Brilliance of the Seas is an older ship and could use a refresh but overall the ship is very comfortable and the staff was warm and friendly.
I would like to see the Park Café open for lunch to give an additional option when not at sea with the dining room open. The food in the Windjammer was sometimes not as hot as I would have liked but there was always plenty of options.
The entertainment on the ship was very good with something for everyone. We especially enjoyed the back stage theater tour and meeting the singers. I suggest you check out all of the entertainment within your first few nghts so that you will know when bands and singers you enjoy and can plan you evening around them and not just wander the ship every night. We sit in the Colony Club gto read during the day and the games that they played in there, Bingo, Friendly Feud and the Murder Mystery game seemed to be enjoyed by all.
The cabin was initially set up with the beds together which made the cabin feel small, we had our cabin steward arrange the beds as twins which, we felt, gave us more room. There were quite a few drawers and shelves in the closet which we managed to fill up.
