Radiance of the Seas

The stunning icy vistas of Canada and Alaska or the sun-kissed shores of Hawaii – which destination will you choose onboard Royal Caribbean®'s first gas-turbine, low-emissions ship?

About Radiance of the Seas

Luxury and prestige are yours to enjoy onboard Radiance of the Seas®, from the pool on her top deck to the helipad on her bow. Spacious cabins and cosy retreats make this ship your home from home, with every day promising a new experience.

The dining onboard takes its cues from the finest in international cuisine, with Spanish and Italian treats rubbing shoulders with flavourful Japanese delights. Of course, there’s nothing stopping you enjoying a hearty grilled steak or a platter of hot dogs if you prefer.

We wouldn’t blame you for lounging your days away on the sunny decks, drink in hand and worries far away, but do make sure you check in on the entertainment options Radiance of the Seas has to offer. Broadway-style entertainment, with flashy musicals and catchy dance numbers, will set your evenings ablaze – or you can chance your arm in the Casino Royale. Prefer less glitz and more comfort for a few nights onboard? Enjoy a film at the outdoor theatre.

Families will also love this ship. Youngsters can play and make friends at the Adventure Club, teens get their own parties to attend, and you can all get together by the pool or in the funky neon lights of the video game arcade. If you’re the sportier type, take to the climbing wall or the running track – or maybe challenge a fellow passenger to a game of mini-golf. Plush indoor pool tables round off the experience, while pools of another kind – hot tubs – will allow you to unwind in bubbles and bliss.

However you choose to sail, rest assured Radiance of the Seas will make for a fun-filled and relaxing journey.
