Default Grandeur Cruise Director

Does anyone know who is the cruise director on the Grandeur sailing ffrom New Orleans? We are sailing on the Grander next week. Also, has the Grandeur been sailing from New Orleans at 5:00 PM?

The first New Orleans sailing on November 15th left around 6:30pm, and yesterday's sailing (Nov. 22nd.) left around 2:00 am Sunday morning.

In reply to your other question, the present cruise director is John Blair.

Thanks for the info. Do you know why the vessel was delayed sailing, especially at 2:00 AM?

Again thanks

The November 22nd sailing was the first sailing with the "modified" 7am Sunday departure instead of the usual 5pm Saturday departure. Of course we locals knew this was impossible since the Carnival Conquest and Norwegian Dream arrive around 4am each Sunday morning and occupy the only two berths at the cruise terminal. Therefore we knew Royal Caribbean was blowing smoke by listing departure time as 7am since the Grandeur would have to depart before 4am from berth #1 in order to make room for the Conquest. The really strange part is that Royal Caribbean is still listing 7am as the departure time for these sailings even though they know it's not accurate or truthful. I guess they're listing it that way so they can classify Sunday as a "Cruising down the Mississippi" day. The games people play!

Thanks for the info. Just spoke to Royal. Only 4 sailings are set to sail on Sunday Morning at 2:00 AM. Example is January 3rd sailing. Checked Royal's web page and shows 2:00 AM sailing. Was advised the sailing are early because of request to see sun rise as crusing down Mississippi River. Has anyone made this request to Royal or belive it is a good idea?

Glad to hear they finally updated their website to reflect a more realistic departure time. I've only cruised down the Mississippi during daylight or night hours so I can't tell you about a river sunrise specifically, but if it's anything like a sunrise at sea it should be a beautiful sight. Our Grandeur cruise in April is scheduled to depart New Orleans at 5:00 pm so we'll be in the Gulf of Mexico at sunrise.
