Enjoyable Holiday: Brilliance of the Seas Cruise Review by GLENDA RAINBIRD
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Middle East
The only problem the 4 of us had with the ship is their drink prices I will list a few for you to compare and have used a currency converter to show them in GB pounds - bottle of budweiser $6.00 or Â£3.85, bottle of strongbow $6.50 or Â£4.17, a cocktail I enjoyed Lava Flow $8.00 or Â£5.13 and a small glass of sparkling wine cost $7.00 or Â£4.50. My friend bought a glass of house wine with her evening meal in the restaurant and it cost over Â£10 a glass! The only other gripe we had was the lack of atmosphere around the pool, background music was too quiet to hear unless you had a sunbed around the pool, very difficult to get - and not much fun and games happening which we usually enjoy.
The evening entertainment was ok not brilliant, a man who impersonated Elton John was great and we enjoyed the magician and 2 acrobats, but the main show Tango In Buenos Aires was not our cup of tea and we did not go to the last show BUT this is a personal opinion other people raved about the Tango show.
We all loved the holiday, the ship, the staff are brilliant, but spent a fortune on drinks and felt ripped off. One last thing I had my teeth whitened on board, happy with result but my bottom gums got burnt and hurt for most of the rest of the cruise. They say it is 100% safe but it is not, when I went back the Manager was lovely and gave me a 50% discount on my treatment, I could not buy any gum numbing gel on board and just had to put up with the discomfort, I also could not brush my bottom teeth because it made my gums bleed.
I have enjoyed my 4 cruises with Royal Caribbean but will probable look for future cruises with ships who offer all inclusive or lower alcohol prices. Less
Cabin review: Q4555 Interior Stateroom
Great cabin no complaints, larger than some ships, plenty of storage space, take some extra hangers.Shower room small but expected, no toiletries except shampoo in a dispenser and soap. No chocolate on pillow any more. Great service from cabin boy.Read All Interior Stateroom (Q) Reviews >>
