As of Sept. 15, Royal Caribbean International will resume revenue service on the Radiance of the Seas. It is set to resume its regular Alaskan schedule after having two cruises cancelled due to propulsion issues. As a result of the approval of our Marine technical team, we are pleased to announce that Radiance of the Seas will be returning to service soon.
After completing repairs and preparing for a sea trial, Royal Caribbean has confirmed that the vessel is capable of sailing as intended. As well as explaining the ship’s technical issue as related to the propulsion system, the company explained it would only affect the ship’s speed and ability to reach ports on time.
According to the statement, seaworthiness was never questioned despite some comments seen and heard. “We thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked to resolve this issue. We know your time with us will be nothing short of enjoyable, whether you are celebrating a special occasion or looking for a relaxing getaway,” Royal Caribbean concluded.
Until late September, the Radiance of the Seas is still offering seven-night cruises in Alaska. A number of destinations are included on the itineraries, including Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, Haines, Icy Strait Point, and Sitka. There will be six Alaskan and Canadian ports of call on the Sep. 15 sailing from Seward to Vancouver.
In October, the Radiance of the Seas will begin its winter season in the Caribbean following its repositioning cruise through the Panama Canal. A series of four- to seven-night cruises are scheduled to depart from Tampa to Mexico, Honduras, and the Bahamas beginning in April 2024 on board the 2,000-guest ship.
