Amazing ship and itinerary

Sail Date: December 21, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall, the most user friendly ship we've ever been on. . .easy to navigate, well planned. We loved the diversity of nationalities and age groups on this cruise, and they followed with a variety of ethnic foods, decorations, and music for all the different age groups. The entertainment was the best of any ship we've ever been on. . .a variety of pop, opera, Broadway, dancing, humor, singing, soloists, etc. The climbing wall and miniature golf were pleasant additions. An adult solarium didn't take away from the miriad of activities for youth.

Pros: Loved the combination of Athens and Cairo on one cruise!

Cons: Tunis, Tunisia. . .didn't feel very safe there but hear they are taking it off the agenda.

Recommends Brilliance of the Seas? Yes!

Didn't even leave the boat because of the hostility in this country. Those who did didn't have good reports. I understand they don't plan to continue this port.
