December Family Cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Nicely decorated for Christmas. Never thought about it before we booked out of Puerto Rico but all announcements were given in English and then in Spanish and then in French. Would book out of Florida next time.

Pros: Diningroom dinners were extraordinary!

Cons: Production shows were disappointing.

Recommends Brilliance of the Seas? No.

Service and Staff
Some exceptional and some so-so. Did not find the usual 'everyone happy' on this cruise.
Cabin / Stateroom
Food and Dining
Diningroom experience excellent. Windjammer Cafe offered limited variety. Norwegian does the buffet better. Royal Caribbean does diningroom better than Norwegian.
Ship Quality
Nicely decorated for Christmas. Saw some rust that never noticed on Royal Caribbean before.
On board production shows were disappointing. Theatre seats were 2/3 empty. Poor choice of songs and unable to gather audience enthusiasm. Contracted outside entertainers were ok but have seen better on all other cruises.
