Embarking on the ship took a while this trip due to the thorough cleaning they had to do because of the stomach illnesses that ran rampant through the ship the previous week. Once they opened up the ship, it went very quickly. Our room was a typical balcony room. The beds were not comfortable in the least, very thin mattresses and my feet hung over the end. I'm only 5'7", I can't imagine how ...

We had a wonderful cruise on Radiance. It was our first time on a Radiance class ship and she did not disappoint. It was my fourth cruise, girlfriend's second, all with RCI. We flew in the day before, stayed at the Radisson downtown where we have stayed before..great views of the port. We spent the afternoon and evening at Bayside. We did not use cruise air or transfers (lesson learned a long time ...

Radiance of the Seas. April 16 2006. Nice ship enjoyed very much. Asked for table for 2 at booking, 9 months in advance. Did not get it. Asked head waiter the first night to change our table and he would not accommodate. Told me to come back first thing next morning. I did and again he said no. Very rude. I did sign for tips to be added to cruise bill so I wouldn't have to worry about that. ...

This was our first cruise, we were in heaven from the moment we got to the pier. We had booked a suite so there was no waiting to get on we showed our papers and were on the ship. Arrived a day early to assure no problems, booked our own hotel saved a lot of money. Used a limo service, Ace Transportation, to go from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami. Only cost $65 vs the cab which would cost $85. We were ...

This was our second cruise with Royal Caribbean. We found the ship to be in superb condition. The check in process literally took 10 minutes. We flew to Fort Lauderdale and used Royal Caribbean transfer to Miami. All transportation was arranged through Royal Caribbean and everything went flawlessly. The ship was late sailing due to a generator problem but it did not affect the cruise at all ...

Arrived in Miami a day before our cruise. Highly recommended so you're not as rushed and tired for boarding the ship. Embarkment for us was great due to booking a suite we went into a special boarding room for the first time and were on the ship at 11am. Booked a "grand suite" and loved the size of the room. Patricia was our room steward and was superb. Very friendly and accommodating. Well ...

Great time despite Royal Caribbean. We sailed with our adult children and grandchildren ages 1, 4, and 7. We chose Royal Caribbean because they had connecting rooms which Princess [our favorite] did not offer. First the good-- Boarding the ship with the SetSail Pass was a snap and a great idea. The children's program was better than great...We could not get the 4 and 7 year olds to leave at ...

A little background - I am 23 years old, a graduate student working on my Ph.D. My girlfriend (also 23) and I had been planning this cruise since Feb, 2005. We had cruised together on Majesty of the Seas in June of 2004, and had a fantastic time. We were attracted to this Radiance cruise primarily because of length of the cruise (our previous longest was 4 nights, this one was 7) and price (booked ...

We decided to book our second cruise (our first was on Celebrity's Millennium) on the Radiance of the Seas. My first sight of the ship was breathtaking. Day 1 was Super Bowl Sunday. Being from Maine I was rooting for the good team, the New England Patriots. We watched the Super Bowl in the Aurora theatre which was beautiful. Unfortunately, the ship did not leave until 2:00am because of engine ...
