Looking forward to another Radio review. I'll be paying close attention since the Grandeur is on my radar for our yearly cruise. Radio please pay close attention for sewage smells since it seems to have been a common complaint. Bon Voyage!!!

Looking forward to your "Live" reports, maybe now all the speculation about what is ready and what is not, will cease and the facts will be reported to us by someone that always does a great job.

For months I have been trying to find decent pics of the Grandeur aft...both from the outside and from the cabin itself. Before the fire, there weren't too many. With all the emphasis on the fire...and the repairs, I can see exactly what I was looking for.

Happy sailing!

As always we can count on Radio to give us a report. Love hearing from you and hope you can also give us an answer not a rumor on what really caused the fire. Looking forward to hearing from you.

What a terrific surprise to discover an upcoming Radio Live Report aboard Grandeur. Have always enjoyed your photos and text. Even though you'll barely have time to set up your on board studio, we will all be anxiously anticipating your reports during this mini-cruise. Hope you have a great time! Cheers!
