Radiance of the Seas Cruise Review by mojo0323
- Sail Date: May 2017
- Destination: Alaska
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.

Icy StraitThis was among the highlights of the entire trip- less shopping and more authentic Alaska.View All 331 Icy Strait Cruise Port Reviews
We ate fish and chips and toured the fish cannery.
Humpbacked whales were everywhere! The weather was good this day and this port of call was really something unique, perhaps because we were the only ship there.

3 ships were in port and it was early in the season, but it took 3 hours to clear TSA and US customs before we could board the ship.
