Brilliance of the Seas

June 2014 - Brilliance of the Seas to Europe - Northern Europe

Not for families with teens!!

This was NOT a family cruise! There were no activities or areas for teens ages 15-18 to spend time together. The teens who had just turned 18 were not allowed to be with their 16 or 17 year old siblings in teen room and then they were even kicked out of the public dance areas where they were dancing with their parents supervising! Most of the passengers were over 60 and there was nothing for the small group of teens to do. The staff directors like Fabio were very rude to passengers and harassing to teens to the point we feared for the safety of the kids. The bathrooms smelled bad and toilets did not flush a lot of the time. The hallways smelled like sewers every time maintenance was trying to fix deck plumbing. The food was terrible and staterooms were outdated. The only staff who were friendly were the stateroom attendants and waiters. The only positive was that most of the ports were nice. The cruise directors including Erik in guest services were very rude. There also was a norovirus outbreak. We could not wait for the cruise to be over!
