Great Scenery, and Beautiful Ship

Sail Date: August 2012
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver

The Radiance of The Seas is a beautiful ship with all of it glass and layout. It had a $20mill refurbish last year. Capt. Bill Wright gave an awesome talk and video of building the Oasis of The Seas, that he was the Capt as it was built and on the first sailings. Capt Bill took us up close to Hubbard Glacier, and had to back the ship as a large chunk of ice came towards the ship.

The My Time Dining is great. In the past we have had Traditional seating, but could not get it this time. You can go on-line and pick your dining time, months before you cruise, to what will be best with your day activities. Then when you get to the dining room, you can also ask for the same waiter/waitress, which is always the best part of dining. They get to know your likes, such as who wants coffeee and who does not.

An outside balcony is the best for an Alaskan cruise to see all the beauty from your room. We entered the bay early in the day, and got to see the glaciers from our More room and balcony, without having to get dressed to go outside in public.

This was our 2nd cruise to Alaska. The last was 11 years ago. Unforuntely, the gift shops have taken over many of the ports since then, just like the Caribbean ports.

Icy Strait Point was great, without the gift shops and more back to nature. Less

We wish the showers were as big as on the Carnival Dream.
