Brilliance of the Seas Cruise Review to Europe - Mediterranean
Sail Date: August 23, 2011
Ship: Brilliance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryGuest services would not allow us to withdraw cash we deposited on account without restrictions. Of course, these restrictions were not discussed (written or verbal) when cash was deposited. I deposited the cash. I received a cash receipt with my name on it. Guest services actually indicated only my husband could withdraw. (Again cash receipt with MY name on it.) Some shows were good/some were lame. Food was delicious. Port shuttles overpriced. Take the time to research public transporation options and save money (particularly in Venice). Cruise line does not offer any public transportation information and actually attempted to stop us from proceeding to a public bus in one city.
