The Radiance was absolutely the most beautiful ship I have been on. Understand that I have a preference for small to mid-size ships, and haven't been on RCCL's larger ships, but I found the common areas of the Radiance to be nicer than ... Read more

We chose this cruise for my sister and brother in law's 25 anniversary. We had a great time. The staff was exceptional. We did a land tour prior to the cruise so we boarded around 5:00 and it went very smoothly. We were constantly on the ... Read more

I made a resolution: choose a cruise solely for its ports. The rest is likely to be a disappointment. Too many sour faces and mediocre service. The food was good for a weight loss regime, and I did lose some weight, The bathroom in the ... Read more

We had cruised Alaska previously from Seattle, sailing only the inside passage, and we were looking forward to seeing more of Alaska, particularly Denali, so in addition to the cruise we booked the 5 night land tour to follow the cruise. ... Read more

We wanted to do an Alaska cruise and booked this one. The ship was very nice. It was good to have a movie theater and I watched two movies. We thought that the overall food was very good, even the Windjammer. Probably better than other RC ... Read more

We chose this cruise tour for multiple reasons. Our 40th Anniversary fell during the cruise plus we really wanted to see the brown bears in Katmai National park. Unfortunately the tour was cancelled for weather. We made some good friends ... Read more

This was my first cruise, so I didn't have much to go off of, but more experienced cruisers whom I traveled with told me the ship itself was not that great in terms of food and entertainment. I stayed in an inside cabin and had no problem, ... Read more

Alaska exploration is more about the destinations than cruising itself. You spend significant time off the ship so keep your expectations low vis-a-vis other cruise ships that are more focused on the cruise experience itself. The ship is ... Read more

I booked a inside cabin (3615) and was very disappointed in it. It was right next to a fan that ran 24/7. The floor vibrated, the bed vibrated and it was very unpleasant. I tried to change my room but they said they were sold out. ... Read more

We took our family on this cruise. Boarding went quickly. Our 3 rooms were next to each other, our ages are 70-6. We had three grandchildren 9, 8, and 6. Most of our party have been on the mega ships and smaller ships. We felt between the ... Read more

We chose this cruise on the recommendations of several people we have met since we started cruiseing just over six years ago. It was also somewhere we wanted to go. We enjoyed the Land tour and saw some wonderful sites and a lot of ... Read more

This was my third cruise, first time with Royal Caribbean so it was fun to compare and contrast the different ship lines that I have been on. I traveled with my family and we had rooms throughout the ship so we were able to get a wide view ... Read more

They called this the Radiance of the Sea but I was not seeing where it fit the definition of Radiance. Very disappointed after traveling the distance that we had to arrive in our room and not find our luggage. It was disappointing we ... Read more

We reserved this cruise because we wanted to see Alaska, as well as the diverse life that Alaska and its surrounding waters has to offer. We were not disappointed. We booked a cruise tour, which was comprised of a 7 day cruise followed by ... Read more

There was 9 of us (all different ages) and we had a great time. Boarding around noon (start time is 11) took us about an hour, I would go later next time... like 2ish. The two days at sea I didn't feel good, we had to make up time for ... Read more

We chose this ship for the itinerary because it had the best ports and the most amount of time in the ports. Really didn't like boarding the ship and having to walk a gauntlet of people hawking everything from the beverage package to ... Read more

I was looking for a Northbound Alaska cruise that had a great kids program. The cruise line has declined to the point that I would never pick it in the future. The meals were very average. They gave fancy name to food that you would ... Read more

In 2015, we spent the entire summer touring the interior of Alaska in our motor home and vowed to come back on a cruise to enjoy the seaboard side. Thus the booking of this southbound cruise starting in Seward on June 9-16, 2017. ... Read more

Going on a cruise was at the top of my bucket list, and Alaska was the place I most wanted to see. So when my brother invited us to join his family on this trip, I didn't hesitate to book a stateroom on the beautiful Radiance of the Seas. ... Read more

Ship was quite nice. Enjoyed the lobby. Loved the Solarium. Elevators gave a nice view of the ship. Embarking was easy. Disembarking was easy. Little bit of a hoop to jump through with luggage getting dropped off at a different ... Read more
