My DH and I are sailing on the Brilliance for the first time in March 2013. I know that she will be refurbished shortly thereafter. I was wondering if past cruisers would post pics of their favorite spots on board and their favorite cabins. Just looking to see what all of you have like most about her.

I never organized my pictures on the Brilliance from our East. Med. trip in 2006. Looks like now is the time to do so.

This is the card room -- it's going away after the refurb.

The "Glass wall" as pictured in 1003 is what I most remember about the actual ship on our cruise on the Brilliance. I spent many hours in the champagne bar enjoying the passing ocean.

I really love the Glass Wall. The Sea View Cafe was my favorite on the Serenade. It's one of the reasons I wanted to cruise on the Brilliance before the refurb.

What are the places you will miss most and will welcome most from the newer ships once the refurb is completed?

Going on the Brillance this December the week before Christmas. Love the photos, especially the Christmas tree. When is Brillance going through refurb?

Love the Brilliance pictures! We have not been on this class of ship so are really looking forward to March 30! I cant wait to see all the glass everyone talks about...Is there open air dining on Brilliance behind the windjammer? Really loved that on our NCL cruises...We will be in our first hump balcony on this cruise....not sure you can ever trump the afts we have been in though! Thanks again for posting the pictures! Lauri
