5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 09, 2015
Ship: Brilliance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8666
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Service at the bars and main dining restaurant were extremely slow possibly due to the large number of Spring breakers. We were not impressed with the food compared to other cruise lines. I'm not sure how Royal Caribbean received the #1 cruise rating.  Our vote is for Carnival!

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was fine. Smaller than other balcony staterooms on other cruise ships. Extended balcony. Say view is obstructed but it's really not....it's actually more private with only one person on the left side of you.

We went to St. Pete Beach for 2 days after the cruise which is a great town and has beautiful beaches.

Went to 7 mile beach which is beautiful. I would avoid the public beach and pay the $5 pp charge for the Rose Hall Resort in hindsight. It was very crowded but could be due to the 6 cruise ships in port.

We did the Playa Mia Deluxe and with the Orbitz special was just about 1/2 price.
