Aboard Radiance of the Seas, the Main Dining Room is a stunning two-level restaurant which has a sophisticated ambiance and features a grand staircase.

For breakfast and lunch, you can sit anywhere you like in the Main Dining Room. Other complimentary dining venues include the ever-popular Windjammer Cafe – a buffet-style restaurant that is open at many times during the day. Radiance of the Seas cruises promise other Royal Caribbean favourites too, such as the Italian trattoria Giovanni’s Table, Japanese restaurant Izumi, which features a la carte sushi selections, and the Chef’s Table private dining experience, in which five delectable courses are matched with the finest international wines. Bars include the Quill & Compass, a traditional English-style pub; the Colony Club, with self-levelling pool tables; the intimate and classy Champagne Bar; the Schooner Bar and more.
Like all Royal Caribbean cruises, there’s no shortage of things to do aboard Radiance of the Seas. If you’re up for some high adventure, the rock-climbing wall beckons. Or, if golf is more your kind of sport, the mini-golf course is there for when you feel like a game. Fancy browsing through the latest fashion, jewellery, accessories or beauty products by premium designer brands? You can get your retail fix at the Royal Shops. Or, if you want to cosy up with a good book, the quiet Library has the feel of a classic English study. Whether you like action or your favourite activity is reclining on a deck chair by the pool, there’s plenty to keep enthralled onboard.
Kids and families
A Radiance of the Seas cruise is something the whole family can enjoy, with the award-winning Adventure Ocean youth program and teen program. Activities start with Royal Babies and Royal Tots, the two programs for the youngest cruisers, hosted by trained youth staff. Next up is Aquanauts, where children aged 3 to 5 years will find themselves captivated by the fun science program. The 6- to 8-year-olds will enjoy the specially designed Explorers program which includes themed parties and makes learning fun. Voyagers (ages 9 to 11) also shows the kids a great time onboard with a load of fun activities. Tweens and teens are also included, with programs designed to appeal to this age group, as well as provide freedom to come and go as they please.
Fitness and wellbeing

Located on Deck 12, the Vitality Fitness Centre features the very latest exercise equipment as well as a variety of fitness classes including yoga and Tai Chi. For wellbeing of a different kind, make your way down to the Vitality Spa on Deck 11 where you can treat yourself to a choice of over 100 treatments including massages, wraps, facials, and hair and nail treatments. For walking or jogging, there’s a track that loops around the sports deck if you feel like taking in the fresh air, and is divided in half so that runners and walkers can exercise at their own pace.
Shows and nightlife
Movies by the pool? Blackjack in the Casino Royale? Dinner and a show? There’s plenty of evening entertainment aboard Radiance of the Seas, all designed to help you have the most incredible holiday.
