I did a similar cruise at Christmas with the exception of Cyprus & found it to be an excellent itinerary. The pyramids are well worth the effort albeit a long day whether you choose a cruise tour or a DIY trip. Sorry can't help with the balcony choice but Brilliance is a great ship whichever you choose & the weather in that part of the Med is still generally shorts & T shirt in November. Regards Wilba.

Great ship, lovely cruise. I would advise giving 1026 a miss and going for 9526. 1026 is directly under the solarium and there could be a great deal of noise above you each morning as they clean and sort out those deck chairs, they are always being scraped across the floor during the day as well. Hope you get this in time. .... Neil.

Very easy to DIY if you only go to this site that I direct every one to - Try google and 'cruise ports call boards' - the first result will give you all the info under the Europe section.

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at www.CRUISE.co.uk our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that!
