Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines
Radiance of the Seas
December 4, 2005
Just arrived back from a wonderful 7 days on the Radiance. My sixth cruise. The ship's decor is beautiful,and everything kept very clean. There is some wear on some areas of the carpeting, but the ship is going to be refurbished in February, 2006 to update some of the worn items. But you have to look to find these. Overall, staff always pleasant and greetings are given with a smile. The food was very good. I thought the main courses (meat, fish, chicken) were better than Celebrity, so we decided not to even try the specialty restaurants.
Entertainment about what you expect on a cruise ship - sometimes just "over the top" with the dance routines and costumes. We took a balcony cabin for the first time and would never travel without one again. Just fabulous to sit on the balcony with breakfast, have the ocean breezes come into the cabin and also have privacy when you want it. We had cabin 8524. A recommendation would be to select a cabin close to the elevators as otherwise you can have quite a walk. We did not meet any fellow cruisers who were not enjoying themselves. All in all a very comfortable, beautiful ship and a great vacation.
