We are also sailing on the 9/15 New England and Canada cruise. All the news we are hearing about the Brilliance is very encouraging and we are looking forward to our cruise with a great deal of anticipation. We took a short four day cruise on the Radiance of the Seas out of Seattle on June 20 and thought it was one of the most beautiful ships we had ever sailed on. We are also interested in the ports of call and looking forward to the fall foliage. This should really be a great cruise.
