Originally we had booked the Sept. 2015 cruise to Hawaii, but it was cancelled and RCI was nice enough to give us a $400.00 OBC. So we decided to go early, Sept. 2014. Flight We booked all of the flight arrangements separately from RCI, ... Read more

I'm sure the ship may have been a Rhapsody at some point but it needs to be retired. Hawaii and Canada were lovely and was the only saving grace. I'm not sure why RCL has invested in trying to put a band-aid on this boat instead of just ... Read more

We have been loyal RCL cruisers for many years. We tried other cruise lines and always come back to RCL for the WOW factor. We booked this cruise for the destination and that is just what we got. A boat ride with poor meal selection, ... Read more

Sailed the Rapsody to Alaska two years ago. The experience other than the entertainment was a total delight. This sailing was an utter disappointment. I had bragged the Rapsody up to our companions to the extent that |I was embarrassed. ... Read more

My last few cruises on RCI have been less than satisfactory, but the Rhapsody was outstanding. I believe a ship experience reflects the Captain and in our case Captain Rob was one of the best I've sailed with. His dry humor made his noon ... Read more

We were so excited for this cruise! Paid A LOT ($10.000+) for this as it was a celebration of my retirement from education. Had a suite where the only one higher was the Royal Suite. The suite was fine....comfy bed, it was roomy. Here is ... Read more

Absolutely no complaints on this cruise/ship. Staff was wonderful. We always tipped extra as they deserved it. Pre-cruise stay at Hilton Hawaiian Village was very nice. Paradise. Nicest part of the beach. Didn't seem crowded at all. Clean ... Read more

We had a great time, with nothing to complain about....well, ok, it rained more than I'd have liked, but that was about it. The ship was beautiful. We've cruised every class but Oasis, and for the smaller scaled ships, we found Radiance to ... Read more

Reflecting on this cruise, I must say that my family and I are never sailing on the Radience and are skeptical on even sailing with Royal Caribbean again. We are Platinum members of the Crown and Anchor Society, and found that there ... Read more

Having just read "MADMACS" review I thought I would give him some insight into his Hawaiian cruise in September as we have just done the same one in reverse. We cruised with Rhapsody of the Seas but I think Radiance may be a better ... Read more

My title reflects our previous cruise to the Mediterranean on the Brilliance. Before this cruise, that one was my hands down favorite. This may sound corny, but words truly cannot describe what a fabulous time we had on the Radiance of the ... Read more

This was a 10 day cruise to Hawai'i. The first five days were spent at sea getting to Hawai'i from Vancouver. The seas were quite calm for the entire voyage. We thought maybe in the open ocean seas would be rough, but they were not. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise from Vancouver to Honolulu to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary due to timing and embarkation port (we live in Vancouver). Embarkation was very quick. We arrived at the port by provate vehicle around 10:30 a.m. ... Read more

We did enjoy our cruise, it is hard not too, and plan to sail with RCCL at least one more time as I believe this can not be the new standard. However the level of service and general atmosphere was just not what we have become accustomed ... Read more
