The Ship

This was our home for our seven night alaskan cruise.  She is called, the Radiance of the Seas.  This class of ship is know for all of its glass.  They have huge windows, which is great when scenery is one of the main attractions in Alaska.

Michael and I really enjoy cruising.  Once you are on the ship, they meet your every need.  Each day you wake up in a new port.  O'yes, you can forget about the endless food opportunities!!

Here is our room.  Yes, we spoiled ourselves and got a suite.  We enjoy the perks and extra room a suite provides. 

On this ship you could go out onto the helipad!  We took advantage of the great views from this area. 
Can you see the captain sailing the ship? 
That is the bridge up on the top.

They had a solarium area, which was very nice.  It had a hot tub and pool.  They also had the Park Cafe, which served breakfast and really yummy lunch sandwiches.  Michael enjoyed the salt water pool.

Here is a picture of the outside pool.  I found it funny with the snowy mountains in the background.  On days when the sun came out, people were swimming and sun bathing. 

Looking up in the Centrum
The Centrum was the area for different demonstrations during the cruise.  They also had nightly music and people would dance.  On the second level was a coffee shop that served Starbucks coffee.  Michael liked that!!!!

Here is the view of the main dinning room.  I will share more about the food and dining later.  It was first class service and was a nice way to wrap up our days.
My next post will be all about Juneau.  At this port we walked around a glacier and ziplined through the rainforest.  Stay tuned..............
