We wanted to do something a little shorter than 7 days. We live in Tampa, FL which made getting to and from the ship a 20 minute adventure. The ship was large enough to enjoy the numerous public spaces, but at an approximate 2,000 passenger count, you never had any wait times to enjoy the various activities. The Radiance Class is our favorite size ship. Not big fans of the floating cities with 5,000 plus passengers on board. All of the staff were eager to please and we were always met with a smiling face and warm greeting. The ship was in excellent condition, all public the areas were clean and up to date. The sofa in our JS had some slight signs of wear, but overall the cabin was clean and up to date. The best part for my wife, was the walk in closet. We enjoyed the ship so much, that we have booked the same cruise again for New Years Eve.

Perfect size ship, Great staff

Cabin Review

Cabin 1598
We had a JS at the rear of the ship, just before the rear facing suites. This gave us an extra large balcony, which had room for the normal table and chairs, but also included a lounge chair.
