10 Ships for People Who Think They Hate Cruisesby Heidi Sarna | January 23, 2016
Radiance of the Seas
Radiance of the Seas is tiny compared to the line’s newest megas, but the upscale, 2,100-passenger ship is big on design, with lots of wood tones, warm colors, and intriguing art. There are no wacky waterslides or ice-skating rinks; instead you'll find spaces like the Colony Club with its self-leveling pool tables and the top-deck Viking Crown lounge with its stunning views through glass walls. Multiple dining options include a Brazilian steakhouse and Italian, Japanese, and Mexican restaurants, plus close to 20 bars and lounges for live cabaret and music.
