  1. Booking Radiance class and I have the choice of 7600, 7092 and 7094. They are all listed as partially Obstructed, but the are on the hump and obstruction is minimal. Do 7092 and 7094 have larger balconies, and which is preferred? I stayed in 9092 years ago and loved the larger balcony, but don't know if it is the same on Deck 7.
  2. Have cabin choice of 4500 - 4503 which are near theatre and 4546 or 4542 which are near casino.Also 4542 is next to a white space. Thinking this could be a cleaning cupboard. What cabin would you choose.
  3. Hi all, We just got back from our Alaska adventure and wanted to post some info on the post-cruise land tour as well as the shipboard portion. This is not our first cruise, nor our first with RCCL/RCI. In fact, our first cruise with them was for our honeymoon 30 years ago, Southern Caribbean from San Juan on the Song of Norway (I still have the ship boarding cards!). We've cruised alone and with family/friends. Here's a reposting of my review on the cruise section of CC. We wanted to go to Alaska, and picked this cruise because of the Vancouver departure and one-way itinerary. We
  4. I was planning to write this report when I got home to West Palm Beach, but our flight from LAX has been delayed almost 2 hours, so I have some time on my hands. On a side note, LAX has got to be the worst airport I have ever - what a dump! So, to start my review I need to go back a ways. We moved to FL in 2016 from VA, and one day my wife found this flyer in the mail - it was for a travel show. She suggested that I go, and I did. At the time, we were really looking at a 10-day partial PC Christmas cruise on NCL Jade for 2018. We already had our Navigator Christmas Cruise for 2017 b
  5. We are planning a Transpacific in April 2023 and if we choose to go with Royal the ships would be either the Radiance or Ovation. Huge difference. On the one hand with 11 sea days the entertainment and activities on the Ovation makes it a contender. However, the most important part of the cruise for us is the ports in Tahiti. How would they handle the 4000+ visitors. The Radiance being a much smaller ship would have less of an impact on the ports. Thoughts anyone?
  6. Hi, I have just received an email advising that a FCC has been sent to our TA for our cancelled cruise 16th Jan 22 . First we have heard and I was talking to our TA this afternoon and it wasn’t mentioned. I’m hoping it’s an error. Has anyone else received this email. Thanks janice
  7. I’ve searched online and on here and can’t seem to find out when Radiance of the Seas was last refurbished and what exactly was done. Anyone have any details?
  8. Does anyone have a preference on balcony cabins forward of the life boats on Radiance Class ships? I'm not really interested in the deck 7 balconies with the extension and low divider. Does it make much difference whether you are on deck 8, 9, 10 or 11? We are currently booked on deck 8 and there are a few on the higher decks. Not sure what, if any, difference there is being higher up. I'd probably jump on the deck 11 cabins just to try them out, but there aren't any available.
  9. Hello Royal friends! I am not too familiar with RCCL so please help me out! On Radiance, aft balconies appear to have 2 loungers and a large sized balcony. Are there any regular balconies (i.e. starboard/port) with those too? Oh and any chance for an Amplified Radiance by 2022? Thanks!
  10. After leaving this site I went to my local tv news web page and got a cruise related ad on their page. I kept looking at it and wondering what was bothering me about it. I think realized whomever published it took a stock photo of Radiance for their ad, but just stretched it to fit their ad space. I don't think its an illusion created by the angle. So I present to you the ultra-stretched Radiance of the Seas. I'd book a cruise on her!
  11. Any information on the best (quietest) JS? Although under the Windjammer, those fantail corners look appealing. All those deck 10 JS cabins seem to be under "something." Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  12. I'm looking into a sailing on Jewel OTS and noticed that the deck 10 forward balcony cabins seem to be free of any over hang from above. I can't find any pictures of these cabins, but 1500 is available on the sailing I'm looking at. We've sailed this class of ship quite a few times, so i'm familiar with the layout of the ship. Long walk to the Windjammer from here, but it will help burn the calories 🙂 In any case, does anyone have pictures or info on cabins 1500 - 1520(ish)? All of my searches have turned up empty.
  13. New to the booking of suites so looking for some opinions. Looking at Jan 2022 (should be far enough out...) 5 day cruise on the Radiance for 3 of us. There seems to be about a $500 difference between the jr suite and the 1 bedroom grand suite. Currently one of the sailings has an aft grand suite available and that is intriguing to us.
  14. I’ve booked GS cabin 1552 on Serenade which is the first cabin forward from the hump. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on Radiance class and I’m wondering if there’s a door at the hallway entrance that is closed at night. If so, it’ll be right where my room is and I know from experience that those doors get slammed continuously at night with people coming and going. If so, I will try to change cabins but there’s only one other available at present. Will a slamming door be a problem?
  15. We have a cruise scheduled for nov 12th 2021 on the radiance. W have friends who want to join us, but we cant find this sailing available on any website.. This cruise for us used to be on the explorer, but rccl in their infinite wisdom switched the ships and itineraries so that we would now miss the abc's...Their only comment was that the cruise was similar...I did not even know about the change from rccl and had to find about the switch here on cruise critic...I know that we have a few TA's that surf these waters and anyone that has an idea if this cruise is actually happening, please help m
  16. Looking to book on the Raidiance and wondering if the aft balconies get soot on them?
  17. Just received an email that our 1/7/2022 cruise on the Explorer is now canceled and we can transfer onto the Radiance. I dot know rccl reasoning for this. They identified in the email that the itinerary is "similar destinations" to the original Explorer cruise, however looking at the Radiance cruise schedule, it is in no way similar destinations. Get your act together and keep the people happy to enable you to stay afloat. Grahaminca
  18. She's going from Vancouver to San Pedro after the Alaska season, but what is she doing after that 9/24/21 cruise? She's in Miami on 10/24/21, so I'm assuming there's a Panama Canal trip in between, and I'm also guessing it's not showing because it's before 11/1/21 and over 7 days. But, I'd like to get an idea. We have cruises that I could L&S if I knew where she was going after San Pedro. Thanks!
  19. Alaska itineraries are out for 2022! We've already done Ovation to Alaska. Now I'm considering Radiance or Serenade. We've never sailed Radiance class... any preference for one over the other? Also, would you choose an itinerary with Vancouver, Sitka, Juneau, Hubbard Glacier, and Ketchikan OR Seward, Hubbard Glacier, Juneau, Skagway, Haines, Icy Point Strait, Ketchikan, and Vancouver? We've already been to Juneau and Skagway...really wondering about Sitka vs Seward, Haines, and Icy Point Strait.
  20. Good afternoon, For the past month, I have been looking at a few different cruises from Brisbane to the South Pacific on the Radiance of the Seas. There were a few different itineraries that I was looking at between November 2021 and February 2022. I went on Royal Caribbeans website this morning, and all of those cruises have disappeared. Now I can't find any of them on any other travel website either. Have all these sailing on the Radiance been cancelled??
  21. Photo of Radiance Of The Seas in Juneau Alaska on August 14, 2018 as seen from Mount Roberts Tramway docked next to Holland America Line ms Amsterdam. Note: I am missing cruising so much, as I am sure many of you are as well, that I am going through past cruise photos and memories.
  22. Well since cruising is not on our agenda for 2020 I figured I could relive one of our favorites. I was thinking if anyone wanted to jump in and add their experience (even if it was a different week/year) we could turn this into an amazing experience. Let's just pretend we were together. Hello everyone and welcome to our cruise to Alaska. We are Bill and Marie from the Seattle area and have been cruising since 2010. We had booked Alaska cruises several times in the past but always cancelled them. I think the primary reason we had cancelled before was not wanting to spend our precio
  23. Surprising a beloved and popular ship in the RCL fleet is up for sale. I guess anything below 100,000 GT is at risk of being sold.
  24. Not only can they NOT do New Zealand for next three months, but they can't do Alaska either. Unless the PVA is turned over for 3 months allowing them to go to Seattle which has its own issues too. Gee should be interesting. I mean the FLA and East coast ships might fare better but the Pacific area is gonna really hurt the company. Feel bad for the Officers and crew and all the passengers who had TA and trips. Wondering if Australia will allow them to cruise around Australia? Time will tell. Take care down under you two great ships that I have been on both.
  25. Trying to rebook a North Bound Inside Passage Cruise for July 2021 on Radiance. Does anyone know what the difference is between a 1G and 3G spacious ocean view balcony. On deck 9 the 1G rooms are cheaper on Starboard than the 3G on Port, which seems contrary to my understanding that Starboard is better for North Inside Passage. Can anyone enlighten me?
