There are no words to answer Westcruisers.
But my opinion is:
I have cruised RCI 9 times and #10 is the Radiance in about 2 weeks.
I love RCI, but I think especially the ships. The design is far
superior to other lines, especially Carnival IMHO. The decor
is elegant, usually in soft colors (nothing jarring), while maintaining
a fun element. Lots of glass, light and bright.
The service is excellent, the food good, Chops and Portofino with
gourmet type fare. The atmosphere is lively and fun, but not
rowdy. The larger ships provide something for every member of
When we leave the ship at the end of a week, we feel the cabin
is "ours" the ship is "ours" and dread the thought of other people
in "our cabin". During the upcoming week we usually picture what
we were doing at a certain time of day when we were on the ship.
Just special, that is all. You'll love RCI.
