 Brilliance of the Seas

Delivered by renowned Meyer Werft shipyard in July, 2002, Brilliance of the Seas is the second unit in Royal Caribbean's Radiance-class (formerly Vantage-class). Built to Panamax standards, Brilliance of the seas offers many of the features also found on the larger Voyager-class ships, but she visits regions of the world not easily accessible for RCI's largest ships.
