We've never been to the British Isles and we signed up while on a previous cruise. Great ports, mostly: Dover, Edinburgh, Glasgow(ok), Inverness/Loch Ness, Dublin and Guernsey. We did our own touring and did not use the ship excursion. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports, and they did not disappoint. The ship, however, was another story. We had high hopes from the start, as our cabin steward Jose was perfection. Very friendly, couldn't do enough to serve us. He was ... Read more

Have just come home from 3B2B cruises on Vision of the Seas. Food repeated over and over no changes in the menu? Lunch menu in the Aquaris is the same every day. Why are'nt food of the country you are visiting incorporated into the ... Read more

Arrival at the port was early but our cases were loaded which left us quite a lot of free time in Amsterday (only a 30 minute walk from port to centre of Amsterdam). Check in busy as you would expect. We were in cabin 3124. Cabin was ... Read more

We booked this itinerary because we've never seen this area of Europe. We brought 2 preschool-aged kids and decided to book it for the late spring so that we would avoid summer crowds. We started and ended in Amsterdam and stayed 1 ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary but the food in the Aquarius Dining Room was tasteless for the most part, no seasonings! The menus lacked any enthusiasm. The first 3 days there were great choices but it went downhill from there, ... Read more

Service was excellent but the staff is stretched to the limit food was mediocre - what used to be formal night fare was now to be paid extra for and the quality of the food was far below the usual for RCCL it seems that the higher ... Read more

What a great trip this was. The weather didn't cooperate half the time but when it did, it was beautiful. I think my number one tip for anyone going on this cruise is to relax. There is plenty to do right in the ports- including private ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on our July 13, 2012 cruise. Previous reviews have covered many aspects of the Brilliance of the Seas. I found those reviews so helpful I would like to add additional information. The ship was in fine shape. ... Read more

I took Brilliance of the Seas last June from Amsterdam to Geiranger, Alesund, Molde and Bergen, Norway last June. It was really a wonderful trip. The entertainment on the ship was the best I have seen. The cruise director was highly ... Read more

As we boarded our favorite ship "The Brilliance" there was an atmosphere of adventure as the ship was only doing 2 cruises to the circle and this was the second one. There were 44 different nationalities aboard and so it was quite a ... Read more

Had a fantastic cruise on the BOS around the Norwegian Fjords. The ship was looking in very good condition and our balcony cabin was good value giving the additional living space we like. We arrived fairly early at the cruise terminal ... Read more

This was my first cruise so I wasn't sure what to expect but it was a pleasant surprise. My friend and I booked a balcony room which was ample enough space for being on a ship. I was a little nervous about getting seasick, but didn't ... Read more

Just returned from this cruise, sailing on the 26th May, and had a fantastic time. So first up, the ports of call on this cruise were beautiful, and Geiranger is possibly my favourite port of call to date, some breathtaking views! Flam ... Read more

The Brilliance of the Seas is an older ship but is well maintained. There are plenty of public areas so that the ship does not seem crowded (other than the Windjammer Cafe - more on that later). Compared to my most recent Cunard cruise, ... Read more

My wife and I enjoy the smaller ships so The Vision of the Sea's was a size we've been on before, much more intimate and easy to get from one end to the other. We cruised the British Isles from Amsterdam on May 22nd - June 3rd. The crew ... Read more

Staff is so sweet. Everybody wants to please you. The room was very clean (I reserved an interior cabin). The activities on board are so, so, Some excursions too expensive. The shuttle bus will cost you a lot just to go to dowtown. We had ... Read more
