Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by camperfan
- Sail Date: August 2014
- Destination: Alaska
Embarked around noon in Vancouver and found the process well organized. Disembarked at 7 a.m. and walked right off the ship with no line at 7 a.m. to meet our 8 a.m. bus to the Anchorage airport.
Ketchikan: We took a short cab ride up to Deer Mountain and hiked a rather steep climb to a beautiful vista view. This is not for the faint-hearted but our 21 year old spurred us on and we made to 2 of the 3 miles up. It was easier heading down!
Icy Straights: We did the zip line and it was a blast!
Juneau: Did the "Best of Juneau" tour included whale watching, Mendenhall Glacier, and Salmon meal at at Orca Pt lodge on an isolated island. Saw too many whale to count, seals and eagles galore. Great tour!
Skagway: Took the White Pass train up to Fraser in the Yukon (Canada), kayaked on Glacier lake and headed back to the ship via motor coach. Another great tour. Group right before ours saw a mother bear and three cubs, while kayaking.
Hubbard Glacier: Getting up close to this beautiful glacier was an amazing experience. Hard to put into words!
Our stateroom with balcony on level 8 was absolutely fine for three of us. Our son slept above us on a pull down bed and it worked well. It was cleaned twice per day and by storing suitcases under our bed we had plenty of room.
Enjoy your travels!
