Brilliance of the Seas Cruises

4.3
(from 3 verified customers)

Brilliance of the Seas entered service in 2002, was refitted in 2018, and at 90,090 GT carries 2112 passengers. Brilliance of the Seas’ most striking feature is the nearly three acres of exterior glass employed in its design - including glass elevators that span 12 decks giving ocean views. From every public space you are likely to see the seascape wherever you turn your head.

The ship is family-friendly, with large facilities for children and teens. It caters for large conferences, Wi-Fi ship wide, wheelchair access, and also couples wishing to tie the knot in the wedding chapel. Though large, the ship offers a good passenger space ratio. Décor throughout is warm and attractive and you’ll need good walking shoes to become familiar with the many public spaces.

Though carrying over 2000 guests, dining, entertainment and activity centres are spread throughout the ship and elevators are fast.

  • Dining

    Dining on the Brilliance of the Seas

    For the Main Dining Room, spread over two levels, select from three dining choices before cruising: fixed seating at the same table nightly, at either early or late sitting; open-seated My Time Dining (with pre-paid gratuities) at a flexible time; and early sitting My Family Time Dining that allows children aged 3 to 11 years to leave for their Adventure Ocean kids club. Menus feature healthy, vegetarian and kosher options. Special dietary needs can be catered for by giving advanced notice. Menus change daily throughout the cruise.

    Evening dress is casual or smart casual. Expect one to three formal evenings in the Main Dining Room during your cruise. Other complimentary eating options include buffet-style Windjammers Café, a pizzeria, the Seaview Café, and 24-hour room service. Specialty dining (with a cover charge) can be booked for Chops Grille steakhouse and Portofino Italian restaurant. The Mystery Dinner Theatre, set in Portofino, combines your meal with theatre drama and intrigue. Reserve Vini d’Italia for a seasonal menu complemented by fine wines. Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream is the place to go for ice-cream and frozen drinks.

Highlights

  • Blips, bleeps, clangs and cheers. Play to win in a classic arcade atmosphere with timeless games like Pacman and table hockey, plus the latest - Guitar Hero, Fast and Furious Drift and more.

  • No matter what sailing you choose on Brilliance of the Seas, every destination you visit is a show stopper. Fortunately, the ship offers endless opportunities to scope out the scenery and appreciate the sights — whether you’re rocking out forty feet above deck on the rock-climbing wall or hanging out in one of the Solarium’s serene whirlpools.

  • Redefining the cruising experience one room at a time. The staterooms are an alluring escape from the non-stop action the cruise ships are known for. From the spectacular views to the deluxe amenities, a stay with us is like nothing at sea.

Cabins

Staterooms come in four main categories and 19 grades, with variations based on guests’ needs: Suite/Deluxe Staterooms, Balcony Staterooms, Outside Staterooms and Interior Staterooms. When selecting accommodation consider the view, the level of privacy, and location near to or far from activity areas. All staterooms come with private bathroom, vanity area, hair dryer, interactive TV and phone. Many cabins are family-friendly with up to four additional bunk beds, and interconnecting rooms. There are no single cabins, and many are wheelchair-accessible.

In-cabin service and dining is available 24-hours. Travel in style with a selection of five categories of Suites, which are especially good for families needing more space, and may include complimentary concierge service. Suites come with priority check-in, most have multiple rooms and balconies, and depending on the suite you may have whirlpool tub, baby grand piano and an entertainment area, and accommodate up to eight guests. The stateroom’s TV enables guests to request room service, to book show tickets, shore excursions, movies and specialty dining, and keep track of their onboard account. Smoking is not permitted inside any stateroom and any stateroom balcony. Cigarette, cigar, e-cigarette and pipe smoking is permitted in designated outdoor areas.)
