Radiance of the Seas Guaranteed Suite

Recommended Posts

We are on Radiance next August to Alaska with 2 other couples.  All are in Jr Suites.  The current price to allow Royal to chose the cabin is $1,000 less then we are paying.  We are not going to take it as 1) are are in 1100 (corner aft) and 2) paying with FCC’s that if we got the credit, would not be able to use.  The questions is for the other 2 couples.  Are there any “bad” Jr suites on Radiance?  Any really noisy or restricted view Jr Suites?  Any reason not to take it?


Thank you

Some of the JS’s on deck 10 are under the pool area. Many people avoid cabins in this location due to potential noise issues from chairs/sunbeds being moved around especially early morning when being set out by the crew.

There really aren't any bad JS on the Radiance class. We have stayed all over the ship (in JS) and went for a guarantee JS on Jewel in 2023 because of cost. 


Others have mentioned under the pool deck can get noisy with chairs and thumping. Under the windjammer can get noisy with carts rolling. There are 2 JS (one on either side) that house the window washing equipment. It is kind of a platformy thing about a foot and half wide, that extends above the balcony raining. But you get used to it really quick and it is not bothersome. 


For a $1000 difference, we would take the guarantee too.
