A destination cruise not a cruise for the ship.
"However a major concern, one of our party is gluten free celiac, so it is essential that food is labelled and segregated.Ship: Having been on Anthem, Oasis and Indy i would say that Brilliance is way to small for us...."Read More

Overpriced, lacking entertainment & quality food options

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Wombat203
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Embarked in Sydney Australia for 12 day cruise to NZ, embarkation was seamless. Throughout the cruise the staff were friendly & went above & beyond. Cannot fault the staff they are the only redeeming factor in the Royal Caribbean experience. In the rooms there are US outlets only, cannot plug in Australian devices, there are no USB ports. Only option was to rent an adapter from customer ...

Review for a South Pacific Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Lulu family
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

A friend at work recommended a cruise, in a moment of madness we booked through luxury escapes for 10 nights leaving Sydney for New Caledonia and Vanuatu. The ship is tired and showing its age, tattoos looked compulsory, probably with their room number so when they are inebriated they can find their way back. There is nothing interesting to do unless you enjoy drinking, belly flop competitions or ...

DECOMMISSION THIS SHIP

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Bobby_71
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Well where to begin, came on this cruise as I have been on Royal Caribbean cruise ships before, this ship is absolute garbage, the fact this ship is still in service shows me that this ship’s best days are long gone and the company heads are using it as a quick cash grab. Upper Management have an air of scammery going on from freezing multiple people’s accounts twice a day to overcharging for ...

11 Days ex Sydney to Eden, Adelaide, Melbourne and Hobart ( cyclone change)

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Ship was to go to Far North Queensland but due to Cyclone we went south instead. I was happy to go south, but could understand people being disappointed with change, but there was no way we could have gone to Cairns etc. First time on Brilliance, had previously been on Quantum last 4 times, and I actually enjoyed the smaller ship, it took us back to the old days ( well not that old ...

Very Dissapointed with our cruise. Royal Caribbean is on the par with Carnival and P&O

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Liz Muller
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

As we have previously cruised with Royal Caribbean on 8 previous occasions we decided to cruise with them once again. As we considered RC to be of a very high standard .. We chose a 9 night cruise to Adelaide and Melbourne as we wanted to visit Kangaroo Island and town of Hahndorf. Brilliance of the Seas is an older type ship but very well maintained. Our expirations were high but only to be ...

The Great Disappointment

Review for a South Pacific Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas

Felinecruisey
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

After having cruised with P&O and Carnival I was expecting better than what was on offer from Royal Caribbean on this cruise. The embarkation process was quick and easy. Our oceanview cabin was clean and spacious but the interior furnishings like the sofa, were tired looking and in need of upgrading. The bed was not comfortable and we had to get our room attendant to find some mattress toppers ...
