A wonderful experience sailing on Radiance of the Seas. Smooth sailing, every port seemed to get better and better as we headed south, and the additional tours were an experience of a lifetime.

Cabin / Stateroom Stateroom was great and balcony was on Port side so we had great views of the land as the ship was heading south. Our stateroom attendant Sajan Ralkar also was excellent in taking care of our every need.

Dining Room Table # 577 - Fanderson and Salvio superior in taking care of the 8 of us at this table. Hope we can get them again on future sails or people with the dedication to serving you as the two of them did.
Food and Dining
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska
got there from the train ride so arrived just in time to board. Didn't see Seward.
Cruise Hubbard Glacier
relaxing and enjoyable
Juneau, Alaska
Helicopter to the glacier for the dog sled- great!! Visited the town.....neat, had to visit the Red Dog Saloon.
Skagway, Alaska
did 2 tours, should have stayed in town and seen the sites.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
Whale watch was done with outside excursion company...smaller more personal trip, very enjoyable and the captain found the whales!
Ketchikan, Alaska
would like to have had more time there, nice town. We had 2 tours to get done so was rushed at the end to get some shopping done and little time to see the local sites.
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska
Relaxing day allowing everyone to pack up, yet rest us for the day, before disembarking the next day.
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
a Hidden 'Gem' of a city. Definitely going back for a visit.


On the last nite of the sail, we decided to do 'Chops' instead of My Time Dining (which was also excellent), but the meal at Chops really capped of the trip.
