We chose this cruise because of the Ports of Call and also because there was an aft cabin available which we really enjoyed. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We only ate in the MDR for 6days out of 12 mainly due to the ... Read more

Chose this particular cruise for two reasons. One we like RC and secondly we thought it was a particularly good itinerary. Have to say initial thoughts on the Brilliance were not very good. Thought there was no "wow" factor ... Read more

We much preferred this over the mega ships as we never had to wait in line at the buffets or any of the special little food places. The line at the Guest Services was minimal at most times. The ship was very clean. Room service was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have sailed on Brilliance before, and on Navigator, and Brilliance was a much better experience for us. It's a smaller ship, but has a much more relaxed feel. It has more public seating areas around the ... Read more
