Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: January 05, 2008
Ship: Radiance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Review SummaryOverall, the conditions on the ship were fine. Our bathroom (and heard comments from several other passengers about the same problem) smelled like a latrine. The smell was so bad at times it was hard to spend any time at all in the bathroom. This problem, while brought up to our steward, was never adequately addressed.
This was our third Royal Caribbean cruise and we found that the quality of the food was not up to the standards we have come to expect from Royal Caribbean. Also, this was the first cruise we have been on that ran out of food items like 2% milk, yogurt, pina colada mix (these are the things I am aware of). We would not book a trip again on this ship.
We were impressed by the measures taken by the ship to battle the spread of infectious illnesses with the use of sanitary wipes. They were present in all the dining rooms (and handed out) and at the gangplank when returning from ports of call. I also noticed housekeeping wiping down handrails.
