  1. We are really only interested in sailing Alaska. Neither my husband or I are beachy people. Our last cruise was last year on Radiance of the Sea, which is by no means a giant ship. We aren't really people persons either, and we actually avoided the main dining room every night and either ate in the specialty dining or at the buffet so we could sit out back and watch the scenery. Neither of us have any problems saying "no" when people try to sell us something, though I don't remember even having any issues with that. I guess I just want to see if they all inclusive, including the excursions and airfare, would be a benefit. I'm not afraid to spend money on Alaska, we spent about 12k on our trip last year. Also, if on the smaller ships if they're more strict about dressing up for dinner than the bigger, more commercial ships, as that would be a definite no from my husband.
  2. On Radiance 8-30-19 and the HD is Philip Ashcroft
  3. Anybody have this cabin on a previous sailing. We've booked it for the Alaska NB, sailing 8/19/11.

  5. For us, the Regent experience is special enough that we do not see ourselves elsewhere anymore. Firstly, we will only stay with small ships moving forward. We have had many wonderful trips on many wonderful lines, including other small ships, but Regent just is our happy place. May I ask you this ... you mention that you had a fantastic time on Radiance of the Seas, why? What were the aspects that you liked about it? The reason that I ask is because there are those that love the big ship experience with the hustle and bustle so it would be wise to consider what things speak to you before moving forward.
  6. Stateroom announcements was a topic raised at the Captains Corner on our Jan cruise on Radiance. The captain said that from corporate, fleetwide, announcements are not broadcast into staterooms as a result of passenger feedback. A number of people voiced their displeasure and the advice was to put it on our survey. I agree with those who suggest that there should be some volume control in each cabin, & also that the announcements should be on the webcam/navigation TV channel.
  7. Disappointed to hear this as we thoroughly enjoyed our Chef's Table experience on Radiance and have a couple of upcoming Mariner cruises with extra OBC we were considering spending on the Chef's Table. I don't think we'd enjoy this location. Is it unique to Explorer class (or Mariner itself)? Having the private room on the Radiance really enhanced our experience. We will definitely check out the location on future cruises before we reserve.
  8. I have an extra Serenade block. Would like to trade for Explorer, Anthem, Radiance, Adventure, Symphony, Oasis or Harmony. Anyone interested?
  9. As much as I love the larger ships, I am concerned that an Oasis class ship will be all the more crowded and hectic getting on and off the ship at European ports. Anyone have an opinion on which class of ship may be best for a European cruise? Thanks all!
  10. I saw the same episodes of Family Ties and Doogie Howser MD on Radiance in August that I saw on Sympony in January but at least in Alaska you didn't have all the cricket stuff on ESPN like you do in the Caribbean.
  11. I'm like you... I have four cruises booked. $52/$52/$65/Price not listed yet. The $52 prices are Adventure and Radiance and the $65 is Allure. I got Adventure at $47, I'm still hoping that the others come down some.
  12. They in the same class but is any thing different between them ? Both will be sailing from Australia In 2020 . Thanks 🙂
  13. Would someone please post the week's cruise compass for the southbound Alaskan cruise? Thank you so much for your help.
  14. Best ship hands down by a mile, even without the kids, is Ovation. Those cruisers who have never been on a Quantum Class ship will only talk about Radiance not knowing what Ovation gives you in comparison. Ovation has more outward views from more public spaces than Radiance. Now add the modern decor and cabins, updated shows, amenities, Two70, the incredible Solarium, multiple pools, better dining venues, and especially SeaPlex for the kids... 100% no brainer. If you take the kids, easier flying to Seattle round trip. Choose Ovation for the ship, however ........ if you actually wish to see more Alaskan ports that Ovation does not visit (Ketchikan, Icy Strait, etc) so that you can have more of an Alaskan experience vs. a RCL ship experience, you'll have to choose Radiance or Serenade. You mentioned you wished to stick with Royal, however NCL Bliss has the best itineraries for the large/shiny/new mega ships which include both Glacier Bay + Ketchikan out of Seattle round trip.
  15. And hopefully they don't contain both Radiance and Sunrise! Hopefully Radiance and perhaps even a Dream or Vista class ship, though those types of ship typically remain in Florida.
  16. We have cruised Alaska on Explorer, Ovation and Radiance. I will say they all were good and it depends on your family. My son enjoyed Explorer but loved Ovation. He was bored to death on Radiance. My wife and I loved all 3 cruises. They each had their pluses. We just did a northbound Radiance with 6 day land tour. The land tour was SPECTACULAR! We got to go the farthest tours were allowed into Denali. And it was a great clear day and lots of pics. It was so good that we are scheduling our 2022 Alaska trip. Will be going to Vancouver and taking whatever ship north. Then doing our own 7 night land tour(planning to stay a couple nights at a hotel all the way in Denali Park). Then end it by taking a southbound cruise back to Vancouver. Great minds think alike 😉 Did a couple of awesome ATV adventures, ziplining, white water rafting. Had a tour to the artic circle scheduled but it was cancelled due to the fires. Since it was cancelled at 6pm, got a rental car and drove to Chena hot springs to spend the night. It was a beautiful 80 mile drive at 11pm with daylight. Got to see a lot of wildlife on our fairbanks to anchorage drive than the train ride to Denali from seward.
  17. I took my elderly parents on the Radiance southbound last August. It was actually the last trip that season as the Radiance was heading to Australia afterwards, I think. We did a four day land tour before hand and had an amazing time. I know everyone says go with Princess or Holland, but we had an amazing time, a great ship (I love the Radiance class ships because you can see the ocean from everywhere), and incredible weather. The one big problem with a one-way itinerary is the air travel, which was by far the worst part of our journey. Everything else went flawlessly. We even got to meet the Native artist that sculpted the totem pole on the pool deck of the ship!
  18. I've been to the Chef's table on Radiance and Empress, both had dedicated rooms. Can you explain why this is not a traditional Chef's table?
  19. This is great!! We are doing a B2B on Radiance next year - and we were lucky enough to score #9256 for both legs...we can’t wait! The aft balcony looked amazing on the deck plans, so your photos helped me decide that we made the best choice!!!
  20. Good morning everyone As usual I’m falling behind in posting. Yesterday was Icy Strait Point. Suite guests were invited to watch the sail in from the ship’s Helipad. Seems like everyone wanted to participate in this event. The weather — Bracing! Windy and spitting rain. We didn’t brave it for long opting quickly to go up to the large enclosed bar/lounge at the front of the ship (name escapes me). Two other ship were in port already. A Seaborne ship and the Radiance of the Seas. Turns out the Radiance was “parked” exactly where we needed to be. (It looks like ISP can only accommodate one ship at a time at its dock.) As we inched closer it was clear that the Radiance was inching away from the dock. They may have been a tad late getting away because we ended being about 30 minutes late before the all clear was given for passengers to go ashore. The great news about this stop was the weather cleared. No wind and partly sunny. The natural beauty of this place is striking. Coming from Arizona, it is always amazing standing in dense forested landscapes. We didn’t plan anything for this port, but it was great to get off the boat and hike around. Today is Hubbard Glacier. Looks like we are going to be really lucky with the weather. The fog has already lifted. Every other day we’ve been socked in with fog and clouds until late in the day. Should make for great viewing of the glacier if this weather holds. We have the ship’s excursion booked for today where we board a smaller boat for up close viewing of the glacier.
  21. So I guess I should by a Drink Package to get the bottled water and specialty coffee drinks all day and use the Suite Lounge to get beer or wine at night. The bottled water and specialty coffee is all day at any bar or coffee shop (except Starbucks- which isn't on the Radiance) Correct? My husband drinks 6-8 bottles of water a day!
  22. Yup, Bob nailed it in one - Serenade and Jewel have the tube-style showers while Radiance and Brilliance have curtains.
  23. Interesting. When I asked for a kettle on Radiance in Alaska a couple of years ago they told me they didn't have any. Same here but live in Canada. Has to be boiling water and I bring my own Yorkshire Gold teabags.
  24. Is there a Starbucks on the Radiance? If so can you use the Refreshment Package for coffee or can you only use the coffee card? Thank you!
