Awsome Cruise

Room Type: Inside

This being my first cruise, i was really looking forward to it. Being without preconceived ideas and expectations,  i can say i was not disappointed with the experience.  Even though the Radiance of the Sea is an older ship it was very well maintained. Our cabin was spacious and elegant.  From the very first day the crew went out of thier way to ensure our comfort and amde sure we were enjoying the cruise. The food was as good as any high end restaurant, always beautifully presented. You could order all.you could eat and if you wanted,  you could order serveral selections from the menu. For me, they served you just enough to leave room for dessert without leaving you over stuffed. 

The ship.had activities all day long so if you ever got bored, it was your own fault.  I enjoyed my time on board so much that if i could have afford it, i would have taken then return cruise back to Vancouver.  I recommend thia cruise to anyone that wants to experience an incredibly cruise. I will definitely sail.with Royal Caribbean again.

Cabin / Stateroom
I.could not have asked for a better cabin. It felt like i was staying in a large chain hotel. The cabin attendent always made sure our cabin was clean and neat and was extremely honest. I had accidently left some money ($250) one day and when we got back that evening, it was still there.
