  1. We just sailed in one on the Adventure. You just need to remember to close your drapes when dressing. There were a few times that it was noisy but not too much of a problem.
  2. We did the Anthem in November and enjoyed the ship so much we are doing the TA on her in April.
  3. Just got off the Adventure after 21 days. Service was better in some areas than others. This may be our last cruise to Canada/New England on this ship as it was too cold to use the pool or even to sit in the solarium on some days. We feel this ship would be better suited for warm weather climates. We knew getting on the ship that they did not have covered pools but we wanted to do this itinerary.
  4. Yes the garage has an elevator. The garage is a great place to park for a short cruise but if you are doing a longer cruise it maybe cheaper to stay at an hotel with the park & cruise. It is $22.00 a night to park in the garage.
  5. We have stayed at the Ramada Inn on Frontage Rd and used their shuttle to the port. The room was nice but not much around the hotel. We have also stayed at the Crown Plaza. That was also a nice place. They are not a 5 star hotel but for one night and parking for the cruise they are okay.
  6. Grandeur has one of the friendliest crew that we sailed with. We sail out of Baltimore at least once a year if not more.
  7. Let the special needs dept know and I would also visit the Maite 'd when you get on the ship and let him know. They will give you the menu the night before and pick what you want off the menu. They seem to be very good at doing special diets.
  8. We did a 10 night on Celebrity Summit in June that went to New England and Bermuda. We enjoyed this cruise and it is sad they do not do it very often.
  9. Why do you recommend not using a travel agent to purchase travel insurance? There are several vendors that only sell their insurance plans via travel agents.
  10. We had to go to the naughty room because they thought our bottle of mouthwash was alcohol. We never had any notification from them and had to ask our cabin steward where are luggage was as we had never been summoned to this room.
  11. Great pictures. Can not wait until I get on QM2 next year.
  12. The roof on the Grandeur has been open many times in the solarium. It really makes it nice in there when in the Caribbean.
  13. It would be so much easier with a passport.
  14. Baltimore is our home port. We love to sail down the bay as you go past Fort McHenry where the Star Spangle Banner was written by Francis Scott Key, sailing under the bridges that you do not think the ship will fit under. The crew on the Grandeur is one of the friendliest crews we have sailed with. When we board that ship it is like coming home as many of the crew will remember you. You would enjoy that cruise. Fly in to Baltimore early as there is plenty to see in this area.
