Excellent cruise

Jul 17th, 2019

Enjoyable itinerary, but not without issues. Would do it again, but Royal Caribbean is not making me happy with the poor quality in the main dining room. Next time, I'll book Chops for lobster night and just pay extra for the lobster because buying the "filet" was a waste.

Cruise was great. This was our 3rd time on this ship. Loud music under our rooms that lasted into the night.

I can only reiterate the disappointment due to lack of sleep caused by the entertainment in the Schooner Bar. We called in every night and received very courteous receptionists but that could not get us our rest. One of our group even spoke with the pianist and he apologized and stopped playing a little before midnight that night. But the next night things continued. He was just doing his job. Should we return to the Radiance careful consideration will be made in room selection...or on any other ship for that matter. We love Alaska. All of our friends know that we go and look forward to sharing our stories upon return. Some of them have even been upon our recommendation.

Cruise of a Lifetime

Jul 15th, 2019

We did a three day on land tour which was well worth the extra time and money. The cruise portion was great. Enjoyed everything about it. All our excursions were wonderful. The crew was so nice. Food was excellent. Can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed this trip.

Our adventure was truly an incredible experience! It was awesome seeing God's beautiful majesty with the mountains, the glaciers, and the ocean, and marine life! The employees were all so polite, friendly, helpful, and made us feel so welcome.

Our first cruise was an incredible adventure! We deeply enjoyed the rest and relaxation. We are very grateful to have seen the beautiful mountains, gorgeous water, glaciers, marine life, animals, and eagles. It was all so absolutely beautiful! The time went by so very swiftly. We will deeply cherish the memory for a long time to come. It was perfect from beginning to end! We are thankful to have met Thomas, Ida, and Aman who assisted us. All three men made each day very special on our cruise. God bless each and everyone involved in making our trip so enjoyable!

Royal Caribbean is about the money, but if you do your homework and research the ports & excursions, you'll have a good time.

Awesome time from anchorage on the train down to Seward then fishing twice. Fish for salmon in Ketchikan. Kodiak boat riding and all the little brewery’s were awesome.

This is our first cruise with my family. There are a lot of things we don’t know - new kid on the block. However, we are impressed with the quality of food and services provided. We will definitely consider to have another holiday with Royal Caribbean again. Thank you again.

Love this ship, we did the 17 night Trans Pacific cruise from Sydney to Honolulu last year and had a great time. Plenty of things to do onboard, great entertainment and food, if you didn’t want to see a show or movie you could laze around in one of the many bars or on deck. We had a balcony cabin on deck 10 toward the front of the ship which was quite comfortable for the size and the view from the balcony was fantastic, although slightly blocked by the wheelhouse. We booked an excursion at most of the ports, which gave us a chance to see places we would not otherwise have seen. Although these trips are somewhat rushed they were nonetheless good value and you got to see some of the different cultures and people from each port visited. I would have to say that Bora Bora was by far our favourite stop, it is such a beautiful Island and the people were very friendly. We are both looking forward to our next cruise on the Radiance in February 2020 which is an 18 night bottom end trip from Fremantle Western Australia visiting Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart and New Zealand then back to Sydney. CAN’T WAIT.
