Nice cruise for the money. Ship was nice, food was okay, entertainment was good, staff was mostly friendly, only a few seemed to have some sort of problem working with people.

We had a great cruise. Brilliance is a nice, small ship. If you expect the same amenities as a larger ship, they you might be disappointed.

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!

Trans Atlantic crossing on the Brilliance of the Seas by montananan

This was our first cruise on Royal Caribbean. It is a shame it started out on the negative side, with poor training and poor information from American Airlines and Royal Caribbean. From there, we ended up going down hill once we got on the ship. There were a lot of good things, but overall I will consider some of the other cruise lines before booking on Royal Caribbean or with American Airlines again

First TransAtlantic by pcfdchief

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.

wonderful staff. very enjoyable cruise. very well organized. the Diamond Plus and Pinnacle people need to have a larger area for their events. MANY people will not go into the casino because of the smoke.

Awesome Transatlantic Cruise by nilesfam1

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Best and most relaxing cruise ever. Days at sea were relaxed and quiet with many activities available on board. Ports had a lot to offer and we had a great time in each one. Very few children on the ship and most of the passengers were 50+ so the later shows and dinner times were less crowded and easily accessible for younger passengers. Had a great time on this cruise!

Brillance of the sea is no more. Ship is dated. Better entertainment is needed and a diversity of food as well. The photographers only has three poses. I bought the package and all my pictures have the save three poses. My picture are three quarters by beautiful shoes were cut off. What a disappointment

Good size ship; Great ports; Fantastic Show; Wonderful experience would repeat this cruise. by BusyCruiser

Civilized clientele. Guessing 50% Europeans (mostly British), 40% Americans and Canadians. 10% from other continents. Mostly couples and young families ages 30s-60s. Some young kids but not too many for an August sailing. I would do this cruise or a similar one again.

We had a memorable experience! The staff was especially great!! Imade (our room steward) Gabriel, Igede, Glenn (our waiter staff) were absolutely fabulous! The Cruise line is lucky to have such dedicated employees who went above and beyond to make us feel so special! They are a treasure for any company to have!

Great ports, OK ship by mbakonyi

Ports were great, but the ship itself was not nearly as nice as other ships we have been on. Also, the WiFi was the worst we have ever experienced on a ship. Go for the ports and realize the ship is just the means to get to great places.

Mediterranean sea by debyrooney

 The ports chosen on this particular cruise were amazing I would highly recommend doing your own sure excursion not booking it through Royal Caribbean because we have much more success with way less money spent. The food on this trip was just OK it wasn't great . We desperately wish the ice cream machine was on 24 hours a day because every time I went to get ice cream it wasn't functioning it only on during food service hours. The disco really needed a DJ that and you have to spin music because he wasn't able to play any requests it seemed that he just had a particular  check that he had to play and was difficult to keep people on the dance floor and keeping the party having fun. They could've used many more bartenders because it took forever to get a drink. The dining staff and the room stored were absolutely amazing and the rest of the stuff is tremendously friendly. But my daughter got sick and was quarantined and they would not allow her to be quarantined in our room with the balcony and made her stay in her inside cabin several days therefore she missed seeing the sights what she could've easily seen out the window and it would've made it much more tolerable
