We have taken many cruises before so nothing in this ship was more impressive than we knew; it was nice though that it met our expectations not being below average; too many religious advertisements

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food is OK\, there was a large variety in the buffet (good Indian food;) nothing exceptional; no lobster dinners; most of the waiters were fantastic


3 out of 5
They tried to bring in local entertainers and my favorite was a a Tenor in Cork\, Ireland. The shows were fine especially the RC dancers and band.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Never heard back from them when I question about GLBT schedule in the daily program indicating a bit of homophobic feeling;

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
A bit crowded with shops and bars and people everywhere but most ships are like that.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our stateroom was nice and comfortable in the 4th floor\, close to everything and luckily not noisy; we had excellent cleaning service

Pros: we were lucky with our stateroom\, location\, size\, care were all pretty good for the money

Cons: TV stations are very limited; lots of smoking int he casino; total disregard for LGBT passengers

Recommends Brilliance of the Seas? Yes!
