This cruise was originally supposed to stop in Key West. This was a main reason for going on this particular cruise. This port was cancelled a couple months ago, even though this and other ships had gone there in the last few weeks. We were disappointed but had a group and could not change dates to suit the entire group. We made the most of it anyway.
We had a very nice time. There are always pros and cons to all vacations. On this one the cons were by far the disappointment we felt in the main dining room's main courses as well as the very short amount of time you have in Key West. By the time you are able to disembark you are well beyond the posted time of arrival. It only leaves you with really 3.4-4 hours for travel and fun. Overall the pros included the room cleanliness and service as well as the variety of things to do while on board. We really enjoyed the adults only Solarium pool which was quieter and more relaxed than the outdoor party pool.
This was a wonderful experience I would definitely do it again on a larger ship. This ship was huge but I would like a bigger better experience next time. The drinks were great. The staff wants you to have a happy experience I was very pleased with my stay and will be booking again. Thank you!
Definitely will do another Cruise with Brilliance of the Sea. We love the size of the Boat and the long time at sea. We really liked it better than the shorter cruise we had been on before. If you like slower pace and few children/teenagers, the way to go is a long cruise. There is actually room on the dance floor for older dancers who like to enjoy a dance or two. You can use the hot tubs and the pool and not get drowned by teenagers or drunk adults. The food seemed better on longer cruise and have time to really meet and make friends with lots of people.
