Great embarkation, good cruise, disastrous disembarkation

|

I was really surprised at how easy embarkation was, after having stood in long lines with other cruise lines, this was really easy if you had done the electronic "pre-check in". Great idea RCCL, keep it up. The ...

Ship is old but comfortable

We chose this cruise mainly for the itinerary and knew the ship was old and smaller than others. We like the smaller size ship and wish cruise lines would stop making them bigger and bigger. The itinerary was ...

Relaxing Way to Reach Australia

We chose this cruise as a way to get to Australia in a relaxing way without jet lag. This was our 7th cruise and 5th with RCL. We enjoyed the cruise but did find both stretches of 5 sea days a little challenging. ...

Hawaii to Sydney Relocation

This was a very enjoyable cruise, we chose it so we could spend some time in Hawaii before the cruise and also see some of Tahiti, however the long sea day stints were a bit too long with nothing much to do on board ...

All in all a great holiday on Radiance

Overall great vacation but ....

The itinerary was perfect. The weather until we sailed to Vancouver was warm and beautiful - and let's face it, sailing to Canada in early May was meant to be chilly. The ship was overall, in good shape. I love the ...

Great itinerary; great staff

The itinerary is what sold us on this cruise, and it met our expectations for the days in Hawaii. We loved having 2 days on the major islands, which gave us a great opportunity to see Hawaii, Kauai, and Maui. The 5 ...

Overall Good Cruise

This was our 13th cruise with RC and our second on the Radiance. The ship was in good condition (NOT a rust bucket as one person described it). The cruise can be divided into three phases. #1 Getting on the ship in ...

Great Entertainment, OK Food, Meh Spa

The Cruise Director, Steve Davis, was over the top good. Still can't believe he taught 40 passengers to do Michael Jackson's Thriller zombie dance, which they actually performed to the music as a coordinated group ...

Cabin was great larger than most port hole cabins, would of been nice to have another port than Picton straight after Wellington didnt get any real feeling for NZ from those 2 ports. My Time was a bit of a issue and ...

Very decent cruise; just missing some of the WOW factor.

We boarded easily in Honolulu without any difficulty even though a trainee checked us in (under close supervision by a manager). Unfortunately, after entering the ship, there was no one accessible to guide us-thank ...

Hawaii to Sydney

In our late 40's (age wise) we found very little to do on this cruise ship after 11pm at night. We really only had one area to go to after that time. For a few nights the DJ (Yuki) played the duff duff music as well ...
