Radiance of the Seas was the first of three cruise ships in this class built for the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. Her sister ships Brilliance of the Seas entered service in 2002 and Jewel of the Seas 2004.

These three ships followed RCCLs five 142,000-ton Voyager of the Seas class that entered service between 1999 and 2003. With the Voyager class ships being so large they cannot use the Panama Canal, RCCL had the Radiance class designed to the maximum dimensions the canal can take. These ships are about the same size as the Vista Class ships of Carnival, Costa, Holland America, P&O, and Cunard, also built to be a tight fit through the Panama Canal locks.

Radiance has 12 passenger decks, 3 pools, 9 bars, casino, fitness center, 900-seat theatre, 813 outside cabins of which 577 have verandas, 237 inside cabins, can carry 2,100 passengers and a crew of 860.

Radiance Itinerary is from Vancouver - Alaska, Trans Pacific, and cruises from Sydney / Australia. Reviews.

Brilliance Itinerary is Northern Europe from Harwich/England, New England from Boston, and the Caribbean form Tampa. Reviews.

Jewel's Itinerary is out of Seatle - Alaska, and out of San Juan - Southern Caribbean. Reviews.
