Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Grandeur of the Seas by Paul Mexico July 14, 2002

We started off early morning on the 13th. We drove to San Diego, where our dock was. After some serious car trouble, ;( we arrived in San Diego.


We stayed at the Holiday Inn Bayside. It wasn't bad, and we had a good time there. The next morning, we cought first sight of our ship. It was bigger than I ever expected. I started to get excited!! At around 9:30, we got on the boat and our story begins.


It looks like the ship is being renovated. Every other day, some people would tear up the old carpet and put in new. The shows were great. I went to every one. Bingo reached around 20 thousand by the last day, but i was told that it always does. Our waiter, Martin, was awsome. He tended to our every need. We sat with some great tablemates, and the food was great, except for the snails (I forgot the french name!) They were really salty.

Our room attendant was amazing. He always kept our room clean, and made towel animals.

I see alot of people on this site worrying about the small stuff. I did too, until I got on the ship and none of it mattered. I thought the cruise was a 9 out of 10 stars. It was great!
