Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by trotters2203
- Sail Date: March 2016
- Destination: Australia & New Zealand
The itinerary was good with the exception of Port Hedland which was of little interest to most people and had little to commend it as a port of call for a cruise ship.
Bali was cancelled due to security concerns and replaced with an extra day at Cairns where we could happily have seen even more time.
All the local guides at the ports of call were very helpful.
The ship is a little tired but we knew this in advance and it is soon due for a refit.
So why only an average rating?
The food was only average at best but the main problem was the impression that profit was the main concern.
The wifi at $20 per day for a slow intermittent service is ridiculous, the cost of excursions is exorbitant as is the cost of shuttle buses. If a company advertises Brisbane on the published itinerary the passengers should be taken to Brisbane, not charged $25 for a shuttle bus.
Also most so called seminars were an excuse to sell over priced hair and fitness products etc.
The products sold in the constant shop 'sales' are mostly cheaper in my local shopping centre.
We always pick cruises by the itinerary and so may choose RCL in the future and would take the above points into account when deciding if the price was right but they would not be the first choice.
