Overpriced and too commercial

Our ship came by recommendation from our travel planner. The first day on the cruise we experienced a problem in the main dinning (Metropolitan) with seating our family. This was an issue throughout the cruise ...

Always dreamed of this trip

Cheaper then Disneys, but we should have paid the extra money. Customer service was lacking, acted like you bothered them to ask question. Didn't get final bill until morning of disembarking, ran put of time ...

Loved Alaska, but not Royal Caribbean

Cheap, cheap, cheap! If you want even bottled water, pay up! You can buy different drink packages ranging from about $12-$70/day per person. If you don't, you can have water, tea, lemonade, or coffee. When ...

Disappointment

We chose this ship because my husband and my daughters did the same trip six years ago. They were very happy about the trip. There was nothing similar. I want to start with airport to cruise ship transfer. We ...

No Longer a Luxury Cruiseline

We have cruised with Azamara several times. After a very disappointing cruise in March, we decided to give it one more try. Azamara is no longer a luxury cruise line. The food was very disappointing and mediocre. ...

You Gotta be Kidding

OK, here goes. The excursions saved this cruise from be horrific and, at that, they only increased my rating to Poor. Embarkation was fine, no real hassles. Disembarkation was a fiasco. From trying to identify your ...

Below par experience compared to other ships

Alaska is one of the prettiest places I have ever cruised but not the best cruise. The cabin was great. Had an ocean view room, saw the interior rooms and had friends with a balcony. I think our room was laid out ...

Time to switch to a new cruise line.

It's always been on our bucket list to check out Alaska. Our three previous cruises had been on NCL to the Carribean, Transatlantic, and Mediterranean, so we booked this one with NCL a year in advance. Embarkation ...

Silversea experience way below expectation

Our cruise started with the check in for the private train from Anchorage to Seward. The train departs from the rail station adjacent to the airport and our bags were quickly taken but then we were left to find our ...

Horrible food, hard beds, bad restaurant service

Picked this cruise for the itinerary but regretted it quickly. The food was terrible, even at the specialty restaurants we paid extra for. Service at several of the restaurants was bad with servers rolling their ...

Boring!!!

This was it first cruise and is likely to be the last. We left 4 hours late and traveled the inner passage at night, couldn't see anything. The ship is fundamentally a shopping mall - hotel on floats with gambling ...

Not Really Worth It

I choose this cruise because it worked best for the time frame we had. I also selected it because I believe cruising in one direction in Alasaka is a better way to go. The Jewel is old and needs updates. The food is ...

Training ship?

The itinerary was great. I enjoyed Alaska, but I was disappointed in RCI. Yes Radiance is old and small but I expected that. I didn't expect a poorly trained crew. Outside of food service, I had to ask for ...

RCI quality of cruises has steadily gone down.

We chose RCI because we have sailed on them before and generally have good experiences. This however was not the case on the Radiance. From the time we got on the boat things were awful. The boat smelled like raw ...
