Give the gift of cruising from Baltimore!

Looking for the ideal gift? Give a cruise from Baltimore! Nothing matches the excitement of a cruise, with onboard experiences as distinctive as the destination. It’s hard to beat the convenience of cruising from Baltimore. One minute you are “cruising” down the highway and shortly afterwards you are on board and officially enjoying your vacation! It sure does beat shuttling to the airport, checking bags, standing in the security line at the airport, hoping your flight isn’t delayed, riding on a cramped plane for a few hours, picking up luggage and finding your way to the cruise terminal. We’d rather be on the top deck of the ship having food and cocktails listening to the band play.

Cruising Royal Caribbean is great. It isn’t vacation days spent. It’s bragging rights earned. Conquer the tallest waterslide in North America and snap a shot from 400 feet up in a helium balloon. Grab a drink at the swim-up bar and soak up the scene in the largest freshwater pool in the Bahamas. Get a taste of Bora Bora with your own floating cabana. All at our private destination — Perfect Day at CocoCay. Get your thrills right onboard with a Rock Climbing Wall, aerial acrobatic shows and award-winning Adventure Ocean Youth Program, all onboard a fan-favorite Grandeur of the Seas, sailing year-round.

The ship is filled with so many amenities all are satisfied, whether you are a family, a couple or a group, there is something for everyone. It’s one of our favorites. The rock climbing wall is challenging and offers spectacular views. The enormous outdoor movie screen allows you to lounge poolside, and enjoy a move with a cocktail in hand. There are dining options galore ranging from formal to casual. Afterwards, enjoy stunning views from the Viking Crown Lounge as you plan your next day.
