A fantastic Land and Sea Cruise

Sail Date: August 22, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

I was skeptical about such a large ship. However, this ship was very well organized and the personnel were fantastic in their courtesy. The ships internal elevator layouts eliminated congestion normally encountered. And the Megaship syndrome was avoided. Radiance of the Seas has it right!

This cruise changed our impression of prior cruises on other lines, and now has us looking into another Royal Caribbean Cruise.

Pros: Land Excursions

Cons: The Cigar Bar

Recommends Radiance of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
All the food was great. However their Beef offerings left something to be desired.(tough). The buffets through out the day were fantastic.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was bright and well decorated. Large storage areas allowed luggage to be stored and the room felt like home.
Service and Staff
All personnel we encountered from the cabin steward to deck crew were friendly and helpful. Many volunteered information on shore amenities, and off the path fun things. This was just one more pleasure for our trip.
The evening shows were five star not to be missed. The ships other activities were all first class. The fitness center and Climbing wall were my favorites.
Skagway, Alaska
The National Park visitor Centers and the Park historic exhibits were a great tour, after the narrow gage rail trip up white pass.
Don't Miss: Don't Miss the Rail Trip
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
Well done by the native tribe. The minimal commercial influence was a change.
Juneau, Alaska

Don't Miss: Mendenhall Glacirer and the city museums
Ketchikan, Alaska
The Old town tours and historic displays are old Alaska
