maiden voyage of Royal Caribbean's
"Brilliance of the Seas:" Seven days and nights crossing the Atlantic Ocean. The price was $259. plus tax.
But there were peripheral costs. It took some figuring to fly to London and get out to the coast to Harwich to embark
on the gorgeous ship-- and to get home from Boston, where we disembarked.
But oh, those seven days were heaven. The absence
of ports of call elicits deep relaxation. The horizon is the sea and sky, day after day. Soon it blends together and you are
captivated-- taken over-- by the rhythm of all that blue. Unforgettable.
