I must start out by saying that we are Diamond members and have cruised with RCL for years to all different destinations from the Caribbean to Europe and our most recent cruise last week to Alaska. We have noticed over the last few cruises more penny pinching and the food going downhill, but after a two year break we decided to give it one last go. Alaska was breathtaking and one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The cruising however was the Low point of our vacation. We paid a Royal fortune to stay in the Royal Suite on board the Radiance of the Seas for our Alaskan family vacation. After so many cruises we decided to save and splurge on this suite as two of our children are heading to college and our family vacation days may be coming to an end. BIG MISTAKE. From Check-in to disembarkation on the last day, there were so many snafus, too many to mention. Where we didn't expect to be treated like royalty, we did expect to have exceptional service. We did not. Even though we booked this cruise almost a year in advance, our dining table was hidden way back in the middle of the dining room--no where near a window, not even close enough to see "out" a window. We complained. The Dining Room Manager said he would see what he could do and ended up doing nothing. We called our "concierge" who did work out another table as long as we agreed to "anytime dining" and not the first seating. All this took so long we ended up eating in the sub par Windjammer Cafe the first night. Our Suite was "dated" and definitely needed an overhaul. There were so many things NOT working it was crazy. Jacuzzi broken, Sound system for the TV's broken, light bulbs missing, plugs not working etc... Each day of our cruise brought a new worker/repair person to our cabin for something else. It was very frustrating. Bottom line- we DID not expect "Special" treatment, but we did PAY for Special Treatment and did not get it. The food was not great (our waiters the couple of nights we actually got to eat in the dining room were nice, however and the Maitre D was very sweet) and the overall quality of everything from the Casino, bar drinks, entertainment (always less then great but even more so this cruise), have all gone downhill. Simple pleasures like the towel animals they leave in the room (we have a 12-yr old) are few and far between and we had to ASK. The room steward seemed annoyed. That's right, The Royal Suite Room Steward couldn't be bothered with making more than a couple of towel animals. We usually stay in just a family suite so if you are even thinking of wasting the inflated amount of money that the royal suite costs, DON'T DO IT. The ports were great, all beautiful with lots to do. We never booked excursions thru the ship learning early on that their "cut" built in inflates the price and booking on your own is better. With sites like this and trip advisor, we have always found reliable tour companies to book, many times the same ones RCL uses just less expensive without their cut. Rum Runners Charters and Captain Chris in Juneau for fishing and whale watching was FABULOUS. We did the helicopter to the Glacier in Skagway, excellent, float plane in Ketchikan-loved it, and ziplining in Icy Straits. Our only disappointment was the ship. Never saw the Captain, saw the Cruise director once, and left messages for the hotel director Mark Rook who couldn't be bothered to return our call. Cruise to Alaska, just don't do it on RCL. There are too many competing cruise companies to remain loyal to cruise line that doesn't appreciate its repeat passengers. Just saying............ Read Less

Experienced problems with embarkation. SeaPass cards were not ready/available. We boarded ship with a paper boarding pass. Total time to get on ship and have a SeaPass card was in excess of 1.5 hours. Crew did not know what to do with a paper boarding pass. Had to wait on 3 different lines. Stateroom (#1578) was well equipped and all of our luggage was there when we arrived. The view from the balcony showed chipped paint, exposed metal, and rust galore. For a vessel coming out of dry dock, one would not expect to see that type of external conditions. Dining experience was the worst I have experienced on RCCL ships. Food came cold or appetizers / soups never appeared. Head Waiter was more interested in going thru his script than dealing with the poor service. When told about the cold food, his comment was "We will get in right tomorrow.". In our party, there were suppose to be two anniversary celebrations. Neither one of them were acknowledged by the dining room staff (waiter or head waiter). Space in the Windjammer Cafe is now at a premium. With over 1/2 of the original area taken away for the new restaurants, people were racing around to find tables. The Windjammer food is OK and it seems to be consistent from ship to ship as for taste and quality. On the other hand, the dining room food was very poor quality and taste. The best meal I had was the 14.95 Chops Fillet. All of the other main dishes were below Royal Caribbean standards. Salmon on a Cedar Plank had such a strong lemon/citrus taste that the Head Waiter claimed that it was due to the Cedar Plank. (huh???). Escargot was cold and rubbery. Now for the good side: Entertainment was excellent. The shows and comedians captivated the audience. The Cabin Steward was attentive and thorough. The room was clean and ready for us every evening. The excursions were excellent. And Alaska is hard to mess up. The Captains approach to the Hubbard Glacier was challenging and he and the crew were up to the task. They maneuvered around so many ice obstacles, it was amazing that we got as close to the face of the glacier as we did. Read Less

Over all, Horrible crew, Very poor service, at times confrontational. Smell of sewage overwhelming in both of the rooms we booked. Ship in poor condition overall. RC should have never let passengers on board. Expect a 2 star experience at best. Will never sail with RC again! Read on for the details. This was a repositioning trip where the ship went to dry dock for refurbishing. embarkation process was fine. The first negative experience was when we got to our rooms. The smell of raw sewage from the bathroom was overwhelming. and there was some damage to the decor. Good sized room though. Our next bad experience was our first night for the early seating dinner. We booked our cruise on-line and requested a private table for our family of five which included two small children. We were seated at a large table with two other couples. I asked for the table we reserved, but was harshly told this is all they had and to check back the next day to make arrangements. Went back the next day and spoke with the daytime attendee at host stand to get the table we pre-reserved for our family. He rudely told us he could not help us and I must speak with the restaurant manager, but he would be unavailable until dinner service. When we arrived that evening they kept me and my children waiting for several minutes while they walked the dining room asking people to move. I saw how unprofessional it all was and just wanted to eat and get out at that point and asked to be seated at our original table. They insisted on keeping up the ridiculous effort of asking people to move. I had to tell the hosts several times that our original table would be fine just to get some food for our kids. Needless to say we spent the rest of the dinners at a shared table. Never got what we reserved, and no crew member seemed to care at all. The food on board was marginal to say the best. poor quality of the ingredients and poor preparation. I swear one nights soup choice was rotten. Did have a good server assistant, server was ok, Head waiter was horrible, unhelpful and rude. Found myself eating salad and pizza for the majority of the trip, not fantastic, but I knew what I was in for. One of the worst experiences was when I witnessed an older lady (70's) order a mint julip next to me at the Schooner Bar. She told the bartender that her drink was terrible. He began to yell at her and belittle her saying he did not make that drink and she should apologize to him for blaming him for a sub-par drink. The lady was in tears and actually apologized to him. I guess they fixed her drink, she took it and left as did we. UNBELIEVABLE! I wrote to Royal Caribbean to tell of these and other negative experiences we had. I got a pretty insincere sounding apology letter was expecting more of a reaction to how bad our crew was and the poor conditions of the ship. I guess the poor service of Royal Caribbean flows from the top down. Needless to say I will Never sail with RC again. I hope this review makes one think twice about booking with them. Read Less

Imagine that you're returning from a lovely excursion in Cozumel and upon reentry to your cruise ship, your sea pass causes the crew-member to utter the scary phrase "You need to report to Guest Services immediately."This happened to me aboard Radiance of the Seas on Saturday, April 23rd. While relieved to hear that I wasn't flagged because of a death in the family, I was forced to process news of a water main break that had occurred in our absence causing flooding in the aft section of Deck 9. We were told not to worry: Our belongings would be cleaned or replaced and during the cleanup, we could take a shower in the spa and have free drinks poolside. The huge, loud fans in the room left it unusable for the remaining 41 hours of the cruise. We were told the flood water was clean but the towels used for soaking up were turning brownish yellow and the smell was sickening...so much so that my husband was given 3 medications by the ship's doctor for throat irritation the following morning(Easter Sunday.) In the lesser affected room of the 2 we paid for, a roll-away cot was set up for my teenage daughter, and my teenage son slept on the couch. There were no other rooms as the cruise was sold out, but the regular room was obviously intended for only two people, as evidenced by the two life vests which we would have needed to share if there was need. As you can imagine, movement through that cabin was difficult and privacy forsaken. We opted not to have our laundry done on board as our neighbors reported having to wait a very long time only to receive it back damp and discolored. While one crew-member assured us this had not happened before, another said their quarters were similarly flooded a few weeks prior. So Saturday at 7:00p.m. instead of attending a much-anticipated show, we went to Guest Services for a pre-arranged meeting. Thanks to an employee there by the name of Kwame, I now refer to it as guest "Dis-Services". His words to my husband were "I don't even know who you are and I'm finished with you!" in a very belligerent tone. We were told by Tanya that our only reimbursement would be a $175credit and 35% off one cabin on a future cruise. What is that? I did not even want to continue to be trapped in a smelly boat for the last two days and nights, so I don't expect there will be another Royal Caribbean Cruise in our future, and those "coupons" will be sent back. As for those "free" drinks they offered us, I was still fighting for a charge reversal at 10:10 Monday morning as everyone else had departed for the airport or parking lot. While at the Guest dis-services desk, I witnessed another passenger in a screaming match with the representative who said she owed for drinks purchased at the last hour. She said she paid $10,000 for her cruise, and now they were making her miss her flight over a charge that was not hers. I'm not looking for a golden ticket here...just reimbursement of a product we purchased (a habitable cabin) that we did not receive. Royal Caribbean may be finished with us but any cruisers who have a choice in ships will be well-advised to steer clear of Royal Caribbean. Read Less

I would never have thought I would be writing a review on a site like this, but I can't let this go by. I took my wife and our 2 teenagers on a Spring Break, Easter cruise on the Radiance of the Sea. I have been a huge fan of Royal Caribbean and have booked away from other cruise lines. I have always told family and friends just how much I have enjoyed Royal Caribbean on past cruises. Never again! I don't know where to begin so I will start where all the problems began. When getting back on the ship from a day at the beach in Cozumel, we were "flagged" and instructed to see Guest Services. We were told there was an accident and our rooms were flooded. I say "rooms" because we booked 2 cabins. There was one cabin between the two we booked. We were escorted to our 9th deck hallway to be overwhelmed by a disgusting odor. Walking towards the aft portion of the ship, where our cabins were, the smell became increasingly worse. Not to mention the carpet was now squishing under foot as if walking on a soaked sponge. The sound of shop vacs and blower fans screamed in the background. We get to our cabin and thank goodness someone had the foresight to put our belongings up on our beds. We thank our cabin attendant for his diligence. This would be a good place to mention there were a few individuals that were very courteous and went out of their way to apologize for this situation. "Few" being the operative word here. One of our cabin's was completely uninhabitable. Strong pungent odor and carpeting was drenched. We were told it would be replaced, it never was. We moved all our belongings to the cabin that was the lesser of the two evils. Thinking we may possibly be able to use our other cabin at some point, as they told us we would. The stains on the towels they had put down made us realize that staying in this one cabin would not be possible. Even if you could handle the industrial size blower fans that were placed in the rooms. Evidently, for the NEXT cruise. There we are, back from a day at the beach, and the water, the shower, and the toilets are not working. Dinner in less than an hour so we were instructed to shower at the spa and use the public bathrooms. It is never my desire to use a public toilet on board a ship that has been at sea a couple of days. That was our only option. So we got ready for dinner at the spa and get back from dinner to find a note saying how sorry Royal Caribbean is and please accept $175 for the inconvenience. A nice start we thought, considering $175 is a day at the pool for a family of four. I should also mention here that when our rooms had no water or toilets, we were offered to go to the pool bar for free drinks. We were instructed to use our sea pass and the charges would be deducted. I have had tooth extraction that was easier than getting the $100 taken off our bill prior to leaving the ship. Information came painfully slow. What are we to do? Is there another room we can move to? The smell is making us all ill. The ship staff was having a meeting to decide what to do with the 20 or so people this affected. We thought, "thank goodness, something will be done." It never was done. The ship was completely filled with every cabin taken. The next day our eyes were so watery, and throats so sore from the pungent smell of a damp, dank carpet that we were concerned about what was seeping in to the carpet. We were told fresh water. The smell made us think otherwise. I asked if anyone else was having symptoms of sore throats, itchy, and watery eyes, and it was requested that we visit the ship's Dr. I don't see a Dr. for the sniffles, but now I am concerned about what these fumes and odors are that we have been breathing in for the past 15 hours. The Dr. prescribed us steroids and benadryl and told us to stay out of the sun for these make one photo sensitive. SO with two more days, we are told not to spend any time in the sun. We were also asked by the Dr why we would stay where the fumes were making us this sick. Again, the ship was full, and our one cabin that was not totally sopping wet was our only option. He offered us a bed in the sick bay. In hindsight, maybe that would have been more comfortable. The 4 of us camped out thinking that a line with the reputation of Royal Caribbean would certainly make things right. Meaning giving us what we paid for. I regret to say, that has yet to happen. Not only has that yet to happen, it may take legal action to even get something other than what was already offered on board. I should mention we also have been offered 35% off a future cruise if taken within a year. I'll say here that some in Guest Services were just out right rude and nasty when we protested our treatment. One manager elevated the situation and proclaimed, "I'm done with you!" I have never been treated with such contempt by someone in the service industry. The cruise industry is thriving. The ship must have been testing its pipes while the majority of passengers were off ship. The pressure caused a major malfunction in our section of the ship, and we are pushed aside with $275 for this "inconvenience." It ruined our vacation. The insult to this injury is to be so loyal to Royal Caribbean only to be treated so rudely. I am disputing the charge through my credit card, am writing a letter to CEO Adam Goldstein, and will report back on how this situation is handled. For now, they have created a public relations nightmare that would have been very easily fixed on board the ship before we disembarked. As I said, we were 4 of about 20 people this affected. Some worse than others, I am sure. I would go in to detail about the other friendly personnel on board, but a favorable review of the entire experience is not possible. It would be like asking President Lincoln's wife "other than that Mrs. Lincoln, what did you think of the play?" I hope Royal Caribbean learns a valuable lesson here. I know I sure have. I will never cruise on this line again. I'm afraid this is a sign of our times. There is someone else behind me to take my place if I don't book on this line. They know that, and they are treating me like this. They have become just like the other lines that I would have never considered booking with. Just with a higher fee. Read Less

Just sailed Radiance of the seas Jan 8 through Jan 13 and was disappointed. The cruise started out bad because the prior sailing came down with norovirus and the CDC had to scrub the ship down so instead of boarding at 2pm we did not get on the ship until 9pm. This was my 12th cruise and I booked 2 rooms as I brought my son (22) and his girlfriend (22) for her first cruise. My last 3 cruises were on Disney so maybe I've been spoiled a bit. Anyway, our first day was completely wasted and we didn't even get into our room til around 11pm. From this point on the entire cruise seemed like it was completely disorganized. We Didn't get navigators (schedules of daily events) until the 3rd day so we weren't able to plan for anything. A few positives. The ship is really beautiful, the rooms were large, although the bathrooms smelled like someone had been very sick. My sons room was horrific smelling and the safe and tv did not work. They were sterilizing everything so we didn't get tv remotes til day 3, glasses to drink with til day 4 and ice was impossible to get. I could easily say this was the worst cruise I have ever been on.The staff was very nice considering that everyone on the ship was complaining.We were given a $50 credit per passenger which kinda screwed me since I was traveling alone in my cabin and I paid full price. The $50 was not enough. Lets talk about the food. OMG! The absolute worst food I have ever eaten on a cruise ship!!!. It wasn't just us. Everybody was saying the same thing. By night 4 the premier restaurants were booked solid. We did eat at Chops on night 3 and it was very good. The late night mexican buffet was so bad I spit my food back onto the plate. Realistically, I've had much better food at Taco Bell. The main dining room was terrible as well. I love steak and I actually took 2 bites of my new york strip and just gave it back. Breakfast was tasteless and cold. The fruit was the only thing worth putting on your plate. I'm betting it wasn't norovirus and putting my money on mass food poisoning. Cozumel was great and so was Costa Maya. I'm reading this and saying wow I sound like a real complainer, but I'm really not. I'm a glass half full kinda guy. I've just never experienced such a bad cruise experience. I love cruising!!! and I'm already planning my next cruise, It just wont be on RCCL. Read Less

We traveled to San Diego for the 9 night Mexican Rivera cruise. I should have realized with the check in and pre-cruise customer service that this was going to be a very interesting cruise. Having traveled on Disney multiple times and also Princess I was expecting great service from Royal Caribbean. The embarkation was delayed and everyone was waiting in the port to board and it was cattle call boarding. Something I haven't experienced for a while. Once on board we saw the cruise ship and it was in good condition clean and overall pretty nice. I guess the main place to start is what we liked about the cruise. Our favorite port was Manzanillo and Ixpacta. Maztatlan was great as well. The ports were nice. The magic show was great and so was the tango beunes aires. What was comicle to us was the final show and most of the entertainment. The shows were very interesting and not a full production or show i would suggest seeing. The nightlife on this ship was very interesting and my wife called it a boose cruise. If you don't drink as we don't it would seem that most of the entertainment is engaged with boose. What was the absolute worst. On the first night of the cruise we asked to see if we could change rooms or pay for an upgrade to another room as where we were located had abnormal amounts of movement. I thought it interesting before i could finish A No was basicly yelled to me. My wife is somewhat sensative to motion and on Disney we had no problem at all and where in a similar space, midship. This was a interesting way to start of the cruise. The food on this cruise was actually disgusting. I had better food in a college dorm. The windjammer had the same food every day. They did not have food rotation at all. When dining the basic serve cold food cold and serve hot foot hot rule wasn't followed at all. Things were always luke warm. The service was just ok and I would say that the cascades dining room didn't have quality food. the chicken was mostly pressed chicken and reminded me of McDonalds food. If you like fast food you will like the food but if fine dining and quality food is what your expecting travel on another cruise line. I did cancel our cruise in December 2010 on the Oasis ship simply to the food quality and customer service. The price for the cruise was the common value but I didn't quite realize what that meant for the cruise. I would be leary to book on RCC again as Disney and Princess obtain most of our future bookings. Sorry but i would give the cruise negative but thats not possible. The only redeeming quality to the cruise was a couple of shows, the magic show, the first commedian and the tango beunes aires show and the ports. Read Less

My husband and I are avid cruisers, we used to think it was about flying and getting a hotel but discovered cruising and now that is all we do!! We love it, until this time. We took the 5 day Radiance of the Seas to Cabo San Lucas as a getaway before the holidays we left around the 12th of December. First we live in San Diego so we thought it would be so cool to just board here no flying and take a nice getaway..were we wrong! Boarding was no problem the people were nice on the pier and we took one of the pedicabs to the boat so much fun!! Played Reggae in the cart was great! If I had known what the cruise would hold for us I would have paid double to be taken back to our car! First, the ship was old looking to us. We went into the Adults only Sanctuary and it had silk flowers around the pool area that looked like they had not been dusted in years and had started to turn blue due to sun..really tacky! It was closed in so there was no fresh air which was odd. Second, we got a balcony room which is what we have always gotten on our other trips. This was our first (and last) time with Royal Caribbean so we had only known the Princess line and what a balcony was like there BIG difference!! The room was tiny, half the size of a Princess room, and the balcony was not private at all- only partially covered then glass so you can see your neighbors. Then the balcony was set back so when you look down you see the top of the floor below you...not water it was another 10 feet to see water, this is why we want the balcony! But this is not the worst...this was the noisiest room I have ever had, even in a hotel, every night at 8:00 pm to around 11:30 we could hear music coming from the dance area, so loud that we could sing along but mostly it was the bass that pounded on the walls that drove us crazy, if you want quiet this is not the boat for you!! We could hear our neighbors, the hallway, the dance music..everything but the ocean...... I do have to say the bed was nice but who could sleep!! We mentioned it to the front desk person and they just said there was nothing they could do it was the location of the room!! So we paid $900 to sit in room that was horrible with no customer service..and the food was like any cafeteria I have ever eaten at. The best thing I ate on the ship was the frozen yogurt and thank god for the coffee bar!! It was really cold on deck for the first couple of days and really windy so we had to find a cubby hole at the back of the boat and I mean the back. We are non smokers so we sat down and found out quickly that apparently that is where the smokers go so we went back to our cabin. When it finally started to warm up we were close to Cabo, if you want to party this is the place because it was loud and you get hit with people trying to sell things the minute you get off the boat. I walked the whole pier and was asked no less than 30 times, we turned around went back to the boat because it was so loud and annoying. I could keep going but why, it was the worst cruise we have ever taken and will not return to Royal Caribbean! Princess has us for life!! They are amazing, the best ship was the Coral but the others were just beautiful and CLEAN never saw dust like we saw on Royal. Frankly in the lobby it was tiny and looked like the plants (both real and fake) had not been dusted in a couple years...horrible!! Good Luck if you go on this ship.....we will never go again..

This was a very important 10 yr anniversary for me and my friends, so I took them as a thank you. I have done RCCL before and knew how it would, or should have, worked. Radiance is the most beautiful in the fleet. Embarkation was incredible. We did our SetSail Pass and excursions on line. WOW!!! ten star! 20 minutes between taxi, bags, check-in, and entering our stateroom. We hit the spa, took the tour, and then scheduled 6 massages (2 for each of us). Unfortunately because there was an EXTREME bad attitude from the Customer Service Manager, when I presented her with the lack of stateroom attendant. Our attendant was Dwayne. On Wed. we talked as a group, and at that point, his tip was down to $20. The filth in our cabin at least was consistent (brown toilet, ashtrays never emptied, scum on shower wall, grimy bath tub, etc...) This left us with no other option, zero tip, but we did write down the flaws and maybe he can improve on it for the next passengers. Right after the customer service manager stormed away in a panic, it was obvious that nothing was going to happen from her, AS A SUPERVISOR. Then up to deck 12 to the loyalty ambassador. Her service, for a customer retention representative, was just as bad, but at least she said thanks. I asked for her to remove me off the Crown and Anchor society and she said "Thanks and done." No questions on why? Why was that????? This whole thing could have solved in an instant, but because these people were having bad day's, they have sealed the company's fate. I just gave them $7,500 this time and $8,000 last year. I will not be back. Now that was the only two. Everybody else was 5 star PLUS. On the last night we had dispersed over $600 in tips. waiter; Abel assistant waiter; Diane bartender; Didi The service was incredible by our dining staff. Other countless people are in the Hollywood Odyssey, Kim. For just a bartender, he received an extra large tip on Saturday night. Seaveiw Cafe bar, Rowe. Her service and especially her hospitality and charm were Far and Above. Rhada and Jocko same thing. Must do the Quest. That was the best thing. I was busy this cruise, belly flop, scrap booking class, Quest, Captains Welcome Aboard, and the '50s nite. The ports were wonderful. the only hurricane damage was in Cozumel, and it was pretty bad, Watch your excursions here. I will close. Hopefully this will be of some information to a few people.

This was the most disappointing cruise of my life. The ship is , in my opinion, modestly decorated, which means lots of browns, tans, and pastel colors. Fixtures and specialty art was MILDLY interesting, but not worth looking at twice. Kinda like being in a funeral home... not dirty, just not worth coming back to. By comparison, I feel Carnival ships are THRILLING to be a part of, with vibrant colors, exciting 'THINGS' to look at, and a general feeling of FUN. FOOD = VERY SAD !!! Without fail, the food in the dining room reminded me of eating at a CHEAP buffet. Presentation was not bad, but not great. Taste was un-definable, service was somewhere between slow and "hey, where is our waiter?" ROOMS = SMALL Short, skinny people with light luggage will be mostly comfortable. The rest may wish to choose another cruise line. The balcony is small, but probably all you need. Taking a shower is a real challenge for someone 6'2" and 230 lbs. (Showering Tip: Wash your hair before entering shower ...no room to lift your arms). I will say one thing [sort of] positive about the bathroom. The toilet is absolutely the most powerful one ever known to modern man. When flushing is is wise to stand back 'lest ye be sucked in. CASINO = RIP-OFF Blackjack players BEWARE. weird rules include, no doubling down on ANY split, Blackjacks pay 6-5 (instead of 3-2) and a few more odd-ball rules that DESTROY the players chances of recovery on a bad shoe. STAFF = So-So Dining room staff OK, but not great. I think it was because they have far too many tables to be effective. Cabin attendant was GREAT...maybe even spectacular! Trying to use the telephone from your cabin is somewhat like playing jeopardy. You ask something .. they give you an answer .... and it is your job (based on the answer) to figure out what the question was. This can go on as long as you are willing to play. Big language problem here! SHORE EXCURSIONS - Some of these ports (i.e. Haiti, Jamaica) are real safety issues for Americans, from a kidnapping level. Passengers should be made aware of this before booking an excursion that may become the MOST memorable of their life. We did not realize the true magnitude of the danger until AFTER we returned and read it in the Tampa Tribune in the first week of Dec 2005. SUMMARY - Yes, the ship was clean, but that is to be expected from any ship. Value is poor since other lines have better rates. Take your own food. Book your shore excursions at the dock for prices that can be 200% cheaper. Stay out of the Casino. HMM-m-m-m ... I guess what I am saying is PICK ANOTHER CRUISE LINE. I certainly will !! Read Less

My wife and I found the Radiance of the Seas to be a NICE ship ...but NOT as nice as others. While certainly not shabby, it lacked brilliance and sparkle, which IS there on Carnival ships. It is nice in the way an older hotel is nice. Subdued browns and tans. More tailored to the quiet, 60-70's age group ...not us, the wild and EXCITING 50s age group. (? ! ? ! ) FOOD: BLAH !!! Un-exciting. If you have stomach problems and cannot digest spicy, and seasoned food ....THIS IS YOUR SHIP !! In 7 days, leg of lamb showed up 3 times, RUBBER LOBSTER TAIL had one appearance. STEAK-SURPRISE, smothered with a whole lot of something-sauce happened twice. I did not have even one meal that I would say was REALLY good. They were all somewhere between Mildly Interesting and Not Bad! I will say that my Carnival food experiences were ALL very memorable. YEP ....every one !! And I a working class kinda guy that eats most of my meals in a hurry, so it's not like I am spoiled by a personal chef. Their food presentation was pretty good. CABIN ATTENDANT: Great ROOMS: small CASINO: If you are a blackjack gambler, find another ship! I do not know if this is a coming trend, and I hope not, but RCL does this..... * Split aces ...one card and NO double-down. * Split anything else ...no double-down. * BlackJack ..pays 6-5. These rules severely hurt the guest and drastically limit his/her ability to achieve the larger payoffs needed to survive a bad run of the cards. Very small table games area. Only ONE craps table, 2-3 regular Blackjack tables. One single-deck Blackjack table. I saw VERY little action in the casino, compared to other cruises. Not certain why, other than these types of rules. No real yelling and screaming going on here. It was kinda like being in the dining room ...rather quiet and un-memorable except for the losses. SHOPPING: My wife said the shopping was weak at best. I guess that must be true since she didn't buy much. She also said it was TOO expensive ... which surprises me, since I didn't know she paid attention to this concept. HMM-m-m ALL IN ALL ... I would ONLY go on RCL again if I won a trip, or if the deal was REALLY, REALLY cheap. I do plan to go on another trip soon back to Cozumel area, but I will most likely choose Carnival. I had ALL good experiences there ...AND ..their prices were much better!! Read Less

The Radiance is a Beautiful Ship. The service was the best throughout the ship. The shows were okay, have seen better on other cruise lines. The ship was spotless, someone is always around cleaning and making sure the ship shines. The dining room service was great, the food was okay. The food was much better in Portofino's, not to be missed if you have the chance. The tiramasu in Portofino's is like nothing I have ever had. The other restaurants were also very good. I thought the dining room food could have been better, but that is just my opinion. Alfonzo, our waiter was great... Our stateroom, 9500 was a balcony room and very cozy. Our room steward was friendly and always wanted to accommodate whatever we needed. The ship is filled with all kinds of entertainment, miniature golf, basketball, pool, gambling, bingo, movies, etc... you can always find something to do or just relax at the pool in the Solarium, which is just breathtaking...and so relaxing. The ports were great, Key West is great for just people watching if you don't want to any tours. Cozumel, lots to do if you like the water, snorkeling, diving, etc. don't forget to have a drink at Pancho's Backyard, go online to their website and print out a coupon for a free drink, one per person. I did not get off at Honduras, was not quite sure of the area. Grand Caymen was also very pricey and crowded, however it was the first time here and we did do a tour of the island that was lots of fun. The word is out, the Captain of the Ship is wonderful, handsome and has a voice that will make you get goosebumbs.... Hope this was somewhat informative to all... Enjoy your trip...Chris Florida Read Less

The crew staff was great The captain is a rambler and does not till you the truth Food was good but the menu was not extensive changing The ion shore trips are twice the price for the same trip if you pay on board The drinks package was a total rip off as are the bar prices $15 for a beer after a 18% tip and exchange rate. The exchange rate the ship gives you is poor All expenses add 18% as a tip that is not share with all crew only senior staff. You have to pay no opt out is given The islands you visit some have deals with the cruise line and they also over charge you at pine island the menu price for a beer is $8.5 but they charged us $12 then later in the day it increased to $15 because they could. The island only has 1 pub you can get to Basically the ship will rip you off all the way through They even floated around for a day so they could make sure we spent on the ship Read Less

We did the same cruise this time last year and are quite experienced cruisers, diamond plus. The ship is still quite attractive. Good points—- The Diamond and Concierge club benefits are still good and both hosts efficient The food is acceptable althoughMDR lunches a bit boring. Windjammer probably better for lunch. Breakfasts were good in MDR. The Filipino, Indonesian and Indian staff are great and are the best thing about this cruise line. Bad points—- The internet is slow. The activities and entertainment have gone very far downhill. There were very few headline acts on this or the previous back to back cruise we did to NZ and few were very good. Some nights there were no theatre shows, too many had old production shows which we have seen previously. One night the only show was a Love and Marriage game show. Usually the theatre was sparsely attended. The cruise director was poor, gabbled and spoke too fast. Some of her assistants doing trivia were also difficult to understand. Whether the decline in activities and entertainment were the fault of the CD or the Company cutting costs I know not. Embarkation and Disembarkation were great thanks to ship and Sydney terminal staff. Read Less

We’ve done many transatlantic and transpacific cruises, most of which offered many activities and good entertainment for the many sea days. Unfortunately, this 18-day transpacific cruise was sorely lacking in both entertainment and enrichments opportunities, and was a boring experience overall. This was made all the worse by inclement weather that forced us to spend a lot of time indoors. And the few entertainment events that were offered almost always conflicted with dining times. As for the ship itself, Radiance of the Seas is an older ship in great need of some basic refurbishment. The lounge chairs and theatre seating are badly worn (some with tears) and very uncomfortable. The deck floor of our balcony was all rust, and the balcony chairs extremely uncomfortable because of worn seat cushions. The ship’s cruise director was a complete amateur, curt and unfunny. He took great delight in telling us he was leaving on vacation after this cruise, and we were sorry he didn’t leave sooner. The two so-called “enrichment” speakers were equally amateurish and, no doubt, came at little cost to the cruise line. The good news: service overall and in all venues was excellent, and both the service and food in the MDR was very good. Unfortunately, the breakfast and lunch buffet were limited and mediocre at best, with many repeat offerings. Lastly, we were very disappointed at how slovenly many of the passengers were, and that the ship’s staff did not enforce their own dress codes. Men wore shorts and cutoff t-shirts at dinner in the main dining room even on evenings when “casual chic” was requested. When we complained, we were told that people interpret “casual” differently. We’ve had good experience with RCCL in general, but this sailing reflected a definite cut-back in overall quality and care. This sailing was not inexpensive, but definitely over-priced for what was provided and from a comfort standpoint, and will cause us to think twice about RCCL in the future. Read Less

Cheap, cheap, cheap! If you want even bottled water, pay up! You can buy different drink packages ranging from about $12-$70/day per person. If you don't, you can have water, tea, lemonade, or coffee. When disembarking on land excursions, there was a cruise employee offering bottles of water......but only if you paid extra for that package. When we were viewing Hubbard Glacier from the stern of the ship it was very chilly outside and a server came around with hot chocolate..........only for passengers who bought the refreshment package for $29/day/person. We chose not to pay these exorbitant prices, and we ended up feeling like have-nots. A person can still buy drinks per item, and my husband paid $56 for four drinks (including the mandatory 18% gratuity). We bought our own wine on board for the above reasons, and sometimes had difficulty getting wine glasses from the bartenders because they were afraid they would run out. Food in the Windjammer cafe and Cascades dining room was mediocre at best; service in the dining room was slow. The dining room employees were always working very hard, so my guess is that food services was not well run. I was told by another passenger the specialty restaurants (for an extra charge) were not very good. There was a speaker on how to get a flatter stomach, but he turned out to be selling his product, so it was really a sales pitch. The onboard entertainment was so-so, nothing great. The exercise room was ok, but some of the machines were broken and the doors to the outside of the ship were often broken. There is nothing state-of-the-art about the ship, except the prices. All of the servers and room attendants were very friendly and helpful. They work 7 days/week and many hours a day. My understanding is their wages are not that high compared to American standards. This means the thousands of dollars we spent are mainly going to the upper echelon employees and not to those doing the hard work. If you call Royal Caribbean customer service, be prepared for a different answer every time. Royal Caribbean did not communicate logistics of the land portion of our tour very well ahead of time. Every time I called to ask a question, I got vastly different answers. So Royal Caribbean is not spending money training and communicating with its customer service reps. Finally, part of our package included a transfer from the airport to hotel on the 1st night of our trip. I called and gave Royal Caribbean our flight info (several times in order to get to someone who understood what I was talking about), and called and confirmed the transfer the day of our flight. Even so, my husband and I were stranded at the airport at 11:45pm as no one showed to pick us up. When I asked the tour director, she was apologetic and called the company to see if we could be comped and was told no - we were listed as a no-show at the airport. Impossible. We looked all over baggage claim both inside and outside, and there was no one holding up a sign and no van that indicated it was part of a tour company. Our belief is that the driver didn't want to be at the airport at that late hour and didn't show, but claimed they were there. It would have cost the company nothing to comp us a couple of drinks, but they didn't. Again, cheap, cheap, cheap! Read Less

This was the first and last cruise I will do with Royal Caribbean. On formal nights very few dressed up mostly people just dressed in jeans and hoodies, one person looked like she had just come from the gym in her workout clothes. We did My Dining, big mistake. I have done a similar dining on other cruise lines and it was a lot better than this ship. My advise do not do My Dining go for the set times of either 5.30 or 8.00. The food in the main dining was awful, it tended to be the same food every night with a couple of variations and it tasted like mass produced frozen food that you can get in frozen food shops. I have been on cruises before the food on those cruises were al a carte and was the best food I have had. Some of the waiters in the main dining room were awful, rude and pushy. The entertainment was diabolical, the production shows were really poor and unprofessional the worst I have seen on cruises. The cabin we had was on deck 7 and was lovely and our cabin woman Maria was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The excursions were amazing this was the best part of the cruise. Embarkment was a nightmare, it took an hour to get on the ship which was surprising since everything is done online before hand. Once on the ship everything seemed disorganised, no clear instructions on where to go. Everyone just seem to congregate around the centrum and as everyone was sitting around with their hand luggage we assumed we could not get into our cabin as no one had instructed us otherwise. With other cruise lines this was made clear as we embarked the ship. On this ship I had to find someone and ask and this would have been nice to have found out this earlier. Our disembark was good as we had an excursion booked. Read Less

Trans-Pacific cruise as ships relocated to US Northwest. Normal RCI quality, i.e. excellent food and quality staff. We we disappointed that Rita’s restaurant has been closed as we used to enjoy sitting out eating guacamole / chips and sharing the grande margarita with friends (it would be nice to be able to get a pitcher of margaritas for sharing but bartender thought it was mitigate over-serving issues that have happened). The ports were only ok, generally a little on the boring side but guessing due to the last ship of the season. The ship was good shape although showing signs of external wear Horrible cabin location, it’s beneath the Windjammer and Izumi speciality restaurant. The room sounds like you’re in a bowling alley due to the carts in the restaurants above running over the stippled tile in the kitchen areas. It does subside around midnight until around 4:30 am, currently 4:21 am and the banging has started. Called several times and restaurant manager did state they would try to mitigate noise, unfortunately to no avail. Asked to be moved but was not accommodated although RCI did give coupon for small discount on future cruise. VOOM on this cruise was marginally above worthless. Using SpeedTest by Ookla, download speeds ranged from a high of 1.5 mbps down to a non-functional low but averaged at 0.55 mbps across the multiple occasions that I tested. Onboard Tech stated that it speeds is up to 4 mbps, subject to weather and sea conditions but even docked with clear skies the speeds were typically sub 1 mbps. Be warned, no refunds or recourse from RCI for poor VOOM service Read Less

My husband and I were on the recent reposition cruise from Australia to Honolulu. We usually love RC and are Diamond (now Diamond Plus) members. This ship is in a run down condition. One of the main elevators was not working over half the time causing a log jam at the elevators. In our cabin, the sink was cracked, and hot water was seldom available. Rust was prevalent almost everywhere. There was not enough room for the Diamond and up members. In order to find seating, one had to be at the longe at least an hour early. The food is getting worse and worse over the years. The same items were on the menu night after night. And to our dismay, they ran out of vanilla ice cream in the WindJammer. On the plus side, we seemed to have a new mattresses. Our neighbors, however had an old one and were very uncomfortable. Overall, we were very disappointed in a cruise we had been looking forward to. We will be trying other cruise lines in the future. Read Less

I loved New Zealand, scenery was beautiful, that was the only good part of my trip. This ship is old, smelly & tired looking. The water slides & climbing wall advertised were only open for an hour once a day on port days and an hour twice a day on sea days so it was near impossible to use these amenities unless you wanted to line up for a couple of hours for one go - not my idea of fun. My two teenage girls were bored out of their mind for the entire trip. There’s little for kids to do on this ship. The food was not good at all. The restaurants that you pay for were very good but the buffet was absolutely shocking, same food every day & not great at all. If I knew how cramped our balcony suite would be we would have paid extra for two suites. I was stuck sleeping in an extremely uncomfortable pull out lounge for 10 days which left me with neck that I was unable to turn to the right & a sore back. The actual beds were not much better. After having traveled on cruise ships in the past I was really looking forward to watching some shows however they were boring & clearly aimed at older people, not families. I was distraught when I walked into a poorly identifiable glass wall right next to some revolving doors on deck 12. It was a clear hazard yet the ships health & safety officer ridiculed me despite having to spend the whole morning with the doctor with suspicions of a concussion, a black eye and serious swelling - management Just didn’t care. I love cruises & New Zealand was great but I will never travel on this ship again. Read Less

First time ocean cruisers and it probably be our last. Travelled Royal Caribbean – Radiance of the Seas. No complaints with either the food or the room. Unfortunately, due to rough seas, outdoor experiences were not available for the days across to New Zealand and a day returning to Australia. Oh well, plenty to keep you entertained within the ship. The infrequent and non-current movies. The organised activities (Halloween for one) for 2000 odd people in the ‘Centrum’ (small central foyer of the ship). There was the talk from Adam Houlahan (which I’m sure the company did not vet prior to him presenting, and I hope he wasn’t paid). The up-sell was constant and off-putting for a ‘relaxing’ holiday. The cost of alcohol was excessive considering we were in international waters and not subject to duties. One Crown lager stubbie equated to $13.90 Aus once their 18% gratuities were added. I was really impressed, when I delivered to Guess Services on our departure, valuable jewellery from the previous room occupant, which had been left in our safe and had only been discovered. No receipt was given for the property handed in, and when asked for one, the request was denied. I advised the guest service officer that I required one as I did not want to be investigated/blamed when the owner attempted to locate their property. A few days after the cruise, I followed up with Royal Carribeen about the jewellery. There was no record of me handing it in and they could not describe the items I had given. Hmmm. Read Less

This was it first cruise and is likely to be the last. We left 4 hours late and traveled the inner passage at night, couldn't see anything. The ship is fundamentally a shopping mall - hotel on floats with gambling room, and an incredible assortment of bars (who drinks $60/day of alcohol?) Aside from one glacier view nothing but far land on one side and empty ocean on the other. We were transported from one tourist trap to the next, with villages doubling or tripling population as the ship comes in. A hassle to get in and out with security and room card (I understand they don't want anyone left stranded, especially those who drink $60/d alcohol!!) The presentation on board were poorly presented with low quality visuals. One experience was enough. Not interested in social games, bingo, arcade game or whatever. Very few opportunity for photography. Incessant push to buy non sense watches and the likes. Too much smoking! The good thing about such an enormous ship is that it is very stable and food was good. Otherwise a miserable experience Read Less

We chose RCI because we have sailed on them before and generally have good experiences. This however was not the case on the Radiance. From the time we got on the boat things were awful. The boat smelled like raw sewage when we first got on. I thought that it might have been Seward but as the cruise wore on I would still occasionally smell raw sewage. State room attendant was good. Main dining not so good. First day I had to ask for tea three times and bread twice. When I mentioned it to the head waiter he took care of the problem. Our waiter, however, had about 15 guests to serve and he was always behind. Most of the other tables had dessert before we had our entree. Not his fault he just had too much to do. The Radiance is an older and smaller boat and doesn't have the amenities of the larger ships, no promenade, very few, if any after hours dining like the bigger ships. They did, however, have a lot of specialty dinning that they pushed at you from all directions. I believe they had five specialty restaurants, and one after hours snack station. Windjammer was always crowded as usual. Always hard to find a seat during peak hours. On most of the ships we have been on dining is at 6:30 and 8:30 with shows at 8:30 and 10:30. On the Radiance the dining is 6 and 8 with shows at 7 and 9. 8:00 diners have to go to the show at 7:00. I prefer the old way with dining at 8:30 and the show after. On the Radiance it would not make much difference because the shows were pretty bad anyway. We walked out of two of them. They have self leveling pool tables on board, which seems kind of nice until you tried to play on them. Most of the time they were broke, balls were missing and the tables locked in one position. We did the cruise tour with 5 days in Alaska before the cruise. The tour part was far superior to the cruise part. We both decided that we would never said on the Radiance again. Read Less
