The main thing about the cruise was the kids club. DD8 really enjoyed it, it was very active (much more so than Princess and P&O) with lots of ball games and running around. It's a pity that they don't have a printed list at the ... Read more

We elected to go back on Radiance as my daughter had extensive surgery this year and needed a break and what better break than on the high seas on our favourite ship. We always review to keep the RCL reviews current and to help ... Read more
