We have just returned from a 10 night South Pacific Cruise on Radiance. We stayed in a Balcony stateroom which was compact, but extremely well designed to maximise all available space. We were easily able to unpack our entire (overpacked!) suitcase into the wardrobe and cupboards, and store our suitcase under the bed.
Our stateroom attendant (Antonio) did a wonderful job keeping our room meticulously clean on a daily basis, and was always seen with a smile and a friendly "hello". His towel animals were most appreciated. :)
We chose "My Time" Dining and the food selection and quality was superb. Our waiters were polite, efficient and friendly and our food was always served in a professional and timely manner. Other members of our travelling party (of 6) made use of 4 of the specialty restaurants on board and were blown away by the exceptional quality of the food. They even went on to say that it was some of the best meals that they had ever eaten!
The ship was clean, modern and lovingly decorated for Christmas with trees and gingerbread houses.
The ports of call exceeded our expectations. Excellent snorkelling was found on Lifou and Mystery Island, and all the beaches were lovely with their turquoise waters and white sand. The Mele Cascades in Vila were also a highlight. We organised our own excursions as we found it was cheaper and more convenient to do it this way.
We have cruised with Royal Caribbean on 4 other occasions, and although this was a smaller ship (other trips included Freedom and Voyager) it was a most enjoyable holiday.
Kudos to all the wonderful staff and crew. Your warm and welcoming manner helped to make our holiday most enjoyable.
