7 Night Alaska Hubbard Glacier Southbound (Seward To Vancouver)
Sail Date: June 06, 2014
Ship: Radiance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 9617
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The Radiance is a very well run ship---and of course,  everybody loves the Alaska cruise.     The employees are really motivated and managed by the officers of the ship.    Amazing bit of seamanship getting the high seas ship through the tighter passes of the Inside Passage.  Very good food.  Of course, like on most cruises,  there are negative points--- like very expensive excursions.   But overall,  I would take this ship with her Captain anywhere it sails.  The positive involvement of the officers with the guests is tops.  Very clean ship.   Excellent information available about the upcoming ports.   Entertainment only fair on most nights.
