Radiance of the Seas - Western Caribbean

Sail Date: January 2004
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
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. More

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 Less
