My husband and I just completed our very first cruise on Royal Caribbean's brilliance of the Seas. We boarded the ship in Boston and proceeded to Portland, Maine, Bar Harbor, Maine, Saint Johns and Halifax,
Canada. The weather was perfect which helped make our cruise most enjoyable. The ship was spotless and the crew were very eager to please us. We booked our own excursions on line on our own rather than through RC. We saved a lot of money and the guides were very knowledgeable. We saw everything that the more expensive excursions saw and we had time on our own to explore. The shows on the ship were top notch and entertaining. We would highly recommend this trip and this ship.
