Always wonderful!

Sail Date: December 2013
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
We are just back from yet another perfect RCCL cruise on board the Radiance!

Because we enjoyed our journey from Sydney to Hawaii so much last year, we were anxious to see if this shorter cruise would be as good!

Well no need for concern as it was just excellent!

We boarded at 11am and it encountered no queues and went straight to the Windjammer for early lunch. We then decided to go for a walk around the Quay, and were back around 2pm and went straight to our room! We were on Level 9 in a balcony! Our steward, Elmer, did a wonderful job every day of maintaining our cabin.

We booked late dinner and had a table just for 2, as per our request, with waiters Levison & Ronald, who greeted us with smiles and couldn't do enough to please us. Our food was exceptional with the most tender meat I've ever had on a cruise ship! Dinner nightly was always a highlight of our day!

My husband snorkelled at each port, booking all 3 tours through the More ship. Each went smoothly with no complaints.

Can't wait to cruise again with RCCL - especially now that smoking will no longer be permitted on balconies. Excellent decision....nothing worse than having a smoker next door and being smothered in smoke in our cabin, which has blown inside! We book a balcony cabin to enjoy fresh air - not smoke!!! Less
