Hi, We've been on both and of the two prefer Brilliance. The Radiance Class has a different layout to most other cruise ships and the design is innovative and pleasing. Both ships have superb staff, both serving and entertaining and the food is equal good on both as well. I think you might be better advised to look to see which itinerary you prefer because that could over-ride the choice of ship. Your age is of no consequence in choosing which ship as both will suit you very well. … Ida .

I'm with Ida, Brilliance would have the slight edge, for me, if the itinerary was the same.

Another vote for Brilliance - a most beautiful ship with lots of glass and light. Wonderful bar area at the back with great ocean views, and also she has the 2 speciality restaurants which are well worth a visit. She also has an outside seating area at the back of the buffet area. She is my favourite out of all the RCI ships in her design and layout.

Anyone for Tea?

By Jo Cunningham

MSC Cruises are taking British cruisers seriously and have announced that British passengers will be able to vote on the brand of kettle that is being placed in all cabins on board the MSC Magnifica.Having a kettle in your cabin has always been important to British cruisers. We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays.

The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
