Another wonderful cruise with RCI with my Mom. We were sat at a table full of mothers and daughters, nice touch. The Granduer is still a great ship, Dan the cruise director was so nice, his assistant Rachel took a shine to my Mom and made her always feel special. We had a great room 8040, that was very convenient. The weather was ok, low 70's, but very windy, the Solarium was the place to be. I do not remember a ship that had better attendance at so many shows and activities. Many shows had no seats left, except a few singles. The shows were entertaining, not my thing, but Mom loves it, she made so many of highlight videos, just smiling and dancing in the background of everything. It was an older crowd, Monday to Saturday cruise, the day after the Superbowl. Some folks encountered problems with transportation or hotels, that did not plan ahead. When I went to return the rental, there was a guy screaming and cussing about an hour late fee, I was charged also, but I walked up to the desk, said politely to the desk clerk, everything he said without the cursing...she credited my bill without another word, and I left he was still screaming ! Any questions ?

Some people will never figure it out. They just can't take responsibility for their own actions. Their lack of planning is everyone else's fault.

I know how busy Tampa was since I got off the ship the day you got on. I stayed one extra night in Tampa to avoid the crazy airport the day after Superbowl. The news said the airport was worse than Christmas or Thanksgiving.

Glad you and your mother enjoyed the cruise. I enjoyed mine even though the weather wasn't so great. The day in Cozumel was pretty good. The solarium is a nice spot on the Grandeur. I like it because it's much quieter.

Thanks, how did you get a room ? My Mom thought Tampa was land of the Port O Johns when we drove through Bayside....

Welcome back, queenofcruising. Sorry the weather didn't cooperate, but glad you had a good time. I can only imagine the chaos in Tampa. Can't wait to see what y'all select next!
