Stretching the Grandeur???

Recommended Posts

I think I read that in the updated Grandeur more staterooms will be added, hopefully I misread this! We sailed on the Enchantment and it was awful after it was split and stretched, waaay too crowded in public areas. I know the Grandeur isn't being split and stretched, but are they cramming in more staterooms? Does anyone know exactly what the plans are for the "new, updated Grandeur" when it relocates to Baltimore? Thanks!

Yep, as you said they are cramming in more staterroms.

Will they change cabin numbers and create the chaos that happened on the Rhapsody?? When does this refurbishing take place??

They've added 18 (I think) cabins in the centre of the ship on decks 7 and 8 where the lounges/card room etc used to be.

 

The ship is in dry dock now, due out next week and the new cabin numbers won't cause a problem like they did on the Rhapsody - although they may cause some confusion to start with as deck 8's numbers go in the sequence 8036-38-37-39-41-43-40-42. ie. they've taken some odd numbers, which didn't have cabins, and slotted them into the area where they've put new cabins on what is normally an even-numbered side of the corridor.

We have one of these new cabins booked for our sailing later this year. We were in an inside cabin on Deck 8, but there was a price drop and, when they refused to honour it (as they have in the past), I complained, so they gave us an upgrade to an Oceanview in the centre of Deck 8, where the Crown & Anchor room was situated.

 

I was unable to access the new deck plans from RCI UK for some reason, so the RCI cruise specialist emailed it to me as a jpeg.

 

Looking forward to it, as it no only has a window of some sort, but also a sofa bed :)
