Ship Facts: Brilliance of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Brilliance of the Seas Deck Plans
Not too Brilliant

The first RC cruise from Tampa of 2013. 1/3 of Crew was new - they worked hard to fix the mistakes. Great Boarding and Unboarding. Stateroom with Balcony ($$$) to enjoy the views and have Room Service - breakfast was set for 8:00 - 8:30. At 8:30 we saw none of the dozen plus folks who had posted menu on door last night had any trays out, asked Attendant what to do - 'call room service'. At 9:00 they called back to say order was ready to deliver - we said No Thanks and ran to catch an event. Guest Relations said 'unexpected number of requests for Breakfast' . Well, we had to put menu on door by 2:00am - so they had 6 hours to figure out what to do.

Wife attended 'Baking Lecture' - they put it Pool Side which was crowded with people using the Pool - no one thing clearly.

We went to a Beer Tasting ($) - of the 12 Bars on ship they picked the crowded sports bar. The lecturer was only Bartender - 20 folks for class - 20 folks to watch the TV's and drink. Delay of 20 minutes to get another Bartender - no one thing clearly.

First night in Main Dining it took 1:45 minutes - by last night they got it down to 1:00 - the crew finally got it together. Food was OK - was better on Princess, Celebrity, and Holland America.
