Nice Cruise, but not good for kids in diapers

Jan 23rd, 2020

We planned our own excursion in Cozumel. Cruise food was good, but felt like Windjammer didnt have as many choices as past cruises. Would have liked some sushi on the buffet. Ship itself was nice for one of their smaller ships. Room we had was great. Was able to have my wife and four kids in one room.

Exceptional!

Our overall experience was excellent. Beautiful ship. Service was impeccable. But as I indicated before, the music in the Centrum and Theatre is WAY too loud! I had to use earplugs!!! You can have the same amount of enjoyment when the music is not so loud!

Wonderful cruise

Overall a good cruise. The cabin needs more outlets and the sheets are rough. Your comedians were excellent. You need to get rid of James Brown. It’s obvious that he doesn’t like what he’s doing.

One of the better RCCL cruises I have been on

Jan 14th, 2020

Overall this was one of our better experiences on RCCL. I am a huge Celebrity fan so I expect RCCL to hold up to their other line and they did a good job this time around.

Decent first cruise

I think drink packages should be included in the cost of the rooms, what a pain to have to buy everything separate. And just when you think you have spent all the money you need to for the trip, entertainment cost more, internet cost more, it seemed like every where you turned it was more money.

Better than expected

Jan 7th, 2020

Overall I highly recommend the Christmas cruise on the Brilliance. It was fun and a good price. The disembarkment of the ship was our only issue. It was very disorganized trying to get off the boat.

Relaxing trip

Overall this was an enjoyable experience and we do not regret the trip. Our only wish overall was that more of the experience was included in the original booking price.
