Default Radiance class - secrets or not to miss?

Hi.

New to RCCL, booked on Radiance for next November. I was just wondering if there are any "secret" or "special" areas of the ship and what are some of the things that I should not miss.

Also, if you know of things on RCCL that I may find much different than Princess or Carnival, I'd love to hear about them.

Thanks!

I mean areas that are not necessarily common knowledge. For example, on the Coral Princess, there are 3-4 public decks at the back end of the ship that not many people know are there. We discovered one because had a balcony next to one of the common decks. Had we known, we would have booked an inside room and saved $1200 on that cruise! Also, little quiet areas that are out of the way, that you might not find when walking about.

Can't remember what deck, but where the heliport pad is in the front is pretty quiet and it seemed like not a lot of pax where out there. Also, I think there is a balcony/walkway on deck six?? that was rather quiet as well. (It has been about 6 years since I was on this beautiful ship.) If you haven't been on it be sure to go to the Schooner Bar for the pool tables and also go up to to top most point - the Viking crown lounge and check out the looking glass down through the center of the ship. Pretty cool. PS the little movie theater is tucked away on this one and I didn't find it, my mom actually did.

RD was delivered March 9, 2001 and made her first short revenue cruise the 26th. Maiden voyage started April 7.
The pool tables can be found in the forward part of Colony Club.
The "looking glass" in Crown & Anchor Lounge on deck 12.
The "little movie theater" is situated forward the Sports Bar, with entrance from port side.
