I would be disappointed, also. I just love the band. I think that since I posted this message, I've seen other posts to indicate that there is a band, so maybe the person who wrote about missing the pool band on the Radiance was on something other than a Caribbean cruise. Alaska, maybe? Be sure to let us know, Donna. I wish I were going as soon as you are. I don't know if I can wait 2 1/2 more months.
