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

Having done 6 cruises previously on Celebrity, my partner and I accompanied friends (very loyal Royal cruisers) on the Vancouver to L.A. sailing. I think Celebrity has spoiled me as I have never had a negative comment on any previous ... Read more

Boarded the ship in Vancouver to sail to Hawaii and then do a back to back cruise to Sydney. Cabin was big enough, enough hanging space in the wardrobe and plenty of drawers. The bathroom was on the small side and if you dropped the soap, ... 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

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

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

I know I'm spoiled by usually sailing Freedom or Oasis class but as a LOYAL TO ROYAL cruiser I was disappointed in the condition of the ship. The emails needed paint and varnish as did most of the ship, the shower looked moldy and dirty. ... Read more

Overall, it was a good cruise. Alaska is very beautiful, and I'm glad we had this experience (I'm a Caribbean girl, so it was nice to come back home to the heat after a week of chill and rain, but Alaska is very striking). I love ... Read more

I have been a dedicated Loyal to Royal cruiser for over 10 years. I hope to NEVER cruise with them ever again. For starters, the entire on-line process was not user friendly. I am not some luddite and I am getting an MBA on-line. I ... Read more
