This cruise was an amazing deal! I only had 1 week vacation, so a 5 night cruise fit our schedule perfectly. We live close to Vancouver, it is a very convenient port for us to cruise out of. I was interested to see Prince Rupert as the ... Read more

This should have been a fun and relaxing vacation. Perhaps if I didn't have accessibility needs, it would have been. When the booking was made, we had told them I was in a wheelchair and confirmed that accessible transportation would be ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise and we thought we would try royal Caribbean this time. After reading some of the reviews of radiance of the seas I was a bit concerned but it was amazing. It all depends what you expect the ship is older but it ... Read more

So I am all for one giving reviews and giving praise when it's due and when it's not. So here it goes. Boarding the ship was quick for me, I have MS, so I was in the disabled line, otherwise the line was long and we got there about ... Read more

This was my first cruise and overall it was a great experience. I'm in my early 30's so definitely younger than the overall crowd but it was a family trip with my parents who are frequent cruisers. Here are my overall thoughts: Ship: ... Read more

I was rather cautious sailing on such a small ship as most of my other experiences of cruising have been with children and all that a larger ship has to offer, however, Radiance of the Seas surprised me. Travel to the embarkation port ... Read more

I am not very "wordy" so this will be short and sweet! Having been on 7-8 cruises, we were impressed by how quick we went thru boarding. From walking thru the terminal doors to being on the ship was no more than 15 minutes. We ... Read more

We have sailed on Royal Caribbean five times in the last three years and twice on a different line. Embarkation was handled poorly and this was the fault of port personnel in Seattle. I did report the incident to Royal and (just as ... Read more

We approached this trip differently than most do as Alaska was never a "dream destination" for us. We were more interested in the on-board experience and I'd like to give some thoughts about the Radiance of the Seas. Firstly, ... Read more

This was our 7th cruise (2nd on Royal) and what a fantastic experience this was. Alaska is a place I've always wanted to go see and I'm so glad we finally got to go. We started with three days in Vancouver before our cruise departed. ... Read more

I loved our cruise. This was our third cruise with Royal Caribbean; we had previously sailed on Freedom and Liberty. Radiance is smaller than the Freedom class and I found that I loved the smaller size. Everything felt a little more ... Read more

We stayed in Vancouver for a few days before the cruise at the Best Western Chateau Granville. The city was nice and so was the hotel. We did the Hop on/off Trolley, which made it easy to see the city. We boarded the ship on the 7th, and ... Read more

The food was terrible. We ate at Chops and had to send our steaks back 2 times and finally just told them to keep it. It was so tough you couldn't cut it. The meat served in the Tides was not good. There was too much time at sea and ... Read more
