First debuting in 2001, Royal Caribbean’s Radiance of the Seas has long been a favourite among the cruising world with its light and bright interiors thanks to the ship’s glass-filled exterior. Regular refurbishments have meant that the ship has continued to draw back loyal fans as well as win new ones. With plenty of things to do, as well as areas to simply sit back and relax, you know you’ll have a great time on board Radiance of the Seas!
You certainly won’t find yourself bored on board with plenty of activities for a wide range of ages. Try something new with a jewellery making or scrap booking class, learn a language or experience the art of wine tasting. If you’re a keen foodie, then take a culinary class with seasoned chefs and take your cooking skills to the next level. You can also spend your time browsing and bidding on original artworks and prints or simply partake in an art tour, seminar or special event as part of the Art on Royal enrichment program.
Did you know that Royal Caribbean has its own in-house production company that brings together world-class performers with awe-inspiring original shows? You’re bound to find something you’ll love with their genres ranging from contemporary dance and aerial acrobatics to headline musical acts and more! Why not make your trip even more relaxing with a trip to the Spa and Fitness Centre? Here you can indulge in luxurious treatments, medi-spa services and a full-service salon where relaxation is the goal. If you feel less like relaxing and more like moving then try out a dance class with skilled instructors, play some mini golf on the open sea or challenge yourself with climbing a rock wall.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with an array of dining options; from a far east feast at Izumi, where you’ll find fresh sushi and sashimi, to the hand-cut steaks at the hallmark Royal Caribbean restaurant, Chops Grille. At Giovanni’s Table you’ll find a casual Italian trattoria with both indoor and al fresco seating that provides rustic dishes with a contemporary twist, while Park Café offers deli delights including made-to-order salads, paninis and freshly prepared sandwiches.
Enjoy a VIP dining experience with Chef’s Table – an exclusive and intimate gourmet dinner where you’ll find yourself spoiled rotten with an unforgettable five-course, upgraded menu and magical wine pairing. Located in private spots around the ship you won’t only find yourself indulging, but also learning as the Chef de Cuisine prepares and presents each course while explaining their cooking techniques, ingredients and flavours.
If you’re after an after-dinner drink or somewhere to soak up happy hour, there’s plenty on board Radiance of the Seas to please! Take in some live piano as you enjoy a cocktail (and a sing-along) in the Schooner Bar while the exclusive Diamond Club provides a comfortable lounge to relax in with concierge access and complimentary evening drinks. The English Pub provides a casual spot to meet up with mates for a pint, UK-inspired cocktail, scotch or whiskey with its authentic British racing décor immersing you in a different world. Enhance your time by the pool with a frozen daiquiri from the Pool Bar or grab a drink at the Solarium Bar.
Every cruise ship needs a pool and Radiance of the Seas has two pool areas! Explore the expanded main pool deck that includes complimentary loungers, live music and room to splash about. Continue relaxing in the pool while watching a newly released film or major sporting event at night on the 20.4 metre outdoor movie screen. The Solarium provides an adult-only, indoor retreat where whirlpools, comfortable spots in the sunshine and refreshing water mist await.
