Nice cruise to Norwegian Fjords: Brilliance of the Seas Cruise Review by kms2012
Overall Member Rating
Nice cruise to Norwegian Fjords
Destination: Baltic Sea
What let it down? Firstly the price of drinks and wine on board are far too expensive, especially when you are forced into paying a 15% gratuity on top of what are already inflated prices - two small glasses of Sauvignon blanc Â£12.00? Essentially you need to get the basic cruise for a really good price, or your holiday will work out very expensive if you like a glass of wine or More two!
The excursions are also very, very dear (for this cruise), so much so that we booked our own tours in all the ports and saved a fortune in the process - despite RCL advising us via the port lecture and in room TV that it would be difficult to do things on your own and we might be disappointed! - As I say this was not the case on this cruise, it was easy.
The Port Lecture was merely a vehicle to sell the tours RCL had left available and there was very little information on the actual destination/port - I don't mind them selling/pushing the tours, but they should have called it "Excursion Information/Sales" not Port Lecture!
However, these points aside, we had a great time and the weather in Norway was fantastic.
