  • Tampa Port Authority

    2025 Guy N Verger Blvd, Tampa, FL (map)

    27.933702 -82.436745

  • On the Royal Caribean Ship Brilliance of the Seas

    Please read and look over everything on this site.  They have a lot of information of most frequently asked questions.

    Air fare is not included that is on your own.  South West does have flights from BWI.  The port is about 10 mins from Tampa airport.  We could get taxi's.

    Valerie and I will be Cabin mates during the cruise.Teresa

    From Valerie Kirchoff

    This is a regular Royal Caribbean  cruise so all normal cruise activities will be offered, in addition to water fitness.  Other instructors will be attending as well, teaching their classes. Not sure what they are yet-  could be yoga, or line dancing, maybe tai chi.  These are some activities they've had in the past.
    All cabins reserved for this group are mid ship, so they should be close to each other. If someone wants a balcony though, they may be up a couple decks higher.  I went in Jan and was on deck 4. 
    In order to be part of the fitness group (these classes are not offered to everyone on the cruise, just the people that book with the fitness club)  They require passports, travel insurance, and participants much be age 30 or older.  Dont think that will be an issue. 
    Deposit is 300 per cabin. They are taking reservations now.  Deposit is 100% refundable if canceled before Nov 8 2016.   They call the 800 number and give them my name, Valerie Kirchoff so they are with our group.


    Hello! I have been notified that the May 1 deposit due date has been extended until June. I have also been told that at that time, the price will increase. If you are interested in joining us, please get your deposit in soon, so you can take advantage of the current price.

    Ok Valerie now has a cabin mate. There is still one more chance to go if you are interested. There was cancellation. One of ladies in our group Christine has now booked that cabin. If anyone is interested in being her cabin mate and splitting costs please let me know ASAP

    I have just been notified that my cabin mate is having knee surgery in Feb and will not be able to go on the cruise. If anyone wants to go, please let me know ASAP. I am looking for a confirmed roommate by the end of this week.
    This is a perfect opportunity for anyone who is interested, but does not have a travel partner to split the cost of the cabin.
    For those of you who are already joining us, please share with your friends and family who may be interested. :)

    Good news. Valerie informed me that a few more cabins have opened up. So if you are still interested there is still a opportunity to go. If you use Valerie K's name as our instructor for our group you will still get the same price. I think Elaine still needs a cabin mate.

    Hi Ladies! I spoke with the travel coordinator last week. Although this cruise is still almost a year out, she is recommending that anyone who has an interest call and reserve their cabin soon. There are a certain number of cabins held for this group, and they anticipate being sold out by May 1st. A deposit of $150.00 per person reserves your spot, and is fully refundable by Nov 8, should you change your mind. :)
