Went with my mother (81yo) but found some of the distances from ship to shore difficult for her. Was disappointed that water was not supplied to the rooms. It cost $US2.00 per bottle. Wifi had to be purchased and that was about $US178 ... Read more

It has always been my dream to see the Greek Isles and this cruise offered that as well as several other ports. There were six of us traveling, 2 adults, 1 teen and 3 children, and there was something for everyone both on and off the ship. ... Read more

Trip was planned by friends as a gift to a graduate. I went along for the destinations. There wasn't enough time in ports of call. Didn't know alternate tours were offered when Cannes was canceled. Amenities were missing in the cabins. Too ... Read more

We selected this cruise because of the long list of ports of call. The opportunity to visit so many countries and still have a few days to relax at sea was very appealing and the cruise did not disappoint. Our favorite destinations were ... Read more

Where should I start? Our Cruising experience began in Barcelona. We had arrived the night before and explored the morning before departure at 3 PM on the Hop on Hop of Bus/ Barcelona Bus Touristic. This turned out to be informative and ... Read more

Chose this particular cruise for two reasons. One we like RC and secondly we thought it was a particularly good itinerary. Have to say initial thoughts on the Brilliance were not very good. Thought there was no "wow" factor ... Read more

We much preferred this over the mega ships as we never had to wait in line at the buffets or any of the special little food places. The line at the Guest Services was minimal at most times. The ship was very clean. Room service was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have sailed on Brilliance before, and on Navigator, and Brilliance was a much better experience for us. It's a smaller ship, but has a much more relaxed feel. It has more public seating areas around the ... Read more

The first time that we take a 2 weeks off vacation in my entire life and nothing better that doing it in the Mediterranean. Registration at the Port in Barcelona took longer than expected, our suggestion, the earlier the better. The ... Read more
