5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 07, 2015
Ship: Brilliance of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7114
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Ship very clean. On board shopping limited and extremely cramped but some fairly good deals. Cozumel has little to see but lots of little shops for souvenirs and gifts; excursion to mainland necessary if you want to see ruins. As with most cruises, everything costs extra but overall it was what I expected and enjoyable. Evening shows and entertainment worthwhile.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Good but nothing spectacular. The cruise line wants you to pay extra for better meals in their specialty dining areas.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Bingo is overpriced. Casino slots = a pit to drop your money into.

Cabin / Stateroom

Balcony view blocked below by life boats but nice to have an ocean view. Not sure if the additional price paid was worth the balcony on such a short cruise.
