February 2016 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas
I am partial to Royal Caribbean- they always do a nice job and the staff are very warm and friendly. Leaving from Baltimore is easy and often the cruises are a bit less expensive. This is a nice itinerary and we enjoyed the trip with a few notes to follow:
Positives- The staff -with special Kudo's to Meghann in the Spa, Antia and Allewynn in the Dinning Room, and Peter in Housekeeping.
The ports (Cape Canaveral, Coco Cay, Nassua, and Key West) were good places to visit.
Not As Positive- More Tenders needed for Coco Cay. The tenders to Coco Cay got backed up immediately and the wait time was bad. The weather turned and we never made it to the island since they were so backed up and then stopped taking people over.
Drink prices have increased. A glass of wine with the mandatory gratuity ended up being $17.00- that's crazy.
Time in port for Key West was very short- 11:30-4:30.
