East Meets West: 7-Day Dubai Cruise on RCCL Brillance of the Seas!

Cruising is more than just a vacation, it’s an all-inclusive experience and recently we were able to rediscover that on our 7-Day Dubai Cruise on the Brilliance of the Seas from Royal Caribbean . To me Dubai is where East mets West in harmony!! Departing from Dubai our working/vacation began as soon as we set foot aboard the Brilliance of the Seas. My first thoughts of the ship was Marvelous! Glass everywhere, making the ship very bright and having beautiful oceanviews all round. This was a working Cruise with other Expert PLUS Graduates of the Royal Caribbean WOW University; with our Host, Royal Caribbeans National Sales Consultant Mr. Derrick Johnson. Nice guy who handled the seminars and training for the group!


We made our way through Dubai , My first impression was Dubai is as beautiful as I remembered it from my last visit. The high fancy buildings and home to some of the most majestic and luxurious Hotels and Resorts in the world! I enjoyed my stay in a Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom on RCCL Brilliance of the Seas and visited ports like, Fujaira, Muskat in Oman and Abu Dhabi the capital of Dubai! It was awesome!!

While sailing aboard the Brilliance of the Seas, we had many dining options to choose from. My favorite restaurant was the Windjammer Café; because it was buffet style dining and I could be there when I wanted and choose what ever I wanted from several exquisite choices! Am not too particular about a fixed dining schedule while on a Cruise, after all am on vacation!! So the Windjammer Cafe or the My Time Dining fits people like me perfectly!

There is no end to the onboard entertainment. From intimate lounges and late-night clubs to award-winning theaters and comedy skits, cruise entertainment has enough variety to keep anyone entertained. The Comedy show was hilarious and superb! We watched and enjoyed the comedy with the group.

It wouldn’t be a work vacation without some quality relaxation. The Brilliance of the Seas spa and fitness facilities were second to none. At the Day Spa I received the hot stone treatment and it was Rejuvinating! The tranquil poolside Solarium area was my favorite place to read and soak in the hottub! ahhh! I love the Solariums on all Royal Caribbean ships and I bet, you will too!!

While we could’ve stayed on the Brilliance of the Seas for the entire trip, which I wouldn’t mind; we took some time to explore the Ports. The Forts at Fajiarah. Some of the shore excursions offered by Royal Caribbean were Histotical & City tour of Muscat, Oman. I loved the King’s Palace and got a good bargain and excellent exchange rate for my gold at the Souk (market). Other things were expensive in Oman and that my friend can put a hole in your pocket! hahaha! I participated in the Abu Dhabi tour to the Grand Mosque and thought how beautiful and majestic the whole city was! Looking for good bargains in the Dubai and Abu Dhabi souks (markets) is always a pleasure for me! The local food, especially roasted lamb, ummm, is something I never fail to enjoy when ever I visit Dubai and you should too, if you ever find yourself there!

Dubai cruise aboard the Brilliance of the Seas is family friendly.

The service for this cruise was Excellent, my room steward was the BEST ever!

Overall, sailing Dubai aboard Brilliance of the Seas was an experience I will never forget. My most memorable moment was the class competition, our group dinner and the frienship we all shared. That does happen on a cruise you know!! I would recommend this exotic cruise to Families, Singles, Couples, just about everyone!
