We elected to go back on Radiance as my daughter had extensive surgery this year and needed a break and what better break than on the high seas on our favourite ship. We always review to keep the RCL reviews current and to help ... Read more

This was a 'performing arts' cruise with a stunning array of talented performers. All performers gave it everything they had and mixed freely with passengers. Unfortunately the joy of experiencing their performances was overshadowed by ... Read more
