Great Family Vacation on Brilliance of the Seas

Sail Date: January 23, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

We highly recommend this cruise.  We cruised with a party of nine family members and everyone had a blast!  There was always something to do, and the weather was PERFECTION.  The meals were great (even though the Minstrel chef wasn't really playing his "A" game a couple nights), and service was excellent.  Our room attendant was helpful and informative, and the service crew in the Windjammer were friendly, attentive and unobtrusive.  Sailing with this ship and crew was a treat we'll never forget. 


We took the Cozumel excursion to Playa Mia beach and we were amazed by the variety of activies and the SERVICE.  This day included food and beverages as well as a wide variety of water activities  Our niece pronounced it "the best day EVAH!", and everyone agreed.

The ship is not as spotless as the Jewel of the Seas (Brilliance is older) but the staff keep it extremely clean and bright.

Quick to get aboard, quick to disembark. Some lines but they move very quickly.

The sandwiches and snacks at the Park Café are outstanding.
