Very nice cozy little ship... the food in the main dining room is very good. There is a sewer smell in the centrum on the lower deck. But I might not of notice it unless I was looking for it. Overall the ship is in decent shape and the staff are happy. I would be happy to sail on the ship again. : ). Now back to the pool bar!

We were on Enchantment last year, loved her too. The closest we got to water today, was Lake Erie, Ontario, here in Canada. We walked up to a viewing point, beach below and could only dream of Summer. We had frost this morning. Better than some Cdns. They had SNOW! :cool:

Enjoy!

Thanks for the update, I will be getting on as you leave on Friday :)

How do you like the new menus so far? What do you think of the new CD?

I'll be getting on Friday as well. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. I was thinking that the ship may be a little too small for my liking, but my favorite ship that I've been on thus far is the NCL Spirit, and they are similar sized. Hope you have great week!

We are ok. Bad fire on deck 3 and 4. Headed to Freeport. Lifeboats we lowered and opened as we stood at 3 am for over 4 hours at our muster station. Passengers were ill (passing out and vomiting). Not sure if we will continue or what.

Coast guard plane was circling us and Carnival Sensation was called to stand by. We could see it lit up in the distance. This was scary. The crew was serious. Crew was running wigh fire hoses and it took 2 hours to actually put out the fire. I heard it was in deck 3 after mooring room...all those ropes. On a happy note my toilet is flushing even better than before! We update if possible

Thank you for posting.

 

By this I believe that you are stating that they were moved into position next to the deck. This must have been a frightening experience for you and all on board.

 

Again, thank you for posting.

 

Please keep us informed.

Posted on RCI FB page : Grandeur of the Seas experienced a fire on the aft mooring deck this morning which was quickly extinguished. All guests and crew are fully accounted for. The ship is in calm seas, has full power and is making it's way to Freeport, Bahamas for evaluation. We will post more information as it is available.

Sorry to hear all this. Woke up to the news. I am certainly glad everyone is OK. Sorry for the people who got ill. I think I would be too. So scary to happen in the middle of the night.

 

We are set to be on the Grandeur on Friday, so will be monitoring the threads and RCCL web site as to updates. I hope all goes well and they are able to get things back to order soon.

 

Everyone on board, I wish you all good luck and so sorry this happened to you. Take care.

 

Gwen :)
