  1. Its pure speculation on my part, I've been following Brilliance via marinetraffic.com and the port webcams since I moved my canceled Adventure reservation to Brilliance a year ago. Today I was surprised to see her coming into St Martin unexpectedly (to me) Its been hard to figure out her routine if she has one. It too me a minute to realize she was lowering a lifeboat while still moving forward a few knots. She did come to a complete stop It seemed like the seas were calm watching from a far on the port webcam, but once this guy hit the water and was
  2. Hi all! I’m Elite on Celebrity sailing on RC for the first time. I booked a 4-night in cabin 9256. I was happy to receive a discount because of my Diamond status. Is there anything else I should know about Diamond status? Something not to be overlooked? I’m really not familiar with RC, and I did see a FAQ for newbies. I’ll eventually read through that, but for now... Do I need to start making reservations for shows? Are there upcharges on the main dining room menu? Is there a room service charge? I’m open to anything you want to share about Royal in general or th
  3. Looking at booking 5-day Brilliance of the Seas out of Tampa going to Cozumel and Grand Cayman. We're a family of four with a 7 and 11 year old. My husband is concerned the timing of this cruise would mean young party-goers and a family like ours would be totally out of place. Any thoughts?
  4. Any information on the best (quietest) JS? Although under the Windjammer, those fantail corners look appealing. All those deck 10 JS cabins seem to be under "something." Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Hi everybody, I just got home a couple of days ago from an excellent bucket list 12-day British Isles cruise aboard Brilliance: June 21 - Amsterdam June 22 - at sea June 23 - Edinburgh (Scotland) June 24 - Invergordon (Loch Ness) June 25 - at sea June 26 - Greenock (Glascow) June 27 - Dublin June 28 - Dublin June 29 - Holyhead (Wales) June 30 - at sea July 1 - St. Peter Port (Guernsey, Channel Islands) July 2 - Dover, England July 3 - Amsterdam Jetlag has been a little rough on me this time around, and I've had a super heavy work load on my return... besides sort
  6. Greetings, I'm wondering why a cabin annotating "* Stateroom has third Pullman bed available" is a little less expensive than the same cabin category without one. For example, two cabins next to each other are priced different, 8566 with * and 8568 without. I believe the cabins an balconies are the same size. Thanks, Monica
  7. Any input on the best interior cabin on the Brilliance of the Seas, or are they all basically the same, just different decks?
  8. These cabins say obstructed views from window washing materials. Does anyone know how obstructed? When I look at the deck plans, it looks like both of these balcony cabins have a balcony that looks way bigger than the other cabins. Is this only because of the window washing material or is the balcony really bigger?
  9. As I get close to 200 days till my next (fingers crossed) cruise, I've been watching Brilliance to see where she is. She spent much of Sept docked in St Martin. I never did see any signs of life on her, just an occasional port security vehicle driving by. This weekend she sailed out toward ST Kitts for a few days, but it back in port today. For a brief moment the port cam zoomed in and I can see what maybe cleaning activity on decks 9 and 10? I hope that means something good for us.
  10. I started a roll call for the July 3rd sailing on Indy and will post there, but wanted to give people a heads up to check their planner for that sailing and maybe others in that same general time frame. There's a GREAT sale on some things (and not so much on others). Full day water park passes are $46.99 as are full day Coco Beach Club passes. Helium Balloon and Zip line also the cheapest I've seen at $43.99 and $64.99 respectively. Floating beach mats are $9.99. We also got some shore excursion deals for Aruba. Again, not everything is a screamin' deal, but if you look through, you'll pr
  11. Finally decided I am not rising our 11/30 sailing (paid for in full of course) and all the uncertainty with cruises and also travel to FL is highly frowned upon at work (I'd have to use my own sick time to quarantine upon return). SO.... we are canceling, taking the Cruise with Confidence credit (not sure if I want to wait for Royal to cancel and get more or not since I do want choice of cabins, which leads into my question). Yesterday, 9256 corner aft was available. It took FOREVER for an agent to get back to me, and so, of course, the cabin is booked. Directly below it is 8168. Is it ju
  12. FYI - This cruise will give us enough points to be D+ when its over. (assuming we get to actually go on this cruise) So we have been to a few Diamond Lounges and enjoy them very much. On this next Brilliance cruise we got a great deal on a Grand Suite for my wife and I's 40th anniversary. Any thoughts on which is better to spend time in the Conceierge lounge vs the Diamond?. One set of good friends will be a suite as well, another set of friends I have to check on, and see where they are and if they are Diamond yet. Maybe move between them? Maybe go to which ever has the better servi
  13. Anyone know why these ships are in St. Maarten? Also Celebrity Edge is in Miami. Are they starting to ramp up for November cruising?
  14. I booked cabins 7561 and 7563 on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas for next year. It looks like these cabins may be over a pub or casino, but it’s hard to tell since the deck plans are not drawn to scale. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with these cabins? I don’t want noise past midnight and may need to pay to switch cabins if needed. Thanks!
  15. What are the differences between the Junior Suite and Grand Suite on Brilliance of the Seas? I know that Brilliance has no suite restaurant. Do they have a suite lounge? Diamond Lounge? If we decide to book next year it might be a 5 dayer to get our feet wet again. For 5 days there's a substantial difference in price between the two and I'm trying to see exactly where it might be. (I know, a cruise question, shocking, isn't it???😜)
  16. Well we got the dreaded cancellation email today that our Odyssey OTS cruise was cancelled. We were really looking forward to the new ship but I was more excited for the Southern Caribbean itinerary that left from Florida. So I noticed that Brilliance OTS does a Southern Caribbean from Florida in the same time frame. My question is.... What was your opinion on Brilliance? Is there enough to do for the kids? My Son will be 11 and my daughter 7. I know it won't have all the bells and whistles as the Oasis class. For reference, my wife and I have been on Liberty, Allure, Harmony and Enchan
  17. Any info or pics of Brilliance cabin 8032? Should I move down to deck 7 balcony, looks like they have more room and look directly down to the water. Sadly not much action here regarding ships, understandably.
  18. If we book Brilliance it'll probably be in a suite. However, if we leave the suite lounge, are the 4 (it is 4 isn't it?) drinks loaded onto your card like they are on Oasis-class ships? Dining room(s) also?
  19. Hi there! We are considering booking a cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas. We have taken a couple of cruises, one on Disney and one on Liberty of the Seas. I am looking at Brilliance because of the itinerary, but am concerned that there is enough to do on a smaller ship. We are a group of 13, with kids ranging from 12-18. We loved the Liberty!!!! Has anyone gone on both ships? How big of a size difference is there? Thanks, Lisa
  20. I saw a wonderful cruise for late spring from Miami to the ABC islands 2021. I currently have a cruise we will probably be cancelling in October on Celebrity. We are smaller ship people. This ship/itinerary looks appealing. However, I checked the last CDC score and it was only 92. That is not so good. 85 is a failing score. I read the violations - I don't care about rusty handles, etc., but food not kept at the right temperature is a concern for me. For those who have been on her pre-Covid, what was your experience? I am trying to decide on a Western on Celebrity Equinox or the So
  21. Morning, just got refreshment package for our Brilliance sailing. I hate too assume, just to be clear we can ordered any coffee or cappuccino with this package? And the food they serve there do you pay for that? Thank you.
  22. This would be for the beginning of January for the Western Caribbean (and like everything now, assuming it actually sails). I know Dec/Jan to expect a lot of families, babies, and young kids. That said, which do you think (yes I know you cannot predict this, but I'll still like to hear if anyone has experience with this) would have less of them overall on the ship especially around the pool area? Empress has no solarium or adult area (but few amenities for kids), Brilliance does have solarium and amenities for kids. I'm just trying to figure out which one is better for me (never been on RC). E
  23. Hello - looking at New England cruises for next year. Husband loves to sauna. I know that Empress doesn’t have saunas but can’t find current information as to whether Brilliance, Enchantment &/or Freedom have single-sex saunas. Thank you for any information you can share!
  24. Do you hear a lot of noise from the windjammer outdoor seating above on deck 10, or should we pick deck 9? I'm thinking I will hear a lot of chairs being dragged during the day on the balcony. Maybe just answered my own question...LOL
  25. What is Singapore Slings aft on Deck #6? There is no icon that labels it (food, bar, etc...)
