Western Caribbean Cruise

Sail Date: March 11, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is relatively new and in good shape. The crew members were all very friendly and accommodating. The dining room service was excellent, but the food was merely good. The food court had a wide selection of items for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but was closed after 9:00 pm generally. There were two midnight buffets during the cruise--one was poolside and one was in the main dining room. The gym was large and well equipped with cycling, jogging, stair machines, etc. Entertainment was very good in the Aurora theater, but the schedule varied almost every night. On the first night of the cruise there was only one performance at 7:30 pm, and those in the first dinner seating were not done with dinner in time to attend. The Captain was a real character.

Pros: Friendliness of the crew

Cons: Food court was not open continuously

Recommends Radiance of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food quality was average. Availability of the food court was limited. The food court was the only place to get a cup of coffee or iced tea unless you wanted a specialty coffee from Seattle's Best at extra charge.
Ship Quality
Similar in layout to other large ships on other lines.
Excellent shows, but you really had to watch the schedule as it changed almost every day
Cabin / Stateroom
Comfortable and well laid out
Service and Staff
Always very friendly where ever you met them.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
We took an excursion to Dunn's River Falls and Ochos Rios.
Don't Miss: Dunns River Falls
Cozumel, Mexico
We didn't actually go into Cozumel as we took an excursion to Tulum (ancient Mayan ruins).
Don't Miss: Tulum is fascinating
George Town, Grand Cayman
There were 8 cruise ships with over 20,000 people visiting on one day. There are no piers, so all of them were tendered in, which resulted in massive lines at the dock to get back on ship. The local organizers of the excursions were very disorganized.
Don't Miss: Swimming with the sting rays
Key West, Florida
Interesting to see.
