Royal Caribbean's Radiance of the Seas, January 22, 2010, March 19, 2006 and March 4, 2005. Also the Carnival Valor December 04
All photos taken by yours truly. Enjoy!
I have cruised 46 times and I will be adding photos and reviews as often as I can. I have cruised three times on the Radiance and she is my favorite ship of all of my cruises. And yes, that includes the Oasis of the Seas. That ship is simply unbelievable but the beauty and elegance of the Radiance can not be denied. There is glass everywhere--even the elevators look out to the sea. She has self-leveling pool tables, a basketball court, a two-story dining room, beautiful staterooms and so much more. These ships today are so amazing. Sometimes you wouldn't even know you are on the water until you go to the top deck and look out at the beautiful blue sea!
|LOVELY SOLARIUM-ULTIMATE FOR RELAXING|
Have you ever seen such a lovely room? It's the Radiance Solarium with a retractable glass roof. A gorgeous pool and hot tubs as well plus plenty of space to stretch out and relax in or out of the sun.
|RADIANCE KIDS ONLY POOL|
There is something for everyone on the Radiance. The Adventure Ocean Kids' program is just super. They have their own time with children their own age plus Mom and Dad are always close by if needed. I have seen little ones cry when their parents drop them off and then cry even harder when they come to pick them up!
The Radiance has something for everyone, including sports bars with at least a dozen TVs, two self-leveling pool tables, a champagne bar, basketball court, Seaside Grill and much more.

Carnival Valor December 2004
I was invited to the travel agent inaugural of this brand new ship in December, 2004. The ship is really fantastic and fun. It has a totally patriotic theme with the American Lobby atrium, the Eagle Lounge, the Bronx bar, the Lincoln and Washington dining rooms and more. It made you feel really proud to be sailing on her!

|BRONX BAR--WHAT FUN FOR NEW YORKERS!|

|CABOOSE LOUNGE FOR KIDS|
The Caboose is a huge area for kids only. It's full of video games, flashing lights and music. And lest you wonder where it got its name . . .
How about a bakery along the Promenade deck? Don't those cakes look yummy?
