Verified Review
5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 24, 2014
Ship: Brilliance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: GTY
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

The ship was elegant, the food was excellent, and the staff was friendly and accommodating.  We wish it was easier to get a table for two in the main My Time dining room.  We never knew the schedule for the evening entertainment until the night before.  By then there were no reservations available for tables during prime time.  We were told that most tables were reserved before the ship ever left port.  Well, that kind of defeats the purpose of My Time dining. 

We liked the Solarium pool, which was quiet and adult-oriented, as opposed to the outdoor pool.  Although the ship was filled to capacity, we always seemed to be able to find a seat at the pool or in the buffet area.

Ship Tip

There were no intellectual type activities, such as photo or tech classes or lectures on the ports. Belly flop contests were more the style.
