Grandeur of the Seas

September 2015 - Grandeur of the Seas to Bermuda

Small ship with nice appointments

We left Baltimore on an overcast day in September only to be met with rain, high wind and large waves when we got to sea.  It was a rocky sail to Bermuda, where we got in to port about six hours late. (We wonder if the stabilizers in the bow of the ship were working since one night we would hear a noise like a big motor running and the ship seemed to smooth out but when the noise was gone, the rolling was back). Many got sick, including the crew from what I learned.  The crew that was not sick ended up working many more hours than normal and therefore some of the services suffered, mainly cabin maintenance (it took 2 days to get our shower head replaced).  Also, because of the rough weather, the upper decks, pools and rock wall were closed.  They were only open the last day of the cruise.  The crew was mostly pleasant, the meals good and entertainment very good.  Seems there was always something going on somewhere in the ship, even though a lot of the outside activities were canceled.  There was plenty of seating at the pool for everyone (including the last day when most every one was up and about).   Wish we had more opportunity to enjoy the movie by the pool at night.  The embarkation and debarkation was the best I have experienced in many cruises.  Considering the circumstances, we enjoyed our cruise.
