Radiance of the Seas Cruises

4.2
(from 439 verified customers)

Radiance of the Seas entered service in 2001 at 90,090 GT, was refurbished in 2016, and carries 2112 passengers. Radiance of the Seas’ most striking feature is the nearly three acres of exterior glass employed in its design - including glass elevators that span 12 decks giving ocean views. From every public space you are likely to see the seascape wherever you turn your head.

The ship is family-friendly, with large facilities for children and teens. It caters for large conferences, Wi-Fi ship wide, wheelchair access, and also couples wishing to tie the knot in the wedding chapel. Though large, the ship offers a good passenger space ratio. Décor throughout is warm and attractive and you’ll need good walking shoes to become familiar with the many public spaces.
