Default definitely,

we stayed in a balcony stateroom D1 #7614. Lots of activity all around the ship. Always something going on. Our vacation was not very relaxing but it was a great vacation.

I dislike the process of boarding the ship, the luggage etc, I find it very hectic. The only time that is relaxing on cruises is when you are having a nap or just walking around the decks. Although the shows aren't that bad either.

we checked in online the week prior to sailing. we boarded at 11:30 am, although we could have boarded at 11. the whole process from unloading bags and walking on the ship took 5-10 minutes. we had our soda passes and a walkthru the windjammer before noon.

Please tell me about the condition of the ship. My boss is going on his first cruise in April and it is on Grandeur. He isn't thrilled with the whole cruising idea and I'm hoping he is going to have a wonderful experience.

my wife didnt like the idea of cruising much because of the possible sea sickness. she get motion sickness easily but took a half of dramamine pill before bed every night, and she was fine. on the way to cozumel the seas we fairly calm, but on the way back they were rougher and she did fine.

the boat itself is in good shape. all of the public areas looked good. the room itself looked ok. we had a balcony and thought the room was bigger than we imagined it would be so we were pleased.

i have a closeup picture of the dent in the side of the ship where it hit the dock last year. otherwise the ship looked fine. this being our first cruise, i have no comparison, so it looked good to us. i will try to post pics this evening.

tell your boss to enjoy. he will stay busy enough with all the activites, he wont even realize he is on a ship.

Dear MaryLou, Your boss isn´t thrilled with the cruising idea! Haven´t you been able to teach him at least the most important things in life

Roland: Can you believe it? . Now, give me a little credit.....I got him from saying "I will NEVER to cruise" to going on a 5 day cruise next month. I'm making progress. . He is afraid he will be bored! Can you imagine?
