When they leave the card in your cabin, turn it in soon. I think they said they limit it to 120 D and above

You know it is a bad sign when the farewell cake shows up. What is even worse, is how fast it disappears

Everyone must have attended this seminar today

Maybe that means I won’t have to start that diet after all. By my calculations, I would have lost at least 50 pounds this cruise

Oh, I didn't realize it was a C and A event.  We're just lowly Platinums. :classic_smile:  We were planning on taking the for-pay tour.  I wonder if it is much different.

They do an All Access tour that is a paid tour.

The backstage pass is a freebie offered to D and above. It gives you something to work for

Suites are invited to this tour also.

The backstage one that is.

 

Safe travels.

Thank you for your live review! Can't wait to get aboard tomorrow. Could you please post the time you dock and when you get off the ship. I'm assuming since you went through customs in Charleston you don't have to go through again.

You know it is over, when your ride is waiting before they tie the dock lines

The ship tied up at 7:00, and we were off the ship at 7:30, doing a walk off with luggage

They just waive you through. No need to go through customs, or have your passport out

Since you disembark on deck 4, this would be a bad cabin location. All the passengers stack up in the hall, waiting to get off

Customs was very quick for our 12 night a week ago.  We did have to show our passports, but the CBP agent just looked at our photos and sent us through.  We didn't have a wait at all.    I think for Bermuda cruises they usually don't bother since that run just doesn't have the possible issues that others do.  No one goes to Bermuda to shop lol.  At least not to get cheaper cigarettes, alcohol or jewelry.

Thank you for taking us along and answering our questions.
I really enjoyed your review. Will miss checking in daily with my morning coffee to see what new things you have posted.

Have a safe trip home. When is your next cruise?

I think we didn’t have to show them, because we went through customs in Charleston, with no other stops between

We are already in PA, and on the turnpike home.

Our next cruise is July on the Independence. We have a 14 night from Southampton, visiting Spain, Italy, and France with a post cruise stay in London

I will do a few periscopes, but will probably do a report after, instead of live. A lot of long port days for that one.

Thanks for following along.

Yep, that would be why.  I forgot that your itinerary wasn't just Bermuda.  But, even so, it's gotten much quicker over the last couple of years.

I will do some final thoughts and post the cruise compasses when I get home

 

For those getting on today, have a great cruise. 

 

In the meantime, here is a short bit from a couple comedians we had onboard.  Their show was hilarious

Thank you for taking us along on your cruise and giving us a warm up for our sailing. We got to port by 9:45, got checked in and are in the suite waiting area.  The concierge just came in and told us boarding may start as early at 10:30.

thanx again

Thank you so much....we just booked the Grandeur for August 2019 in a OV....its been awhile...we are normal Balcony people...I am a bit stressed about, but we should be fine.  We are Diamond Plus and Prime members.

 

I understand that the Casino doesn't open until the next day after embarkation and closes early on the day before arriving back to Baltimore?  Is that correct?

That is correct. Also, the casino is only open after 9:00 pm while in Bermuda
