Brilliance of the Seas

Just one glance at this luxurious ship, Brilliance of the Seas®, will tell you all you need to know about where her name comes from. Whether it be from one of the ocean-facing elevators or the nine-storey Centrum, a performance space constructed entirely from glass, you’re always sure to get a spectacular view onboard this ship.

About Brilliance of the Seas

Accommodating 2,112 guests at a single time, Brilliance of the Seas serves both the picturesque idylls of the Mediterranean and the laid-back exoticism of the Caribbean. There’s a range of suites and staterooms to satisfy all spatial and budgetary requirements, while the plethora of bars and restaurants onboard cater to even the fussiest of palates.

During the day, the sublime ocean views might make you want to do nothing more than relax and take it all in. But more active guests shouldn’t despair – there are a range of activities and amenities to keep you occupied throughout your stay. Fitness fanatics can stay in shape at the gym or get their game face on at one of the many sports courts, while the rock climbing wall is an ideal way to ascend to new heights and enjoy even more marvellous views. And with an array of indoor and outdoor swimming pools onboard, there are ample opportunities to cool down again post-workout.

Come nightfall, the Centrum located at the heart of this majestic ship plays host to world-class cabaret acts, from gravity-defying acrobats to West End-style theatrical extravaganzas. Meanwhile, those who like nothing better than kicking back with a good film can stock up on popcorn and head to the top deck to take in a blockbuster under a blanket of twinkling stars. Whatever kind of holiday you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it onboard Brilliance of the Seas.
