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 Honolulu. Ease of check-in very good. Activities were lacking and mostly centered around sales pitches, such as a Good Feet presentation. There were 13 at sea days with very little to do. We had a deck 3 inside ... Read more

We were SO looking forward to this cruise, but sadly it just wasn't up to par for us. We are a family with two teens and our previous experiences with RCI have been fantastic, so we felt confident choosing this cruise. The staff for ... Read more

Inside Superior cabin fine although a few bits and pieces were coming apart. The main dining room was claustraphobic and disorganised, although our table stewards were great the service was slow. We were also seated right next to open ... Read more

We were looking forward to our cruise from Honolulu to Sydney via Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Suva and Isl of Pines. The ship really, basically too old! Our window cabin number 3064. Incredibly noisy! My wife complained each night ... Read more

Ship is looking very tired. Buffet food was just ok. Pillows must be 100 years old and hard as rocks. We had a balcony room which was very small. The shower was the smallest shower I have ever seen in my life and trying to wash one ... 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

We boarded easily in Honolulu without any difficulty even though a trainee checked us in (under close supervision by a manager). Unfortunately, after entering the ship, there was no one accessible to guide us-thank goodness we were ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise on Radiance, and the ship is lovely as ever. Embarkation and disembarkation were as smooth as could be, and the service was up to the usual excellent standard we have come to expect on RCL. Any problem we ... Read more

Right from the start you get a feeling how things are going to turn out. Call it quirky, I don't know, but it happens. We are on Diamond level & get the odd perk or two, but just getting on the ship was a little more difficult than ... Read more

Six of us sailed on this cruise from Hawaii to Sydney and from embarkation to disembarkation the whole trip was appalling. The people at the check in didn't seem to know what they were doing and gave us all the wrong cruise passes. Once on ... 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
