Default Anyone sailed on Radiance of the seas to Alaska?

Is it possible to go swimming outdoors or is it really too cold? are the hot tubs available on board Or are they really crowded? Just wondering if this was a good boat to choose for an alsakna cruise? Any advice would be great

Hi Dakota,
If you like the itinary, I think Radiance in Alaska would be great. There is a special that airs on the Travel Channel with Radiance in Alaska, awesome show, try to catch it.

We cruised Infinity in Alaska and yes the pools are open outside, but a little chilly, but people were using the hot tubs.

Hi Donna,
Due to the fact that the radiance is smaller- did you ever find that the facilities were overcrowded?

Hi ELectra,
Nope, didn't notice any over crowding. I especially loved the way the Windjammer Cafe is layed out, different kinds of food stations and dual, same on both sides, so there are never any lines. You go to another area to pick up drinks/coffee,iced tea, ets. We never had a problem finding an empty table, not always by the window.

Radiance has been the most beautiful ship I've cruised on, you'll love it!

I did write a review with some pics at the end:

Also look at other factors with RCI, mainly no ship naturalists- which greatly enhance an Alaska voyage, no Glacier Bay either. Any sailing is certainly full of choices.
