Tomorrow is the day ! The beautiful Grandeur of the Seas will set sail to

beautiful Bermuda for a 5 night cruise. Join me from the NEW

Cruise Maryland Terminal at the Port of Baltimore.

Stay tuned for "LIVE" trip Reports of all aspects of the Cruise, including

Daily Photos life on board the Grandeur, photos of Public Rooms, exteriors, dining, Hamilton, and Kings Wharf,

Daily Commentary , and answers to what you want to know

about the Grandeur of the Seas.(hopefully I will have the

answers .) The Grandeur has recently installed

Wi Fi throughout the Ship, so my Internet connection should hold up well.

(keep your fingers crossed )


I hope that all goes well....I checked the forecast for Bermuda, and they are calling for showers both days that we are there (Tues-Wed)....
We will make the best of it a nd have a Great relaxing Cruise no matter what the weather is !

I should be boarding tomorrow by 3PM. See you then

Stop by the Schooner Bar and say ``Hi'' to pianist/entertainer Jim Brookheart for the ``Candy Lady'' and ``Crazy Guest.'' Jim is a great entertainer. Spent many hours at the Schooner during our 4/29 repo cruise, Tampa to SJ.

Hi Radio.

I will be boarding the ship next Friday when you depart. I am excited to see what you experience. This will be my first cruise so I am not sure what to expect. You reports will help me get through the week. Have a great cruise and I hope the weather turns out well for you.

Hi Radio,
We'll be joining you tomorrow on the Grandeur! If I bring my laptop, will I be able to use it anywhere on the ship? Will there be a fee?
Thanks, Karen

Hi Karen, yes there will be a fee. the price starts at .50 per minute. It will be cheaper per minute if you buy a package of minutes.

You must have an Aircard or Laptop that is capable for WiFi. If not, Grandeur should be able to provide a rental while on board.

WiFI should be available in several ares on the ship. It is not available everywhere... I will provide details once on board.

I have sailed the Grandeur many times, but when I was on last July, there was no WiFi....

Going on the Grandeur in Sept, we were on her last Sept and loved her. We have followed your "live" threads before and enjoyed them very much.

We are looking forward to your cruise as much as you are since you are posting..."live". You do have a way with words. We will be interested in reading your posts about the new terminal on how soon you can arrive, luggage drop offs and any info on handicapp parking.

We go to Bermuda every year and never tire of it's beauty. You are on a great ship going to a beautfiul port. You can count on us to be "cruzin the net" and tuning in with you.

Ps. can you ask the captain to rev the engines when he gets to the bridge... it might stir some fish off the bottom.. thanks!
