April 2015 - Brilliance of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
This was my first cruise with my family. The only other cruise was 20 years ago before the kids were born. Any expectations I had were far exceeded on this cruise.
Dining - Absolutely wonderful. The dinning room staff was exceptional and food was just so delicious.
Activities - I had my 4 daughters with me ages ranging from 9 - 20 and they all had the time of their lives. It wasn't a kid heavy cruise, so their small groups got to bond better, I think. There was never a lack of activities for the kids and they were always looking forward to going back, which I always see as a good thing. The shows were decent and I hit the casino a couple of times and won $200, so bonus!
It's a smaller ship so you often run into the same people each day at the different activities, so we made a few "ship friends."
Rooms - The have beds, but who wants to spend time in their room on a cruise when there's drink packages to enjoy :)
I'm planning my next cruise now as I'm hooked and can't wait to go again
