Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Everything was delicious and portion sizes at the dining room were great.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
There didn’t seem to be as many onboard activities until the last sea day. The rock wall was closed during our trip due to high winds. There was always available room in the pools, fitness center, and at ship movies.


4 out of 5
The first evening show I would not say was appropriate for families with kids, however, the second show of the week was phenomenal. The Brilliance of the Seas musicians, dancers, and singers were fabulous.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We received incredible service and attention from each staff member onboard.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very well kept and clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was a good size for a ship stateroom and comfortable for two. We had a great view out of our window.

Ship tip

Grab a pool chair early in the day!

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

Easy to maneuver around.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Took a bit longer because it is a tender port, but it was clean with restrooms and shops. We took an excursion to gorgeous seven mile beach.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
We took the Cobá Pyramid and cenote Swim excursion. It was a long day, but two incredible experiences.
