Review of Brilliance of the Seas, 12 night Panama Canal- 12/21/07-01/02/08

This was our 4th cruise on RCI for us (me-51years young, DW-48 and DS-9yo)

We arrived at Miami, flying continental airlines a day early and stayed at Embassy Suites Airport in Miami. Since they just completed a complete renovation of the property it was great. Also 2 couples from our M&M were staying there too so we met for free drinks at the nightly managers reception. A third couple showed up as a surprise. Needless to say the cruise vacation started immediately. We all got along right way...especially since most of us have been chatting for months prior to the cruise. As a special note to ES hospitality, DW and I don't really drink much, but we do like Kailua and cream. When we asked for it the bar tender told us this drink is not part of the managers reception...but the manager was standing there and she ended up going the regular bar and buying us each the drink we requested. Thank you ES.
