The Grandeur of the Seas is an older, smaller ship which is what we look for - I had sailed on it when she was fairly new (out of the East Coast) and she was as grand now as then ( just a little older!!! Enjoyed the indoor (adults only) pool area and the general adult atmosphere although there were many families aboard. All of the children were well behaved & that included teenagers who are sometimes hard to please. Everyone seems to find a place to fit in on the Grandeur - guess that's what makes her "Grand".

Pros: Use of Tampa as departure terminal

Cons: Beds

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? Yes!

Cozumel, Mexico
One of the least interesting spots along with Grand Cayman - unless you are into underwater sports or shopping (which is not great if you're looking for bargains)
Don't Miss: Carlos & Charlies and/or Senor Frogs
Key West, Florida
Third visit to Key West - didn't even get off the ship but everyone coming back had smiles on their faces - Previous cruise I took the Trolley & it was most interesting and informative and fun.
