Default Brilliance of the Seas

Can anyone give me information on the Brilliance of the Seas? I have never sailed RCCL but am planning on taking my sister on this ship on the European itenerary next year for her high school graduation gift. Any/all feedback is appreciated. I'm 25 and would be capable of having a good time anywhere, but is it a good ship for an 18 year old? Thanks!

Brilliance of the Seas is my all-time favorite ship. She is beautiful! I think your sister will have a great time. RCCL is a great line for your ages. You have the rock climbing wall, pool tables, miniature golf (to name a few of the activities). What a great graduation gift!

Any of the "Radiance" class ships really suit the needs of so many different types of people. Don't overlook the sisters when searching the boards for info (Radiance/Serenade & Jewel). They carry 2,000 + passengers yet it doesn't feel crowded. And as mentioned, lots to do (or not) and they are classy ships. My vote is you will have a fantastic time. Any specific questions, feel free to e-mail, Robbie

Hi cc,

I can only agree with Admiral Scanlon´s words above.
BR is also one of my favorites since her inauguration.
So have a nice sailing in the Med next summer.

Hi

Firstly Brilliance is gorgeous!

Re the theme nights we sailed on her in 04 and they had a Western night as I recall. On Navigator in the Med this May there was a Caribbean night...so potentially could be either. Sorry cant be more specific but can only go on what they did when we sailed the med. Hope it helps some....
