May 2015 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas
Being this was our first time on a cruise we really do not have any passed experience to compare with. We will list what we liked;
The crew was outstanding , Our cabin attendant was outstanding, the variety of entertainment was good
. Our Cruise Director and Activities Director kept everyone involved that wanted to take part.
The food served from the buffet , the cafe and the Main Dinning room was great. The meal we had at Chops Grille was excellent. As for beverages if you wanted to go on a trip to get wasted you're gonna pay for it. We saw two people cut off after their card reach a limit for the day. With this I come to my 1 complaint; there needs to be more clairity as to what can and what can not be brought on board. We were told that we could bring 1 bottle each of wine , which we did, What we saw was passengers bring whole cases of water on board....knowing this would have saved us from buying bottled water on board $19 for 8 16oz bottles. At 1 port we asked the passenger service desk if we got off could we bring on any bottled water or soda and we were told no security wouldn't let us. When we left the ship I again asked security the same and was told sure as long as it was un -opened. Thank goodness for CVS in Coco Beach we saved from not spending $2.75 per can or the $6.50 per day plan.
All in all it was a great trip Jennifer from BJ's was really helpful and quite patient with dealing with our never ending questions ....bless that poor girl she really did a great job with booking our trip and we plan on calling on her again to book our next trip.
Oh one more thing , if anyone is ever considering a cruise and you hate to fly....most diffidently sail out of Baltimore , We were dropped off by our neighbor at 11:15 and at 12:15 we were on the top deck with a drink in our hands
