Brilliance of the Seas Overview

The Brilliance of the Seas lets you see the world like never before. Nearly half of the ship is glass, which means you'll not only see your destination -- you'll feel like part of it! Glass elevators face the sea and there are hundreds of balcony staterooms. Visit exotic destinations without leaving the ship: an India-themed solarium features cascading waterfalls and towering stone elephants. A rock-climbing wall soars 200 feet over the sea. An upscale steakhouse, a romantic Italian restaurant, and a two-level grand dining room offer a wide array of cuisine. And the Adventure Ocean program will entertain the kids while you enjoy the golf simulator, sunbathing by the pool, and pampering one-self at the full-service spa.

Fabulous cruise of beautiful area! by CruisersFromTX

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Absolutely wonderful cruise, with top notch service from the crew. The only drawback is the uncomfortable mattress, which is important and needs to be addressed.

Amazing Cruise Itinerary touring the Baltic Countries by hvdiaz

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall Cruise was fantastic. Royal Caribbean could have done a better job by getting the chefs to work collaboratively with the serving team to understand customer dietary needs and preparing a simple menu in advance so we know what was being served, what we are consuming rather than being told some surprise. In some case we did not know what were the ingredients except kept hearing it is a surprise. Past cruise we had better experience with vegan food, chef knew what we needed and set a menu.

Go to the solarium for lunch (excellent). Go to the solarium late for a swim and Jacuzzi, it's very relaxing and a good way the prepare for sleep.

Lounge above the library is an undocumented, comfortable hot-spot for wifi. The solarium is also a hot spot, but watch the cushions in the solarium if you sit on them in dry clothing -- they look dry even when wet.

Loved the solarium for evening relaxation and a snack.
