Absolutely Fabulous

Sail Date: August 01, 2010

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Just completed a seven night cruise of the Southern Caribbean on this ship. The crew were all excellent - the Captain on this ship understands how to run a happy ship. The food was, as usual, excellent - we ate in the main dining room most nights and the chef's specials were truly scrumtious. We ate in the Cjops Grill one niht with our free dinner from American Airlines and it was almost as good as the best steak houses on land - but here the service was outstanding - and where else can you eat a fabulous steak with a window table right on the water watching the sun setting below the horizon. We enjoyed our time on board so much we actually found ourselves wanting to return to the ship early on many days.

Pros: Staff, Ship's Layout, Food

Cons: Some temporary issues with plumbing on our sailing

Recommends Radiance of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
This would have rated 5 or even 6 but on a couple of days there was a smell of sewage on the lower decks (6 and below) and on one day we had brown water when we flushed the toilet. They seemed to fix the problem after a day so this was probably just an unusual problem with the water treatment facility on-board.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a stern-facing state room on the tenth floor and it was excellent. The only noise we heard from the Windjammer above us was at 6.00am as the staff re-arranged the tables.
