Hi everyone, first time critic here so apologies if I miss anything out! We just returned last night from our cruise on Brilliance of the Seas, which left from Dubai on March 25 and sailed to India (Mumbai, Goa, New Mangalore, Cochin) and Muscat before returning to Dubai.
This was our first cruise on Royal Caribbean, but it definitely wont be the last. Most of our cruising has been with NCL. We initially booked with NCL because we like to be casual and Freestyle seemed to fit our needs, and then we didnt want to stray from NCL because we didnt want to be disappointed...however we then tried P&O which we liked very much, and now Royal Caribbean, which we absolutely adored.
Embarkation was super fast and super easy. The only hold up was the endless red tape and forms we had to fill out to get into India, but thats down to the Indian government rather than Royal Caribbean.
