Default another announcement

The cruise director just announced that we all have to be back on board at midnight tonight, so I guess we'll be here at least that long.

Out of curiosity, when is the next dry dock scheduled for the Grandeur? When was its last one?

I found this drydock schedule on another post: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showt...ydock+schedule

I don't see Grandeur on it anywhere this year. Not sure about the last drydock.

Grandeur's last dry dock was the end of October start of November I think.

So can't see it going in again until late 2005 early 2006.

THis is for anyone sailing the Granduer on the 4/23 sailing. We got good news from our travel agent. She was informed that we will be sailing, but on Sunday, 4/24. As expected, we will have a reduced itinerary. When I get more details, I will post.

The only downside is that the NCL Dream and Carnival Conquest will also be in port on Sunday. The Dream is normally at the same spot (Terminal NO.2) as the Grandeur. Glad I am not the one at the N.O. port that has to work out this logitical problem.

Glad to see a Red Sox Fan in New Jersey. I met a Sox Fan on Legend of the Seas last month who was from Philly. Doubt he was a PATS fan too. We sailed the Norwegian Dawn in December and absolutely loved it. We really enjoyed all the restaurants and eating whatever time we wanted to. Can't wait to go on the Dawn again in the future. Hope you don't hit any large waves. We would definetely sail from New York again in November or December. Our next cruise is Oct 22 on Jewel of the Seas from Boston to Bermuda and the Caribbean. Already counting the days.

Exclamation im soo upset

im suppose to be leaving on the 23rd... if they shorten our itinarary i wonder if they will just cut the extra day in getting back to nola or will they cut out a port?... i hope they dont cut out a port..maybe add a port thats closer???
i mean we paid for 7 days on the ship and 3 ports, they should make up for that in some way.

what if what they fixed doesnt hold up?.. i'm going to be very nervous

I just spoke with a RCCL rep. on the RCL internet site, around noon today, updates and a link to the "progress" will be reported. they warned me that the initial info, of course, will focus on the current passengers, with more info to follow.

I think they will cut out one port....and it's likely to be Costa Maya...after all the bother....so that the ship is back in port for Saturday 30th in time for the next cruise.

weezl, our T/A said we would get some compensation for losing a day. If we lose a port, we get refunded the port charges for the that port.

Wouldn't be nervous about the repair. I've been involved with repairs to barge and industrial systems for many years. I understand the hole is relatively small, and the repair is straightforward. Based on my experience, the repairs welds will be inspected for integrity using well-proven methods at Costa Maya and then again at New Orleans prior to any sailings.

Yep they sure can. They can pretty much do anything and not compensate you for it. Their terms of their contract are highly in favour of the line and not the passenger.

I just saw pictures of the damage and the hole and it looked pretty large to me. Maybe they can patch it to get it back to NO but looks like it will need more work after that.

When a cruise is shortened, they will usually give you some sort of credit to your Seapass account. This is just a GUESS, but it will probably be a couple hundred bucks per cabin. It all depends on how much inconvience there was.

I sincerely hope that RCL will at least consider giving current passangers a break on their cruise...

My mom is a travel agent - she didn't know about this either until I called to tell her about it. She commented that it seems like RCCL wants to try to keep this on the hush hush, no doubt becuase of the rash of negative publicity that NCL had as a result of the Dawn.

Call me cynical -- but my feeling is that they don't want to give away as much as NCL gave to their passangers, so they want to keep this as quiet as possible. NCL did a lot of CYA when they had their problems. I feel like RCCL wants as few people to know about this as possible.

One has to wonder if this was an avoidable accident, and that is why RCCL is keeping their lids shut on releasing a statement...

Sorry. Call me cynical.
