Radiance of the Seas

August 2016 - Radiance of the Seas to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Destination and port schedule Great

The destinations and port schedule were great, so was visiting Alaska at this time of year. The Radiance of the Seas was a very tasteful, clean and modern ship (except for the jungle pool area which could use some fresh air).

Food was okay but not exceptional. The ship has a lot of private dining experiences which is unfortunate because we had a nearly empty table of 10 every night in the formal main dining. If cruise lines are going to promote restaurant dining packages so heavily, then they need to implement impromptu or mixed seating. So many tables around us were only partially full all nights. The atrium entertainment was great to watch, and the theater shows were okay. The onboard daily schedule pages were not the easiest to read of the several ships/cruise lines I've sailed with, so pay attention to the small print and read everything. Also, they say they have Starbucks coffee but they're definitely not trained baristas, even at a la carte pricing.

NicoleM343's Tips

Ketchikan, Alaska - Mountain Point snorkeling is great--went in 2013 and 2016. Definitely would go again.
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska - Spend some time in Anchorage, because Seward is nothing but a cruise terminal. Also, take the ACT bus rather than a taxi or renting a car.
Radiance of the Seas Radiance of the Seas - Go to lunch in the main dining room on the sea days--the only time you'll taste a dessert worth mentioning again. Plus, the lunch specials are excellent especially if you want some international cuisine flavors.
