Our cruise was very nice. St. John's NB should not be a stop. There just isn't enough there to warrant a full day. Could be skipped altogether. Bar Harbor and Halifax were outstanding ports. Did not see the colors we thought we would. ... Read more

Only a couple of things on this cruise annoyed me. I understand that people do travel in groups. Does this mean that they are entitled to "save" a bunch of seats in the theater. We arrived early to pick our seats, but were ... Read more

We started our cruise by arriving in Boston 2 days early. Thoroughly enjoyed Boston, walked the Freedom Trail and stopped at several pubs along the way. We had dinner at the Union Oyster House and it was very disappointing. High prices ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers, having over 25 cruises through a couple of decades. Brilliance of the Seas has many positives. We particularly enjoyed that (1) it had a Gluten-free ‘island’ in the Windjammer buffet; excellent to the ... Read more

This was another bucket list trip that we just loved. October is the best time to do this cruise and we timed the leaf change just about right. The ship was in great shape and the staff for the most part were friendly and responsive. ... Read more

Best part was Sam and Rig in the breakfast dining room. Our room attendant Clement was fabulous. We ate all our meals (except breakfast) in Windjammer everyday. The staff was wonderful. However the food was very disappointing. Variety was ... Read more

Did the 9 day New England and Canada cruise on the Liberty of the seas. Overall, a good cruise. I had never cruised on a larger ship like the Liberty before, but it was great. Checked in and on the ship in less than an hour. In ... Read more

Overall we were very pleased with our sail. However, as long-time, experienced cruisers, we were somewhat disappointed with certain aspects of our cruise. Staff: Customer service by staff was outstanding. Special kudos to Verina ... Read more

This was our first cruise from the very first moments of mass confusion once we boarded the ship set the tone for want was to follow for the next 10 days. There is very little, if any customer service available. The lines at the service ... Read more

Food- Very disappointed with the food on the Liberty of the Seas. The food was terrible. The temperature of food in the Main Dining area was warm at best. Never hot. Beef was not edible. Looked like processed beef. Beef was full of fat and ... Read more

thank goodness for good weather and beautiful foliage because the ship had many shortcomings especially a lack of enough entertainment after dinner and shows. Nothing to do on the night that clocks were put back. Very poor tv programming. ... Read more

This was standard Royal Caribbean fare. We have 137 nights and it is our most frequented cruise line. The junior suite is like all others. Food in the Windjammer, edible but uninspired. We mostly eat in the specialty restaurants, ... Read more

We went on the sister ship a few years ago The Jewel of the Sea and it was beautiful ship as is the Brilliance, so we thought we would try them again. We liked the ship and the buffet setup better than most other ships as they have ... Read more

Just off BOTS (10/11/15). I was on a 7 night cruise to New England/Canada with stops in Portland, ME/Bar Harbor, ME/Saint John, New Brunswick/Halifax, Nova Scotia. Embarkment went very smoothly (until their computer system went down). ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Grandeur (plus two prior on Enchantment), all out of Baltimore. The big plus for us is being able to drive just ninety minutes to the port of departure. We're both in our mid-sixties, and over the past 38 ... Read more

I was very hesitant about this cruise after reading others reviews about this being a "training" ship for the staff, poor service given and poor food choices. We have cruised at least a dozen times but this was our first RCCL. It ... Read more

Having sailed Royal Caribbean twice before, but almost 10 years ago, I expected the special first class treatment I received those times. This cruise was a huge disappointment though, as Royal Caribbean nickel-and-dimed the passengers ... Read more

I would have rated this cruise a 4 instead of a 3 if it weren't for the crazy, mixed up My Time Dining. I chose the cruise for the itinerary and it was wonderful. The weather was also wonderful which made up for the lack of fall ... Read more
