Changed Itinerary

Review for Brilliance of the Seas to Bahamas

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose a cruise to Cozumel/Key West and shortly after booking the itinerary was changed. We ended up going to Key west/Nassau/Coco Cay. We did not want to go to Nassau as we had been there so many times before. The change was made months ago, and had nothing to do with recent virus concerns. We tried to get them to let us change to another cruise or to give us an onboard credit but our requests ...

This was our 5th cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas and we were very disappointed. The MDR experience was terrible. The quality of the food was not good and serving roasted turkey any night is just plain cheap food and on our 5 night cruise it was offered twice. The menu choices have decreased and the items are mostly just plain cheap food. What everyone has always looked forward to was LOBSTER ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

With this being my first cruise and nothing to compare it to, my review will be completely unbiased. We had a hull balcony room on deck 8, front of ship. You can feel alot here, book mid ship if you can. Our room was a good size, I felt, and the beds and pillows were comfortable. The food was average to less than average. We did not eat at any specialty restaurants. The Vanietian at the ...

Just got back from a 5 day cruise. I have to say I will never go with this cruise line again. The food was absolutely horrible and service was beyond bad. We had a "penthouse" if you want to call it this that was to have a butler. When we got to our room we noticed we needed converters for our phones and computers. No where on the site does it say we needed to bring converters. There was 1 ...

Quick getaway

We were looking for a relaxing getaway but couldn’t take a whole week off work so this was a good compromise. The check in was great. The agent was friendly and efficient. We bought the beer and wine package. I think it’s a decent deal if you plan to have a few beers during each day and a couple glasses of wine in the evening. I suggest you buy drink packages before getting on. We bought on board ...

This was our third cruise on The Pearl and again the ship and crew hit a home run. Even though this particular cruise was a half charter we didn't run into that group very often. The exception was in the hot tubs where the charter members and spring breakers took over all of the hot tubs putting sometimes as many as 18 people in one at a time. However, to some extent this can be expected with ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

I spent 4 days on the Norwegian Pearl with a group of 11 other college students. We chose this cruise for its price, and because it would allow those in our group who were under 21 to cruise without their parents (we would have chosen Carnival instead had they allowed it, I think). But this ended up being a really nice choice and despite some hurdles we all had a great time. The purchase and ...

Unmemorable, Not recommended

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Very unmemorable cruise event. Overcrowded pool and hot tubs. We didn't;t get in pool or hot tubs as seemed at risk for germs with side by side throngs of people really-really drinking. Ship decor-tired; food in restaurants was average but low quality in buffet dining room as was always cold (if supposed to be warm); desserts and breakfast rolls 100% pre-packeaged, dried-out, cardboard-like and ...

On March 6, 2019, my husband, Bill and I cruised on the NCL Pearl out of Tampa, FL. Joining us on the cruise was my brother-in-law and his new wife. This was to have been a time for the four of us to relax and to enjoy each other’s company, eat good food and enjoy good entertainment. We were excited to get away! Unfortunately this turned out to be the worst vacation experience of our lives. ...

Disappointed that we didn’t receive any of our Platinum latitudes benefits except priority embarkation and dis embarkation. Would have been nice to get water bottles. The wine is unnecessary. Difficult to get drinks. Not enough waiters. Long lines at the bars. Confusion on the part of NCL stafff as to what benefits we would get on a 4 days cruise. Cabin small but we expected that of an inside ...
