I cruised on Radiance of the Seas Jan/Feb 2008. It was the nicest vacation ever. We flew down the day before just in case the weather was bad. Boarding went smoothly. They were very organized. The ship was beautiful. We had an inside cabin. It was nice. We didn't spend alot of time in the room, so it was plenty of room. Our first port was key west. We went off on Duval Street on our own since we had been there before, we new where to go. Don't pay for the excursions here...you can just get off the ship and go on your own. Everything is very close. We walked Duval St to the southern most point and back. Next port was Cozumel. Here we did the playa mia beach excursion. It was very nice. Was only $29 and you just had to take a taxi to the beach, which was like $14...if there is more than four people in your group...stay together if you all go in the same van taxi...its only $20 total for everyone. Next port was grand cayman. Here we did the swimming with the stingrays. This was also good and was $45. When we came back, we did some shopping as all of the shops are close and within walking distance. Next port was Jamaica. This place was scary. People are rude and we didn't want to deal with that so we did an excursion to breeze's resort. It included open bar and food at the resort along with the transportation there and also had sailboats, glass bottom boat ride, all of which is included. We thought it was a little pricey...was $98 a person, but if you don't want to take a chance on going on your own, it was a nice excursion. Overall, our trip was great and we would definitely go again!
