You will find there are times when it tastes good, but most of the time it’s relatively bland and I am not even talking food. Let me explain and I will also throw in some tips to help you get a little more spark from this expensive 2 star boat ride. This may be too long for a lot of you…so I will put some TLDR at the bottom to get you what you need to know. For the rest of you…

First and fore most, read everything they hand you. On their site. On their app. In your state room. Everything. There are a tun of micro scams stuffed into every package. That is not indicative to Radiance. It’s a Carnival thing in general. Packages make it cheaper. But they are going to drip dry you if you don’t pay attention.

The first thing you absolutely need to note is that when you booking on this cruise. You can not book solo. You can go solo. But no matter the attendance you must book two or more. Everything you do from that initial purchase is multiplicative and there’s no way around that far as I could tell. With a small few exceptions.

Ensenada was okay. Our guide was super dope. Zip line course was cool. Blow hole wasn’t worth the trip but the booze and food was good so, you know. It was what it was.
