Twice Cruised Radiance of the Seas

Sail Date: May 2009
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: San Diego
Last October we criused the Radiance to Hawaai; that was our all time favorite cruise out of 30 cruised.  When we returned home I plugged in the Radiance on RCCL website and found the May 11th cruise to Alaska at a good price and booked it.  Now this Alaska cruise was great too.
   The staff, crew, and other passengers are all happy and nice which makes the difference.  Our statis of 25 Royal cruises behind us gives us added bonuses and priveledges.
   The food was very good but some evenings lack great selections but they did have daily standards of steak or salmon you can order.
   To tell you how big this ship is and the amenities it has, we found the SeaSide Cafe on Deck 12 on our Alaskan that we missed on the 15 night cruise to Hawaai.
   We did not use the Spa and did not find them serving hot cocoa to us nor giving us blankets on deck at More the Glacier.  Incidentally we have great weather through out the cruise and only needed our coats and gloves at the Glacier.
   This cruise might come in second out of our 30 cruises.  We will surely go on our 5th Alaskan cruise sometime in the future and we will, also, probably cruise on the Radiance again. Less

Cabin review:

No complaints, we had a great location midship close to the elevators.  Our cabin steward was great after he got to know and meet our needs, it tool a couple of days.  Also after all the cruises we had taken, he surpized us with many new towel animals.

Port and Shore Excursions

This port of departure, the San Diego port, needs better organization but once you get to the Royal check-in it feels worth the struggle to get from the street through the port.
