Ship Facts: Brilliance of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Brilliance of the Seas Deck Plans
Spectacular Landscapes
The Brilliance is the smallest ship we have sailed on but it had everything we expected. The cabin size is OK and the balcony too. It sometimes got a bit tight in the dining room as some tables were too close together.

This was the 3rd cruise this year with RCCL with another one coming up in November. We were a bit upset to find that the menu is the same on each ship. We would have expected something more Scandinavian but it was exactly the same as in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean. The quality of the food in the dining room was fine however, the Windjammer could have done with a little improvement. The selection of meats and the presentation of foods lacked a little choice, taste and style. The sushis for example were the cheapest make and the deserts nothing special. Our state room attendant was very friendly and helpful and would go out of her way to fulfill our wishes. The dining room and Windjammer staff could have done more 'service with a smile'. We had open dining therefore were served by several waiters.

We loved the choice of ports. It was an exciting cruise with beautiful towns and spectacular landscapes.

Stavanger and Alesund are fascinating towns with lots of history and more to do and see than you can in the few hours in port.
