Brilliance of the Seas Cruise Review by mgill2005

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2017
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Junior Suite

We were recreating a cruise my wife's parents took exactly 50 years ago. They are gone but not forgotten. We sailed from Barcelona and went to many of the same ports the partents visited in 1967. The Brilliance turned out to be the perfect ship for our mission. The staff was laid back and friendly. The ship was spotless. Our stateroom attendant Roxanne was ever present to keep our ice full and watch out after DW who developed a cough about half way through. The food was above average. We took the galley tour, enjoyed the mystery dinner theater, and made friends at the diamond lounge. It was a great cruise and we toasted the parents every night. The debarkation was unbelievable. We had an early flight (1030) so we left with the first group to collect our bags. The terminal had and airport style carousel and once you collected your bags, you simply walked to the taxi stand. No passport check, forms to fill and so forth. Grab your bags and go. So cool!

Cabin Review

Junior Suite
Cabin JS 1100

Great cabin! 1100 is on the 10th deck on the port side stern. Huge deck with easy space for a table and two chairs as well as two full size loungers with plenty of walk around space. Usual Junior Suite layout. Bed was comfortable.
