Grandeur of the Seas

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

Geriatrics of the Seas

Although my wife and I are in our pre-retirement years, I did not quite expect the overwhelming number (80%) of very elderly passengers.  The positive aspect is there were only a very few children and teenagers aboard, but also only few couples in their 30s - 50s.  We needed a lot of patience with blocked hallways and passageways filled with scooters, walkers, and SLOW movers, but for the most part, we enjoyed our fellow passengers.

scottyaln's Tips

Boston, Massachusetts - The Freedom Trail (free walking tour) was a wonderful opportunity to travel through the heart of the city and have a quick visit at some of the historic landmarks. ***Limit your time at the Boston Commons area as there are many homeless and the foul smelling odors are prevalent.***
Bar Harbor, Maine - The Acadia National Park was a wonderful excursion for the short period of time we had at this destination. ***For limited mobility persons and some of the very elderly, I would be cautious of taking this shore excursion as it required using a tender (shore boat) to get ashore. On our return trip to the ship, 3-ft swells and brisk winds made for an adventurous transit back aboard; with a very scary time for a few passengers who had mobility difficulties.***
