in the Royal Caribbean fleet, Radiance-class ships are large but sleek and swift, with sun-filled interiors and panoramic elevators that span 10 decks along the ships' exteriors.

High-energy and glamorous spaces are abundant throughout these sister ships. From the rock-climbing wall, children's pool with waterslide, and golf area to the columned dining room, sweeping staircases, and the tropical garden of the solarium, these ships hold appeal for a wide cross section of interests and tastes.

The ships are packed with multiple dining venues, including the casual Windjammer, with its indoor and outdoor seating, and the Latte-Tudes patisserie, offering specialty coffees, pastries, and ice cream treats.
