Sunny in Alaska on Royal Caribbean cruise


Sun. It’s actually really really sunny outside as the Radiance of the Seas enters the Inside Passage en route to our first port of call at Ketchikan. Of course it’s Alaska, so temperatures are only high of about 60, but some intrepid cruisers are actually in the outdoor pool. And the hot tubs are crowded. I prefer my little patch of sunlight on my private balcony.


But when I can pry myself away I’ve been wandering around the ship and it surely is a pretty one – the solarium pool, with covered dome, where the decor includes giant elephant sculptures and flowing waterfalls, is particularly lovely. The 12-deck atrium certainly does its thing as the ship’s active hub – live music filters up all the decks and balconies with railings allow you to check out the scene (venues off the atrium include a champagne bar).
