Ship Facts: Radiance of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Radiance of the Seas Deck Plans
How To Lose Weight Without trying!
A beautiful ship with excellent service but food taste and quantity was mediocre.Anytime Dining still required reservations at least a day in advance and we were limited to basically the early seating hour anyhow.They haven't learned how to handle this yet. Food in the Buffet area was fair in quality, sometimes very salty or lacking in taste. It looked good but was disappointing. Activities onboard were geared to the young and restless, not the predominant upper middle aged to seniors and large number of disabled.Many of the activities began after ten PM into the early AM hours. If one didn't drink heavily(the drinks were almost devoid of alcohol) or dance or gamble they retired early.

Onboard activities were very limited and repetitious. There were charges for everything, $37 per person to play bingo, even $4 for a small bottle of water.Wine had to be ordered by the half dozen bottles, at three times the usual cost. The toilet system was frequently out of order and a perpetual odor emanated from the toilets. One very hot, humid day in port was followed by no water in the room,supposedly down for service.Guest services never called back with answers when problems arose. Had to wait two hours to take a shower to be presentable. Our balcony room on the ninth level was comfortable with enough room for us two large people. However Mr. Cigar Smoker somewhere nearby made sitting on our balcony pretty stinky. Smoking should be limited to areas that don't infringe on others, downwind preferably in the rear of the ship. Debarkation was long, organized confusion.Our luggage was damaged beyond repair when we claimed it in the homeport, and our compensation was minimal, not replacement value at all. Shame on Royal Caribbean!
