I really think the Radiance is probally RCCL's best ship all around ( I am going on her again on Feb 07, 2007. I know the new bigger ships have a lot to offer ice skating, surfing machine and larger crowds. First I don't ice skate and second I don't surf that well to wanna do it on a ship. Plus I fugure those "Attractions" Will be the kid areas anyway. And no everyone I do not have a problem with kids its just that I normally cruise to get away from them for awhile. (c: I still think that The Sovereign is one of their better ships also considering she is only a 3-4 day ship. ( I am going on her again on Nov 27, 2006, my 3rd time this year alone) But she was at one time their flag ship and I even think Sonny was impressed with her.
