Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
This was my 10th cruise on RCI. I have to say the last few years I had been finding that the service was not what it used to be but on this cruise this cruise was not the case. We had the BEST dining room service that we have had in years. Our waiter and assistant waiter went beyond what was expected and regularly told us if we were not happy to let them know right away as they wanted to meet our expectations!
The Brilliance is due to go into dry dock for some serious renovations. I have been on ships due for dry dock before and I was quite worried when I found out this one was going in soon. I was on Grandeur years ago and it was a total disaster. I again was surprised to find the ship was still in over all very good condition and clean. Much of the furniture is showing it's age and needing to be replaced but other than that no complaints. We did hear of some plumbing problems on the ship and we did have a short period where our toilet didn't work but it was quickly resolved. More The crew is doing a great job keeping the ship up.
It seems that when they designed this ship they also did an amazing job of using the space on it compared to some of the other ships we have been on.
Over all we were very happy with this cruise and can't wait for the next one!! Less

Cabin review: D1 Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Best cabin we ever had on RCI. Loved the darker wood work and cabin seemed to have extra storage such as shelves down the center of the closet.Read All Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony (D1) Reviews >>
