  1. We are going to be arriving in Seward, Alaska on the Radiance on 6/21 and I'm looking at ground transportation options. The earliest, and most reasonably priced that I've found leaves the port in Seward for the Anchorage Airport at 8:00 a.m. Their website says they do this every day and that we will have no problem getting off the ship and to their bus by 8:00, but that makes me a little nervous, especially since they don't appear to have a later bus. The company is Alaska Cruise Transportation. Can anyone familiar with the debarkation process in Seward advise if it is reasonable to arrange ground transport for 8:00? Thanks in advance!
  2. TYI! We are going on the Radiance of the Seas in 25 days, we have MTD and do you have to make advance reservations for dinner each night?
  3. Very disappointing work by the cruise director Cruzin Susan. Tomorrow our first day in Maui absolutely nothing going on except for a dance party. The cruise compass looks as baron as a desert. No headline show , no production show just throw up a movie and job done.
  4. We are sailing Alaska. I have heard that the scenery is breath taking. Is there a place on the ship that has floor to ceiling windows? It would be nice to sit and enjoy the scenery indoors? Thank you!!!
  5. Just booked an 11-night on the Radiance- Sydney to New Zealand. The cruise is in January of 2020 and there is only one person on the Roll Call....which got me to wondering who my fellow passengers would be. Any idea?
  6. HNL TO VANCOUVER .. Big disappointment, but RCI did a great job. Opened VCL, and the best part breakfast in Giovanni's for D+. RCI really needs another Diamond level.
  7. 2nd cruise to Alaska for my DH & I. 1st was on HAL. We were set on I Millie but now wondering on ROTS. We have only gone on 2 cruises. 1st was New Amsterdam & 2nd Summit. If if you have sailed on both what are the pros & cons any specific to Alaska?  The itinerary is the same starting in Vancouver and ending in Anchorage. Sailing inside passage. We are definitely booking a veranda. Good service & helpfull staff is extremely important to us. We also enjoy food. I’m a vegan but my husband is an omnivore. Were usually in bed by 11 so nightlife is not that important to us. We enjoy going to shows. 
  8. Don’t get me wrong, the June 4th 2010 cruise to Alaska was wonderful despite my disappointment with the view. Great service, good food and a great ship but the view out of our cabin was disappointing. Our cabin along with the surrounding cabins (left, right and above) are above the lifeboats, a canopy covers the lifeboats, so what you see when on your balcony is non accessible 15 foot (approx) canopy beyond your railing. No view below the cabin and no view of the water. Side note: while leaving Juno there was a whale swimming alongside the ship, we couldn’t see it, until it swam away from the ship and far enough to clear the canopy. We didn’t bother to investigate the balcony prior to booking the cruise, we’d had a balcony on Freedom and that one was fabulous. Made the assumption that the balcony on the Radiance would be equal, we were wrong. I think like most cruisers we started out on our first cruse in an inside cabin. Next cruise moved to an outside and then finally made the move to a balcony on the Freedom of the Seas. It made a big difference on Freedom and was well worth the extra money but I don’t think it’s worth the extra on Radiance and maybe its sister ships. You might want to check it out before you book. Attached are two views.
  9. Need to know how comfortable is it in the public spaces on the ship? Is it too cool or too warm? Thank you in advance!
  10. Do any of the specialty restaurants on Radiance have an ocean view?
  11. Just wondering if Radiance has the usual free sauna and steam rooms in or adjacent to the Gym locker rooms? We were previously on Legend which had them but a report I read suggested that this wasn't the case on Radiance.
  12. Just wondering what prices people have paid for their deluxe beverage packages on Radiance for sailings out of Sydney? The current price for our sailing next year is AUD 87.68, which also includes the 18% gratuity. We paid AUD 70 for a recent sailing on Voyager out of Singapore, so now wondering if the price is likely to drop?
  13. Someone on my upcoming Alaska cruise on Radiance of the Seas said that RC told them that Radiance does not have little hair dryers in the drawer in the stateroom like other ships. I have been on many RC ships and they have always had hair dryers. Just wondering if this is accurate and is there anyone who has been on Radiance recently. Thanks for your help. I don't want to pack anything extra.
  14. We're doing our first Alaska cruise on the Radiance next month. We are thinking of trying the Chef's Table, which would also be a first for us. I know in general Alaska cruises are more casual, even on formal nights, but wondering if Chef's Table has a stricter dress code. DH would prefer not to pack his suit, so would a dressy collared shirt and tie be enough? Also, while I'm asking, has anyone done the Chef's Table and is it worth it?
  15. Are there USB outlets in the Radiance Oceanview Cabins?
  16. We'll be on Radiance of the Seas this summer in Alaska. I'm wondering if there is anything on Radiance like the Vintages small wine bar on Liberty of the Seas. It's on the Promenade deck 5 and is somewhat cozy with limited seating (<20) and some small comfortable seating outside the entrance. I see on Radiance the English Pub but looking at pictures, it is a much larger affair than Vintages. I also see a Champagne Bar (seats 52) but nothing cozy and warm like the Vintages on Liberty. Can anyone set me straight?
  17. I just noticed an age restriction on the info page about the Radiance suite lounge. Will my kids not be allowed in for the continental breakfast or does this just apply to the evening cocktail hour? They love the windjammer but sometimes it’s nice to avoid the crowd if you just want a croissant. Also, I’m curious if you can grab water or other drinks during the day in this lounge. Thanks!
  18. I just noticed Radiance will be arriving in Singapore on 9/30/20, but the next scheduled cruise is not until 11/4/20 Singapore to Australia. I am guessing that 9/30 to 11/3 Will be Dry Dock time. Does anyone have any information concerning this?
  19. Are there Freestyle Coke Machines on Radiance?
  20. I’m currently on the Radiance as we make our way back to Sydney following a planned port intensive itinerary around New Zealand. Alas, it wasn’t to be due to major storms in the South Island. Our 12 night itinerary now includes five sea days when all is said and done. If anyone has questions about the Radiance experience, I’ll be happy to try to answer. One can only attend so many movies on sea days when it’s rainy, windy and chilly outside. Some passengers are a bit grumpy but all decisions by the captain were made for safety first. I completely agree with him but missing the South Island Fjordlands was a major disappointment as I flew 17 hours nonstop from the US to Sydney to cruise this ship and this itinerary. Kinda like going to Alaska and not seeing the glaciers. Shout out all!
  21. I noticed on the RCCL Radiance of the Seas web page the Concierge Lounge is being referred to as the Suite Lounge. The quote on the page is: "TOP SHELF PRIVILEGES - It’s serenity with a twist of lime. Reserved exclusively for guests of Grand Suite-level accommodations and above, the Suite Lounge presents complimentary continental breakfast and evening drinks. So from croissants to Cosmos, we’ve got your cravings covered. Insider Tip For Grand Suite-level accommodations and above." Does anyone know if the change has been made from Concierge to Suite? Just wondering.
  22. Hi all! We’re considering a balcony stateroom for the May 2020 Hawaii sailing, and I see many photos online showing a divider curtain in the room. Do any of you know if they’re still there? We’ve rigged curtains around our little guy’s crib before but would be very glad to not have to pack the curtains and magnet hooks! Thanks!
  23. With some of the best features from other Royal Caribbean ships, Radiance offers plenty of diversity while maintaining an intimate vibe afforded by its modest size. (Note: An extensive upgrade is scheduled for 2020.) Has anyone else got info on this? What will the upgrade include? If it's true and a descent upgrade it would work out perfectly as I'm considering doing the B2B that goes all the way around Australia in 2021 for my 40th birthday. It would be my 5th cruise with Royal, 2nd time solo, 1st B2B and first time on Radiance. My first cruise was on Rhapsody of the Seas - is Radiance similar? Thanks and happy cruising.
  24. Are children allowed to use the solarium pool while this ship is in AK for designated times ? In Australia/New Zealand there were no children allowed at all but I seem to remember while in AK there were certain time periods allowed. Thanks for your help.
  25. I have a question regarding the oceanview cabins category 2N on deck 2, 3 and 4. I see deck 2 has very few cabins. In your opinion which deck would be the best and why? Thinking of booking oceanview on this ship and interested in everyone's input. Thank you
