Me too. I'm going on the Grandeur Dec. 16 I got a good deal on a cat. c cabin. $1299 per adult and $199 per kid. I'm going diving at each island, and the wife and kids will have to amuse themselves. There are lots of beaches and it will be warm, in contrast to Oregon in December.
What would be good for the wife and kids to do while I dive?
You'll be doing the southern caribbean, right? Did the same itinary last year on
Rhapsody and it was super. There are tons of things for the wife and kids to
do while you dive, no problem. Have a great time, hear the ship is just wonderful.
YOu can catch a review here if interested:
George, Thanks for the cat C photo. After I booked the cabin, I realized that a balcony will be great for drying my dive gear. Better than the tub/shower. I can't wait to dive the warm water of the caribbean. I live in Oregon, where the water isn't warm.
Bruce You are more than welcome. The water in the Caribbean is indeed great to swim and dive in. I have some wonderful beaches not all that far from me that I haven't gone swimming in for years, just nohting like that crystal clear green and blue water of the Caribbean.
I was on the Grandeur on the Sept 2-9 Eastern Caribbean Sailing. It is a beautiful ship. Just too many kids everywhere!! I don't know what type of kids program that ship had but apparently it doesn't hold their interests because they were EVERYWHERE!!!
You got it! We're going with 2 other couples and we were kinda, sorta, hoping to avoid the Spring Break crowd. You can e-mail me after we get back and I'll be more than happy to answer all of your questions. Rick
