February 2016 - Brilliance of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
Overall it was a great experience. It started with outstanding connections on Southwest from Nashville to Tampa airport where we were impressed with the spaciousness of terminal C. It was an easy Über ride from our hotel to Cruise Terminal 3 where boarding was the easiest we have experienced. Brilliance is a Radiance class and is a nice size ship. Our biggest negative was the pervasive smoke smell coming from the Casino on deck 6. It was so bad that it was noticeable on several decks in the open Centrum. Debarkation at cruise end was even better than getting onboard. In little more than an hour we got off the ship, cleared customs, got a cab to TPA, cleared security, and were back at th C terminal waiting for our flight back to Nashville.
