7088, should be very nice, Dabert. We were in 8086, an E-1, because we were unable to reserve 8088. Our stateroom, 8086 was great, with an oversize balcony, 2 chaise lounges, 2 chairs and a table.

The problem you will have on deck 7, is with those darn lifeboat covers. They are a little annoying.

Thanks for the kind remarks, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos

We keep hearing about those life boat cover. so what about it? so your pics are from room 8086 so deck 7 is just at the same level as those boat covers. is that it.

Thanks

Bob and Daphne

Yep, your cabin and our cabin was located at the end of them, right where the hump begins, and they are definitely located on Deck 7. They are still annoying, and I would imagine even more so from most of the deck7 balconies. Still a great cabin, though, WITH OVERSIZE BALCONY.

At least on 8088, the right side balcony wall extended out to the furthest point of our balcony in 8086 our balcony was shaped like a quarter of a pie.

If 7088 is the same way, you would have to lean out on the railing to see the lifeboat covers. We mostly sat on the chairs and loungers and gazed out at the water and ports. I don't really think it will be any sort of distraction from your cabin. I don't think I would want one of those stateroooms on deck 7 that were even with it, though

We are so happy you enjoyed them, Bill does a nice job with his websites. And after writing all the commentary and captions, I think that is as much of a review as we are going to do. It was a great cruise, the ports on this cruise were just incredible, balanced out by all the at sea days on this beautiful ship. You will have a wonderful time.

We stayed at the Marriott Biscayne Bay Marina and Resort, $45/a night on priceline. We bid on a hotel in June, about 10 months in advance of our March cruise, because we knew it was going to be spring break in Florida. We booked our flight (FF miles) 9 months in advance, for the same reason.

You have something great to look forward to...We have post cruise depression. We are doing a quicky 4 night on Monarch in this Fall at which time we will book Hawaii for Fall of 2005.

Sorry seabreez. I forgot about the lifeboat cover question, and I'm sorry I don't know the answer to it. Since you can't see from front of hump cabins to back of the hump cabins, I have know idea how far back (cabin #-wise) the covers go. There are a couple of lifeboats back there, but not as many. Perhaps someone else knows.

Is there any other way to access your Brilliance photos? For some reason the link is not working. We are booked in 8086 for our honeymoon on Jan 3 (Caribbean) and we are so anxious to hear about and see the cabin. Any advice/thoughts?
thanks,
Stasha & Jason

Thanks for letting us know, Stasha & Jason. The photos are on Bill's server at work, which is a private computer system that they control. (No pop-ups or spam that way)

So, they are obviously having a little problem with their server, which should be corrected by tomorrow, or the next day at the latest. The link is correct, the website is down. Thanks, Patti

I will bump this back up when it is corrected.

pbhunt, just sat down and looked at all of your picture again. They are wonderful. So excited as we will be going 3-18-05.

We are in cabin 9028 port side I think. Is this a good location?

What tour did you do in Costa Rica. From private company or the ship.

Thank you for your help
