Radiance of the Seas

Radiance of the Seas, sister ship to Jewel of the Seas, is one of Royal Caribbean's stunning Vision class ships. The stunning super-liner, carries around 2,400 passengers and is wrapped in glass from every direction, ensuring fabulous panoramic views throughout the ship.

The Radiance of the Seas was built with environmentally sensitive world heritage sites in mind such as Alaska- including the use of gas turbines as opposed to diesel engines, making the Jewel of the Seas more environmentally friendly and much quieter. This makes Radiance of the Seas the ideal ship to visit Alaska's coastline, as she does each summer, along with the beautiful Island if Hawaii in spring.

Radiance of the Seas is a fantastic ship, filled with fantastic dining venues, comfortable lounge bars and wonderful entertainment facilities. From the kids' club to the Broadway-style shows, there is something for everyone onboard.

Customer reviews for Radiance of the Seas

Room as not what we expected with a full length window. The ship was over crowded. Had an extra day at sea instead of a port of call due to a 2 hour delay leaving, why? Excursion services were unhelpful unless your booking a trip with them. Dining room food was not as good as the buffet restaurant, it seemed to be sitting around too long. The formal night was no different to any other night. All in all couldn't wait to get off the ship.

Ship is very nice but abit dated needs a complete refurbishment

Food very good although limited choice in the dining restaurant. First sitting was too early at 5.30 so went for 2nd sitting when we got on board. Really too late for me to eat but they had a waiting list for any time dining. Had problems with bathroom especially the shower. Kept flooding the bathroom. Husband had to tighten shower holder as was loose. Had to hand hold shower head to stop my hair getting wet at every shower. Toilet wouldn't flush but dealt with quickly. Staff were excellent across the board. Excursions too expensive so didn't book any. Not a wide enough variety of drinks packages. It was all or nothing. Didn't book one. On boarding the ship we had to run the gamut of staff trying to sell drinks, restaurants, the spa etc. My comparison is with Egypt and vendors harassing you to buy. We were put off as were other guests. t would have been nice for the cruise company to put on lectures in the theatre. Entertainment was reasonable. Overall enjoyed the cruise
