Hi fellow cruisers.

In April of 2011, I booked 48 people to go on the Radiance of the Seas sailing out of Port Canaveral. Upon our welcome to the Ship, which was very beautifully appointed and made you feel welcome, we proceeded to the Lido Deck and grabbed some grub. After which, we proceeded to our assigned cabins. Soon after we were in our Cabin, our room steward showed up and greeted us with the standard greeting. Since I am in a handicap scooter, I have several questions concerning my getting around. We checked out the balcony and was a bit disappointed as our cabin was situated where the lifeboats were anchored to the decking. Our course, in case of an emergency, we felt safe, inasmuch as all we had to do was hop in one and be on our merry way. LOL. The big drawback was the view was not inviting al all as we could only see out to sea instead of what what below us.

The staff was quite helpful and especially the entertainment crew. Kudoos and a shout out go to Josh, who was or is the Assitant cruise director. He was very helpful and a blast to be with. Very friendly, very outgoing and a all around good guy, contrary to the cruise director himself.

Cabin Review

Cabin very nicely appointed and very accessible for me as there are ramps leading into the bathroom and to the balcony. I could even have rode into the shower if my apparatus was not electric. There was a seat for me to sit on while I was showering, which I used. The beds weren't as comfortable as I would have like, however, right after our cruise, the ship received new mattresses. We had two twin beds, a sofa and chair and of course a vanity type desk. Closest was spacious and nicely laid out except for the safe. We kept hitting ourselves on the safe when we would bend down to get. I would suggest putting the safe a little higher or elsewhere, where it can be easily reached by a handicapped person who cannot get out of their chair.
