This was a wonderful experience I would definitely do it again on a larger ship. This ship was huge but I would like a bigger better experience next time. The drinks were great. The staff wants you to have a happy experience I was very pleased with my stay and will be booking again. Thank you!

This was our first cruise on Royal Caribbean. It is a shame it started out on the negative side, with poor training and poor information from American Airlines and Royal Caribbean. From there, we ended up going down hill once we got on the ship. There were a lot of good things, but overall I will consider some of the other cruise lines before booking on Royal Caribbean or with American Airlines again

Definitely will do another Cruise with Brilliance of the Sea. We love the size of the Boat and the long time at sea. We really liked it better than the shorter cruise we had been on before. If you like slower pace and few children/teenagers, the way to go is a long cruise. There is actually room on the dance floor for older dancers who like to enjoy a dance or two. You can use the hot tubs and the pool and not get drowned by teenagers or drunk adults. The food seemed better on longer cruise and have time to really meet and make friends with lots of people.

wonderful staff. very enjoyable cruise. very well organized. the Diamond Plus and Pinnacle people need to have a larger area for their events. MANY people will not go into the casino because of the smoke.

Awesome Transatlantic Cruise by nilesfam1

Best and most relaxing cruise ever. Days at sea were relaxed and quiet with many activities available on board. Ports had a lot to offer and we had a great time in each one. Very few children on the ship and most of the passengers were 50+ so the later shows and dinner times were less crowded and easily accessible for younger passengers. Had a great time on this cruise!

Definitely book your My Time dining reservations early and ask for the same table/wait staff each night. It makes the cruise so much more memorable!

Make sure to make it to the Helicopter pad on deck 6 during sunset to take some unforgettable pictures.
