You'll love this ship!! We were on it for 2 weeks and chose it through word of mouth. There were many on our cruise that chose this ship because it is their favorite. The new Captain is a talker....and always prepared with a fun quote of the day whereas he uses a new word he learned from a passenger the previous day. You know his "speech" is done when he signs off with...HURDY GURDY, AND HAVE YOURSELF A COOKIE. ( Best place to bump into him...He likes to spend his off-time at the Seattle's Best coffee bar.) Take in the many pranks, jokes and illusions of the short bartender @ the Schooner Bar. (You will also be in amazement of the entrance to this bar, as it really smells like your on an old schooner boat.) And if you have a balcony room on 7th deck forward, you are in for a royal treat....Cathrine the room steward was the best!! She took note of our everyday needs. Even giving us an extra bucket of ice, due to noticing we like to fill our water bottles...without us even asking for it. It was the little things that made a difference for us when it came to Cathrine. And for a poolside massage, Nadine from Africa gave the BEST massages when I got a migraine. I went back to the Spa twice and personally requested her for 2 more massages.
Would I book another cruise on Radiance...You betcha!!! I miss all the crew. It was like a second home.
