Brilliance of the Seas Cruise Review
10-night Panama Canal
Joanne and James
Having been on a cruise with Royal Caribbean before, we thought our cruise holiday couldn't get any better but we were wrong. We went on the 10-night panama canal cruise and we loved every minute of it. The food was fantastic and the service second to none. The ports of call were well chose and very organized. A visit to the panama canal is a big must in life it was fascinating (although you have to get up stupidly early for the action).
We booked several tours with Royal Caribbean which all were excellent and true value for money, the tour guides on each trip were full of great information and they did not looked bore or tired of telling the same information day in day out like on some holidays we have been on. The whole aspect of cruising lets you see things you can't always cram into normal land holidays and in 2 cruise I have been able to see 2 thirds of the Caribbean.
Our state room was very comfortable and always clean and tidy. The waiters and waitresses were always very keen to help, not just with dinner, but with advice in the ports and where to go for the shopping and great deals.
The entertainment I feel was aimed at the older market but we realize that cruising is open to every age and that's what's also so fascinating, all the different walks of life under one roof. We still speak via email to the first dinner mates we met and we have already exchange a few emails with the last lot, its great!
There was only one bad thing about this holiday - we had to return home to wet, cold England. The first thing me and my partner did when we got home was to go onto the Royal Caribbean website and book the next cruise. I have never been on a cruise with any other cruise company and I feel I will never have to as I don't think you can get any better than what we have experienced with Royal Caribbean. Anybody that sails on this ship, who does the cruise we have just done and finds one thing to complain about doesn't deserve to have the opportunity to do so. It was all excellent, excellent, excellent!!!!!!!
