a great trip

Sail Date: April 12, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We were 1st time cruisers and have to say the ship and the staff on the radiance of the sea was above our expectations. We were the last group to go around cape horn as carribean cruise lines has dropped this from its list. The day we rounded the cape it was clear and sunny (cool ) and the ocean was as calm as you could get it. Overall it was well worth going.

Pros: the ports of call and the ship were all good overall

Recommends Radiance of the Seas? Yes!
