Ship Facts: Radiance of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Radiance of the Seas Deck Plans
Fantastic Trans Pacific Crossing

This was a 17 night crossing of the Pacific from Honolulu to Sydney via Tahiti and New Zealand. The service was great, the food was great. We went to Chops Grill, Giovani's and the Samba Grill. Food and service was top notch. The ports in French Polynesia were beautiful. Wellington was windy and it rained in Picton but you can't do anything about the weather.

Most of the crossing was calm with 1 night of 4m swells between Tahiti & NZ but the 1st 24 hours after we left Picton was a little wild (up to 7m swells I heard) but Raidiance seamed to handle the seas very well. After 1 slight slow down due to the weather the Captain put the throttle on hard and we did about 24knots for most of the next day or so. Great thrill.

In Bora Bora we did a Tour organised via another Cruise Critic member that was fantastic.. Caught up with a few staff from our previous cruise on Radiance and renewed friendships... Overall it was just a great time and I was sorry to disembark.

Small items of critisism. The dance floor in the colony club was not as well utilised as we had experienced on our previous cruise. The "Big" production shows were virtual repeats from last year... You'd have thought RCI could have come up with some new shows in 12 months... Still good shows, just repeats.
