Radiance Alaska Cruise

Sail Date: July 29, 2016

Reviewed: 10 months ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Enjoyed the ship and staff. Staff from Cascades Dining Room was outstanding! My husband and other companions loved the behind the scenes tour. Issues with BJ's travel. Flights too close together (barely had restroom break between flights). Arrived as last group boarding (forgotten at airport, Windjammer closed upon arrival)-no meal for several hours. Large group that was "linked together" were split up at dining tables and land tour. Dining staff got our group together at 2 tables next to each other. Very little/incorrect information given on land tour. Would have appreciated a call from BJ's for assistance with needing flights and hotel rooms due to Delta issues-had to be handled ourselves.

Cabin / Stateroom
Nice balcony. Cabin small but good storage. Hated the shower-never got used to using shower without needing several towels to mop up water on floor. Always cleaned well. Great stateroom attendant.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Problems with embarkation. Afternoon arrival at airport-buses "forgot" us. Windjammer closed when we arrived on ship, no food for several hours. Had to wait in long line for a hot dog.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Especially enjoyed-Bering Fishermans Adventure (Ketchikan); Zipline (Icy Strait); Taku Salmon Feast (Juneau); Sled Dogs/Musher's Camp (Skagway)
