A glimpse of the ocean

The Radiance class is a class of four midsized cruise ships operated by Royal Caribbean built between 2001 and 2004. The Radiance class offers plenty of diversity while maintaining an intimate vibe.

These ships have over 3 acres of glass on each ships and thus passengers get a glimpse of the ocean from almost any vantage point.

  • Built: 2001 - 2004
  • In service: 2001 - present
  • Fleet Status: 4 out of 4


The Radiance-Class Ships are : Radiance of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas, Jewel of the Seas and Serenade of the Seas.


Royal Caribbean went big on the “glass” with this class of ships. You’ll come across glass elevators, two-tiered glass dining rooms, and retractable glass roof over the pool. The Radiance was also the first class to feature the self-levelling pool tables.
