Best Royal Caribbean Itinerary!

Sail Date: May 01, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

After already taking 26 cruises both my husband and I agree that this has to be one of the very best itineraries out there. The ship is beautiful, the service and entertainment great, and the ports of call so intriguing you will be on sensory overload! We can hardly wait to take this cruise again!

Pros: The wonderful ports of call included in this itinerary.

Cons: So much to see, so little time. . .I was exhausted after three straight days of 10-hour shore excursions. . .but it was absolutely worth it.

Recommends Brilliance of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Make a point of dining at Chops Grille during your cruise. While there is a $20/pp charge to eat at this onboard restaurant, the food and service is terrific and well worth the added cost!
Excellent gym with a variety of spin and aerobics classes plus yoga and pilates, running track, golf simulator, and miniture golf course. Great spa services! Wide variety of activities to appeal to both young and old. Remember you're on a cruise so you can choose to do as much or as little as you want; just remember to have fun!
Service and Staff
Friendly and efficient staff.
Ship Quality
Comfortable cabins, beautifully appointed public rooms, great spa and exercise areas.
Cabin / Stateroom
Try to reserve a balcony cabin if possible. While it's a bit further to walk from the elevators to a balcony cabin at the stern of the ship, the balconies located there are larger and the views wider. There is nothing better than enjoying breakfast while watching a beautiful sunrise or having pre-dinner cocktails at sunset on your veranda when sailing the Med/Greek Islands.
