So, we just got back from our cruise with a preschooler and an infant, and thought I'd pass along some pros/cons/tips for the Brilliance of the Seas, 12 Night British Isles Cruise. I wish I knew then what I knew now, so hopefully this helps anyone interested.

Booking

I chose to book with AAA and there really wasn’t anything good about that experience. I would definitely go straight to Royal Caribbean based upon my experience. In short, I ended up having to do A LOT personally to correct my travel agent’s mistakes, in addition to paying more for my trip, along with poorer service than just going direct to RC. Here are some of my lessons learned:

Port Reviews

Amsterdam

N/A Didn't have time for anything.

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

We did this one on our own because the little town had a lot to offer. Glad we decided to just walk around.

Cobh (Cork)

Jameson Distillery was another must see for me. If you enjoy whiskey, you have to go.
