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. Read more

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

Highlights

  • 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.

  • 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.
