    Just knowing there's another cruise on the horizon is the driving force for us to do well at work. Our bosses should Thank Us with a cruise. "Don't Worry, About A Thing ...... Cause Every Little Thing, Is Gonna Be Alright........"

  1. I can not wait ..... we're on Freedom in March and this is one of the things I most look forward to. Question..... do they also have the fixins for a Taco Salad? That's one of my wife's weaknesses. Also, how are the hours at El Loco Fresh? I'm hoping it stays open relatively late, it would make an awesome late night snack.
  2. Ahhh, ok ----- actually, now that you mention that, I heard that 1/2 of it was, and 1/2 of it was not.
  3. I've heard a lot of folks reference Orient Beach
  4. Good point .... It's possible, since the earthquake was about as far away from San Juan as you can get (don't let the title of this post mislead you, the earthquake was NOT in San Juan), the biggest issues are probably in the more rural areas, and closer to the epicenter (the Southern and SW corners of the island.
  5. Looks like they got hit with a second/larger one this morning https://www.foxnews.com/us/6-6-magnitude-earthquake-rattles-puerto-rico

  7. Um, yeah, considering that this is less than a week old, I think most will agree, it is WAY to early to know. Let me suffice it to say this, if things are dangerous, RC will not put it's passengers and crew in harms way.
  8. There really arean't any alternatives ..... I've seen cruises leave early or late to avoid the storm...... I remember, during Hurricane Matthew, the cruise ended up going up to NYC instead of Bermuda ..... or, in really dire situations, they can cancel.... but that would be as a last resort .
  9. I've sailed out of Baltimore twice in September (5-nighter to Bermuda each) ---- In 2016, the weather was perfect, in fact, we were on the heals of TS Karl. In 2017, we had to deal w/ Hurricane Jose --- we went above it going out, below it coming back. The ship rocked and having a sunny day was tough to come by (except the day we left Baltimore), however, we had a fantastic time. Ended up doing the Sushi Making Class which was an absolute hoot. I look at it this way, the weather may not always cooperate, but you're on a cruise - plus, the captain will never put you in harms way, so safety was never an issue on Grandeur. So, like others have said, in September, it can be a lot like a crap shoot ---- for every comment where the weather was bad, you can find a comment where it was delightful. You just never know.
  10. Wasn't the Viking Sky the one that got caught up in that storm off the coast of Norway?
  11. Was there plenty of time with the Stingrays? Yes, although, it was a little crowded with other boats..... but it wasn't a big deal for us. Water was about 4 ft. deep. As for the Turtles, I was really impressed. Back in April, we were able to hold a baby, but I thought I heard a rumor that the policy allowing the public to do that may have changed.
  12. I've never heard of Radiance (or any Radiance Class ship) getting a Flowrider..... I'm not sure if there would be enough room.
  13. What an awesome review so far, I got through to when you get to Jamaica, will have to read the rest later. I really like your writing style. Thank You for sharing. Mark
  14. It's Enchantment .... that was an error. As for hotels .... especially in the Inner Harbor area .... I'd say the two most popular ones are the Hyatt on Light Street (right across from Harborplace) and the Sheraton, which sits behind the Hyatt. As for the free shuttle ones, there are two Best Westerns that I see are very popular, Dorsey Road (near BWI) and O'Donnell St (on the other side of the Ft. McHenry Tunnel from the Cruise Port) --- I know that there is a nice Pub right by the Dorsey RD location (Stained Glass Pub I think it's called)
  15. On the 7th Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me .. Seven Lava Flows six beach cabanas FIVE SEAFOOD TOWERS!!! four shore excursions three star class genies two crystal blocks and an up-grade to a suite
