Review summary

This was a great vacation and I love Royal Caribbean and all that they have to offer and their great attention to detail and professionalism. Perfect size ship for what we wanted. Did not feel overcrowded at any time even when at sea. Lots of activities to keep people busy that chose not to be at the pool.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The ship was immaculate, the food delicious and well prepared with a wide variety...options were endless!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The Solarium on Brilliance of the Seas was a plus. A nice break from the sun if needed and quiet place to relax since it's adult only. Comfortable chairs, bar, snacks and beverages. Having all the activities from Rock Climbing to Mini Golf and Basketball just to name a few, were great too. Always options for something fun!

Top notch shows and entertainment. Having a live orchestra on stage with the dancers made you feel like you were at a Broadway show. Something different every night and all very entertaining.

Service and Staff

Clean all around and maintained. Always looked fresh and clean and you saw staff keeping it clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
For an interior cabin it was still very spacious. More than I expected. Having a loveseat in the cabin was very nice. Great closet space too.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

We got on the ship right away and after disembarking we traveled to our next destination, Clearwater.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Loved it! We really enjoyed visitng the Royal Palms Beach Resort. Great set-up and highly recommend it as a place to spend the day at the beach! Perfect size, not overcrowded, friendly staff, great food and drinks. Plenty of options for set up on the beach...wish we could've stayed longer!

Cozumel, Mexico
