There’s really no better value for your vacation dollar than a contemporary cruise. Meals, entertainment, and an optional alcoholic beverage package to make it “All-Inclusive” …and you’re floating hotel moves you to your next destination!
The Bahamas and the Caribbean are the most popular cruise destinations from the east coast. Many of us spend a hefty part of our vacation budget flying to one of the Florida ports and grabbing a pre-cruise hotel to avoid the stress of not making our ship on time. We spend a full travel day on each end of our cruise getting to the ship and getting home.
…BUT DID YOU KNOW… that it is ridiculously easy to get to the Eastern AND Western Caribbean, as well as Canada and New England, Bermuda, the Bahamas and Key West from The Port of Baltimore? YES, my friend…and on a beautifully revitalized ship! Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s Grandeur of the Seas brings her lovingly refashioned, uplifted and well-dressed self into port this May! She’ll be bringing on the Royal WOW experience with a new feature exclusively designed for her raised atrium. Guests will enjoy pop-up aerial acts through out the voyage, drifting down into the lobby with music, and the new R bar to spend spectacular days and nights.
I’m floored by the itineraries available. Having this ship sailing full time out of B’more is better than having your own private yacht…and MUCH more affordable! No, seriously…think about it. Once aboard this beautiful vessel, you’re waited on hand and foot with fabulous food and fantastic entertainment all for one price. You’re every want and need is attended to by the crew. They know your name, they know your preferences, they know how to make you happy! If you’ve never been on a Royal Caribbean cruise, you are truly missing out.
From Central PA, The Port of Baltimore is pretty much a straight shot down I83. It’s closer than BWI, you can park right at the pier for $15/day or have a friend drop you off. You can be on board the Grandeur of the Seas within a few hours of leaving home, having a fantastic lunch, adult beverages and getting to know your vessel instead of spending hours and vacation money on flights. It’s a no brainer, right?
New for Royal Caribbean this year is an experimental beverage (beer, wine, liquor) program for $55/day including gratuity for sailings over 4 nights. Most cocktails and beer run $5 to $10 plus 15% gratuity, so it’s not a bad deal for vacation imbibing. Truly a relief to not have to keep close tabs on your spending account!
The Grandeur will offer 7 different itineraries for the following year. Don’t YOU need a vacation? Here…let me get you started!
