Itinerary: Western Caribbean
We just sailed on Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Sea and it was fantastic. The photos of the ship on the internet don't do it justice. The food was great and had a lot of variety. Any one traveling with children will be happy with the kid's program. My son is 4 1/2 years and couldn't wait each day to attend the camp. This ship has miniature golf, a rock climbing wall, 2 beautiful pools and a separate kid's pool with a slide. For the size of this ship and as many people that were on it we never felt crowded. The view of the sea with the elevators facing the ocean was spectacular. I fell ill (not from sea sickness) during this cruise and got wonderful medical attention. The crew was nice and helpful at all times. Since this was a short cruise the entertainment was a little limited. We were in a cabin on deck nine with a balcony which was nice to have but the cabins without a balcony were just as spacious. The room decor was very pleasing to the eye. Our son slept in the fold out sofa and there was still plenty of space. It also had a refrigerator that was stocked with snacks but beware they were very expensive. Bring your own snacks particularly if you are traveling with picky children such as my son. All in all we had a great time. I can't wait to go again. Anyone can e-mail me with specific questions.
