We chose a cruise to Cozumel/Key West and shortly after booking the itinerary was changed. We ended up going to Key west/Nassau/Coco Cay. We did not want to go to Nassau as we had been there so many times before. The change was made months ago, and had nothing to do with recent virus concerns. We tried to get them to let us change to another cruise or to give us an onboard credit but our requests were refused. If we wanted to change the cruise we would lose our deposits. So we went on with the trip and enjoyed it anyway. The food was pretty good. Our dining room server was a highlight. He was fantastic. Our cabin steward was ok. He got a little irritated that my friend and I asked him to split our beds apart. Never had that happen before. We weren't as pleased with the entertainment as we have been on past cruises. The comedian was pretty funny and the impersonator was good. The trivia is something we always enjoy but didn't so much this time. We did a Highlights of Nassau tour and it wasn't worth the money or time. We should have just stayed on the ship. We enjoyed our day in Key West but it was crowded. We got a South Beach cabana at Coco Cay and we had a good time there. Our attendant was very good. I got sick with a stomach virus toward the end and had to spend the last day of the cruise in my room. They gave me free room service and called often to check on me. I went to the infirmary and they treated me well. Read Less

This was our 5th cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas and we were very disappointed. The MDR experience was terrible. The quality of the food was not good and serving roasted turkey any night is just plain cheap food and on our 5 night cruise it was offered twice. The menu choices have decreased and the items are mostly just plain cheap food. What everyone has always looked forward to was LOBSTER night and forget that there is not one. They offer a salmon ever night and it is the worst salmon I have ever tasted. Serve at least Norwegian if not Alaskan but the cheap farmed salmon they served is bad and way over cooked. During my 5 nights in the MDR the only thing I would say was really good was the escargot, that they do well. The Windjammer did have some pretty good food. The burgers are done the way they should be and the pizza is not bad. The choices are very good for breakfast and lunch and we cruised thru a few nights after dinner and it is probably a better choice than the MDR for dinner. We attended 4 nights of the main event shows and only one was acceptable. They are still doing a production show that they did 5 years ago, time to move on. We had booked another cruise on the Brilliance for this December and will go thru with it in hopes they get there game together. I feel that the Captain needs to get his Ship together and take care of business. Never did see him about the ship yet when we sail on Celebrity the Ship's Captain was always visible and even at the Dock at each port to welcome everyone back on board. Read Less

We live nearby but hadn’t cruised this ship since 2014. Booked it only 90 days out and ended up with an inside cabin as it was the only available Accessible. The deck 4 location was convenient to dining and Centrum. The ship was easy to board and mostly easy to get around even on Day 1. The staff are all pleasant and cheerful although not overly so. We enjoyed the cruise overall. The dining room staff and the food were excellent although the buffet in the MDR at breakfast and lunch was a bit ho-hum the menu items we tried were all good. Maybe because it’s an older ship the internet was slower than any prior Royal cruise I’ve experienced and the app and tv are not interactive so you cannot see your folio in real time. You can see the Daily Activities and deck plans and if you have restaurant reservations they show up in your calendar. Read Less
