We just got a late Royal Caribbean surprise!!! Royal Caribbean has re-categorized it’s cabins fleetwide – this means big changes in cabin
No changes in the cabins themselves or cabin #’s.
For example: an Grand Suite (GS) is now an OT or a GT; a D1 Superior Balcony is now 4 different categories 1B, 2B, 3B, 4B; an inside N category is now 2 different categories 2V or 6V and no...the #’s 1,2,3, and 4 have nothing to do with the decks they are on. That would be too simple.
This has nothing to do with our sailing but could cause confusion when choosing a cabin category for 2019 on our website…so to avoid confusion at our reservation opening rush,
we are staying with the old 2017 cabin chart categories
, published prices of course and later on we’ll translate the 2017 categories over to the newly changed 2019 categories and send you an updated invoice with the conversion.
To simplify this for our cruise, we have 2 separate links to the Brilliance cabin deck chart.
1 for our past 2017 cruise...which we will be using for our initial reservations for our 2019 cruise
and 1 to the new re-categorized ship chart. Why 2??? The newer 2019 version has better overall info about the cabins themselves...inside pictures, videos, etc. So for the details look at the new one 2019...pick out your cabin # area and deck ONLY…then look at the 2017 chart to book your cabin category. The 2 links are right below our cabin prices highlighted in yellow on our prices page on on our

WE see this as strictly a bean counter move from RCCL. For Example: In the future...
Exact same category/size, deck, etc cabins near the elevator will cost more than the same exact cabin category just a few doors down. Exact same category/size/deck cabins on the rear of the ship will cost more than the exact same cabin just around the corner. Dead center ship cabins cost more than those just 4 cabins away. You could be side by side, same cabins and 1 cost more or less. Very much like the airlines have done. Aisle seat or window seat, over the wing or in the rear, 1
class isle or 1
class window. Most requested category AREA is more expensive. RCCL now has a base price for say what was listed as a D category balcony, then an upcharge for the same exact cabin in a more
and also an upcharge for 3 person capable cabins that only have 2 people listed. Will RCCL be charging for luggage next?
Again...we are not changing. We’ll keep it simple and fair.
