Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by pegatha
- Sail Date: March 2006
- Destination: Western Caribbean
We found the dining to be very good. The Windjammer buffet provided adequate choices for all three meals. Snacks in the afternoon were good as well. We loved our dining room experience as well as the food there. Our servers worked very well together and always had us out within 90 minutes. We had the main dinner seating which left plenty of time in the evening for activities. We only went to the Sea View cafe once and I wasn't that impressed.
I will say that I was displeased with the shore excursions offered by Royal Caribbean. While we enjoyed 2 of the excursions we took, they left a lot out of the descriptions mainly relating to the amount of travel time to the excursion. Our Martha Brae rafting excursion included a ride over some of the worst roads I've ever been on for 90 minutes each way. The rafting was very peaceful and relaxing but the journey to and from was not. The 7 Mile Beach with lunch in Grand Cayman was horrible. We arrived at the property and they must have had 500 people crammed into a beach area the size of a postage stamp. We didn't even bother to stay there. What a waste of money.
We never had problems getting on and off the ship even though we only docked at one port. The tender operations worked very well. The shows were nothing to write home about except for the Beatles show. That was absolutely wonderful.
Our cabin steward and all other staff we encountered were excellent. Always helpful and friendly.
All in all we had a wonderful time and would recommend this ship to anyone.
