This was a cruise we picked for our 30th anniversary. My wife wanted to see a volcano, I wanted to experience a longer cruise and we both wanted to see Hawaii. It was a perfect cruise for us! For background, we are fairly recent ... Read more

We had been to Hawaii 4 years ago and did this cruise on the Rhapsody, so wanted to do it again. There was a bit of a delay getting on the ship with long lineups for each C&A category. Our inside cabin was mid ship and 3rd level ... Read more

Booked Suite 1038 for 11 day cruise. Had nothing but trouble with the toilet; backed up 18 times. Staff continued to apologize, but never fixed the issue. Furniture was worn. Ship needs a major update. Common areas were dirty the ... Read more

Boarded the ship in Vancouver to sail to Hawaii and then do a back to back cruise to Sydney. Cabin was big enough, enough hanging space in the wardrobe and plenty of drawers. The bathroom was on the small side and if you dropped the soap, ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we flew from Heathrow, England, to join the ship in Vancouver. We had a delay in England and arrived in Vancouver 5 hours late although we were staying in a hotel overnight so we were ok. We joined Radiance ... Read more

What a disappointment.....Looked so forward to a lovely five day ocean cruise with five day island hopping - what was I thinking? Have been on many cruises over the years....in the travel business for over 25 yrs. and this was a ... Read more

Worst embarkation experience ever. Because a law prohibits US port to US port cruises, this cruise had to depart from Ensenada, even though most of us checked in at the San Diego port. That wasn't RC's fault, but the lack of communication ... Read more

As with any holiday it is the people that make it. Thanks to all of our Cruise Critic friends who helped make this an incredibly awesome 28 day trip. I would however not sail on the Radiance again. The ship itself is very tired looking and ... Read more

This was our third cruise on the Radiance. We had a very sociable and energetic Cruise Critics group which made for a most enjoyable cruise. Embarkation - Although passengers were given different boarding times depending on the deck ... Read more

we stayed in Sydney the night before the cruise. I was amazed just hoe close to the pier we actually were. On the day of boarding we had plans to look around the rocks markets as we were told we couldn't board until our cabin level was ... Read more

This cruise was very good overall. Embarking in Vancouver was a DISASTER (It took us 3 hours) but that was more the Port of Vancouver's fault than RCL. Our room was as expected... nothing more nothing less. Food in the main dining room was ... Read more

We did a 10-day repositioning cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii in September 2014. Much of the cruise was just fine: the ship, the crew, embarkation, etc. But there were several drawbacks that significantly diminished the experience. First, ... Read more

We have cruised often but never for longer than 7 nights and never with this many sea days (5), so this was a new experience. A few specific comments. One, the ship is very nice and in great shape. It is easy to get around and rarely ... Read more

Originally we had booked the Sept. 2015 cruise to Hawaii, but it was cancelled and RCI was nice enough to give us a $400.00 OBC. So we decided to go early, Sept. 2014. Flight We booked all of the flight arrangements separately from RCI, ... Read more

I'm sure the ship may have been a Rhapsody at some point but it needs to be retired. Hawaii and Canada were lovely and was the only saving grace. I'm not sure why RCL has invested in trying to put a band-aid on this boat instead of just ... Read more

We have been loyal RCL cruisers for many years. We tried other cruise lines and always come back to RCL for the WOW factor. We booked this cruise for the destination and that is just what we got. A boat ride with poor meal selection, ... Read more

Sailed the Rapsody to Alaska two years ago. The experience other than the entertainment was a total delight. This sailing was an utter disappointment. I had bragged the Rapsody up to our companions to the extent that |I was embarrassed. ... Read more

My last few cruises on RCI have been less than satisfactory, but the Rhapsody was outstanding. I believe a ship experience reflects the Captain and in our case Captain Rob was one of the best I've sailed with. His dry humor made his noon ... Read more

We were so excited for this cruise! Paid A LOT ($10.000+) for this as it was a celebration of my retirement from education. Had a suite where the only one higher was the Royal Suite. The suite was fine....comfy bed, it was roomy. Here is ... Read more

Absolutely no complaints on this cruise/ship. Staff was wonderful. We always tipped extra as they deserved it. Pre-cruise stay at Hilton Hawaiian Village was very nice. Paradise. Nicest part of the beach. Didn't seem crowded at all. Clean ... Read more
