Sold out - This deal was published August 02, 2013 and sold out August 16, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
Set sail on a weeklong Caribbean cruise alongside highly acclaimed chefs, award-winning wineries and platinum-selling recording artists for an unforgettable experience at sea. Nab this exclusive Travelzoo deal from Flying Dutchmen Travel for $499.50 per person ($999 per cabin, based on double occupancy), regularly $1998.

Why we love it

  • Wine enthusiasts can enjoy in-depth educational seminars, plus every cabin receives one bottle of wine from each of the seven wineries. If purchased separately on the ship, this package, including gratuity, would cost more than $500.
  • Music fans catch up-close-and-personal artist sessions along with nightly performances in more intimate venues. And foodies will get to sample from the many dining options available onboard, including five new dining venues. Chef and author, John Ash, one of the creators of California Wine Country cuisine, will present his seminar "Marriage of Food and Wine."
  • Discounted rates are also available on upgraded cabin types (all based on double occupancy):
  • - $799.50 per person (voucher listed as $1599 per cabin)  ... Oceanview cabin (reg. $2598)
  • - $1099.50 per person (voucher listed as $2199 per cabin) ...  Deluxe balcony cabin  (reg. $3598)
  • - $1199.50 per person (voucher listed as $2399 per cabin) ... Superior balcony cabin (reg. $4198)
  • A limited number of cabins offer discounted rates of $199 per additional person for triple or quad occupancy (reg. $350-$550), to be paid directly to Flying Dutchmen Travel at time of voucher redemption.
  • Note: Taxes and mandatory fees of $199 per person are not included.
  • About the ship: Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas recently completed a $30 million revitalization. Additions include five new dining concepts, three new bars, flat-screen TVs in staterooms, poolside movies and upgraded onboard entertainment. Royal Caribbean was named one of Travel + Leisure's Top 10 large-ship cruise lines last year.

The agents were very efficient and personable, when booking my balcony stateroom for our 3 night cruise.

A pleasure from beginning to end....all went smoothly!

They finally agreed to refund my money, which I was originally told was impossible.

About a week after we paid for the cruise, and 3 days before we were scheduled to set sail, a rep from the Flying Dutchman called to ask for my confirmation PIN number. I gave it to her and then she nonchalantly asked for my credit card number. When I explained I had already paid for the cruise, she told me there was an addition $360 I needed to pay for taxes and gratuities---apparently it was hidden in the fine print. Needless to say, we cancelled our cruise and won't be vacationing this weekend. The cancellation process also required 4 phone calls and one hour of my time--very frustrating.

The agents personality and kindness in assisting me with details.

I haven't started the cruise but hoping the end result is just as wonderful as the initial start.

The guy on phone was so nice!!

Can't wait till the trip! My parents went on it last year and had a nice trip. However I'm going to have a great time because as they said it will be more my type of people and music!!!
