With a smidgen of trepidation and a whole lot of excitement I left Australia on my solo trip of a lifetime. Reaching Barcelona, the port of departure I boarded the Brilliance of the Seas. The welcoming crew were wonderful and extremely helpful in locating my cabin. The majority of the passengers were American, closely followed by Spanish and British with a scattering of Aussies and Kiwis, a truly great international mix - we all had a ball and got on famously.

The Brilliance of the Seas was excellent, its decor elegant, stylish and beautiful. The ship catered for all tastes in cuisine and dietary requirements, definitely 5 Stars *****. The highlight for me was a Murder Mystery Dinner. As an Agatha Christie fan it was a definite tick off my Bucket List, I have never had so much fun. I also celebrated my first Thanksgiving Dinner, a real experience shared with my new found American friends.

There is a wonderful selection of activities to keep one occupied including for the adventurous a Rock Climbing Wall, Basketball / Tennis Court and Putt Putt Golf as well as the traditional shipboard activities such as the Casino, Cinema and Theatre Shows featuring international artists and dancers. Or you could relax in a deckchair with a good book or just soak up the sun as you cruise the brilliant blue waters of the Meditteranean.

I joined in hilarious Trivia afternoons and Spanish Lessons and tried my hand at Scrapbooking. I treated myself to luxurious Spa treatments and relaxing, out of this world Aromatherapy massages at the on-board Spa.

All the crew on board the Brilliance of the Seas were wonderful, helpful, attentive and spoiled us all.

There was only one drawback and that was there are no passengers' laundry rooms on board so we were forced to use the paid on-board Laundry Services. The Laundry staff damaged and/or scorched a large proportion of the clothing I entrusted to them. I lost all confidence in the laundry staff's ability and question their experience and qualifications.

The crew were very efficient in the movement of passengers from ship to shore for both Shore excursions throughout the cruise and disembarkation at the end of the cruise.

In conclusion, apart from the Laundry services debacle, it was an incredible cruise on a truly magnificent ship. I would recommend the Brilliance of the Seas to anyone who was looking for a Dream Cruise ship experience.
