Radiance of the Seas is a 90,090 ton, 2,500 passenger vessel that was the first of this class of ship for Royal Caribbean. The other members of this class are Brilliance of the Seas, the Jewel of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas. Each is a shimmering example of Royal Caribbean’s unique styling and extensive list of available choices on board whether it be in the area of dining, activities, or cabin selection.
Radiance of the Seas is by current measurements a more mid sized ship. Many types of passengers will be very pleased they selected this ship as she truly has activities and an ambiance on board that will appeal to a variety of travelers, whether they are singles, passengers on a family vacation, or couples and participants in group travel.
The vessel has a great deal of active life style options to offer to all on board as well as making their cruising experience a truly luxurious one. The glass walls and glass elevators of the cruise ship provide spectacular views of the horizon and the seas from any part of the ship to visitors. Radiance of the Seas is decorated with exquisite statuettes and art pieces throughout. In the center atrium there is the option to enjoy live music that changes in style daily. Among the now signatures features on any Royal Caribbean cruise ship is the 33-foot high rock-climbing wall, but there is also a pool along with water slides for kids, hot tub and a heated pool where kids and adults can have ample fun while on the Radiance of the Seas.
The list of optional activities is long and you will want to visit each at least once during your stay. There is a casino, movie theatre, a video arcade room, disco open to whenever, a sports bar for those who want to stay in touch with the sports world, a champagne bar, custom coffee bar, late night karaoke bar and many such leisure areas throughout the ship. Its full service spa includes an excellent exercise room with modern exercising equipment.
There are two computerized self leveling pool tables, a 9-hole miniature golf course, ping pong tables, a basketball court, a great golf simulator, shuffleboard and a jogging track as other main attractions of the ship as well.
Various professional entertainers perform at different times of the day and the night in the theatre, along with large Las Vegas type review shows that play regularly. And for those who are less physical by nature, the ship also has backgammon and chess tables, along with a fantastic library for those who wish to enjoy a good book during their cruise. And, of course, there is a lot of deck space to simply sit in a deck chair, relax, and enjoy doing nothing at all.
The restaurants of the vessel can be chosen according to formal dining, snacking and casual dining as per the need and the mood. There are two optional dining restaurants on board, one offering outstanding Italian cuisine and the other is a great steak house. Cascades, the ship’s main dining room, spans two decks. The focal point is a cascading waterfall. Cascades offers the classic seating options at dinner, early and late, with assigned tablemates, otherwise the restaurant operates under an open seating policy for breakfast and lunch. Tables for two are at a premium on most cruise itineraries.
Staterooms on Radiance of the Seas cover classifications ranging from the basic inside cabins to the way over the top Grand Suites complete with a grand piano.
Standard cabins (Balconies, Oceanview, Inside) feature the usual layout of twin beds that convert into a queen, a dressing table, and separate seating area. The bathrooms are comfortably sized and are equipped with showers only. There are two different types of Family Suites, one with a living room and two bedrooms, the other with one large room, with bed and sofa, and a small bedroom. If a Suite is your selection, not only do you get more room, you also receive additional amenities such as luxurious upgraded bath products, whirlpool tubs, CD players, and access to the Concierge Lounge.
One interesting good value in between a standard Verandah and full fledged Suite is the Junior Suite. For a relatively small increase in your cruise rate over a standard Balcony cabin price, you get much more space, both inside and on the veranda, and a more expansive bathroom with tub and shower. However, guests of the Junior Suite do not qualify for any other official suite amenities such as upgraded toiletries, or use of the concierge service.
In all cabins, RCTV, the cruise line’s interactive television, offers a first rate range of channels. There are plenty of movies offered for free and pay-per-view – including a daily classic selection. Also, an in room reservations system that can book everything from room service to shore excursions is available, though you may want to make important reservations over the phone directly. There’s also a hair dryer, mini safe, and room service is available around the clock in every cabin.
Undoubtedly, the Radiance of the Seas cruise ship is one that provides the enriched environment and enjoyment that makes cruising a worthwhile experience.
