The Radiance of the Seas, although now 10 years old, is stil a very beautiful ship. The shows were wonderful and we had fun. We were very disappointed in the food quality in the main dinning room. Very cheap choices, low quality meats, limited varied, the worst we have seen on a cruise ship. This was the first cruise out of 15 we have been on the did not offer Lobster one night. I heard many other guests complain about the food. Drink prices were also too high. Also, it was really one of the best and fast getting on and off the ship we have encounter. First time cruising out of Tampa and we really liked it.

Food and Dining

Low quality, cheap food. The midnight Mexican buffet was a joke. I had steak one night, I thought it was cooked cardboard. The windjamer had the same food every day for breakfast and lunch, okay quality there.
