Hiya. This style of ship, the Radiance Class, has a different lay out to most other cruise ships and you should find it a joy as do most others I know who have travelled on it. The Activities Staff are great and will keep you wanting to go back for more and the food is better that other Royal Caribbean ships, in my opinion, but not quite as good as Princess food. I would suggest you read the item about this ship this class of ship in the Berlitz guide on this site which gives a very unbiased view of what you can expect. I don't know which ports of call you have but I am going to suggest that you visit a site that contains both cruise and critic in it's name, enrol and the look at your particular cruise to get an idea of what many of your fellow passengers believe they will find worth doing and maybe join in with the "mix and mingle". Good on ya mate ....Nei.

We didn't cruise on her, but had a tour of the ship, and then lunch on board 'Serenade of the Seas', which is Brilliance's sister ship. The decor is just about drop-dead gorgeous on Serenade -and should be, on Brilliance,too. Yes, do consult the Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising for further details and ratings. Can't see that you'd be disappointed(although Wife reckoned the food was better on OV2....mind you we only had one lunch on Serenade, but She'd know quick enough!!) Came home to check the relative food ratings in the Berlitz Guide, and do you know She's right? -Women.

The latest craze to sweep the airline industry is Emotional Support animals. Have you been on a plane yet with any weird and wonderful creatures.A woman tried (without success) to bring a peacock onto a United flight recently, reportedly claiming that it was an emotional support animal, which would allow the animal to fly for free. Quite Rightly United refused her request.This is becoming so common that airlines have had to introduce rules for which animals can and cannot be taken on-board. ...

Pre Launch 2019/2020

 Can you believe it’s that time again? Some haven’t even thought about Summer 2018 let alone Summer 2019 and the cruise lines bring out the itineraries and prices for as late as Winter 2020. As I type 2020 it doesn’t seem five minutes ago we were celebrating the Millennium and scarely that now seems like a distant memory. Where others like and are able to travel on a whim there are families and clients that have different requirements that need and like to book early. E...
