April 2014 - 14 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Tampa To Harwich) Cruise on Brilliance of the Seas
We really enjoyed Brilliance of the Seas. She was a smaller ship than Liberty of the Seas that we took last year to Spain, however, we did not miss any of Liberty's features (maybe the flowrider, but that's all). Entertainment was first rate, and we enjoyed all the food at both the dining room and Windjammer buffet. The ship's captain was excellent and went 150 nautical miles out of his way to avoid a storm that would have caused more turbulence. The customer's comfort always came first. We enjoyed the lectures on board the ship by Professor of Humanities Emeritus, Glen Dolberg, and attended every one he gave. We played miniature golf, shuffle board, pool, and ping pong. We enjoyed taking daily photography classes and using the up to date exercise equipment in the ship's large gym in the front of the ship. The view looking out at the ocean while exercising was great. I occasionally spotted flying fish as I gazed out our balcony window. I can't wait for our next cruise on Royal Caribbean. I want to become a Diamond!!
