Radiance of the Seas -- 16 September 2011

Background Information

We were booked for this cruise (YVR to HNL with port calls in Kona, Lahaina and Nawiliwili) and also the following one (HNL to SYD with port calls in Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora and Auckland). I injured my right knee the day we boarded and, after visiting the on board acupuncturist, developed a serious staph infection on my right calf. At the STRONG suggestion of the two ship's physicians, we canceled the second cruise and left the ship in Honolulu. I got some interesting insights into traveling while disabled and will write about that at the end of this review.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin E2

The extra large balcony is a real plus for this cabin. There is some loss of privacy because the divider becomes railing height about three feet from the rail and there is exposure to views from above but we didn't really find this to be a problem.

The location is close to the forward elevators/stairs and we didn't notice any extra noise from the theater.
