Alaska, ah, what a trip!

Sail Date: August 31, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were pleased with our stateroom and the friendliness and courtesy of the staff. The food was O.K. but portions too small. Overall the quality of the food was just O.K., not excellent.
Even though paying for the wifi access, I could not send e-mails and the tech support was not knowledgable enough to fix the problem.

Pros: Stateroom and staff

Cons: Size of seating in dining room. Should be smaller. Wifi connection was poor

Recommends Radiance of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food quality was O.K. in main dining room but some dishes were bland and portions were very small. I know you could have multiple servings. The options for entree's lacked variety.
Ship Quality
Have no edxperience in comparing the ship to others.
Cabin / Stateroom
bathrooms and showers were very small for above average sized persons.
Service and Staff
All staff were excellent. One complaint, the Captain was very personable and funny but could not hear him in our stateroom during his announcements. Had to open our door or stand on balcony to hear. Sometimes we missed parts of the announcements due to this. Should have the option to listen or turn down captians announcements in the staterooms. They are not to be missed!
Did not participate in activities. Did attend shows which were excellent. Unhappy with on board shopping and the huckstering of items was beneath the dignity of RCCL.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Same old stuff as far as shipping
Don't Miss: Lumberjack show
Skagway, Alaska
Just shopped. Too many jewelry stores. Some were unethical & overpriced. Buyer beware.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
Loved the fact only one ship in port.
Don't Miss: Zipline but 40 minute busride to the top was a pain.
Juneau, Alaska
Need more time in port. One day not enough. Mushers camp and photo safari were excellent.
