Passengers boarding the Grandeur of the Seas arrived Saturday at the port of Baltimore carrying their luggage, hopes for a relaxing vacation and, in some cases, extra vitamins to ward off illnesses that have plagued the ship's last two voyages. "We're very concerned, especially because it's been onboard twice," said Gwen Rivera of Millersville, Pa., who planned to make her 13-year-old son, Brock, swallow some Vitamin C as soon as they boarded the Royal Caribbean cruiseliner. Her apprehension was shared by many passengers after learning that the Grandeur of the Seas had been struck by a second outbreak of a gastrointestinal illness in the past two voyages.

A 71-year-old Reisterstown woman on an ocean cruise from the port of Baltimore has died while snorkeling off Freeport, Bahamas. Carol Martin Olson was a passenger aboard the Carnival Pride, which sailed from Baltimore April 25. A spokeswoman for Carnival Cruise Lines said Monday that "a female guest" died on April 30, but declined to confirm the victim's name "in deference to their personal privacy." Olson's identity was provided by another passenger on the excursion, and a Reisterstown funeral home said Olson died in "a snorkeling accident in Freeport, Grand Bahama."

Hurricane Sandy forced Carnival Cruise Lines to cancel just two of its many ocean voyages this week, including a seven-day trip to the Bahamas on the Carnival Pride that was to depart this past Sunday from the port of Baltimore. The cruise line is giving refunds to all passengers, but has decided not to let the 2,124-passenger ship merely sit empty in the Chesapeake Bay. Carnival is now offering a two-day cruise out to sea and back from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning. Rates start at $129 per person for interior rooms, based on double occupancy.

Baltimore Sun reporters Don Markus and Jeff Barker weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. What should Mark Turgeon hope to get out of his team's summer tour in the Bahamas starting next week? Don Markus: I know Turgeon is counting on the Terps developing even more camaraderie than they had last season when they head to Bahamas next week. But outside of spending quality time together on the beach and the bus taking them to difference places, you know Turgeon is focusing on the chemistry Maryland builds on the court.

Will the Maryland basketball team show improvement from last season during its upcoming trip to the Bahamas? That's what third-year coach Mark Turgeon is hoping for during a three-game, four-day exhibition tour against local competition that begins Tuesday night in Nassau. In an interview last week, Turgeon said that the extra summer practice time allowed under NCAA rules for teams going on trips out of the country has turned the Terps into a more mature group. "To me, it's more about the practices and the preparation, which the guys have done a great job with," Turgeon said.

Lately, it seems everything is free. Free pancakes at IHOP. Free subs at Quiznos. Free nights at hotels. Free days at Walt Disney World. Free tickets to Universal Studios. The problem is most of it is stuff you don't really want or need. (When is BGE gonna give me a month's supply of heat for free? In Neverary.) The other problem is you have to spend money to get to the free part. But here's a free offer that could have a happy ending and end up costing you absolutely nothing except a few words.

There was a lot of hype following Jake Layman into his freshman year at Maryland. The 6-foot-8 forward from the Boston suburbs had made a dramatic leap in national recruiting rankings between his junior and senior seasons in high school, then got another boost when he made the under-18 U.S. national team the summer before he came to College Park. The first few months at Maryland were a bit overwhelming for Layman, on and off the court. Mark Turgeon softened his approach with Layman around Christmas after talking with the freshman's parents, and Layman responded during the second half of the season.

Maryland sophomore forward Jake Layman scored a team-high 25 points as the Terps closed out their foreign tour with an 88-77 win over the Grand Bahamas All-Stars this afternoon.

Junior guard Nick Faust (City) was Maryland's second-leading scorer with 20 points, while sophomore point guard Seth Allen added 15 points.

There was a lot of buzz around the time of the NBA draft that scouts and general managers were asking both Mark Turgeon and Alex Len about rising sophomore Jake Layman. Layman's size, athleticism and shooting range have put the 6-foot-8 forward on the radar, potentially as soon as the 2014 draft. I'm not sure that NBA scouts made it to the Bahamas for Maryland's three-game tour this week, but Layman certainly racheted up the preseason chatter Tuesday night in Nassau. Layman, who came off the bench, scored 25 points and led the Terps to a 92-84 victory over the Bahamas All-Stars on Tuesday night at Sir Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium in Maryland's opening game of the tour.

Shades of Dr. James Naismith. If ever a basketball game started from scratch, it is the Washington Bullets preseason contest against the Miami Heat this afternoon at Carnival's Crystal Palace Resort in Nassau, Bahamas.The first National Basketball Association game played on this resort island will be staged before a sellout crowd of 4,500 in what is advertised as "the biggest tent in the world."More a year in planning, every item needed to conduct an NBA game -- balls, a portable floor, glass backboards, electric scoreboards, clocks, sound systems and bleacher seats -- had to be imported at considerable cost from the United States.

NASSAU, Bahamas - Hurricane Frances barreled up the Bahamas yesterday, ravaging island after island with high winds, heavy rains and surging seas as it took aim on Florida. In Nassau, home to two-thirds of the nation's 300,000 inhabitants, 90-mph gusts blew out windows, sheared limbs off trees and ripped power lines from utility poles. White surf smashed boats into seawalls and flooded coastal roads. A Nassau teenager was electrocuted yesterday, the first death here attributed to Frances.
