Myself (male, age 44) and DW (age 41); we have two young children who we left with the grandparents so we could enjoy a 10th anniversary cruise by ourselves. Our criteria for picking this sailing: (1) it had to include ports with Mayan ruins, and (2) it had to take place on our actual anniversary date. And this led us to a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise out of Tampa on the Radiance of the ...

Embarkation was fast and flawless. We went right to our 7th floor mid ship balcony room, walked out to see the view and were floored!!! Extending directly from our balcony was a ten foot white platform that we later determined was the roof holding the lifeboats on the floor below. There were workers on the platform, painting and doing repairs. Part of the enjoyment of a balcony room has always ...

In this review, I'm not going to repeat what I have read many times in other reviews. If you read this site as much as I did while planning and before taking a cruise, you already know everything about the ship. I will attempt to just include what we liked and didn't like (for whatever it is worth) and information about excursions that we took. We could not find anything to complain about in the ...

We Started cruising late in life, 6 years ago, but thanks to RCCL we were sold on cruising 15 in this period.Most have been on Celebrity,which we love but Royal has been more than satisfactory as has Princess. We did have a recent Carnival cruise that fell short of our expectations. We arranged our own flight and hotel arrangements in Fort Lauderdale. The embarkation process was wonderful it took ...

My husband and I (in our 30's) were lucky enough to be on the Radiance for the March 9, 2008 Eastern Caribbean sailing. We had a wonderful time, and are disappointed to be back in the "real world" where we have to pour our own wine and make our own bed. Day 1: Embarkation Embarkation was a breeze. We walked right into a large holding room where we were given a group ticket number 3. As ...

We did our first cruise over Christmas 1999 on Grandeur of the Seas (Eastern Carib), then two on Princess (Alaska & Southern Carib), so my husband and I (61 and 55) decided to try RCI again for the Western Carib route. Overall, we had a fabulous time! Radiance is indeed "radiant" - very pretty ship, but could tell that it's ready for some refurbishing. Chairs in some of the public areas are ...

This was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean. We had done a cruise on Princess and Carnival in the past. We did enjoy our time on the Radiance of the Seas and will look at booking with RCCL in the future. Our cabin was very spacious and the stateroom attendant did an excellent job. The "Windjammer"(buffet) was excellent. The food was very good and a good selection. The service on drink ...

We are a family of 5. My wife and I, a daughter 17, son 14, and daughter 4 went on this cruise. All but my son have cruised before, all on RCI. Sailing was 3/15 through 3/23. We visited San Juan, St Thomas, St Martin, Antigua, and Nassau. We arrived two days before departure to keep airfare for the cruise reasonable due to spring break. We stayed the Sheraton Yankee Clipper in Fort Lauderdale. She ...

This is the second cruise my mom and I have taken together. I live in Illinois and she lives in Texas so we meet at the port. We didn't stay at a hotel we arrived the day our ship would leave. Embarkation was not a problem. The ship was fabulous and huge. Our room was in a great location not too close to the elevator but not too far either. My mom has problems with her knees so walking can be an ...

This was our second time on the lovely Radiance of the Seas! Its not to big, not too small. Like everyone says, its a beautiful ship. We had a wonderful time. All the staff and crew are very friendly. We booked a GS. Loved it. Great for our family. Only issue was that our kids prefer not to share the pull-out couch. The cabin steward brought us a roll-out cot(very uncomfortable) and folded it up ...
