Hi Radio, We have enjoyed reading about your cruise on GOTS. We are picking up all the information that we can. Can you not board before 1:00 p.m.? If not, why do they let you in at 10:00 a.m.? What time do you disembark? What do you do with the time before you board? Overall how would you rate the ship? We have cruised on the Legend of the Seas, the Splendour of the Seas, Radiance of the Seas and are going on Navigator of the Seas next month, and have loved all of the previous.

Hope you had a wonderful cruise.

Hi Shirley.... You will be allowed to board grandeur as soon as the previous pax disembark...which could be between 1230 and 1pm. I guess they start leyting people in the terminal at 10 because many are driving and are unsure about the distance. There is a snack counter in the terminal for purchases and free coffee/water cookies for passengers while waiting. As I left the ship on Sunday at 11:15...the terminal was filled with new passengers. I loved the ship..she was as beautiful as ever(I've sailed Grandeur twice before) The best ratings go to the publics areas and lounges. The lowest ratings were the ouside areas of the ship...rust, corrosion and paint. I'm sure those will be the major areas of attention during the October drydock.

Over 100 pics uploaded so far..More to come soon. Just Click below to view my Grandeur photo page...

I love your posts! It's so nice of you to answer the questions, too.
Have fun!!!

Radio, if you can try and take a few pics in one of the midship family suites, would love to see them, I have seen the pictures of the aft ones but not the midship ones.
Also would love to hear how smooth the ship is on the open water, especially in the cabins up on deck 8 at night, dont mind a little rocking but dont want to be rolling out of bed either.
Thanks for all the online posts and pictures, they are great.

Hi Ron..I wasn't able to get any Suite pics on this trip...sorry. The water was very smooth for most of the cruise, except for Monday and Saturday when we were off the coast of the Outer banks, NC.

Hi Marie......I hope this is the painting you are referring to. It is on the upper level of the Great Gatsby Dining room....The artists' info is below as well. It was the largest painting in the Dining Room.

Radio,

In your pictures you have pictures of a coast guard rescue, was this a drill or did they have to rescue somone from the ship ??? If it was rescue what happened since the one picture shows a group with fire hoses ?

Thanks for trying to get the pics of the suites, guess I will just have to wait till Sept. to see one when I get on board.

Thanks
Ron

Hi Ron....

There was an actual emergency on Saturday while at sea about 200 miles off the coast of Newport News,VA. They wouldn't tell us exactly what it was, but we assumed it was a heart attack. The Coast Guard picked up the ailing passenger as well as a nurse . The fire team that you saw consisted of RCI employees and are deployed anytime a chopper lift is needed. The ship never stopped as the Coast Guard came and picked up the passenger. I guess the fire team was there at the ready in case of an accident. The lift process took about 45 minutes.

Hey Pam, it would be awesome if we ended up sailing together on Grandeur next year! I guess you really enjoyed Grandeur or you wouldn't be considering sailing her again! We've mostly sailed on "mega" ships and Grandeur would be a more "intimate" ship for us. I am looking forward to trying something different. I love the big ships, but thought the Grandeur to Bermuda would be a nice "romantic" rendezvous! It is awesome to be able to look at Radio's photos and get a feel for the ship! Thanks Radio!
