Picking the best cabin on the Royal Caribbean - Radiance of the Seas

It is helpful to have some information on cabin sizes, categories, and placement when selecting the stateroom that will most fit your needs onboard the Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas. Both Outside and Interior category staterooms are nicely appointed, but they do not have balconies. These rooms range in size from 164 to 319 square feet. The Balcony category includes the 184 square foot Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms and the 194 square foot Superior Ocean View Staterooms. Both have balconies measuring from 43 to 45 square feet. Guests who require a larger space may wish to choose from the Suite/Deluxe category. These rooms range from 293 square foot Junior Suites to 951 square foot Royal suites. These cabins have balconies as well, measuring 64 to 283 square feet. Handicapped passengers will enjoy the special features found within the wheelchair accessible staterooms. Along with lowered beds, vanities, and closet bars, these cabins have amplified phones and caption TVs. The oversized bathrooms have roll in showers that include benches, hand held shower heads, and grip bars.

Bedding

An exclusive line of linens, the Royal Caribbean Bedding Collection is used on all guest’s beds. Made in Italy exclusively for the Royal Caribbean line of ships, each set consists of a 300 count Egyptian cotton fitted sheet, embroidered Royal Caribbean logo flat sheet, pillowcases, and a duvet with cover. Royal Sweet Dreams Pillows and Royal Memory Pillows complete the set that is placed over a Royal Mattress and Royal Pillow top Pad.

Bed Sizes

Beds onboard the Royal Caribbean Radiance of the Seas will range in size from twins to king size. Most twin beds can easily be converted into a queen size bed. Pullman beds and sofa beds are used to add more sleeping space within the cabins without wasting floor space when not in use. Larger Suites contain queen and king beds, many times in separate bedrooms.
