Sail Date: December 16, 2007
Ship: Radiance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This ship had the best experience for a first-time traveler on the ocean or gulf. Everyone of the staff were pleasant and helpful. I particularly enjoyed the shows as much as the creations that were made from towels every day and placed on the bed.

The tour of the highlights of the island took us along one side of it, and it would have been nice to spend some time going into the culture of the island and seeing some of the old places.
Don't Miss: The Blow-Hole

We had a great narrator on the tour. She taught us a little about the dialect the people use as she showed us special places. It would be good to focus more on the historical parts of the island and minimize the emphasis on shopping.
Don't Miss: The Rose Hill mansion

We took the tour of the Mayan Ruins. The ride out was very informative because the narrator gave us a good idea of the history. However, when we arrived and started the tour, there was a lot of time used in standing looking while the guide talked. We didn't have enough time to see everything.
Don't Miss: The Tulum Mayan Ruins

The Little White House was exceptional. Seeing the Hemmingway cats was special. Having a chance to just wander among the community was good for exercise as well as picture-taking.
Don't Miss: The tour of the Little White House and history of Truman there.

Pros: The variety of things to do

Cons: There was not enough time to see everything that was happening on the ship and take tours too
