A good cruise late in the season

Sail Date: September 09, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Ship should limit smoking in many more areas. Basically, by late evening the entire central area of the ship smells of second hand smoke.

Pros: Royal Car customer service

Cons: Ship had ventalation trouble with a bad odor in the suites

Recommends Radiance of the Seas? No.

Had great activities for the limited area of the ship. Ship theater presentations were very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our first week stateroom was in the foward part of the ship and was excellant. Our second week, the stateroom was in the middle of the ship and the air conditioning system had an ordor of burning rubber, like a slipping fan belt. We woke up with headaches and the staff assisted us in a move to another suite. Staff was great but it did not appear that the ship maintenance personnel were in any hurry to get the problem fixed. We were then moved to another stateroom that was available for the rest of the trip.
Service and Staff
Ships staff were excellent.
Food and Dining
Our dining room staff was excellant
Ship Quality
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
Would rather have seen Sitka.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Seems to be just a shopping stop, weather always rainy.
Skagway, Alaska
We walked the whole town, a great stop, additionally we rented a car from Avis and drove to Car Cross in the Yukon. By driving we took our time and saw some great scenary.
Juneau, Alaska
On a clear day, a flight over the ice pack was inspiring.
