First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My husband and I have sailed on Norwegian, Holland, Princess and (primarily)Carnival; this was our first experience with Royal Caribbean. We always end up having a wonderful time on our vacations, no matter what mishaps occur along the way -- we always try to go with the flow. This vacation was no different; we had a great time. However, to be subjective in this review, I will present the things ...

This was our 9th cruise with 5 different cruise lines (Carnival, Celebrity, NCL and Holland America). We had been on the Radiance of the Seas and loved it so we tried the Brilliance to visit a couple of different islands (Tortola and Guadeloupe). The embarkation in San Juan was fast and efficient (unlike the disembarkation -- took 2 hours to get through the terminal and customs for some reason ...

This was our second cruise to the Southern Caribbean and we really enjoyed this itinerary. Port - San Juan, Puerto Rico. This was our second cruise out of this port and we got on the boat quickly with no problems. We did not venture out into San Juan. St. Thomas - we visited with friends here, but have been here before. Megan's Bay is always a good choice on this island. If you enjoy ...

This is our 10th cruise, most of them on RCCL and we have always enjoyed our trips. This was no exception, although it is probably past time for the Brilliance to see dry dock (which is where she is going shortly). We had a JS on deck 10 and that will be the last time we book any cabin below (or above) the windjammer (or any other venue) I know better, but it was the last aft cabin available, ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We just returned from a seven night Southern Caribbean cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas departing from Puerto Rico. This was the second leg on the schedule after cruising the first leg in 2011 on the Serenade. We missed a year as our preferred cabin 9076 was not available in 2012. We love this cabin as the balcony is a large wedged shape allowing a full frontal view of the ship. There are two ...

Exciting new experience for me. Read on-line reviews to glean what it would be like, what to expect and what to pack for a Southern Caribbean Cruise. Talked extensively to my brother who has several cruise experiences and my travel agent. Went to the doctor and received a Hepatitis shot and booster as well as a prescription. for possible stomach ailments as a preventative. Didn't need the meds. ...

Royal Caribbean Dream Cruise turns into Nightmare!

We have cruised with Royal Caribbean at least 10 times in the past and never in my wildest nightmares did I imagine that I would see the side of Royal Caribbean that I saw on this recent trip. I'm sure that over the past 15 years my family has spent well over six figures on this cruise line alone; we achieved the revered status of "Diamond" members. RCI can check this in their records. Yet none ...

We have cruised 13 other times, first time with Royal Caribbean. Expected it to be great... it was just good. The ship's public areas were beautiful and kept clean. Our stateroom was roomy ( for a stateroom ,) however during the course of the week, our toilet had to be fixed 3 times. The food in the Windjammer and Minstrel dining room was good, but not exceptional. Our waiter, Turgay, was one of ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We enjoyed this cruise, but we wouldn't rave about it. Embarkation: very smooth. We arrived around 1:30 so no crowds rushing on. We were allowed to purchase 2 bottles of wine and bottled water to carry on at the liquor store right at the port - nice touch! Room: room was fine, steward was good. You do need to request ice and robes if you want them. Entertainment : some of the music was ...

Flew in 2 days prior, got a taxi to hotel Milano, explored San Juan. Loved the hotel and location. We arrived at the port few minutes before 11, the embarkation started at exactly 11 am. Even though there was a long line, we were on the ship in no more than 20 minutes. Brilliance of the Seas -- the best words to describe it as airy centrum with weird floor plan. Anywhere you want to go, you ...
