Itinerary and Service Made Our Experience Excellent!

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 ...

Beautiful Ship, Amazing Itinerary!

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 Alaska Cruise

We chose this cruise for my sister and brother in law's 25 anniversary. We had a great time. The staff was exceptional. We did a land tour prior to the cruise so we boarded around 5:00 and it went very smoothly. We ...

Read the reviews!

I made a resolution: choose a cruise solely for its ports. The rest is likely to be a disappointment. Too many sour faces and mediocre service. The food was good for a weight loss regime, and I did lose some ...

Just ok, nothing special

I booked a inside cabin (3615) and was very disappointed in it. It was right next to a fan that ran 24/7. The floor vibrated, the bed vibrated and it was very unpleasant. I tried to change my room but they said ...

Beautiful cruise on a well kept ship.

In 2015, we spent the entire summer touring the interior of Alaska in our motor home and vowed to come back on a cruise to enjoy the seaboard side. Thus the booking of this southbound cruise starting in Seward ...

Terrible customer service, passable food, good excursions

Was very disappointed since most reviews for this cruise ship and line are pretty good. Went on an Alaskan cruise, which meant most of the ships outdoor areas were not really usable. This left limited common spaces ...

I'd go again in a heartbeat!

This cruise went on sale in March, 2016 for solo travelers. I got an ocean view cabin to myself for about $75 a day. That's a deal! Flying into Anchorage, AK, and flying home from Vancouver, BC, Canada made the ...

Surprisingly fun experience with a great cruise director

We booked this cruise only two days before departure and had relatively low expectations (given that neither of us had been on a cruise as adults and the age/past reviews of the ship). Overall, we were pleasantly ...

The stateroom attendants and dining staff were wonderful. Our only issue with Royal Caribbean was the lack of experience with those in charge of transfers and lost luggage. We paid for a seat for a 20 month old, ...
