Brilliance of the Seas

April 2014 - Brilliance of the Seas to Transatlantic

A first timer on Royal Carribean

The decor is very poor.  Plastic plants are found in many areas. Ships lay out was poor. The food was not very good.  Many meals were sent back to the kitchen. No hand cream in the cabins. Little personal touches are missing. Buffet is closed for several hours between meal times. You can't even get a roll if you are late getting up. They are highly interested in selling you excursions and additional cruises. No local ground transport info was offered. When arriving in Harwich no ground transport info was offered. They would be happy to sell you a ride on their bus into London.

The good.... The shows were excellent. The cruise director is amazing. Clodagh O'Connor ‏aka Hello Clo,  a lovely Irish lady, was wonderful at her job.

Your cabin is cleaned twice a day.

Sapphire Princess

January 2014 - Sapphire Princess to Mexico

A great intro to cruising with Princess

You will find the trip too be short. You won't want to say good bye to the ship and her crew. The Sapphire Princess is a grand lady! Her crew wants your vacation to be perfect and they make every effort to accommodate your ever wish.  The food is excellent in the dinning room and the buffet.  Try it! I know you will love it!

Chatalaine's Tips

Harwich (London), England - Ship docks across the street from the train station. You have to change trains once to get into reach of the underground.
Cherbourg, France - 20 minute walk to shopping. Cute village like. free wifi in town.
Zeebrugge (Bruges), Belgium - No free wifi in port. Very far from anything! You need to take a bus into town. If there were free /low cost buses it was a secret.
Ensenada, Mexico - Remember to dicker over the prices with the merchants. Everything is priced high. They come down a lot!
Sapphire Princess Sapphire Princess - Go to the theatre early for the best seats. The shows are great and the best seats go fast. Don't bring shampoo and soap it's all provided!
