Brilliance of the Seas
Calling all backroads ramblers and culture cruisers— your ship's come in. Whether you're catching a movie poolside or enjoying Tuscan dishes at Giovanni's Table, you're in for the ultimate adventure in between shores.

SEIZE THE SEA DAY

When you're not exploring onshore, conquer some bucket list firsts on deck. Catch a movie on the poolside screen, tee up for a game of mini golf, or scale the Rock Climbing Wall. Looking to unwind or break a sweat? Indulge in some "me time" at Vitality℠ at Sea Spa and Fitness Center.

WOAH-WORTHY EATS

In between brag worthy destinations and social feed filling adventures onboard, you'll discover flavors that raise the bar. Like prime cuts of steak at Chops Grille℠ and Italian favorites at Giovanni's Table. Not to mention a Far East feast at Izumi and wines from around the world at Vintages.

SHOWTIME AT SEA

Watch and listen as outstanding singers and dancers showcase their skills in the variety revue, Center Stage. And sing along to modern stage hits in Now and Forever. This is entertainment that hits all the high notes.

Tampa
Departs at 4:00 PM
Pirates once plundered the shores of Tampa Bay, but today this swashbuckling city attracts beach seekers, outdoor enthusiasts and museum lovers alike. Its low-key beach vibe blends seamlessly with its glistening downtown atmosphere— and there’s no shortage of thrills for all ages. Explore Ybor City’s cigar-rolling history or brave rollercoasters at Busch Gardens. Kayak along the Hillsborough River past sunning alligators, and see the elusive Florida panther at the Lowry Park Zoo. Geek out at the Museum of Science & Industry’s domed IMAX Theater— or browse Florida Cracker exhibits at Tampa Bay History Center. Tampa cruises allow you to discover a treasure trove of adventures, from the beach to the bay.

CULTURE FIX

Stroll along the Tampa Riverwalk and see where it leads you. You might explore interactive exhibits at the Tampa Bay History Center, or go stand-up paddleboarding from the Sail Pavilion. Tampa Museum of Art’s collections range from ancient to modern— and the Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is home to splash fountains, a playground and skyline views.
Insider tip
The vintage, air-conditioned TECO Line Streetcar can transport you between downtown Tampa, Channelside and Ybor City, with 11 stations along a 2.7-mile line. Tickets can be purchased at the stations.

HIT THE SAND

A short 30-minute drive west of downtown lands you along the Gulf of Mexico coast, which is fringed by a string of sugary beaches. Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach both offer an upbeat seaside atmosphere, while Caladesi Island State Park and Fort DeSoto Park provide serene shoreline settings.

SEA WATCH

Enter the Florida Aquarium to encounter over 20,000 species of aquatic plants and animals. Cruise to Tampa and see river otters on the Florida Wetlands Trail and ring-tailed lemurs on the Journey to Madagascar. Then say hello to goliath grouper, stingrays, reef fishes, sea turtles and sharks in the Bays & Beaches habitat.

LOCAL CUISINE

Tampa’s food scene stems from a fusion of Cuban, Spanish, Italian and Floribbean influences. Local raw bars serve up fresh shrimp, oysters, scallops and grouper from the Gulf of Mexico. The Cuban sandwich— piled with Genoa salami— is a city signature. For a taste of authentic Florida Cracker cuisine, try sofkee porridge, pilau (rice cakes) or fried alligator tail during your next Tampa cruise.

SHOPPING

Pick up tropical apparel and Florida-inspired souvenirs at the outdoor Channelside Bay Plaza, right at the port. Head to Hyde Park Village for upscale boutique stores, and stop in local sportswear outfitter Salt Pines. Nothing beats Ybor City when it comes to quirky vintage stores and hand-rolled cigars.

From 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
You don’t need to venture outside the United States to find the perfect island getaway. Famously known as the southernmost tip of the country, Key West is closer to Havana than it is to Miami. Cruise to Key West and feel a world away from the bustle of the Magic City. Here, time seems to move more slowly than on the mainland. Locals pedal bikes past charming pastel-colored Bahamian porches. And live music spills out of the bars and restaurants that line Duval Street. From its fascinating history and beautiful natural landscape, to its diverse residents and their warm, laid-back attitude, Key West marches to the beat of its own steel drum.
