  2. I would like very much to join my sister and her husband on their cruise in May of next year on the Radiance. I am willing to pay for my part. How do I get the reservation(booking number) from Carnival without getting into trouble and them(my sister and hus) finding out. I think you can still add a person after booking.
  3. After having done some of the bigger ships in recent years, I was thinking it would be nice to do some more traditional and quaint cruising again next year. To me, the Radiance class ships pretty much are just that, not too big, cozy, understated elegant. And the Med is just the easiest to get to. So I started to look around for some Radiance class cruises to in the Med, but didn‘t find any. Are the 2020 itineraries just not all out yet or is RCL not using any Radiance class ships in the Med anymore :-0
  4. Is there any guess as to why it’s offered later with new ships or Journeys? I’m sailing on Radiance in June 2020. I know it’s too early for FTTF (and I’m on the fence about it anyway). Just curious!
  5. What would be the earliest flight time you would book out of Vancouver after an Alaskan cruise back to the East Coast? Also does anyone know if you clear customs in Vancouver or once you land in a US city? Struggling to find a flight that would get me back home on the same day and don't really want to do an overnight flight either. Thanks in advance.
  6. They did not duplicate the Sunshine Serenity area on Sunrise and in the future on Radiance. The Serenity area on Sunshine, while nice to look at, is anything but serene based on its location right next to the Lido pool. Fortunately, Carnival listened to the frequent complaints about the Serenity area on Sunshine and did not duplicate this area on Sunrise and Radiance.
  7. On the Radiance class deck plans, there is a narrow space between cabins 8614 and 8616. Does anyone know what that is?deck.bmpdeck.bmpdeck.bmpdeck.bmp
  8. Enchantment of the Seas (Vision Class circa 1996): Majesty of the Seas (Sovereign Class circa 1987) - Jewel of the Seas (Radiance Class circa 2001) Quantum of the Seas (Quantum Class circa 2014) In some way shape or form the windows on all current Royal ships slide open. All of them. And it's been like this for the past... We'll go back to their first ship, the Song of Norway from 1970, and... Yep So to think the odds of this being a critical design flaw that is just uncovered now is... Unlikely
  9. I'm seeing that it is recommended to reserve a specific time prior to the cruise. We will be sailing on the Radiance in November to New Zealand. I have no idea of when shows usually occur to even have an idea of when I'd like to dine. Can anyone let me know in general when are the big shows in the theater?
  10. We rented from Avis last May when we sailed Radiance and the Avis office is about a mile away from where you are docking. My husband took a cab to go get the car and he walked back after returning the car. Someone actually stopped as he was walking back and asked him if he wanted a ride, he declined, but they were nice to offer. If you have someone who can't walk far, I would recommend a taxi. Not sure about Uber as we don't use it. He drove back and picked me up right near the Red Dog Saloon, across from the public library. If you drive straight down S Franklin St., then take a left on this little one way street in front of the Red Dog Saloon, there is a little parking lot there that is used by some of the excursions in the area. I was there with our daypack for the day, jumped in the car and we were able to take a right on Marine Way and headed off to Mendenhall Glacier.
  11. Is Francis Calimag back in the rotation as a concierge on Grandeur? I understand he was most recently on Radiance after longtime service on Grandeur.
  12. Stumbling around in youtube I came across a post that said 40 cruise ships for sale. The source is Apollo Duck, one of THE registry for ships. RCI ships on the list are: Majesty Of The Seas built 1992 Grandeur Of The Seas built 1996 Rhapsody Of The Seas built 1997 Radiance Of The Seas built 2001 Brilliance Of The Seas built 2002 I've got to say sale of the Majesty didn't surprise me... but the Radiance and Brilliance did. Thinning out their mid sized fleet. Not my first time sailing on ships I knew were leaving the fleet... Hope they continue to maintain them to their usual high standard.
  13. I don't care which ship, just hoping for Radiance class. Jewel is doing Greek isles this summer.
  14. Im in a wheelchair as well :) I generally find that the MDR is very accommodating. You can go there as soon as you board and find your table. If you dont think the location will work, you can asked to be moved to a different table :) Wheelchair seating in the theater is in the back but can vary on each ship as to main floor or upper floor if memory serves me correctly. Seems like on Radiance and Freedom, it was on the upper level, very near the reserved seating area. Freedom lists it as: Forward and rear wheelchair seating in Arcadia Theater; elevator to forward seating
  15. Quantum class is smaller than Oasis as is the new Project Icon-class. As these are the next generations ships for the next decade or so, I don't see anything bigger than Oasis. The fact that 10 years later, even the new Oasis-class ships have not been "stretched" (a favorite tactic of Royal to breath new life into older designs) leads me to believe this is the maximum size. Not other cruise line even comes close to having a ship the size of Oasis. With the new Celebrity Edge, Royal is still building "smaller" (by small, I mean not mega-size) ships. Royal is keeping it's smaller ships up-to-date as best of possible. The Radiance class is still popular so as long as they remain profitable and sell out, Royal will keep them around.
  16. Lots of interesting replies. Most saying Harmony. Honestly it's a fabulous ship. But may I ask the 'Harmony' people if for any of you that was your first cruise? If not, do you remember how amazed and delighted you were on your first cruise? Maybe even astounded. I know I was. I didn't stop smiling the for whole week. I bet you couldn't wait to go back again for another cruise, right? Maybe on the same class of ship or another class, just as wonderful. My first Oasis class cruise was my 7th. Before that, I'd done Voyager class, Freedom class, and Radiance class. I was so pleased that I enjoyed Freedom so much, it was the world's largest cruise ship not too long ago, it had all the great features that Royal are so well known for. Each ship just impressed even more, and of course I loved every single one. Could I also just mention that the ABC Islands, Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, are the most beautiful places I've ever been. The blue of the water and the white sand beaches in Aruba are unbelievable. (Please do a Google Image search for Aruba.) The wild Flamingos in Bonaire are the pinkest in the world because of an unusually high level of Beta-Carotene in the inland lakes. I'm not too sure what route Harmony is doing at the moment, but I do know it will be around for a long time yet. So my opinion (which you don't have agree with of course) is Freedom. It is a wonderful, enormous ship, and will soon be even more incredible with new waterslides for the kids and all the other features that it has always had, and are being added to. Apologies for typing the equivalent of a hardback novel!
  17. Marella bought acouple of the Radiance Class ships from Royal and have refurbed them you could try them https://www.tui.co.uk/cruise/ships/marella-discovery-2/
  18. We ate at Samba on Radiance a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it. We sail on Allure on Sunday and will celebrate our anniversary at Samba. Can’t wait.
  19. Yep, none in the Med for 2020. 2 in Alaska and 2 in Northern Europe. To be honest though, those are better locations for Radiance Class ships. They don't have much outdoor pool space so they aren't a great fit for the warm Med weather. Rhapsody and Vision still in the Med, they seem to be working well in that market.
  20. Loos like Vision and Rhapsody are as close as it gets to Radiance class for Summer 2020 in the Med.
  21. Very disappointing work by the cruise director Cruzin Susan. Tomorrow our first day in Maui absolutely nothing going on except for a dance party. The cruise compass looks as baron as a desert. No headline show , no production show just throw up a movie and job done.
  22. Aerial show how was on Radiance Class for few yrs, ships were always short of trained experienced Riggers was reason given. They always went to newer Oasis Class, higher priority, and they just kinda stopped on Vision/Radiance Class. Though Royal still will continue use Centrum for most gatherings. Passengers line up of 4-5 decks looking down...
  23. Hey sis! Nose to nose with Victory.... I loved that ship both times I sailed her. My favorite atrium in the fleet (I love green, what can i say)... I'll miss her when she gets Radiance'd. Loved these little seating areas on either side of Alchemy. Super comfortable and attractive with great views. The older ships really seem to be more about looking out at the sea than inward at all the bells and whistles, and I dig that. Cabin R10... living that porthole life! Well worth the $70 cruise fare and then some.
  24. A recent cruise compass for Radiance has traditional dining times as 5.30pm and 8pm with the shows at 6.30pm and 8.30pm. Except for first evening when there is one show around 9.45pm and a late night mid-cruise showtime of 10.15pm. If you reserve your times in advance and then once on board you find there is a clash, you can usually adjust the timings to suit.
  25. I was planning to write this report when I got home to West Palm Beach, but our flight from LAX has been delayed almost 2 hours, so I have some time on my hands. On a side note, LAX has got to be the worst airport I have ever - what a dump! So, to start my review I need to go back a ways. We moved to FL in 2016 from VA, and one day my wife found this flyer in the mail - it was for a travel show. She suggested that I go, and I did. At the time, we were really looking at a 10-day partial PC Christmas cruise on NCL Jade for 2018. We already had our Navigator Christmas Cruise for 2017 booked, and were already looking for the following year. Well the TA hosting the show and the RCI rep at the show made a strong case for looking at Alaska as our next adventure. So my wife and I talked it over, and we decided to go to Alaska for summer 2018. We knew that if we traveled completely across the country that we had to include a land tour too. After looking at all the options, we selected the Family Tundra Express 9B because it sounded to most kid-friendly as we would be bringing our 8 y/o son. Now, I know that many like to DIY their land portion, and I appreciate the reasons for choosing this option - but I am lazy and too busy to do the research necessary to plan out a DIY trip [emoji6]. Booking with RCI was just too easy, and in terms of cost, the land tour and cruise was under the magic budget number I set, so I was fine with costs. TIP: Book early. I booked our cruise the day they opened the bookings, and I never saw a lower price for our cabin category (GS) or the land tour/cruise price. Note: One additional thing I learned, because we booked our land tour through RCI, we got cruise credits for each night of our land tour, and because we were in a suite, we got 6 C&A points for the land portion.
