"LIVE" from the Grandeur 09/29/06 9NT Western

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone !

 

We pulled up to the harbor in Cozumel at 9AM, and dropped anchor at 9:30AM....We should start to tender by 10AM....

 

I an surprised that the new Punta Langosta pier is complete but we and Carnival Holiday are still using tenders....Hmmm... I am not sure why...

 

Freedom of the Seas is using the TMM International Pier.

Great pictures Radio. We were on the August 18 sailing and had a wonderful time. Please say hello to Eric (aka Dale) and the staff at the pool bar for me.

Thanks for your "Live" posts Radio! I love reading about your adventures on the Grandeur. We've got the Freedom booked this year, but we'll definitely plan a Grandeur trip in the future.

Hey,

 

I have kind of an off the beaten path question - The solarium pool - is it a regular pool, or a swim against the current pool like on the Rhapsody.

 

THanks!

It's a regular salt water pool, with a "jet" in the center. We loved it there.

Hello everyone... As we boarded the tender at about 1PM..the weather took a turn for the worse...Lightning and thunder showers took over...A we arrived at the pier, it was a downpour.

 

The tender stayed at the dock, and we stayed on the tender for about 30 hopind the rain would stop....It finally did ! !

 

My folks went to get a Burrito as Palmeras, and we decide we would meet up again back on the ship. I walked around a bit, and went in a few shops...then made my way down to the last shop (The Forum Shops).....This is a very nice Mall...(small but nice).....I am currently in the Havana Blue , upstairs...taking adantage of their FREE highspeed wireless internet. I had a great Pins colada, anda very very good Cubano (Cuban Sandwich) I recommend this place...It has about 25 stores, AC, restrooms, and lots of food and drink. I will hang out in here for awhile, and head back to the ship at about 7.....

 

Tomorrow will be one of my favorite ports....Costa Maya

Radio - thx for the updates, they're great (I love virtual cruising)!!!

 

Did I understand correctly that passports won't be required (for most cruising destinations) until June 1, 2009? That would be great as I have already postponed getting ours, but still want to book a semi-last minute cruise to Mexico in Jan or Feb 2007! Please tell me it's true :p !!!

 

Wow - nice little area you're holed up in right now, will have to visit there next August.

 

Thx again!

Hey Radio great posts! We are on the Oct 13 Grandeur cruise and this is a total tease!! I can't wait to be there. You listed Sun dinner as Crown and Anchor, did that mean that was the C&A welcome back party? I am trying to plan my evening attire for the week! Thanks!

Radio: Is this Captain requesting the passengers to change time along with the island time? Or are you staying with Eastern Time Zone?

Thanks for the great pics - we are getting so excited about leaving in 9 days!
