Radiance Reviews!!

Recommended Posts


Just booked Radiance 12/5/04, don't see a lot on this board about this ship, has anyone cruised on her? Please tell me about it, how was the food, entertainment, service? She looks like a beautiful ship. Has anyone been in any of the Junior Suite's on her? Appreciate any information. Thanks

We sailed on the Radiance a few months ago and we had a great time, truly a beautiful ship. Food and service were very good. No complaints about the cruise at all. Entertainment was about the same as most other ships, mediocre at best.




Donuts, is there anything they can't do....

Loved the Radiance! We had just a standard outside cabin. Entertainment was lame. RCI seems to be lacking in theis area lately.

The staff was outstanding! Friendly and always said hello, the wait staff knew and used our names from the first night, had our beverage of choice at the table within minutes of being seated and we never had to ask for a thing. Seaview cafe was great with limited hours that varied by port and sea days, we enjoyed the Windjammer outdoor seating.

My 2 favorite spots on the ship were the Atrium and the Solarium.

You have a great time on the Radiance!

We have a personal planning page on the Radiance of the Seas, which has many Radiance of the Seas links to photo albums, personal cruise websites, Chops & Portofino menus, Compass, and a number of posted reviews. We continue to update the page:

We are getting together an "all girls" cruise on the Radiance for that sailing. I tried starting a roll call, but didn't get any response. So far, we have 6 going. I have already signed up two of us for the Meet and Mingle. I'll go look for the roll call!
