Many thanks for the great pictures! I think these must be about the first good ones on the web that were taken on board.

I hope you don't mind - I'd already put a link to your page on this thread, but anyone who hasn't seen that may be interested in some of the other links on it to other pictures from the ship's Ems passage.

Thanks so much for the pics! I knew someone out there would have them early, or was very hopeful that they would! LOL You've made our day, we were wondering if the solarium pool was going to be as nice as the other Radiance class, & it looks like it is. The hard part now will be waiting until Nov. Thanks again!
