Radiance Of The Seas

Radiance of the Seas made its debut in Australasia three seasons ago and has proven herself to be popular with Australians, especially with its family friendly programmes.

Radiance of the Seas is one of the newer and larger ships to grace our seas, although she is pretty mid-sized by global standards. Radiance of the Seas is a gas-turbine vessel, the first built for Royal Caribbean. This means the ship produces higher efficient speeds, and emissions to the air are much lower than diesel-powered engines. As the flagship of the Radiance class, her sisters include Jewel of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas.

For this 2014/15 cruise season down under, the Radiance of the Seas will again be joined by fleet-mate Voyager of the Seas and sail several trans-Tasman itineraries out of Sydney.

Royal Caribbean International allows guests to bring two 750ml bottles of wine per cabin on boarding day only. The wine can be consumed in guest rooms without charge or charged a $25 corkage fee when consumed in a public space. If more than two bottles are brought onboard, the additional bottles will be secured by ship personnel and returned just prior to the end of the cruise. Wine brought onboard on other days will be collected and returned on the final evening of the cruise.
