Hi fellow cruisers. In April of 2011, I booked 48 people to go on the Radiance of the Seas sailing out of Port Canaveral. Upon our welcome to the Ship, which was very beautifully appointed and made you feel welcome, we proceeded to the Lido Deck and grabbed some grub. After which, we proceeded to our assigned cabins. Soon after we were in our Cabin, our room steward showed up and greeted us with ...

My wife and I flew in from Omaha, NE to cruise from Tampa FL to Cozumel and Costa Maya for our honeymoon. Long story short, our room flooded and it took them the entire trip to clean up the mess. The compensation they offer is not at all satisfying. We don't want to cruise again any time soon (we also don't have the time in the next few years either...we're both in grad school). We've written ...

We decided to book this cruise for our honeymoon mainly because it left on a Monday. It was his first cruise but my second.We flew into Tampa on Sunday evening. We took a taxi to our hotel (Hilton Garden Inn Ybor). The hotel was very nice and clean. They had a free shuttle to the port. It took about 5-10 minutes to get from the hotel to the port.Embarkation was very quick and smooth. We ...

I took my daughter on the Radiance of the Seas to celebrate her 18th birthday. We're both sun lovers, so the 2 days at sea was appealing to both of us. The ship is beautiful! Upon registration, we were informed that our cabin had been switched to a different deck, but the registration agent had no idea why. Upon locating our cabin, we were pleasantly surprised that we had been upgraded to a ...

Second time cruisers just back from a lovely five day western Caribbean jaunt aboard Radiance of the Seas. Our first go with Royal Caribbean after a very successful Celebrity voyage only four months ago. We definitely got the cruise bug. Planning Christmas aboard Holland America.Vague on ship sizes. Radiance is big but not overwhelming, inside or out.Took CC advise on rear suite stateroom. ...

Radiance of the Seas was cool. It was our 6th cruise, third with RC and we enjoyed it. A short 5 night cruise out of Tampa was the perfect ticket for some relaxing and fun. Service was attentive and good. Meals in the main dining room were ok, but the service was great. Enjoyed two specialty restaurants and each were good choices as the food and service were very good. The buffet food was ...

Bottom line up front (BLUF) - The Radiance is a beautiful, well-run ship which features a wide variety of functional interior and exterior venues, ample deck space and beautiful views. The opulent, yet elegant design featured a rich decor accented with fabulous works of art. The crew was always friendly, welcoming and determined to provide an excellent experience for the guests. My most ...
