Our balcony view room, next to our travel-mates, was wonderful! Every vista was jaw-dropping! (Did you know that most glaciers are BLUE!??) The main dining room was 4+ out of 5. The food was really good, but our HOSTS/ WAITERS were what ... Read more

We got a Jr. Suite instead of our usual balcony stateroom (there was a special - we go the Jr. Suite for a few $$ more than the balcony) so we had Priority Boarding - that was great! Went ahead of the general masses and were on-board in ... Read more

The Radiance of the Seas is a beautiful ship with lots of glass and a very open feeling. We had a balcony state room that was very comfortable. The shower was small but adequate. The toilet was hard to get used to as it resembles an ... Read more

We weren't at all sure what to expect on this southbound cruise but are easily pleased so had a great time and of course how else do you get to see that coast and the ports along it? Embarcation was no problem, we had made our own ... Read more

Radiance of the Seas is one of the smaller RCCL ships. It has a very homey feel to it. The ship has been reoutfitted and is very nice. The officers and crew are all very friendly. Our cabin attendant Rendy was very attentive to our needs ... Read more

For wife and myself this was our 9th cruise and 7th on RCI and second to Alaska. Our stateroom was # 8530. It was appropriate, comfortable, and as expected. Following our first Alaskan cruise (Inside Passage) although beautiful, we did not ... Read more

We sailed from Seward after our land part of the tour. We recommend if you are taking a Land/Cruise that you do the land first and enjoy the boat on the second half. We did RCI's 5B Land/cruise. First 5 nights at 4 different stops so ... Read more

As background, we have cruised RC 5 times. We just became Platinum members. We've recommended RC to friends and acquaintances. But our recent cruise on the Radiance of the Seas to Alaska was so disappointing, we don't know that we will ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We enjoyed being on the ship, having everything there but we appalled by the non-stop sales and marketing. Everything had an agenda which was constantly in your face. Had an excellent massage, and at the end the ... Read more
