Default Grand Princess or RCCL Radiance of the Seas

Having a hard time choosing between the two for a March 2004 sailing, Western route
We are a family of 4, but kids program not very important. We sailed on Grandeur of the Seas and both kids prefered to stay with us. In fact, neither one(6 & 10 at the time) would go to the kids program unless I went with them and stayed.
Both go to almost the same ports, difference being Princess Cays vs. Key West
Looking for class, and a bit of refinement. Better food too
prices are close too Cat AC on the Grand vs. Cat C on Radiance

Any opinions would be welcome

Hi Bluefish,
All I can say, is Radiance is the most beautiful ship I've sailed on. While I enjoyed our Golden Princess cruise, I think the kids may prefer the program on Royal Caribbean. I also loved the Windjammer cafe on Radiance, but then again Princess has 24 hour Horizon court and fresh water pools. Its a tough decision, but since you are going with the kids, I'd go with Radiance...

Enjoy either ship, they will both be a great family cruise!

I really loved Brilliance of the Seas which is a close to identical sister to Radiance. I didn't care for the Grand Princess that much, although I like Princess as a general rule. I would stick with Radiance this time around. She's a spectacular ship, there's lots to do, the food is good and the service is wonderful.

we've been on both, I would prefer the food and entertainment on the Grand, but I personally liked the Radiance ship better. She is the most beautiful ship afloat!! The Grand was too big for my taste.
