This was a perfect weekend getaway for us and our friends. Our friends were first time cruisers and I booked a short trip for us so they could see if they liked it. Needless to say I think we will be going on many more cruises in our lifetime as this was a great cruise.
Embarkation was the simplest and fastest I have ever done. (Way better than Miami! ) Everyone at the port of Tampa was so friendly. We arrived at 1045 and on the ship in about a half an hour.
The ship was beautiful! The radiance class is my favorite out of all of Royals classes. So much light! Everything was clean and well taken care of for an "older" ship. It was the perfect size for our friends as its big without being too big!
