Excellent, stateroom attendant was also professional, polite, and punctional when we placed the "please make up room tagil the door" when we went for breakfast at 08:00 every morning.

Cabin 1092
Jun 2017
The cabin was beginning to show its age, but was well maintained and clean. The bathroom had a rather unpleasant odor, the mirror inside was beginning to lose its silver around the edges in places, and the shower fixtures were dated. My biggest complaint is about the noise from above. The room is located under the Windjammer/Izumi area and there were frequent noises of rolling heavy carts that sounded like a 747 taking off 50 feet above your house and other banging that sounded like two skeletons wrestling on a tin roof. We did get used to it and had no real trouble sleeping. Otherwise, we loved the room, the view and spaciousness it provided.

Cabin 1580
Jun 2017
We were in stateroom 1580, on deck 10, sort of mid aft third of the ship. This section was mostly suites. Our room was quite beautiful and spacious as staterooms go and is the most beautiful Jr. Suite we've stayed in so far. We understand the rooms were renovated just a few years ago, and it was a definite improvement. You also get double Crown and Anchor points for suites, and they are a bit more expensive than balconies, but cheaper than two cruises in a lower category cabin, and cruise tour days count, so we'll be jumping from Platinum to Emerald on this cruise! In addition to the king bed configuration, we had a sofa that was a sofa bed, an easy chair and ottoman with a side table, and an oval coffee table with two "dinner" chairs that were padded. There was ample floor space, several storage drawers and cabinets as well as a very spacious walk in closet with shelving and hooks. We tend to store our luggage under the bed to keep it out of the way, which also saves space. The bathroom was also spacious by cruise ship standards, especially for just the two of us, with a real tub, although it was somewhat elevated and would be a challenge for anyone over 5'11" to stand up in without hitting their head. Every time I washed my hair I'd hit my hands on the ceiling (I'm 5' 8"). The balcony was smaller than they typically are on bigger ships and a bit cramped for the furniture they provided which was two chairs and a bistro table and one thickly padded lounge chair. Still, we did sit out there for a bit the first day we sailed away, and we positioned the chairs toward the window on colder days for the same view, but without the wind chill. You could tell she needed a bit of cosmetic work (paint touch up, cleaning of the balcony glass partitions), but it didn't bother us. My husband had ordered the Happy Anniversary decorations for us and they were there to adorn our room when we entered. We were able to access our cabins at 1 pm and our luggage arrived around 2 pm. Our room attendant was lovely and attentive. As Jr. Suite and platinum guests, we had two plush terry bathrobes from RC to use for the duration of our cruise, which is a nice perk. If you can afford it, especially if you are in the loyalty program, we definitely recommend this room category.

Another Great Cruise! By: 71Bruin
We love this category on a longer cruise and it didn't disappoint. The storage in this type of cabin is fantastic and it includes a walk in closet! Our room was well located (we booked early for this cruise because of the demand for the itinerary so we got our choice of cabins), and easy one floor walk to the Windjammer and a short walk to the elevators. It had obviously been refurbished when Radiance went into dry dock for its overhaul. Nothing bad to say about it!

Pretty Good For Me By: Downunderrob
This Cabin is located on deck 10 and about under the Azumi Restaurant. Unless you take ear plugs do not consider it and the noise from Azumi is terrible Day and night it never seemed to stop. Avoid it as you pay a lot of money for noise In fact most suites on Radiance Of The Seas are on deck 10 but when asking were not as noisy as ours. The room was a good size with lots of space for clothes. Flat screen and kettle and coffee maker as well. It had a good bathroom with a tub - which i hate Hot water became an issue at certain times of the day. Late afternoon around 5 it would go to just warm. It had a table and 2 chairs on the balcony plus a lounge which i felt was over kill as you had no room to move.

Cabin 1098
Sep 2016
Great Room. This was my first Junior Suite experience (in fact - i got the "do you want to upgrade for less" call, originally having booked a balcony room). The extra space felt very luxurious. Extra big balcony. This room is listed as "obstructed view", disregard this. The amount that is obstructed is insignificant. From the bed or couch inside, or from the chairs outside there is no feel of obstruction whatsoever. I believe that they give the room this label because the maintenance cart that is used to clean the windows/balconies is stored directly next-to/in-front-of this balcony. It was a non-issue for me! Did not use coffee maker/tea pot, but liked having the extra amenities. Our cabin steward (rolly) was great! One note - there is no elevator/stairway bank at the aft of the ship. This means only that from this cabin location you walk to the center of the ship to use the stairs/elevator. Again, a non-issue for me but some other may not like the room location. In Alaska there was no feeling of waves or rocking ship-wide (compared to Caribbean).

Alaska is a must see! By: snowshh
Our junior suite was plenty big with lots of storage. I would have preferred a stateroom closer to the elevators, but when we booked this was the best available. There was plenty of closet space, although not a walk-in closet as we sometimes have. We were very pleased with our room. I had our stateroom attendant to remove all the drinks & snacks from our fridge so we would have room for our own items.

Overall the cabin was good. Great closet space and storage. The only thing I didn't like was the overhang from the Solarium above us obstructed our view somewhat. Lots of room and I love having a bathtub. Time for a refurb though. Good location for accessing Deck 11!

Birthday to remember By: KCandDC
Portside midship, close to the Centrum elevator. Coffee maker (although we did not use it). A few teabags, sugar and a couple of small milk pods but no coffee was provided. Other passengers apparently grabbed sachets from the Windjammer. Good sized balcony. Full bath. I use a walking stick because of a knee problem but I was able to step into the shower without any worries. I'm not too sure I would spend the extra money for the JS again though. We have booked a balcony for our next cruise.

Cabin 1602

Aft facing Junior Suite or the prime real estate cabins as some like to call them. Loved it!!! Very spacious with a walk-in robe and the added bonus of a bath. Our balcony was massive and we just loved using it. This was our second time with an aft facing cabin and cannot recommend this area of the ship highly enough. It is a bit of a hike down the corridor from the steps but that is no big deal. Very quiet down that end also and we never had a problem with noise above us from the area of Rita's Crabshack. Also quite private too.

Cabin 1076
Dec 2014
Our cabin, JS 1076 was well appointed and in a great location. It was midship past the stairs and elevators and was whisper quiet, in fact we didn't once hear any noise above us, or even out in the corridors. Perfect! The cabin provided plenty of room for 3, however, the sofa bed which was supposed to sleep 2 was a bit of a joke in that it only pulled out enough to produce a square sleeping area. My son is not tall, only about 5.5, but he needed to sleep diagonally so that his feet didn't hang off. It would be impossible for 2 people above 10 or 12 years to sleep comfortably on this sofa bed.

Cabin 1080
Oct 2014
The junior suite was spacious, and worked well for 3 older adults. It had a sofa bed ( made up to be very comfortable by our stateroom attendant.) The bathroom had a bath, and there was a walk-in wardrobe which doubled as a change room for us. It was all in very good condition, furniture seeming to be recently upholstered, and the carpet in good condition. We enjoyed it very much.

Great cabin on deck 10. There is a little noise from the Windjammer above at odd hours. Not really a problem. I did suggest a fairly cheap solution to much of the problem (trolley wheels on tiled floors). I wonder if anything will be done. We can recommend this cabin.

Cabin 1580
Feb 2013
We had two interconnecting Junior Suites - 1580 and 1582. Starboard Side. These were great. Clean, spacious and tidy. Loved the walk in closets - meant we could unpack everything and store our suitcases in there without any clutter in the rest of the room. The bathroom was large with a normal sized bath and shower combination which we loved. My youngest Daughter (15)actually had a bath twice on this cruise rather than a shower and quite enjoyed it - these were on calm days so there was no "wave" pool action in the bath. Our bar fridge kept everything nice and cold as well. The only thing I would mention is the full sized lounges in each of the staterooms need a damn good clean as all the piping and some of the cloth is yellowing from lots of use!

Christmas on Radiance Of The Seas By: Pearcedale Cruisers
We had cabin 1076 on deck 10. We loved the location and the high standard of service. The room was clean, spacious and the quality of finishings very good. the toilet seat was not the most comfortable but with the design of the plumbing there were no issues. Loved the bath tub and easy access to the bath, shower and wash basin. Wardrobe was more than ample and accomodated all our clothes easily. Overall I would hope to have this cabin again when we next travl on the Radiance Of The seas.

Honolulu to Sydney By: Fergo55
Our stateroom was great, plenty of closet space for 18 days of clothes, coffee maker and a kettle for making tea and a mini fridge. Plenty of room with a good size balcony, the view is a little obstructed by the overhang of the deck area above but this only a hindrance when taking photos. The bathroom is a good size with good cabinets and a shelf under the hand basin. A bath tub incorporating a shower which can be of concern for older people as it is quite high to step to get in but there is a well positioned grab rail to assist you. You will get some noise from the pool deck above when the crew are arranging the deck chairs early morning however it didn't bother us. The cabin is located close to the Centrum elevators and stairs or a short walk to the forward elevators. On this ship I would be happy to have this stateroom again.

America the Beautiful! By: cruzin_ga_gal
JS 1100 is a fantastic room. The closet was large enough for two and we had plenty of unused drawer space. The bathroom is plenty large and the bathtub/shower was nice without being cramped. The balcony was extra large and held two lounge chairs, two regular chairs and a table. We could have easily put more chairs and another table out there and still had room. Being on the fantail of the ship, you can see the full view instead of just one side. We chose this room specifically for this reason and it was wonderful going into and out of Hubbard Glacier.

1100 - great cabin! Had large walkin closet, bathtub, and extra large balcony. The balcony had 3 large lounge chairs, 2 regular chairs and a table. No noise from the Windjammer above. Also there was just one day when we noticed a tiny bit of suit from the engines. Great room! Loved the aft location. It really did feel like it held off the wind. Loved seeing both sides of the scenery at once even if it was from the back.

RADIANCE HAS SHINE By: 'tilnexttime
Junior Suite 1602 Deck Ten. Rear of the ship facing aft. Very spacious. Wonderful closet and storage. Comfortable bed. Ample bath/toilet facilty - well trimmed. Room furniture was showing wear but not objectionable. Pleasant decor. Balcony was spectacular size and view. Highly recommend the "end-of-the-world" experience facing astern. Bit of a hike from mid-ships but quiet as a church back there. Overall 5.0.

Cabin 1522
Dec 2010
1522 rocked and rolled in the high seas, but it was a fine location. Balcony was pretty unobstructed, and we had a bird's-eye view of the people on the bridge guiding the ship into dock. This cabin is very near the forward elevators and stairs, and it's a short walk up one flight and through the solarium to the pool area. Very quiet location.

What's not to like about a JS (#1044)...big walk in closet, big bathroom with a big tub, big balcony and lots of space to walk around since it's 50% larger than a regulat balcony cabin.

Nice quiet location, the trade off being a long walk (fine with us, work off that tasty food!). Loved the bathtub and the big closet, though I did not figure out until the night I was packing that there was a light above the doorway inside the closet. The huge balcony was a real treat, and the reason JS 1100 is so sought after.

Cabin 1548
Oct 2009
STATEROOM - We were in JS 1548. What a great room in a great location. We were close to the elevators, had plenty of room for the three of us to move around, and the pullout bed was great for my son. He loved it. The balcony was nice, especially being our first one. It would be hard to go back to an oceanview room. The only down point was the bathtub. Although it was nice to have one, it was set higher than the bathroom floor. I am 6' tall and literally my head touched the ceiling. You have to be careful stepping out as well. Since the tub floor is higher than the bathroom floor it is a big step and I almost fell my first time. This room is not for everyone for those reasons. The walk-in closet was nice too!

Sunshine in Alaska!!!!! By: vickiw0318
Great location - perfect for Alaska.  I'd heard comments that because the entrance to the cabin was the first off the Centrum that others kept running into others as they left the cabin.  We didn't have this problem. However, because of how the balcony juts out onto the hump, there's little privacy - not for this cabin - but for the grand suite next door.  If you are out at the rail, you will see your neighbors.

If you can book cabin 1100.....do it. You'll fall with the huge balcony, fabulous aft views, quietness and size of the room which is bigger than the other junior suites at no extra cost.
