Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by niceday

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Overall this was a good Cruise. Some adjustments need to made by Royal Caribbean to enhance the Cruising of future patrons.

1. Bands were in the Centrum. This was somewhat disappointing, no area to Dance & not enough seating. Should have been in the Colony Club, where there was plenty of seating & a large dance floor. It remained empty on most nights.

2.The Dog House was a waste of space. Hot dogs were able to be obtained from the Windjammer.

I noticed that it was not patronised very often. Only a suggestion, why not convert to say a "Johnny Rockets" or something similar. Maybe dress it up a bit.

3. Children (unsurpervised ) were allowed to play on the pool tables as young as 8, when a sign clearly states minimum age 18. This was every day. I am happy for them change the age limit, however some children do need supervision as tables can easily be ripped or damaged.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin attendant was excellent. Cabin was kept neat & tidy at all time. He was extremely friendly and made lots of towel animals for us.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Great Island Circle Tour

Tour was good, however we seemed too rushed at the stops. On one, we waited to the toilet, then it was straight on the Bus & didn't get a chance to look at anything. Maybe less stops more time at each.

Pearl Harbor

Need more advice on the fact we needed to leave our bags on the bus ( with passports etc in them)

Organisation of the shuttle buses was extremely poor. There were not enough regular Buses. It took us 45 minutes to get on, standing in the sun for that long was rediculous.

Need to get their act together & learn from our experience at Picton. (no waiting)


Loved this place. Would have been even better if it weren't so cold.

Buses were organised & left Wellington looking like a 3rd world country instead of a Captal City.
