September 2013 - Brilliance of the Seas to Canada, New England, New York
We had just taken this cruise with family in mid June and decided to take it again to see the foliage. Well, there were no leaves changed as it had been so warm, but the weather was just glorious (8/29-9/6).
The Brilliance of the Seas is a beautiful ship and Royal Caribbean is our favorite line as they seem to have the best ports to visit. Exxcellent food and shows and service. Very smooth sailing onn this ship. We have been on 37 cruises, and plan on taking a trans Atlantic on this ship next year.
The only complaints were the cinema (on both ships) that were tiny and very uncomfortable, and no real designated library. The library was in a hallway that was always in use for the photographer in the evenings. We hunted out quiet places to read in empty lounges. We did see a movie in the regular theater and that was very comfortable and fun to watch. They have wonderful seating in the Windjammer Cafe, both inside and out and always enough seating for probably almost 750 ?guests. And the Solarium has a great jacuzzi and heated pool area with lots of seating and a new cafe. Looking forward to sailing with them again.
