  3. Radiance of the Seas
9 night northbound from Vancouver, ship sailed 5/17/17. For 30 yrs we wanted to cruise to Alaska. Wife is in a power wheelchair, so we reserved an accessible Jr. Suite. The room has been great! I could cruise the world in this stateroom. The cruise line has been very accommodating and attentive to my wife's special medical needs. We were able to go on 3 shore excursions and walk around several of the ports we called upon. The Radiance is an older ship. We sailed on her sister Brilliance back in February and enjoyed her as well. There are bigger and newer ships in the fleet, but the crew and many of the passengers we talked with enjoy this ship! The most often heard comment from both, is that this ship still has the personal service not available on the bigger vessels. There are a few children on board, but most passengers are in their 50s and older. We splurged and bought tickets to the Chefs Table for one night. We shared a private dining room with 4 other couples and had a spectacular time! after listening to the chef explain how he prepared every course, and the wine steward how each wine was selected (each course had its own special wine), I decided the price was too low. It was really spectacular! Thank you RC and Radiance for making our dream trip something we'll talk about for many years to come.

Everything we'd hoped for AND more
