Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by sierrajean
- Sail Date: June 2016
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Grand Suite - 1 Bedroom
We had decided to do the inland tour and had heard that RC has beautiful land coaches and rail cars. Yes, they are beautiful and the 6 night land tour was amazing. Cheri S. was our tour guide and Kevin S. was our driver. They were fun, informative and over all just wonderful! We chose to do the extended tour into Denali ($70.00 additional per person) and it was so worth it! We were part of the 30% of people that got to see Denali! The weather was beautiful. June is the time to go.
The land tour combined with the cruise was a vacation of a life time. Go - see Alaska, it will take your breath away.
The Radiance of the Seas was just in dry dock earlier this year for maintenance on the lower (beneath the water line) part of the ship. She is in need of some maintenance in the public areas and state rooms also. Some of the carpets in the main public areas are coming apart at the seams and torn in other places. There were other items in need of repair but all in all we felt she seemed tired and just needed a good face lift.
We did not like "My Time Dining". We went twice and both times the front desk was very chaotic. We were seated the first time and the second time we decided to leave and not wait. We dined in Chops 3 times (can't go wrong in Chops) and once in the Brazilian restaurant, Samba Grill. My husband liked Samba but I didn't care for all of the meat. We were taken aback by our young waiter in Samba when he said if we were going to leave any additional tip to please leave it in cash otherwise he wouldn't see it. Awkward!
I would recommend this cruise and land tour to anyone - any age.
