  1. I won’t cruise again until there is a vaccine. There are too many things beyond your control on a cruise ship, and the environment is too contained. We’ve also see there is no guarantee local authorities would even let you dock if someone were to test positive, or get sick.
  2. Having done a back to back cruise last year on the Harmony of the Seas I can say without reservation the Radiance was a far more enjoyable experience for two experienced cruisers in their mid(ish) 60's that don't relish being around over 1,000 kids. We tried the "mega ship as the destination" thing and the" ship within a ship suite level" thing, and it left us wanting. A lot. Then a destination wedding of friends on the Big Island made us reexamine RCI.

RCI ships on the list are: Majesty Of The Seas built 1992 Grandeur Of The Seas built 1996 Rhapsody Of The Seas built 1997 Radiance Of The Seas built 2001 Brilliance Of The Seas built 2002 I've got to say sale of the Majesty didn't surprise me... but the Radiance and Brilliance did.
