Ship Quality

Ship shows age. Bathrooms smelled. Not enough public restroom. Ship seem to be falling apart but was kept very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was great! No complaints. Clean and comfortable.

Ship tip

If you are sensitive to motion, don’t sail on Brilliance. Being a smaller ship, you feel every wave that hit. My sister got sea sick last couple days of the cruise.
