  1. Hi Everyone, We’re currently aboard Brilliance and, having found these forums helpful, I thought I’d do a Semi-Live Blog as we make our way through the 12 night Baltic. It’s semi-Live as we don’t have an internet package, but I’ll try and space the days out...for dramatic effect and all that! Callum
  2. Anyone stay in Cabin 9222 on the Brilliance? Any info greatly appreciated
  3. We are planning a 5 day cruise for our 20th wedding Anniversary next year. How formal is formal night? My husband will not dress up at all. He will wear black pants and a polo shirt. Is that acceptable? Is formal night mandatory? Will we get kicked out the main restaurant if we aren't dressed up?
  4. Hi everyone! Welcome to my review of Brilliance of the Seas! This trip our itinerary is Cozumel and Grand Cayman, including 2 sea days. I am a 38 year old Emergency Room nurse from Cleveland, Ohio and I will be sailing with my 35 year old husband who works in the Film Library in the same hospital. This is our second time sailing this gorgeous ship, our first being March of 2015, where my husband proposed!! This will be our 4th cruise on Royal, having also sailed on Enchantment and Adventure. Thanks for following along!
  5. Currently cruising on Brilliance of the Sea and I have been a long time fan of RCCL. Our cabin has dust and dirt everywhere from prior cruisers. There no longer seems to be any kind of luxary to our room or the ship in general. Everywhere I look there is rust. It seems to have become a party boat as all I could hear were several passengers screaming and partying by the spa as well as our neighbors at 2am.....not to mention the heavy smoked air throughout the ship.....I convinced my friend of how amazing RCCL is and it is her 1st time cruising with them. We are both GREATLY disappointed!!!!
  6. Is there a functioning Diamond Club on the Brilliance? I have read that overcrowding has forced alternative arrangements-
  7. Hello Royal Caribbean Blog members! My wife Corin and and I will be embarking on our first cruise which happens to be a TA. Go big or go home I guess. I will be doing a daily blog with a few photos and updates starting on the 4th. Stay tuned! *Crossposted on *****.com under CruisingWithMatt
  8. Anyone been on Brilliance of the Seas lately? Is the ship still "smoky"? Did they solve this problem? We can not go on a ship that smells of smoke everywhere. This is a deal breaker for us.
  9. Hi Everyone, Any one interested to play Mah Jongg on sea days? Let me know and I will bring my set. diane
  10. What type of drinks are offered, and what times of day? Is there at least one single malt scotch :-) Similar question about hors d'oeuvres I know it's different on different classes of ship, I've found the info for newer ships but not for the Brilliance class. Thanks!
  11. I'm looking at these 2 cabins. Anyone stay in either of them since last drydock (April 2018)? Wondering about noise or any other issues that I should know about. Thanks
  12. On 5 night cruises, how many/when are formal nights? And the cafe in solarium, are there snacks on boarding day? If so, what type? Any specific tips for Brilliance?
  13. My husband and I are sailing Brilliance next April. It’s been about 4 years since we sailed with Royal and I was wondering are we able to carry on a 12 pack of Diet Cokes? We do plan to purchase the coke card also. We just like to have them readily available in our stateroom whenever we want one.
  14. Hi everyone! We've just booked an RCCL sailing after having sailed only on HAL for quite awhile. We've been on RCCL a few times, but it was many years ago and I'm sure most things have changed. I notice that our ship has a spa area which includes the thermal chairs, steam, sauna and a therapy pool as does HAL. Does RCCL offer a pass (for purchase) for access to this area for the length of the cruise? Thanks.
  15. Hi All- Going on Brilliance this weekend but just realized Game of Thrones in on Sunday. Anyone know where they may show this? It is on HBO. May just need to get the Zoom for 1 device and watch on HBO Now. Any ideas?
  16. Is this an adults only place? What is the age limit here? Do we need to pay to go there? Are kids allowed in here at any time? Is this open 24/7?
  17. Hi, This is my 1st post here so here goes. Is there a lot of cigarette smoke in the air on the Brilliance of the Seas? Considering going on a Canada-New England cruise in Oct 2020, but have allergic reaction to lots of smoke. Any help would be appreciated. 🛳️
  18. Deck Plans show Jewel Deck 7, Starboard side as unobstructed stateroom cabins. We are currently on Jewel, and views from ashore also show no basic obstruction. Brilliance deck plans show just about all the staterooms on Deck 7, Starboard side as obstructed. I want to book a stateroom on Brilliance, 7592, and wondering just what is the obstruction? Anybody been on board and has personal knowledge of any or what the obstruction is? I know on some Celebrity ships the obstruction might be the top of a lifeboat davit. Jewel and Brilliance are the same class ships, so just wondering. If the obstruction is minor, I just might go ahead and book as I like the location and larger balcony on the bump out.
  19. I am new to Royal Caribbean and looking for tips for embarkation day on Brilliance of the Seas in June. What is the best time to arrive at the ship? Are any restaurants open for free like on Princess Cruises?
  20. 11 Night Regal Princess out of Copenhagen 12 Night HAL Zuiderdam out of Copenhagen 12 Night Brilliance of the Seas out of Amsterdam I posted this on the Princess board, but thought I would post here as well. We have already been on the Brilliance sister ship Serenade of the seas. We would consider Brilliance if it is the better itinerary because we really love our cruise on the Serenade. But would definitely try a new ship if it had the better itinerary. This Baltic cruise this summer as a college graduation gift for my son. There will be our family of 5 with adult children in their early 20s. Are there some ports that are not to be missed? Which is the better itinerary the end of June?
  21. Hey all. Anyone back from Brilliance and can weigh in about the Royal App? Does it have the chat feature available? Thanks!!!!
  22. Returning to RCCL after several years cheating on them with NCL. Do they have embarkation day luggage storage like NCL does so we can stash our roll ons until the rooms open? We're going on Brilliance, if that matters. Karen
  23. Looking at booking a 4 day cruise with DH end of the year. We're looking at either Independence, Brilliance or I won't (yet) dismiss Majesty. Looking at Thurs departure so we're a bit limited. Independence is 4 night out of FLL and stops at Cozumel. We actually did this same cruise last December. We can get a balcony room for a decent price. Brilliance is 4 night out of Tampa and stops at Cozumel. We've never been on this ship (or Radiance class). The downside is that an ocean view on this cruise costs what a balcony costs on Independence. (And likewise, a balcony on this cruise costs what a Junior Suite costs on Indy). Also it leaves the week before Christmas so not sure if that impacts flights in a positive or negative way. Majesty is a 5 night cruise out of FLL and stops at Cozumel and Costa Maya. No balcony rooms so we'd either book an ocean view (which is tiny) or a Junior Suite is a bit more than we want to pay for a short (bonus) cruise. I'm hesitant on this ship since it's so small. I know it's a bit subjective, but thoughts?
  24. Anyone know what make of pods the machines take in the suites on the Brilliance and Independence so I can take my own, I drink a lot of coffee. I've tried and tried but can't find the information anywhere, thanks.
  25. I'm looking at the deck plan for Brilliance and trying to select an ideal balcony. When I look at balcony rooms (6D) on deck 7 aft, the balcony looks larger but it also juts out around there. Anyone know if the view is blocked or what that extra "outline" is? Would these be a good room? Example room is 7160. Trying to find a room that won't have the noise issue from the Centrium. When I compare the same room location but on deck 8, the balcony is smaller but without the extra border/outline. (Sorry, not sure what to call it) Or anyone know anything about 7152? It's balcony looks rounded or backward L shaped.
