Grandeur of the Seas in Georgetown, Grand Cayman

Good morning,

We sailed into Georgetown, Grand Cayman, under very cloudy skies.  I looked out of our stateroom window aboard Freedom of the Seas and noticed Grandeur of the Seas at anchor.  Grandeur is also a Royal Caribbean International ship.  By the time I went up two decks to Deck 12 to get a good angle for a picture, the skies opened up and the sun put a spotlight on Grandeur.  Wow.  How pretty!

Grandeur of the Seas (74,000 gross tons) is less than half the size of Freedom of the Seas (154,407 gross tons) so there is quite a size comparison for anyone who could have gotten a picture of us together in the harbor.  The smaller size doesn't diminish the cruise experience on board Grandeur, though.  It is a terrific ship.

Grandeur is a sister ship (both Vision Class) to Splendour of the Seas, a ship where My Honey and I spent a great deal of time together over eight years.   

Aboard Splendour we sailed East and West in the Mediterranean, all the way up through Europe into the Arctic Circle, Brazil in South America, and North America from Canada into the Caribbean.  Such wonderful memories.
I turned around and got a shot of Grand Cayman where the clouds still hung over the island.

I was so fortunate to have the sun cooperating for that first picture!


Check out Watery Wednesday.  :)

The sun spotlighting the ship really gave your photo the wow factor! You certainly have covered a lot of ground (or should I say water?) on your cruises.

Glad the sun did its part for you to get the shot of this ship, Lois.

Good morning,

Yes, I was very lucky to get that shot of the sun on Grandeur of the Seas. The weather out here for the past couple of weeks has been about half and half sunny and rainy which is normal for this time of the year. I love it, though, because temperatures are so comfortable and photo opportunities abound.

Thank you so much, everyone, for stopping by and for your kind words.

Very best,
