Review summary

It was our first trip to the Mediterranean, and the Brilliance of the Sea made sure of that. The crew was welcoming to our needs, and made sure there was always something to do. Between the designations and the ship it was a trip of a lifetime that will be remembered.

Barcelona was an amazing city. We spent a couple nights previous to the cruise and explored the architecture and old town. We stayed near and got familiar with the port and found arriving at our ship very easy. Checking into the ship and getting on was very easy

Loved the rock climbing wall. Pools were small But never that crowded. Only 3 hot tubs but it was nice you could always be in one especially late night
