Default Grandeur - quick review

We returned Sat from the Grandeur 4/10 sailing.
Flew into NO on Friday. Checked into the Marriot on Canal St. Booked through Priceline. Great deal, great hotel. Dinner at Mulotes, a walk through the quarter, then met Herdfan( from CC) & Mrs. for drinks.
Sat AM could see the ship from the room! Got to the pier at around 10:30. Embarkation was a breeze and we were in our room by 11:15. Explored, ate lunch and headed to the French market. Back for the muster drill. Bags had not yet been delivered. After the drill we spotted the bags in the hall so we brought them to the cabin ourselves so that we could change for dinner. Our table mates were great, and the wait staff was empressive. Teens went off in search of friends and we went to the welcome show. Good entertainment
Sunday was a sea day and Easter. Went to the church service. Very nice. Cave trubing was closer will righ Kim must initialixxe it@t t It was raining but there was lots to do on the ship. CC Meet and mingle was fun. got to meet some of our CC friends. It was a nice spread with gifts and prizes. Too bad a lot of folks didn't show. Went to the shopping talk with Nino and the zydeco dance class with Major Handy and Francis (his wife)Really fun! Captain's reception and formal night. Later we took in the adult comedy show featuring Hank McCauley. He's soooooo funny!
Monday was a nicer day. Spent a lot of time in the solarium. Both teen sons found a group to hang out with. Went to the Cajun music gigs. We're Major Handy groupies by now. He is so talented.
Tuesday was Belize. Did cave tubing with Marvin at Wet & Wild. I would highly recommend them! (see review on Ports/Belize)
Wednesday was Costa Maya. We booked the jungle beach excursion through the cruise line. It was wonderful (see review on ports/Costa Maya. The magician was pretty bad ( evening show)
Thursday was OK Cozumel = shopping. Didn't see the show, but heard it was wonderful.
Friday was a sea day. I let the one armed bandits eat my quarters and nickles, Ducked into the cave and missed the b'day celeb by a few hours!
