Hello, can someone tell me which side is port side on the Brilliance. My guess is the side with the glass elevator looking out to the sea,but I'm not sure. Thank you.

I was on the Brilliance in May and can speak quite authoritatively that the port side is on the left

Port = left
Starboard = right

If you're directionally challenged RCI does another cool thing with all the signs on thier ships. The room # signs are the ones you see most often, right off the elevator in either direction. They are all curved like the hull of the ship. The curved side of the signs faces the bow (front of the ship), the flat side faces the stern (rear of the ship). Now when you get onboard and can't see the water from the cabin decks, you can still know your way around.

Cheers, Neil

Port = left (each have 4 letters)
Starboard = right

This is also the way I remember!

The carpeting in the hallways on Princess ships has a stylized wave pattern at the edges; the waves break toward the bow; so you always know which way is forward and which is aft.

I'm curious Neil, how does seeing the water orient you to aft and stern? It all looks wet to me.

Yup, that would only work while you are moving.
