July 2015 - 7 Night Alaska Hubbard Glacier Northbound (Vancouver To Seward) Cruise on Radiance of the Seas
Radiance of the Seas needs to be retired
The ship needs a major maintenance overhaul. Staterooms smell of mold and mildew. The bathrooms in both the staterooms and public areas smell of sewage. The design of the ship was good, but needs updating and renovation. Beds were broken down. The food in the Windjammer and main Dining room was fair at best and even though the dinner at the Chefs Table was good, it definitely was not worth $70.00. Sad to say, even though meals are "included" you shouldn't have to pay additional to have a good dinner. The crew and service was good. The entertainment was average. Perhaps since Alaska is a popular destination, they don't feel they need to excel at anything else. If this was my only Royal Caribbean cruise, I would not select them again. However, I know that they can and have done better.
