SO SO DISAPPOINTED - Brilliance of the Seas - low-cost rip-off cruise.

If you want to pay a lot for a low-cost rip-off cruise in a dated ship and very few activities - this is the ship for you. Six 1 liter bottles of water for 39 USD?? come on. We were on a family vacation (4 ...

I chose this cruise because I am a former employee of NCL. Having worked at sea on the SS Norway in the early 80's I have always had an allegiance to NCL. It was awful the ship was dirty. The embarkation was ...
