An incredible experience for a Mediterranean cruise! Though the Brilliance is older and smaller than most of the ships that we sail, we found it a perfect choice for a 12 day Mediterranean cruise. The size allowed for a more intimate experience and it was nice to see fellow cruisers that we had met throughout the ship. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful across the board. Our dining staff went out of their way for us and our room steward was always attentive. The cruise director, Chloe was the best that we ever had. Her energy and humor made the cruise fun for everyone. The entertainment was different but there was a great variety that appealed to a wide variety of passengers. We really enjoyed the nightly shows and the daytime offerings that we took advantage of. We would said the Brilliance again, even if it were in the Caribbean.
