We had a great time on Brillance of the Seas! The excursions to Cozumel and Key West were Super Fun! There is a lot to do both on land and on the beach. The entertainment on the ship was very good.  There was alot to do every night but most things ended by midnight unless you were to go to the dance club or the casino.  I was very surprised how relaxed the dress code had gotten since our cruise two years ago on Royal caribbean.  It was very casual!  Formal night had lots of cocktail dresses and quite a few gowns.  The other evenings were very relaxed.  I  experienced both Chops Grille and Giovanni's Restaurant and I loved them both.  The food was very good and the atmosphere was very nice.  Especially loved the dim lights and candles in Giovanni's. My husband an I had a large balcony room which we enjoyed having breakfast on several mornings.  Also it was very a nice size for two people with decent closet and drawer space.
