The Tampa Port Authority will be celebrating the inaugural call of Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas in Tampa, where the cruise ship will home port on a seasonal basis, at Cruise Terminal 3. 

Port Authority officials will present a plaque to the ship captain in a brief ceremony on board at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, November 16. 

Media are invited to attend and show support for the newest vessel to home port in Tampa—and the special photo opportunity as the ship departs, with tug boat water display.
