We just returned from our 10 night cruise to the Caribbean on the Grandeur. What a wonderful cruise. First, we spent the night before in Baltimore prior to the cruise. Embarkation was a breeze. We drove to the port, parked the car, dropped off luggage, and literally sailed through the on-boarding process. From hotel to ship only took us about a half hour. We found lunch in the Windjammer and a table in the Solarium where we relaxed until our cabin was ready. Our luggage had already arrived so we unpacked right away. The easiest boarding ever.
We had a balcony cabin on deck seven. It was surprisingly spacious and had more storage than we needed. We met our outstanding cabin steward, Collin. He took great care of us throughout the cruise. His cheerfulness and humor, along with his competence was impressive.
We're diamond club members and went to the daily cocktail reception and was amazed at what was provided. A lovely buffet and complimentary drinks - and every day of the cruise. It was certainly a much appreciated benefit of loyalty to RC.
Larger than we expected with tons of storage and the advantage of having Collin as our steward.
We love sailing from Baltimore. We're from upstate New York and drive to Baltimore in about five and a half hours. Very convenient - no flight - nice places to stay (we use the Marriott Residence Inn at the inner harbor - about a 5 minute drive to the pier).
very nice place
We've been here many times and love Old San Juan
Have also been to St. Thomas many times and love it.
Also been here many times. Didn't do much but took advantage of the empty ship
