7 Night Alaska Hubbard Glacier Southbound (Seward To Vancouver)
Sail Date: August 22, 2008
Ship: Radiance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All the food was great. However their Beef offerings left something to be desired.(tough). The buffets through out the day were fantastic.

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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
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 room was bright and well decorated. Large storage areas allowed luggage to be stored and the room felt like home.

The National Park visitor Centers and the Park historic exhibits were a great tour, after the narrow gage rail trip up white pass.

Well done by the native tribe. The minimal commercial influence was a change.

Pros: Land Excursions
