I liked the timing, price, and destinations as well as the number of days at sea. It was just the right amount for my 3 grandchildren. I was impressed with the organization of the boarding staff and the helpfulness of the staff on ... Read more

We have done several Disney cruises as a family (with our now 7 year old daughter and sometimes both sets of grandparents) so our bar was set fairly high before this cruise. We decided to do this cruise last minute while other family ... Read more

I was one of a group of 15 former high school classmates and various spouses and friends who went as group. The trip was planned by one classmate who does this for a living! We had a grand time. Loved not having to worry about where or ... Read more

The cabins were as expected for a cruise ship. If you take advantage of the activities you won't spend much time there anyway. Getting on and off ship was excellent and quick. Food was amazing! You could use the buffet or dinner venue. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our 1st Anniversary. The cruise fit the dates and the port we wanted of Key West. So Key West is the reason we went on this ship. Embarking was great, no problems. Stateroom was good, attendant good. Loved the ... Read more

I went on this cruise with my sister over spring break. We have both cruised RC previously. My last RC cruise (Adventure of the Seas-2011) was not up to par, and I have spoken to cruise friends who said their experiences were lacking ... Read more

Destinations and ports of call were the reason we chose the cruise. We did an excursion through the cruise line. We took an island tour, visited a turtle hatchery and swam with the sting rays. In Cozumel we took a cab to the beach. It ... Read more

This cruise was a component of a tour. We enjoyed the dinning, entertainment and shopping. One of the features of this ship was the temperature of the water in the swimming facilities. The performers at the evening entertainment were ... Read more

Wanted to try Royal Caribbean to compare it to Carnival. There were things we liked better about both cruise lines. We loved the layout of the Brilliance and it's a beautiful ship for it's age. We liked the shows on Brilliance better than ... Read more

I've had great experiences with Royal years ago and after dipping my toe in the water with Carnival, I came back. It was my daughter's Spring Break so we generally travel somewhere and cruises have been great fun and good experiences ... Read more

Wonderful cruising experience. I traveled with my twin teenage daughters. They had fun meeting other teens and with the activities that were organized for their age group. Workout facility was clean and enjoyable. Food quality was ... Read more

High school reunion "Friends and Family" cruise. We have done it for the past several years but there is not enough to do in the evenings on this ship, poor turnout to the planned events and venues. The bars and pool deck should ... Read more

This ship has plenty to do and lots of places to just chill and relax. Our favorite place to grab lunch or a quick snack was the Park Cafe in the Solarium on Deck 11. The ship staff is helpful and very friendly. The food in the main dining ... Read more

We have been on a Royal Carribean cruise before and this one did not meet my expectations. Sailed on the Brilliance of the Seas, which must be an older ship as amenities were somewhat behind the times. There was only one outdoor pool for ... Read more

Legends of Pittsburgh team event was fabulous. Lots of fun at the casino, not very lucky but fun. The dining was excellent, much better than previous cruise. We were able to move about the ship easily and enjoy different events. I ... Read more

We needed a short getaway and this one fit the bill! What a beautiful ship! I will not lie I was not expecting much since this ship is not the newest and biggest in the Royal fleet. I was blown away by how pretty this ship is and how much ... Read more

Had a great trip. Some quick advice -- do not pick a room that shares a wall with the centrum. We had a noise issue the entire time from as early as 5 am till nearly midnight. You can skip the main stage shows-- they're pretty ... Read more

Embarkation was smooth and quick, as was disembarkation. We had an interior cabin. My daughter and her two children shared a room and we could barely move. It was extremely small and the beds were hard. But outside of the cabin, where you ... Read more

What a wonderful experience we had!!! This cruise departed from Tampa, which is just 30 minutes from my home. The ship was beautiful, and the service was perfect. The daily papers that were placed in our cabin listed the activities and ... Read more

I chose this cruise because: we 'do RC' (this was my 6th cruise with them), I can drive to port rather than fly, and the dates fit. It was not the "100% perfect if you combine all that RC has to offer" cruise, but many ... Read more
