Something is wrong when someone says they were 50 and were one of the youngest on board...Everything else just seemed weird when I saw that remark. I'm in my 50's and in 9 cruises on RCCL, I've never been one of the youngest nor has the older age group been the predominant one on board. My Grandson has an infection right now, which is running around at his school. His school's attendance is about the same as a Radiance ship's capacity. If someone gets sick, it can spread. If you handle something germy, don't put your hand up to your eye...you could get an eye infection. According to this poster the ship is dirty, covered with germs and old people and I just don't believe that's the case. P.S. I love the beds and the food...so everyone's opinion is different.
It's not good that there are still plumbing/sewer problems. This has been ongoing for well over a year.
Granted there are incidents on all ships of isolated backups and odor. I've experienced them on many ships but they were quickly taken care of.
If the plumbing problems were this extensive they should have hit more aggressively with a dry dock instead of fixing it on the fly over a one year period.
I figured since the "odor" reports had become less that the problem was fixed. I guess it isn't unless it was an isolated incident.
Odors are not good, but with any ship that has a little age on it-this seems to happen. Since I have cruised 16 ships and only 4 were 2 years old or less when I cruised them, this has happened to me a number of times. Not great-but not as bad as flooding toilets and backed up showers.
When people talk about odors, I take it with a grain of salt. However, when they talk about flooding and backed up toilets/showers- well I don't want to experience that. We need our necessities.
