This was, by far, one of the best cruises we've taken.  The entire experience, from first booking to disembarkation in Boston, was terrific.  Our agent Katia could not have been more helpful in arranging the details and providing us with excellent, usable information.  The ship - Brilliance - was everything we'd hope it would be, and then some; loved their aerial shows!.  We always prefer "our time" dining and were not disappointed with the food and the service.  The ports of call surpassed our expectations of them, although we did find the shore excursions a bit overpriced, compared to others that were available at each port.  Disembarkation in Boston was EASY!!!  Never expected it to be so quick and easy. Great cruise, highly recommend it
