Radiance of the Seas

Radiance of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International

With the stretches of glass ou will be sure to take in the stunning views of the open sea from Radiance of the Seas. With open spaces everywhere and 12 glamorous decks they are just waiting to be explored.

It’s clear to see why this ship is so popular - half of the external structure is glass, including the nine storey central atrium, which gives this beautiful ship its wow factor from the moment that passengers step aboard. The name-sake of the Radiance class of Royal Caribbean’s sizeable fleet, this ocean liner has recently benefited from a multi-million pound refurbishment to ensure that its facilities and finish match those found on any of its sister ships.

Destinations and itineraries

This ship tours the other side of the world beginning with seven night Alaskan cruise between Anchorage and Vancouver until the beginning of September when the ship starts its journey across the pacific to Australasia. The first stage is a ten night Hawaii cruise making three ports of call, Hilo, Kona, Lahaina, Nawiliwili and finally Honolulu.

From September 23, the Radiance of the Seas sets off on a Transpacific Cruise that makes seven ports of call and lasts for 17 nights on board. After five days at sea, the ship moors at Papeete in Tahiti, home of the Gaugin Museum, where the French painter immortalised the landscapes that visitors can still see today. Some of the islands that make up French Polynesia are visited next, Bora Bora and Moorea. A further four days at sea follow, including a day lost as the ship crosses the International Date Line. Eventually the ship arrives at Wellington in New Zealand, followed by Picton, famed for its Marlborough vineyards before moving onto Sydney.

Until November the Radiance of the Seas tours the coastline of Australia and New Zealand on cruises lasting between nine and 17 nights. The ship stays in the southern hemisphere until May on South Pacific cruises or tours of Australia including a circumnavigation between Perth and Sydney, along the Great Barrier Reef.
