7 Night Alaska Hubbard Glacier Southbound (Seward To Vancouver)
Sail Date: May 28, 2010
Ship: Radiance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

As our first cruise I don't think we could have made a better choice. Our balcony room was perfect -- plenty of closet space, great shower, and a very comfortable bed. Room service was quick and friendly. Boarding and leaving the ship was well-organized and went relatively quickly. Overall, we were stunned by the beauty and service on board. We've already begun making plans to return to Radiance of the Seas for another cruise.

Our room was perfect. They're all relatively small, but there's space for everything. We never felt claustrophobic or that we couldn't move around or relax. The balcony was wonderful.

As Alaskans, we've been to Juneau before so didn't feel the need to do a great deal of sightseeing.
Don't Miss: Mendenhall Glacier.

Hoonah was a great stop for a waling tour. Also, the history surrounding the cannery was very interesting. Lots to see and do.
Don't Miss: The cannery
