Fall Leaves on the Brilliance of the Seas....BRILLIANT

Sail Date: October 18, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: 8808

We had THE best weather, saw the most stunning colors, and loved our experience on board.  We enjoyed coming to Boston early and staying at the Best Western Sam Addams Inn and seeing the city.  Loved all the stops, but especially Portland and Bar Harbor in Maine.

Cabin / Stateroom
Great cabin - standard fare for a balcony, but a huge balcony because of the mid-ship location. We loved being close to everything in the center of the ship.

Boston, Massachusetts
Book an all-day excursion and go a day early to enjoy the city.
Portland, Maine
Loved the lighthouse tour!
Bar Harbor, Maine
THE BEST day of excursions - the trip to Jordan; and to be on the summit of Cadillac Mountain was amazing.
Saint John, New Brunswick
Halifax, Nova Scotia


If you are unable to get a preferred dining seating time, which we were not able to get. Book a "My Time" and then ahead of time make dinner reservations for the same time each night. We had "our table" with "our wait staff" and loved every evening's dining.
