"LIVE" from the Grandeur 09/29/06 9NT Western
Hello everyone....

Join me for a 9 nt Western Caribbean Cruise on the Grandeur of the Seas. We Sail tomorrow at 4PM, from Cruise Maryland... the NEW Passenger Terminal at the Port of Baltimore (Just South of the Fort McHenry Tunnel and I-95) I should be arriving by 2PM. The first post and pics should be available before we sail. (pending connectivity)

I have cruised on the Grandeur many times, however many Cruise Critics and other Marylanders have not.... So I will be providing daily photos, of the Ship, and Ports, as well as daily commentary on our Voyage. I will try to get as many pics of cabins as possible ( I have many cabin pics currently...just click below) I will also provide Public Room and Exterior Ship Photos.

Our scheduled ports will include : Miami, Key West, Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Port Canaveral. As shown in the past...we could be going anywhere on this cruise...if weather concerns warrant.

I am expecting this Cruise to be relaxing, with calm seas...I love the Grandeur of the Seas. She is a beautiful vessel... she has a great crew...Very good food, and should provide a smile on the face of every passenger.

So hang on, sit tight, have a cup of coffee.... The next 10 days, should be beautiful on the Grandeur of the Seas

Thnaks for tuning in ! !

;) ;)

Radio, could you find out if Bally and Mate (pronounced Matay) are still waiters in the dining room? If they're not there, could you ask (any of the DR staff) what ship they went to. Then I'll know whether or not I have a chance of getting them on one of my 3 upcoming cruises

Thanks Radio!
Thank you for posting live from your cruise. We will be boarding the Grandeur on Oct. 13th and look forward to your postings.

If possible would you take pictures of an aft (all the way in back) JS-especially the balcony? I understand if this is not possible but would love it if you could!

Hoping you have a wonderful cruise!

Hello everyone... I have to go into work for a half a day today. then I am off to the port. The weather report looks promising. Clear skies, and 65f.

I hope to be at the port between 1 and 2....It is only about a 15-20 min drive to the port from my house.

I am hoping to meet everyone from our M&M who wil be meeting at Sailaway. We have a RCI M&M tomorrow at 1 in the Viking Crown Lounge.

Thanks for tuning in...
