This was a family "bucket list" trip for my dad and unfortunately it was not the ultimate experience that he was hoping for. Embarkation was a long meandering walk and when we boarded the ship no one was giving any ... Read more

This was the first Alaskan Cruise for our family of 6 adults, and the first overall cruise for 3/6. We stayed in Vancouver at the Pan Pacific, which was a perfect location for boarding the ship. We had a very smooth embarkation, and were ... Read more

Wanted to take MIL & SIL with us to Alaska and chose RCCL for the itinerary and cost. Wish we had chosen a route with Glacier Bay instead as there were hardly any talks at all and no rangers came aboard the ship during the couple of ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we specifically chose Alaska so the ship was what just happened to be going on the days that worked. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The problems we encountered are out of their control. Not ... Read more

We have sailed with RC before, numerous times, and I have to say, I was truly disappointed in the level of service on this cruise. The trip itself was lovely, and Alaska was an amazing destination. But the cruise itself: Just ... Read more

We have sailed three times previously on Disney and greatly enjoyed their ships and service. However, for this vacation, we decided to give RCI a try for several reasons. First, we really wanted a one way sailing and not a round trip. ... Read more

This was only my second cruise, and I thought the cruise itself was fine. I took it more for convenient transportation than for the cruise experience. We stayed at the Pan Pacific in Vancouver, and they took care of transporting our ... Read more

We decided that the best way to see Alaska was on a cruise ship doing a one way trip that included a stop at Hubbard Glacier. That led us to Royal Caribbean, and the price seemed acceptable even though we had heard warnings about the ... Read more

We are pretty loyal RC cruisers. We'd sailed to Alaska 11 years ago on the Norwegian Dawn from Seattle with 15 family members. At that time decided we'd return as a couple in the future to see more of Alaska. The cruise ports and ... Read more

This is our fifth cruise. Our room and the ship overall was just not up to par. Our room had several problems. The AC did not work. We needed it in Vancouver the first day and it was not working and it was very hot. The bed was ... Read more

An Alaska cruise... another item on our "Bucket List" and we found a great price for the "first sailing of the season" on Radiance of the Seas. The flights from Tennessee to Vancouver were long but we were filled with ... Read more

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

This short itinerary fit well into both vacation time and budget. Also, it was a great introductory to the Inside Passage and Alaska. This was my 3rd time sailing from Vancouver - so was familiar with Canada Place and surrounding area. I ... 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
