Brilliance of the Seas: Key West and Cozumel

Sail Date: March 26, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We had a good time on this trip and definitely want to go back to Cozumel.  But we would like to take a larger ship (less rocking would be good) with bigger or more pools (never could get a chair near the pools).  Food was good.  Service and staff were outstanding!

Cabin / Stateroom
I usually cannot wait to get home to get back to my own bed. That was not the case on this cruise. The beds were very comfortable.
Our cabin was very clean. And the gentleman that cleaned our stateroom took good care of the seasick guests in his area. He was genuinely concerned.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Lacks pool space.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Small pools and not even chairs.
The running track is blocked by chairs during the day.
Comedian and Hypnotist are hilarious! A must see!
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Tampa, Florida
If you have time, go to Whiskey Joe's to eat. Not only is good food, it is a great place to hand out for drinks. It is even family friendly.
Key West, Florida
Cozumel, Mexico
Take the jeep tour of the entire island. It was worth every penny we paid. Learned a lot and did a lot!


Get to the pool early to get a chair and don't waste your time with the farewell show.
On a positive note, try the pumpkin seed dinner rolls. They are incredible! Also, we discovered that a nice place to hand out during the day for peace and quiet is the 5th floor deck.
