Amazing trip! We stayed in Barcelona for a couple of days prior to boarding the Brilliance of the Seas and enjoyed two days on the hop on and off bus tours. This was our first time cruising so had no idea what to expect. Embarkation was smooth, easy, quick and hassle free. Plenty of friendly staff on hand to help if needed.

The Ship was gorgeous, clean and extremely well presented. Our cabin appeared "small" but it had plenty of room for storage and slept our family of 4 perfectly (the bed was super comfy). The food was lovely both in the main dining room and the Windjammer Cafe. We have a coeliac daughter who was incredibly well looked after with her gluten free meals.

The service in all areas was amazing at all times! Nothing was ever a problem and all staff greeted you with a smile.

Port Reviews


Prior to boarding we enjoyed two days on the Hop On and Off Bus tours.


Gorgeous city! Toured on our own and had a wonderful day.


Again we toured on our own and and a perfect day!


Cheaper to catch a taxi from the port to the city centre than pay for the ships transfers. Another stunning city. We walked the city walls the caught the gondola to see an amazing panoramic view!
