Grandeur of the Seas

October 2016 - Southeast Coast & Bahamas Cruise Cruise on Grandeur of the Seas

Lucked out with weather for a great cruise

Leaving from Baltimore is a dream since you park within a stones throw of the ship. The cruise director and staff were outstanding in providing continuous options for keeping you busy/entertained if you wanted to participate. The food in the MTD was fine and with the recommendations of the wait staff made decisions easier. The ports were all great with Charleston, Miami and Nassau within walking distance of the ship. We had to skip Coco Cay due to being too windy for the tenders and some shore activities, but spent another day in Nassau. Overall a great cruise. The ship is scheduled for an overhaul which should make it more comfortable and up to date.

The centrum which was a central stage allowed viewing from decks 4-9 for many musical and special events.

Cruise Tips

Harmony of the Seas

Harmony of the Seas

It is easy to get turned around and on the wrong side of the ship, especially on deck 7 where you cannot walk across. The ship is laid out in four colors for each quadrant which makes it easier.

Nassau, Bahamas

fine if you've never been here- always interesting to just walk around. Were not here long enough to get too involved.

Kotor, Montenegro

Unique entre into the tethered port and great views from many sites. Take a tour with Milo for personalized agenda and insight.

Naples, Italy

Interesting history and sights, took Hop on Hop off bus in visited Architectural museum and church of San Gennaro.

Barcelona, Spain

There are many great sites to visit and places to eat. Didn't this time, but HOHO bus is the way to go.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Nice old town with interesting sights. Took RCL excursion which was supposed to be 3+ hours but include 90 minutes of free time before returning to ship.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

Took HOHO bus here also but was limited due to recent Sept flood which destroyed property and killed 8 people. The downtown area is still interested with many shops and a small canal system.

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

Great stop with many landmarks to see. Took small van tour with Italytours.eu and had both a great driver and Vatican tour guide. This tour picks you up at the ship and not at the downtown bus area. This saved us an additional hour to see the sights. We had time and tickets to go in both the Coliseum and the Vatican, plus have lunch.

Rhapsody of the Seas

Rhapsody of the Seas

Check the itineraries since you may not be on board as much and onboard activities may not matter.

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

Especially convenient if you can drive to Baltimore and smaller ship with max passengers around 2500, we had around 2000.

Miami, Florida

Hop on hop off bus is great option and they pick you up and provide return to the ship. The $45 price is also reasonable.
