Grandeur of the Seas

September 2015 - Grandeur of the Seas to Canada, New England, New York

Great Cruise to New England

This is the second time I have been on this cruise.  Although going to New England in mid September the leave have not yet turned.  The weather was beautiful and the calmest seas ever!  Unlike going to the Caribbean, this cruise is relaxing and the ports are beautiful and have a warm, inviting feeling.  Going in the fall, there are only a few children and the passengers are older.  We had a great time meeting new people and the pool deck was not over crowded (although the weather was warm and great for last minute tan).

Vision of the Seas

February 2015 - Vision of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Great Mid Winter Cruise

I don't know if it was the cruise ship or just getting away from the cold.  We had a wonderful time on the Vision of the Seas.  The staff was very friendly and helpful.  The food was fabulous and the weather was great.  The captain joined in on many activities, which I have never seen before.  He was very friendly and interacted well with the passengers.  He sang to us, played volleyball, walked in the Make a Wish walk and was quite visible throughout the cruise.  Our Waiter and Assistant Waiter were great and very attentive.  I know other areas of the dining room did not receive such good service.  Some complained the ship was older but I thought it was well maintained and clean.  The staff was always cleaning, painting or doing something to keep the ship in good shape.   We met many friendly passengers and crew members since it was only my husband and myself we did not know anyone on the ship but we all felt like family by the end of the cruise.

eshowman's Tips

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - The day was windy and rainy. Some people got off the ship but wasn't a great day to be on the beach. The waves were also very high so we stayed on the ship.
Grandeur of the Seas Grandeur of the Seas - Cruises out of Baltimore, MD. Smaller ship so not so many people but still have many things to do. Getting to the port is very easy and convenient. Larger ships can not be brought in due to going under several bridges out of Baltimore and having to cross over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
Nassau, Bahamas - Only 68 degrees and windy that day but still a nice place to visit.
Majesty of the Seas Majesty of the Seas - This is a much older ship and in need of repair. Many toilets the area to flush was falling out of the wall. Many areas where there was metal was showing rust and age. The food was not as good as on other Royal Caribbean ships we've been on. It was cold and not very tasty.
Cozumel, Mexico - Need to take taxi to shopping area but lots to see and can share the taxi cost.
Belize City, Belize - Just took taxi who gave us a 1 1/2 hour tour of the area, very informative
