Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by Peggy Monahan
- Sail Date: March 2005
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Our special-needs 10-year old son (autism) had a good time, and never fussed about being dropped off. But the amenities for kids and number of staffers in the kids program (Adventure Ocean) were not optimum on this mid-size ship.
That said, the service is what makes RC #1 for us. But it is not white-gloved and stuffy. Our dinner waiter was cheerful and enthusiastic, having requested a transfer from one of the exclusive, extra fee dining rooms, because he missed the fun of the main dining room. Joselito was a delight! 2 examples of going the extra mile: 1) Our first night, the head waiter called up to Adventure Ocean to extend our son for after-hours sitting because we were not yet finished with our late-seating dinner at 10 PM.
2) a nameless waiter in the casual buffet dining room (the Windjammer), took it upon himself to track down a box of Frosted Flakes for our son (after I simply asked if they had any), found our table, and presented it along with a bowl, spoon and milk! OK, so maybe I impress easily, but I thought it was great.
Can't wait until our next one! PS, after doing 2 trips to the Western Caribbean, we much preferred the ports on the Eastern Caribbean cruise, esp. St. Thomas and St. Maarten.
