This month the Port of Baltimore welcomes back the Grandeur of the Seas. The ship was once home porting in Baltimore, but left a while back to undergo a $48 million renovation, and now she’s back and better than ever.
The ship can hold 2,446 passengers and packs as much punch as Royal Caribbean’s larger ships, with a more intimate feel thanks to the renovation. Some of the new features include updated linens in the staterooms, flat screen TVs in the staterooms, a new Nursery for the toddlers and babies onboard and a movie screen on the pool deck. The ship’s public spaces have all been upgraded too and the Centrum of the ship will now play host to nightly shows where performers hang and float high in the air.
The most exciting new features on the ship are the addition of new dining and drinking venues onboard. For an additional fee passengers can now have a night at Chops Grille, Royal Caribbean’s signature steakhouse, or settle in for a night of Tuscan fare at Giovanni’s Table. There is also Izumi, an a la carte Asian fusion restaurant, and the complimentary Park Cafe. Passengers on the Grandeur will also now have the option of dining at the chef’s table in the main dining room. [Read more →]
