Having aways sailed northern Europe, Aslaka or The med off season it was a pleasure to experience a ship in warmer cimate and with plenty of days to enjoy life on board the ship.
Docked along Sydney waterfront it was easy to walk from our hotel to the ship where as Crown & Ancchor members we were able to check in straight away despite the signage stating otherwise.
Radiance of Seas has a indoor solarium and Park cafe where we waited until the cabins were ready whilst others filled the Windjammer. Cabin was smaller than the balcony cabin on AOS but had a ncie glass balcony that we could enjoy a full view from.
Dinner at Cascades restaurant second seating allocation with table of 10 who were fellow Britsh which was a nice gesture.
Breakfast & Lunch taken most days at Park cafe as a ligher fare served but frequenty repeated. For variation try the Windjammer. Staff were always very friendly in all restaurants. Everyone smiling was par for the course.
Bought dinning package at 60 us$ to eat at Italian Giovanna, Brazil Samba restaurant and Chops Grille. Our wine package that we purchased could be used at any restaurant on board the ship. On a 16 night sail a change in restaurant venue is worth the small cost.
It was Melbourne Cup day one day at sea and the crowds gathered for the onboard activities by the pool. Ladies wore hats and alround everyone had a marvellous experience when watching the races on the large pool screen. The entertainment crew lead by Bobby did a marvellous job in making sure that everyone was entertained throughout the cruise.
