After a 21-day dry-dock, Royal Caribbean International’s Radiance of the Seas reemerged from one of the most extensive revitalizations of the cruise line’s approximately $70 million Royal Advantage enhancements program for 2011.

The new variety of dining concepts, entertainment options, children’s programming and technology advancements originally introduced aboard Royal Caribbean’s new Oasis-class ships, debuts onboard Radiance of the Seas.

 This summer Radiance of the Seas sails alternating, seven-night Southbound and Northbound Alaska itineraries before repositioning for its first winter 2011 season to Australia and New Zealand.

“Radiance of the Seas’ dry dock is part of Royal Caribbean’s multi-ship enhancement and revitalization strategy to deliver the Royal Advantage to our guests,” said Lisa Bauer, senior vice president, Hotel Operations, Royal Caribbean International. “The Royal Advantage comprises some of the industry’s most innovative onboard amenities, programs and Gold Anchor Service that make up the most contemporary cruise vacation. By introducing almost all of the same specialty restaurants that can currently be found onboard Allure of the Seas as well some of the Oasis-class ships’ most popular concepts to Radiance of the Seas, guests can enjoy a variety of brand new onboard experiences.”

The all-encompassing revitalization introduces a range of amenities and experiences from the Royal Babies and Tots Nursery designed for children, 6 - 36 months old, to 12 newly added accommodations – one family, five interior and six exterior staterooms – and technology enhancements that include Wi-Fi availability throughout the ship and flat-panel interactive televisions in all staterooms.

The ship also features a new Concierge Lounge for suite guests, a Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty program members, the Quill and Compass Pub and an outdoor LED video wall overlooking the main pool area where families, friends and couples can enjoy movies under the stars and entertainment programs during the day.

Dining options onboard Radiance of the Seas have nearly doubled with the addition of seven of the most highly acclaimed dining concepts in the fleet, including Samba Grill a Brazilian steakhouse, the Asian Izumi restaurant, the Mexican-themed Rita’s Cantina and the Italian family-style restaurant Giovanni’s Table, as well as the Boardwalk Dog House hotdog stand, Park Café deli-style restaurant and the exclusive Chef’s Table dining experience.
