Radiance of the Seas recently underwent a renovation, featuring eight new dining options, cabin upgrade, and a new top deck TV screen. The Radiance of the Seas features some great cruise itineraries and is a decent ship that caters to both singles and families.
Cabins: The cabins on the Radiance of the Seas are comfortable. The balcony cabins and suites are very nice, and the inside cabins are nice for two people, though it begins to feel crowded with three or four people. All rooms feature an interactive TV, where you can order room service or purchase shore excursions.
Dining: With the addition of several for-fee restaurants, the quality of food at the Cascades Dining Room and the Windjammer Café has dropped. The food at the Cascades Dining Room is decent, but nothing to write home about. The Windjammer buffet, however, had some poor food. I would suggest that if you are going on a cruise specifically for food, the Radiance of the Seas is not your cruise ship.
Entertainment: The production shows on board the Radiance of the Seas are, unfortunately, some of the worst that I have seen. The dancing is basic, and the singing is not very good. However, the comedians and other entertainment that the ship brought in was excellent.
Activities: The Radiance of the Seas is not short on fun activities for all ages. Some good options are movies on the giant outdoor movie screen, mini-golf on the top deck, great massages at the spa, dancing at the nightclub or piano bar, playing tournaments at the casino, playing bingo, learning to dance, or participating in one of the game shows.
Itineraries: The Radiance of the Seas offers great itineraries, from Alaska to Australia and New Zealand. You will not be short of beautiful places to visit while on the Radiance of the Seas.
Overall: The Radiance of the Seas is a decent ship that offers some exciting itineraries. It would not be my first choice, but it will still make for a good vacation.
