A Great Time on the Repositioning Cruise

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: USA
Embarkation: Boston
Had a wonderful experience during our repositioning cruise on Brilliance of the Seas from Boston to Tampa. The crew was one of the friendliest we've encountered during cruising, Captain Stig was amazing all week long, Cruise Director Steve and Activities Manager Texas Tom kept things moving and energized.

First time with My Time dining, and on a 13 day cruise, we were nervous, but the staff was great in accommodating our needs. Only concerns were that wait staff attention during dinner seemed much thinner than on prior cruises, having to wait for drink refills, rolls, etc...they seemed to be stretched too thin compared to the regular dining seating's. A number of our fellow cruisers were not happy with the 5:30 early seating times, and many tried to get onto My Time so they could eat a little later, a few had success, but not all.

This repositioning cruise is very heavy with top tier cruisers, so all the lounges were taken up before dinner with "Top Tier Receptions", More leaving only the Pub, Schooner, and R bar for a before dinner drink.

This cruise was amazing, and we are looking hard at doing this again in the future. Less

Cabin review:

As usual, the cabin was clean and well maintained. The added room under the bed for suitcase storage was very helpful and wonderful, leaving needed room in the closet.
