While not the biggest ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet, Radiance of the Seas is known as the “Porsche of the ocean” and has a loyal following in Australia among travellers seeking a cruise experience on a somewhat smaller (by comparison) and more personable cruise ship.

Radiance of the Seas has been sailing in Australia since the 2011/2012 season, having entered this market in support of fleet-made Rhapsody of the Seas, which was struggling with the positive problem of dealing with the massive swell of passengers flocking to cruising for their next holiday. In turn, Radiance quickly developed its own fanbase, which it maintains to this day. The ship was launched in 2000 and caters to 2,500 passengers, with 860 crew.

During the summer, you’ll find this ship seasonally based in Sydney and operating voyages to the South Pacific and around Australia, while the local winter sees Radiance head back across the Pacific to the United States, where it cruises into Alaska from Vancouver.
