We chose to sail on Radiance of the Seas due to the timing, itinerary, and all of our cruise points are with RCCL. Radiance was the first ship we ever sailed on and it was new at the time. The ship is badly in need of a major dry dock. It ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was an Alaska (if condensed) trip that fit our schedule. Overall, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. Ship: The layout is decent. You never feel like you are on the 90,000+ ton ship you are on. ... Read more
