Great ship, great ports, the adventure of a lifetime!

we did the 10 days from vancouver to Hawaii this fall. loved the 6 sea days. the staff on this ship are so attentive and personable. lots of fun activities. Steve the CD and Jeremy the AD were both a blast and planned a great trip for us. food was exceptional and the nightly shows were a good mix to make everyone happy. our favorite part was the sea days. just miles of blue water, sitting on deck, ...

My first time cruise review, just because I was so impressed. By background, traveling on this cruise were me, my husband and four friends, all of us on the “other side” of 50. My husband and I have taken over 20 cruises and our friends have taken a few themselves. For all of us, though, it was our first time on Royal Caribbean. We have sailed with Celebrity a lot so as such had Diamond status. ...

I was rather cautious sailing on such a small ship as most of my other experiences of cruising have been with children and all that a larger ship has to offer, however, Radiance of the Seas surprised me. Travel to the embarkation port was without fault, even to a rep approaching us at Heathrow airport literally as we walked through the revolving doors as she noticed our luggage labels. That ...

This was our 7th cruise (2nd on Royal) and what a fantastic experience this was. Alaska is a place I've always wanted to go see and I'm so glad we finally got to go. We started with three days in Vancouver before our cruise departed. We stayed at the Pan Pacific right at Canada Place which is where the cruise ships dock. This was a super convenient location. The hotel was a bit pricey but ...

I loved our cruise. This was our third cruise with Royal Caribbean; we had previously sailed on Freedom and Liberty. Radiance is smaller than the Freedom class and I found that I loved the smaller size. Everything felt a little more personal. We were two adults and two teenage children; we had an owner's suite connecting to a junior suite. I loved having the two cabins, and the layout of both ...

We stayed in Vancouver for a few days before the cruise at the Best Western Chateau Granville. The city was nice and so was the hotel. We did the Hop on/off Trolley, which made it easy to see the city. We boarded the ship on the 7th, and it was a fast easy process. It took maybe 20 minutes. The ship is nice, the staff was friendly. We ate at Windjammer while waiting for our room. The food was good ...

We arrived the day before departure in Vancouver and stayed at the Delta Suites. The location was great. Only $10 Canadian for the two block ride right to the dock check-in point. No line for embarkation. The Radiance of the Seas was the perfect size. Loved the ship! The flow from one area to another was great and prevented congestion. Amy was the cruise director with Darrel being in charge ...

(This write-up ended up much longer than I planned. Short version: this is a great cruise. The Radiance is a fine ship, the crew very helpful, and the Alaskan views are amazing.) I have to say I'm surprised with some of the negative reviews for the Radiance. My wife and I had a wonderful time both on and off the ship. First, some background. My wife and I have done six cruises now, five ...

There were 6 of us (Australians in our 30’s and 40’s) travelling together (3 couples in 3 staterooms) for a B2B Alaskan adventure and we chose Radiance of the Seas as my previous cruise on RCI had been amazing. Two of our friends celebrated their wedding anniversary on the first cruise. My husband and I celebrated ours on the second cruise. Embarkation at Canada Place was easy and we were on ...

This was our second cruise and first on royal caribbean on Alaska cruise and it came up trumps. Last year we sailed on Hurtgruten from Bergen to Tromso, which was very good on scenery but that can not be called cruise ship, it was more like coastal ferry. This time around we splurged a bit and went for Junier suit on deck 10. It was well worth it. The stateroom is very spacious with comfy bed ...
