We Finally Made It ! My husband felt we were the only people in America who had not visited Alaska, so we were excited to finally embark – and found embarkation quick and easy. Overall, we enjoyed the ship and particularly liked ... Read more

We cruised to Alaska and it really is a once in a lifetime trip! The scenery is amazing and with all the wildlife, glaciers, and mountains around it is something you will never forget! The Explorer was very well maintained and has a lot of ... Read more

Royal Caribbean's pricing for the cruises are about on par with most other cruise lines, yet at the end of the day you'll spend more for less with Royal Caribbean. To start, RC does not have good food. In fact, I would say that RC's ... Read more

This is our 6th Royal Caribbean cruise, we really enjoyed it. We flew into SEATAC and took an Uber to the cruise port, which I recommend. Uber was $41, which is pretty cheap transportation. SEATAC is very Uber/Lyft friendly with an area ... Read more

We just returned from Alaska on Explorer of the Seas. This was our first time in Alaska and second Royal Caribbean cruise. We enjoyed it very much. We had a room with a balcony which was great for viewing the beautiful scenery. We even ... Read more

We wanted to see Alaska. Glad we chose this itinerary, the ports were great. Lots to see and do, both on and off board. We love the Radiance class ships, they feel like a cruise ship, not too big, not to small. We found all the staff ... Read more

We love Radiance of the Seas. They really stepped up the food in the Windjammer. There was always something delicious available. I only wish it was open longer hours. This is not a ship where a variety of food is available 24/7. You really ... Read more

I had never been to Alaska before, and loved the idea of just unpacking once and getting to different ports. We did the Whale Watching/Wildlife Quest and Mendenhall Glacier excursion in Juneau, the While Pass Rail Train in Skagway, and the ... Read more

This is our 17th cruise overall and the 8th on Royal Caribbean. It was a pure delight. I especially want to point out the excellence of our two headline entertainers - Tony Tillman and Hayden Smith and his wife, Alexa-not only so talented ... Read more

The ports were amazing. Cruising through the Hubbard Glacier was unbelievable. We learned so much about Alaskan and Native American history. LOVED the itinerary. We've been on this class ship and love the size, layout and amenities. ... Read more

We took our daughter and son-in-law on this cruise. They had never been on a cruise and we got them a grand suite. They are now forever spoiled. We had only two full days at sea: the first full day and the last day. We did a tour in ... Read more

I chose Radiance of the Seas because I wanted to do an Alaskan cruisetour and this one met the timeframe in which we wanted to travel. Since we were part of the cruisetour, we arrived later in the afternoon for embarkation and the ... Read more

We really like the itinerary for the sea and land tours. Besides the cabin issues we had some other issues were: We went the entire week WITH NO HOT WATER. One day we had no water at all. And yes I called maintenance. Children were ... Read more

We were very pleased with the friendly positive attitude of almost every crew member we encountered. Without them, we would not consider cruising on Royal again as the ship and facilities need significant upgrades and replacements/repairs. ... Read more

First, we are somewhat loyal to Royal, although it is not set in stone. This Alaskan cruise appealed to our family because of the ports (Tracey Arm Glacier, Juneau, Skagway, & Victoria) and the passage through the Inside Passage. And ... Read more

While there were some details we wished were different (could not find root beer on board, sofa bed placement made it hard to walk the length of the stateroom) - the overall experience was fantastic. Alaska took center stage and was ... Read more

We feel very fortunate as the weather held out for three beautiful days in Alaska ports, leading to a great week on the Explorer. Boarding was easy - less than 20 minutes once we actually made it to the entry. There was a navy vessel ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we've traveled with RCI before and have loved it, the dates where OK (we would have preferred they would sail on Saturday so we wouldn't have had to ask for an extra vacation day though). The embarkation and ... Read more

This was my first cruise. Before we sailed, I was nervous. Thankfully, those fears were totally unfounded. The Explorer was wonderful. Ship Clean. Clean. Clean. Everything on the ship was well-maintained. And it seemed that the ... Read more

We arrived in Seattle a couple of days early and had a very good time exploring the city. Embarkation day was hectic as most are, but we were able to get on to the ship within about thirty minutes after arrival. Once onboard, we were ... Read more

The Radiance was absolutely the most beautiful ship I have been on. Understand that I have a preference for small to mid-size ships, and haven't been on RCCL's larger ships, but I found the common areas of the Radiance to be nicer than ... Read more
