We cruise once or twice a year but this was our first with RC. What we liked: - The variety of foods available in the Minstrel dining room and Windjammer Cafe (help yourself dining) was almost always tasty and pleasing to our pallet… however, see additional notes on dining below. - All staff and crew we encountered were warm, pleasant and eager to please. - The layout of the ship was ...

This is the annual repositioning trip from Boston to Southern Florida done each October after the Fall Foliage season in N.E. is over. It is "peopled" by many New Englanders who use it as a annual vacation or even to "move" to Florida for the colder months. It features usually about seven days at sea, and the median age is "senior retirees". This year there were 27 Pinnacles and over 400 Diamond ...

My wife and I just returned from a 13 night repositioning cruise onboard the Brilliance of the Seas. We had a nice time, as usual. This was our Third Cruise on board the Brilliance. We don't have any Major complaints. We always get good service from the crew and we enjoy Royal Caribbean. The ship is just the right size and well maintained. THE FOOD: The food in the Windjammer seemed ...

Boarding was the quickest and easiest we've ever had and we've been on many cruises. The ship is old but in excellent shape and constantly being cleaned, polished and shined by very friendly crew members. After the usual embarkation day lunch rodeo we were pleased to be invited into our balcony room at 1;00pm. Another pleasant surprise was our luggage was waiting for us at our door. This was a ...

This was our fourth cruise. My husband and I were so looking forward to the same wonderful service, excitement and entertainment we were used to having sailed on the freedom of the seas. We were some of the younger passengers in our fifties, while the median age seemed to be 70 to 80. Apparently this cruise had over 350 diamond members which left little service or preference for non-diamond ...

This was our 9th cruise--our 1st with RCCL. Our cruise started with the "ping" of our Sea Pass card as we entered the Brilliance. We were wowed by the beauty of this ship. The centrum is wonderful. We loved the glass elevators and all the glass to see outside. We found the Brilliance to be very easy to navigate. There are Smart Boards to help you can find your way around easily. We found these ...

Since our last Caribbean cruise several years ago I had come to believe there was not much more to experience in that area, charming as it is. There were other worlds to conquer, so to speak. But last year we heard about a Royal Caribbean repositioning cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas out of Boston that acquaintances had enjoyed so much that they signed up for a repeat this year. When we ...

I had a wonderful time as a solo traveler on this ship. There were plenty of activities to keep me busy when I wanted it and was very relaxing with 7 days at sea. The ship is elegant with shows going on most of the time in the centrum. The shows in the main showroom were very good. The food was very good most nights .though not excellent. I liked that they had a "classics" section on the menu so ...

I just returned from a 13 night relocation cruise on the Brilliance from Boston to Tampa. I have sailed on this ship 3 times but this is the first in over 4 years and it has been refurbished. We selected an inside cabin this year. We have had balcony rooms before but we had a very pleasant time in an inside room last year on another ship and thought we would try it again. Not so good this time. ...

Ship was beautiful! Large cruise group aboard this cruise-over 200 people! Many fun cruise critic events planned including one informal,one formal meet and greet,cabin crawl,slot pulls,and a great final luncheon. Food ranged from ok to good to once in a while pretty good. I thought the lamb and prime rib entrees were excellent. There could have been a bettter selection of dinner entrees,a few ...
