This was my first ever cruise so I have nothing to compare with. Embarkation from Vancouver was very smooth although I had a small problem with my cruise card and had to wait 20 minutes with a few other people. First impression was what a beautiful ship,and how young everyone was. The average age of the 2,358 passengers was about 45 and there were about 360 kids.Very international. Food was very good ,especially in the Windjammer,and the service was first class.The entertainment was as good as it gets!! Lots of room on the outside decks and there is a bar and music for everyone from classical to country to rock'n roll. Always something to do. O.k. how about the negatives.....our cabin seemed a tad small(third floor inside),the temperature on the ship was a little warm for us guys with our suits and crowded elevators, but us being in our thirties it was nothing to take the stairs.And that darn cruise card,way too easy to spend with so be carefull with it. Highlights of the cruise besides the scenery,was Ketchikan,(ladies save your shopping for there)and Gordon, our cruise director, had us laughing our guts out every day,and of course the people,everyone was very nice. Overall, it was a great experience and would gladly take the Radiance of the Seas again. P.S. don't forget your sunglasses for the dining room, you'll need them!
