Radiance of the Seas Overview

Between October and March each year Radiance of the Seas sails out of Sydney to the Great Barrier Reef, New Zealand, the South Pacific, and Tasmania. In February/March 2018 She circumnavigates Australia and New Zealand, calling at all the mainland capitals, and with a stop at Bali on the way. Between May and August each year Radiance of the Seas sails the Alaskan fjords over 7 nights, each way between Seward (the port for Anchorage) and Vancouver. Each April and September Radiance crosses the Pacific via Hawaii, over about 30 nights, 16 of these being ‘sea days’. This is a family-friendly ship: babies (six to 17 months) and toddlers (18-36 months) have a dedicated nursery, so children can be left with trained professionals for +/- US$8 per hour. Radiance of the Seas entered service in 2001 at 90,090 GT, was refurbished in 2016, and carries 2112 passengers.

Accommodation

Staterooms come in four main categories and 19 grades, with variations based on guests’ needs: Suite/Deluxe Staterooms, Balcony Staterooms, Outside Staterooms and Interior Staterooms. When selecting accommodation consider the view, the level of privacy, and location near to or far from activity areas. All staterooms come with private bathroom, vanity area, hair dryer, interactive TV and phone. Many cabins are family-friendly with up to four additional bunk beds, and interconnecting rooms. There are no single cabins, and many are wheelchair-accessible. In-cabin service and dining is available 24-hours.

Food and Dining

For the Main Dining Room, spread over two levels, select from three dining choices before cruising: fixed seating at the same table nightly, at either early or late sitting; open-seated My Time Dining (with pre-paid gratuities) at a flexible time; and early sitting My Family Time Dining that allows children aged 3 to 11 years to leave for their Adventure Ocean kids club. Menus feature healthy, vegetarian and kosher options. Special dietary needs can be catered for by giving advanced notice. Menus change daily throughout the cruise. Evening dress is casual or smart casual. Expect one to three formal evenings in the Main Dining Room during your cruise. Other complimentary eating options include buffet-style Windjammers Café, Park Café, and 24-hour room service.

Entertainment

A signature feature of RCI vessels is a Broadway-style production in the Main Theatre. A second entertainment centre is the Colony Club, with its music, dancing, comedy and cabaret shows. Try your hand at gaming in Casino Royale. Live music features around the pool, in the main dining room, and in many lounges, bars and specialty venues. There are always parties and parades to join. Alternatively, just stroll around and shop duty-free, or for a quiet time retire to the Library/Card Room or Internet Café.
