I am on this ship too. Do you think we'll actually get to stop at Cozumel, or might they re-route us due to the recent Emily damage? I have also heard about problems with Port Canaveral due to the shuttle not launching.

 

This is my first cruise- so I am wondering whether I should keep checking RCCL website for updated itinerary- or will they just let us know day by day. Do people rush to change excursions?

The President of RCI spoke with us on Enchantment and said they were very worried about Cozumel..and they even considered alternate Itineraries for several ships (including Grandeur)...But Cozumel has reported that they are fine..and they want RCI in Cozumel as soon as possible....and all Excursions would remain unchanged...

 

That sounds very promising....

Radio,

 

 

Is there a place on Grandeur to get Hot Wings? We sailed on her last year and there was not a hot wing to be found anywhere (I tried :) ).

 

This year I am getting conflicting reports. If you see any, would you let us know?

 

Thanx in advance

I have been on the Grandeur 4 times...and I have never seen wings. But I will check for you this time....It might be a new service offered.

Nice to hear from a neighbor. Hope you have a great cruise. We're sure looking forward to ours in September.

Hello everyone......We have made it onboard the beautiful Grandeur of the Seas.

 

I will limited to pics only while in port....Them I can use my Verizon Wireless connection with my laptop. There doesnt seem to be WiFi On board.... but will still post daily if the connection is valid.

 

We will be leaving the Port of Baltimore at about 5pm. The Captain has announced that we will have to go about 150 nm before we make it to open seas.

 

We also have 745 nm before we arrive in Freeport. RCI is aware of the Storm in the Bahamas, and we will find out tomorrow if we will be sailing to Freeport, or an alternate port.

 

But today is hot and sunny....and the beginning of a 9 night cruise to "somewhere". I am sure that this will be a wonderful vacation, and I am realy looking forward to some rest and relaxation....

 

Welcome Aboard !

Ok guys, after you pass under the Ches Bay bridge, look west towards Annapolis and those two people waving from Chesapeake Harbour will be my fiance and me. We see Grandeaur leaving all the time. You guys have a safe and fabulous time. We are on Mariner 8/14.
