Loyal RCCL cruiser

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
Other then the fact that the powers above chose to have formal night on Super Bowl Sunday, everything was great. One just had to make the big decision to attend the Packer/Steeler party with hot dogs, munchies, etc. or to dress up and enjoy filet mignon and escargot.

We were very impressed with the many venues that had live entertainment. Sometimes, there is dead time in the evenings. Not there!!! The Radiance had wonderful musicians/singers performing all the time and in many areas at the same time. There was something for everyone.

Our service was excellent, both in our stateroom and in the dining room (in fact, everywhere). Our bartender in the Diamond Lounge was awesome!

Our stateroom was very nice and had more storage than we've ever had, yet it was an inside cabin, not our usual balcony. Go figure.

The food was quite good and presentation was great. Drinks were excellent but prices have really increased.

The ports were ho hum, but More we have been before so didn't expect much.

Embarkation and debarkation were smooth and efficient. We were on and off quickly. And even though the ship was "full" we never felt crowded, nor did we have to wait in lines for anything.

The biggest drawback...it was only a 5 night cruise...much too short!!! Less
