5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 03, 2015
Ship: Brilliance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 4560
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 3 years ago

So many things have been cut from cruises.  Turning down the bed, chocolate on pillow, waiters parading with baked Alaska.  And Zena, our entire party was not sitting together.  We had to arrange to get the two of our eight at our table.  We also each had to contact to get the $25 rebate we were promised from RCI.  The world is changing and this was not as enjoyable as in the past.
