Actually, 3 different clients of mine, on 3 different sailings, were told the same thing: she's targetted to get a ''Sovereign of the Seas''-type stretching sometimes in the near future. Plus, our local rep from RCI told me the same thing.
The only thing that still allows this to be a '' rumour'' ( albeit a very strong one.....) is that the drydock has not been scheduled nor has a yard been awarded the job yet.....( and if it has, RCI is doing a splendid job of not telling anybody about it....!!!)
With a recent rudder incident, the whole long term drydock may have been set aside for the moment....

I have been on the Enchantment before and after the stretch. Going for the 3rd post-stretch cruise in November. They did a great job with it and it is seamless. You can find it if you look real close under the arches.
From what I know, the Grandeur is the twin sister to the Enchantment of the 6 Vision class ships and best candidate for stretching. Something to do with engine room placement. Roland?
