Radiance Disappointment

This cruise did not start out good. We embarked in Tampa upon checking in we learned of RCCL new point system. This was our anniversary cruise and we were to make diamond status, we learned that we are considered emerald. This was a disappointment, but understood. Sailing was pushed back to 11pm,so the shops and casino didn't open until the next day. Our Junior Suite was nice good size and the ...

My husband and I have taken 18 cruises aboard Princess, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and NCL ships, to the Caribbean, Alaska, the Baltic,as well as the Mediterranean from the Canary Islands to Egypt. So we are experienced cruisers. On 17 ships we ate most of our dinners in the main dining rooms and enjoyed them. On the Radiance, we ate there the first two nights, were appalled, and never ate there ...

This was our second time on the lovely Radiance of the Seas! Its not to big, not too small. Like everyone says, its a beautiful ship. We had a wonderful time. All the staff and crew are very friendly. We booked a GS. Loved it. Great for our family. Only issue was that our kids prefer not to share the pull-out couch. The cabin steward brought us a roll-out cot(very uncomfortable) and folded it up ...

We are a family of 5. My wife and I, a daughter 17, son 14, and daughter 4 went on this cruise. All but my son have cruised before, all on RCI. Sailing was 3/15 through 3/23. We visited San Juan, St Thomas, St Martin, Antigua, and Nassau. We arrived two days before departure to keep airfare for the cruise reasonable due to spring break. We stayed the Sheraton Yankee Clipper in Fort Lauderdale. She ...

My husband and I (in our 30's) were lucky enough to be on the Radiance for the March 9, 2008 Eastern Caribbean sailing. We had a wonderful time, and are disappointed to be back in the "real world" where we have to pour our own wine and make our own bed. Day 1: Embarkation Embarkation was a breeze. We walked right into a large holding room where we were given a group ticket number 3. As ...

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary on this cruise. We have not taken a cruise before, but have many friends who have. This cruise line and ship were highly recommended by our travel agent. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale the night before the cruise left and stayed at the Ramada Airport. Our experience here was not good and unfortunately we had a very restless night. I would not recommend ...

So far RCCL is my favorite line but I now have a favorite ship. I did some smaller ships, sovereign and grandeur and a couple of bigger ships, mariner and explorer. some were too small some were too big, radiance is just right. Mind you any ship I am on is great, but if I had to choose, it would be Radiance. Embarkation was quick and easy. We stayed in a GS so we had a priority ticket. When they ...

We drove to Fort Lauderdale from Melbourne early on the 22nd, arriving about 10 a.m. Parking was easy, though a little inconvenient for pedestrians. DH brought his mobility scooter, so I got dropped off with the luggage and he parked. The luggage handlers were nice and efficient; we tipped $1 per bag for 3 bags. Boarding was almost immediate and quite simple and fuss-free. Our carry-on is a ...

This was our 11th cruise and first on Royal Caribbean. Our other 10 cruises have all been on Princess. As in all cruises there were things that were great and other things that were disappointing. First let me say that the Radiance of the Seas is a beautiful ship and even far exceeded my expectations. We liked all the public rooms on the ship and even felt many were more attractive then Princess ...
