Dec. 12 - 2010 Last week Brilliance of the Seas was hit by rough weather of the coast of Egypt in what the line called a serious incident. According to Royal Caribbean, while approaching Alexandria, the Brilliance encountered extreme wind and sea conditions, resulting in severe ship movement.  There was damage to the ship’s interior, forcing the closing of three public rooms for the rest of the cruise, and loss of electricity in some staterooms, but no impact on operating systems or the powerplant. The ship did not call in Alexandria and instead went to the next port of call, Malta, and will conclude the cruise in Barcelona as planned
