Radiance of the Seas Cabins

Of the 1,071 cabins, 825 are outside and 577 of those have balconies. Only Oasis and Allure have a higher proportion of balcony accommodations.

Good middle-of-the-road choices in a balcony cabin are Categories E1, E2, and E3 measuring 179 square feet with a 41-square-foot balcony (though still on the small end of industry average). These are situated on Decks 7, 8, 9 and 10, with the ones on Deck 10 closest to the pools and other outdoor amenities.

Family cabins accommodate six people with twin beds that convert to a queen and additional bunk beds, plus a sofa bed in a separate area.

All cabins have wireless internet access and Internet ports, as well as interactive flat-screen TV's, complete with interactive technology that allows passengers to do things like order room service or book a shore excursion from their cabin (added during the 2011 refurb).

During the 2011 dry-dock, Radiance received 12 new accommodations -- the new cabins were constructed in spaces formerly used for room service staging and in former private dining areas. They include one new family suite, five interior and six exterior cabins.

The most lavish accommodation is the Royal Suite -- a palatial 1,034-square-foot suite with a 172-square-foot balcony and such amenities as a baby grand piano; wet bar; entertainment center with 42-inch flat screen TV, stereo and VCR; and bath with whirlpool, bidet and steam shower.

Wheelchair-accessible cabins are available in a variety of categories.

Our interior cabin was clean and comfortable, but was missing vital information including the room service menu. The shower is dreadful and needs to be angled just right to stop it flooding the bathroom. There was often a bad sewerage smell coming ... Read more
