If you eat at the specialty restaurants, try to go early. You can get a window seat & sometimes see a pod of dolphins swimming by the ship. On your first night, if you eat at Giovanni's at 6pm, you will get great views of the Brilliance sailing under the Sunshine Bridge (in Tampa) & the pilot boat

1. Be sure to tuck your elbows in when walking or riding down the very narrow aisles and passing others and or service equipment. 2. Bring multiple 20 foot extension cords for any beside electrical needs. Wife and I both use CPAC units for our Sleep Apnea. 3. Ask for ship map at Desk - Not in cabins

Try the Salsa, Salsa, Margarita excursion (they provide non-alcoholic beverages if you don't drink). It's a hands on excursion. It's fun and you get some great recipes, food, & drinks along the way!

cruise would not be good for a first time cruiser--book all your excursions on line before you get on board.

A typical Cruise ship. Other than the noise it is like a 100 others.

Use theater to show movies on dates at sea. More variety in room service items (changing menu) I liked having the ability to order eggs and meat for breakfast. I would like to see the chicken wings back on menu and maybe a few items that change everyday.

Do enter the drawings going on during your cruise. You never know when you will be a winner.

Be sure to attend the sessions with the Master, Captain Stig, to hear about his seagoing exploits! Also don't miss the passage under the bridge late in the evening on the way to Tallinn.

The Diamond Lounge was quiet and a wonderful place to visit with friends. Derrick and the others took care of our every need!!! Vintages was a great place to sit and visit or relax and the service was excellent

Brilliance was equal to or better than our other cruises. I can think of nothing but good memories of this trip.

My Time Dining gets crowded when the first show is finished.

Get on the ship as early as possible. It gives you a chance to explore the ship and book your dining time early. Having the same dining time allows you to plan your day and then go directly to your table without having to wait in lines.

Cable is not good on this cruise. Too far out to sea. We lost it for many, many days.

I suggest the Serenenade of the Sea, Vision of the Sea, Independence, Legnd of the Sea all far better. The Brilliance will never us again.
