Irritating alcohol and 'my time' dining
Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review to Mexico
Review SummaryOur major complaint was the prohibition on bringing special wines on board to drink in the dining room (we would have been willing to pay a corkage fee) and on having personal bottles of alcohol in the rooms. (You not only couldn't bring them on board, you couldn't buy bottles in the duty-free store for consumption on the ship). Since one of us is in the wine industry, this was a major irritation, and would probably lead us to select a different cruise line in the future. Lots of passengers told us how to cheat on these policies, but that's not the approach we wanted to take.

Pros: the itinerary - - a very efficient way to see six resort areas in Mexico
Cons: the prohibition on bringing alcohol on board; the difficulty scheduling my time dining
