Ship Facts: Brilliance of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Brilliance of the Seas Deck Plans
See Egypt and the Nile
This Eastern Med and Greek Isle cruise left Barcelona on 30 November, a wet departure but after that the weather was fine. Limassol had thunder storms but those who ventured ashore said trip was well worth getting wet.

We missed Palermo due to the pilot being unable to board the ship and direct us through the Messina Straight. RCCL need to revisit their scheduling as this has proved a difficult time of the year due to weather fronts being experienced throughout the Med.

The Captain did a grand job getting us to the various stops in a safe and comfortable manner, however, feel RCCL need a Plan B should a port be inaccessible due to weather conditions. There must be some way an alternative can be scheduled in at last minute.

Small shower area but manageable.

TV needs better films on offer without charge and also flat screen should be available with the ability to hire DVD's for viewing at leisure.

Entertainment programme very similar to that of November 2008 so only a couple of variations on offer there.

Waiters very nice and so helpful but some little tweeks here and there would improve dining room experience immensely.

Stateroom curtains need to be a bit brighter as they are looking tired and dull.

Overall for a category D1 stateroom I was satisfied and room steward was very good although relationship took a few days to settle in as he seemed a bit abrupt at first.

Came back from the cruise feeling totally relaxed and I am sure this was due to the wonderful staff employed by RCCL on the Brilliance of the Seas. Every one of them in their own way made our cruise one to remember and wish for another trip on their beautiful ship.
