  1. I'm currently just doing a little comparison shopping, so any ship similar to Royal's Radiance class.
  2. ALL TAs have unusually high numbers of upper tier members. The Voyager class ships (EX being one of them eventually) are being converted. The old CL location on deck nine (the dark closet in the middle by the elevators) is being torn out and turned into a number of inside cabins. Has happened already on sister ship Mariner just recently. If you are Diamond, with DL access...you can't access the CL anyway, unless you are in a full suite. My favorite CLs indeed are on the Radiance sisters. Used to be the old cigar bar on VCL deck. On those ships the original CL was converted to a family JS cabin near the elevator.
  3. Love the Radiance of the Seas. Did a Trans-Pacific on her in 2017 and in 2018 took the Celebrity Solstice on the same TP. The Radiance layout, service, and food were all superior to the Solstice. We love the size of the ship and all the windows for the non-stop views. We will be on her once again in 2019 and cannot wait. The pool area is wonderful for adults with the food area and bar area enclosed so you do not have to walk to the Windjammer if you want a beverage or some food. Such a convenience. We liked the fact that the roof never opened. There is plenty of sunlight that comes in (glass ceiling) and as another poster said you can always go to the outside pool if the enclosure is not to your liking. The staff was always accommodating to your needs and cabin attendants wanted to please to make sure you had a great time. We cannot say anything negative, however note that she is not a young ship so does show some wear and tear. That doesn't bother us as we always felt she was neat and clean and that matters to us. If we find there is anything different next TP coming up shortly we will be sure to update this post.
  4. Never been to Quest. No interest. I don't believe they had in on the August 2 Radiance sailing we just got off.
  5. Ocean views from virtually every public venue. Park Cafe. Covered Solarium. Differences from other ships: Radiance has shower curtains, Jewel and Serenade have shower doors. Radiance (and Brilliance and Serenade) have Park Cafe, Jewel has some other unnamed food venue in the Solarium.
  6. We sailed Sovereign about a week before your sailing. I heard they were giving all kinds of stuff away. I'm not that desperate to get them. I like to trade and help folks get a block they are missing. I was able to trade a Radiance that I really didn't need for a Monarch. She was very happy, putting together a set of all the ships her husband has worked on over the years. Win Win in my book. I'll just get another Radiance down the road
  7. No one knows..it can vary that first night out. Luckily during our four Alaska cruise's we've never experienced bad conditions. Once in the inside passage we've had the waters as smooth as glass and could hardly feel we were moving. If you have a chance to book a "true aft" facing the wake...consider yourself fortunate as these are the most sought after locations especially for Alaska. The aft balconies on Radiance with the views and the deeper balcony is our favorite location, especially the corner afts. Enjoy your cruise.
  8. 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
  9. As Oasis class opens up more gangways we have never encountered any problem getting on or off the ship. We think the Vision and Radiance class itineraries are better but for amenities you really cannot beat the Oasis class.
  10. Normally I would choose the Radiance Class but have done TA's on the Freedom and as two others mentioned will be enjoying the Allure for our first time by doing the Oct 25th Western Med followed by the TA to Miami on Nov 1st 2020. I am looking forward to enjoying the Allure over the 25 days vs 7 days for a Caribbean on her. To compare ships, I also agree, look at the itinerary first cost by ships doing the itinerary you like.
  11. Radiance holds 2400, Oasis hold 6400. Might be a little more crowded getting off.
  12. Are the Safari Club , Congo Bar and Zanzibar any different from Radiance offerings ? They Calling Serenade "a brand new ship" i think more like Hand me Downs 😂 https://www.traveltalkmag.com.au/cruisetalk/serenade-of-the-seas-set-to-call-australia-home Thanks
  13. Not sure why it would be “ more crowded and hectic” as she’ll have the same number of passengers? Any Radiance itinerary will beat the Allure loop imho. Any Rhapsody itinerary that includes Croatia and Montenegro will be the best.
  14. 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.
  15. Radiance Class hands down for the itinerary. The Oasis Class itinerary is not particularly exciting and the ship's amenities are wasted on itineraries with only one sea day.
  16. Oasis would be excellent for a TA but just for touring I wouldn’t pick a Radiance class.. There is so much to do you wouldn’t have time for.
  17. Normally I would say hands down Radiance class, but in my case I wanted to pair up my med tour with a TA. Oasis class (in this case Allure) has so much more to do on those long sea days.

  19. Itinerary is what sells it for me. If you are going to spend the $$ to get to Alaska...go for all you can fit in. Radiance does one way between Vancouver and Seward, mostly inland waterway. Much more to see, more ports of call. Ovation and Serenade does round trip (Seattle and Vancouver). Best of all worlds...B2B on Radiance...Seward to Vancouver (or vice versa). I am booked again for fourth trip to Alaska next year. Loved each one. 🙂
  20. 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
  21. LOL....or maybe they just have another opinion. The antithesis is to say anyone with a negative view are bashers and have no knowledge at all about cruising and Carnival ships. Trust me, while there may be a tweak or two done to the Radiance, Carnival believes they hit a home run on the Sunrise and are full guns on the next one.
  22. 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.
  23. rotation on Empress, Mariner, Serenade, Liberty and maybe Harmony if they did a 10 week rotation (has Capt Johnny posted on Twitter that he's back?)

  24. Have not sailed on Radiance as yet (booked for March 2020), but this was a prominent thing in our thinking.... Less for the kids, and also an 11 night cruise would also be less attractive to those with kids. Also made sure not to pick date that line up with school holidays.
  25. That is a special cruise, if we had not locked in on the Radiance TA with a group a couple weeks before that was announced, we would have been on with you all.....
