On Radiance of the seas

Recommended Posts

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.

Are you overnight in Maui?

 

It is common for onboard activities to be very slight on those nights.

Yes we overnight, but no excuse it’s a night that is still part of the overall experience.

We've often overnighted in ports and wouldn't expect a whole range of shows and activites when many many people will be off the ship. Even in ports where we decided to get back onboard early it's something we expected and didn't impact on our night, but then we don't need entertaining and enjoyed a quiet restaurant and the novelty of an (almost) empty ship.

 

We overnighted in Maui and went to the Laihaina dinner show, as did many people from the ship. Even if you didn't want to do that the town has  a really nice vibe. I can't imagine overnighting in Maui and wanting to stay onboard.

 

Incidentally I think the idea of overnighting somewhere is to give you an even more full experience of the places you are visiting - not just spending every night on the ship 🙂

The show will be on the pier a couple of hours before departure.

Is the ship itself up to your expectations?

WE just booked Hawaii to Vancouver and don't see any overnight ports. Maui is 8am to 11pm and the longest stop on the cruise.

This will be our 4th RC cruise, Freedom 2017, Anthem 2018 and refurbished Navigator this past April/May.

But still looking forward to this trip as it's for our 40th.

Generally, there are overnight stops every other year.

I wonder why every other year....and not all the time?

Yeah, just something I've noticed.  Only short term though.
