Ship Facts: Radiance of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Radiance of the Seas Deck Plans
Aloha Oe

We had a great time, with nothing to complain about....well, ok, it rained more than I'd have liked, but that was about it. The ship was beautiful. We've cruised every class but Oasis, and for the smaller scaled ships, we found Radiance to be lovely. The Centrum area was very pretty with its waterfalls, pretty lights, and elevators. The 2 piece band every evening in the Centrum that played Hawaiian music were really good. The whole ship had a luxury yacht feel, with a lot of dark woods and brass. Sure it was dated, but in a way that still had class. Amy, the cruise director was great. No complaints about the meals onboard. I especially enjoy the Park Cafe for a light breakfast or lunch. The Solarium is difficult to find chairs, and its true, you have to be up there at least by 6 am. to get one. Having said that....has anyone out there ever gotten into The Sanctuary on Princess? That's even worse. We had an oceanview on deck 3, really nicely appointed room. Ports of call were beautiful, again, the weather could have been sunnier and drier. The first 3 days at sea towards Victoria were great days to be out at the pool, temperatures for early May were fine for sitting sunbathing. I didn't find the ship dirty at all. If you are thinking of doing a repositioning to or from Hawaii to Vancouver, I might suggest September vs May, in hopes the weather in Hawaii might be drier in the fall than the spring. Although it was nice to return back home having already adjusted our clocks back to PST by the time we hit North America. For anyone out there going to Maui.....the best tour of all is The Adventure to Hana. I've been to Maui before, and done Haleakala Crater, and The Ioa Valley...If you want to see the best of the best, do the road to Hana. This is the Hawaii you want to see, I promise. It's a long day, but it was the highlight of the islands.
