Longer Season, New Itineraries For Brilliance Of The Seas From Dubai

Royal Caribbean International has announced that the 2,501-guest Brilliance of the Seas will sail an extended winter 2011/2012 season from Dubai. The ship will return to the emirate in November 2011, 2 months earlier than previously planned, and offer an increased selection of itineraries including longer cruises of up to 18-nights.


18-Night Suez Canal Cruise

On 3 November 2011, Brilliance of the Seas will depart Barcelona on her repositioning cruise that will take her across the Mediterranean to Egypt and through the Suez Canal into the Middle East. Ports of call include Alexandria, Aqaba, Safaga and Sharm el Sheikh, before arriving in Dubai where she will homeport for the season.


7-Night Dubai Cruise

There will be double the number of 7-night itineraries compared to previous seasons, with minor changes to the itinerary made by Royal Caribbean International. Bahrain has been replaced with an overnight stay in Muscat, while cruisers will enjoy an overnight stay in Dubai at the end of their cruise rather than at the beginning in previous years. Between November 2011 and mid-March 2012, the ship will sail out of Dubai and visit Abu Dhabi, Fujairah and the Omani capital Muscat, with the sequence of port calls revised to simplify visa processing.


12-Night Dubai & India Cruise

New for the season is a 12-night voyage across the Arabian Sea to visit some of India’s most fascinating ports, such as Cochin, Goa, Mumbai and New Mangalore, where Brilliance of the Seas will make the first ever call by a Royal Caribbean International ship to Pananbur. Amongst the attractions awaiting guests are the town’s beautiful beaches, the Nandaneshwara Temple and the Gurupura River.


Introduced in 2002, the 90,090-GRT Brilliance of the Seas presents a series of luxury accomodations and recreational amenities complemented by Royal Caribbean’s Gold Anchor Service for cruisers to explore the waters of the Middle East. The enhanced 2011/2012 Dubai-based season will be her third year being homeported in the emirate, following the popularity of her first 2 seasons.
