It could be that they are collecting all the trouble-makers together in one area or more likely that they are making it easier for themselves to use the staff that they have more conveniently. There are times when they put unsold cabins on at a very low price and they don't want you to have paid more for your cabin than the people coming on and for you to hear about it. There are lots of reasons and you never know you might be lucky again this time. .......Neil (Just in case the first bit was a joke).

Well SKE don't worry ...we all had to learn and you've done well so far. Now try this. 1. If you type into your search engine Brilliance Of The Seas - Royal Caribbean International and look for an entry www.royalcaribbean.com. Have a look there and you will find a section marked “Deck Plans” click on that and you will be able to click on “inside stateroom” and then you will be shown a typical stateroom on Brilliance. She really is a lovely ship and probably the best designed ship currently with RCI. You will not hear any footfall or traffic past your cabin most if not all of the time. You can’t go far wrong but try to get as high up the ship in that class as you can because you will be closer to most activities and areas. ……Neil.

We had an outside on Deck 4, quite close to the Centrum and the music. We did not hear either music or other passengers in corridor. Soundproofing must be good. However, on another holiday, we did have an inside on Deck 10, at the front of the ship and only passing people were those going to their rooms and we were able to hear some noise. Hope this helps.

All lines sometimes upgade insiders who book early to outside, so they can resell the cheaper cabins: It sound good in adverts "Cruise from £999 or whatever! Enjoy your upgrades, but NEVER expect one- sometimes it don't happen. (Interstingly the cheapest and the most expensive cabisn always sell out first).

Well its getting to that time of year when Christmas is on the forefront of everyone’s mind so I thought I would write about something loosely based on travel but also a bit personal to me instead of my regular cruise blog.You see I have had my pet greyhound Marko for going on 6 years now and he is a massive part of our little family. He is a truly remarkable dog and has done and achieved more than many humans could put their name to so I’m massively proud of him. As much as I lov...
