102 Reviews
Royal Caribbean

Get up close and personal with spectacular vistas on Radiance of the Seas. This vessel is ready to take you on an adventure like no other and has been specially designed for Alaskan adventure- from Inside Passage to Glacier Bay National Park. Skim through the Last Frontier and enjoy the view of glaciers or spend some time whale watching onboard or, if you're boarding in the South Pacific, enjoy the natural views and splendor of the area as your ship sails from Australia to Bali, New Zealand, and beyond. Adventure is always close at hand on this vessel, so slip into the adults-only Solarium and enjoy the views as you relax in a steamy whirlpool, or sign up for one of the many onboard activities, including culinary classes, folding artistry, guest lectures and more.

While there are plenty of adventures to be had at the port, the journey to your destination is half the fun as well! Get into the cruising mood and attend one of the spectacular onboard shows, like the Royal Caribbean original production, Piano Man, a rousing musical adventure that will transport you through the decades. And don't forget about the available nightlife activities! From Mystery Dinner theater to salsa dancing, club DJs, a 70s disco party, and more, there's always something fun happening on this vessel!
