We chose this cruise because we like the Radiance class ships and for the port intensive itinerary. Here is a recap of our cruise and final thoughts after returning.

Recap & Final thoughts:

Pre Cruise stay: 2 nights at Condado Ocean Club. Premium Oceanview room. We really liked this hotel. It was clean and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. The view from the room was amazing & honestly the main reason I booked. Pool & beach area was awesome. They give you 2 free drink vouchers for the hotel bar and 15% off coupon for the store in the lobby. Within walking distance, There was a ton of food choices, liquor stores, shopping, including a CVS & Walgreens too for those pre cruise necessities. Walgreens also had wine and beer for the hotel room or if you need to pickup wine for carryon to the ship. The hotel restaurant was really good. Cost was more than we would usually spend for a normal 1 night pre cruise stay but because we wanted to spend a whole day in San Juan we chose this hotel for beach and pool access with a ocean view.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite

Grand Suite. On the hump next to the royal suite. Loved this cabin. It’s right outside the centrum elevator bank & stairwell which was super convenient. There was noise at night from centrum activity/music etc. I would take that into consideration if you are light sleeper & like to go to bed early. It didn’t bother us at all but there were times we noticed it. The balcony is a bit bigger and shaped differently because it’s on the hump but because of the shape the more forward balconies are clearly visible. I can see how some would want more privacy but the view was amazing. There was 1 lounger, 2 chairs and a table on the balcony. The sliding doors were a big double door that I liked. Everything in the cabin was in good working order.
