Verified Review
12 Night Eastern Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 22, 2011
Ship: Brilliance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Passengers cutting in line, wearing jeans and t-shirts on formal nights, loud and obnoxious. Passengers SHOCKED that they should tip at the end of a cruise. Lesson learned for me,,, RCL have a good product and great staff but their cheap fares attract "cheap" people.

Food and Dining

Food quality was excellent and good choices. The specialty restaurants offered great options but the staff was not knowledgeable about the preparation
