I have nothing but praise for this Cruise, the Best. Brilliance of the Seas was a great Ship, very, very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Our cabin was very spacious indeed, with a great ocean view. We especially liked the sideways on elevators, which faced the sea, and were sea views from Deck 4 to Deck 12. The highlight of our cruise was the superb Dining Room service and, of course the food. Nothing was too much trouble for our Waiter. Also worthy of mention was the buffet style restaurant, the Windjammer, very wide choice of food, well prepared.

The evening shows were also excellent, and varied.

The tours were great, very good value, we saw the Pyramids, had a mini cruise on the Nile, visited Cyprus, Greece, Sicily, Malta, and Rhodes. These excursions were wonderful, and made the trip really over the top. Embarkation at Barcelona .was so easy, 20 minutes, and on board. The Florida Ports should take note of this. Disembarkation was even easier.

Cabin Review

The Oceanview stateroom exceeded our expectations by a mile. Very spacious and well equipped, layout was very good, room service was also excellent. Very quiet, yet close to all we needed.
