Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Brilliance of the Seas by Chris Smith Western Mediterranean April 29, 2007

We took a 14 day cruise on the Brilliance that left Barcelona April 29. We visited Villefranche (Nice), Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Venice (2 days) Dubrovnik, Naples and Civitavecchia (Rome - 2 days).

The ship is very well appointed and is easily navigated.

Food service was excellent. We ate at the specialty restaruants (Chops and Portofino). Both are not to be missed. We chose second seating because we were on tours each port day. 9PM is a bit late for dining, but otherwise OK.

We enjoyed the solarium (covered) pool area very much - we look for that accommodation on ships when we travel.

Entertainment was good, but not as good as other RCCL ships we have been on.

Overall - an excellent cruise!
