Good value, not for the young crowd.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

Crew and ship were great.  Ports of call were great except for the vendors in Labadee. DON"T go out back of the "APPROVED" market Hall, they are vultures. Our room was spacious enough but not so clean and our cabin guy wasn't too enthusiastic. He did what was asked of him but I feel we shouldn't have to ask him to run the vacuum or fill the soap or tissues. We finally got clean sheets on the 5th day after we asked for them. definitely suited for the scooter and walker/wheel chair geriatric crowd.

Excellent Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

We had a wonderful time on the Grandeur of the Seas.  The service and entertainment were excellent, as was the food.  They had plenty of activities on board and plenty of shore excursions while at Port.  We would cruise with them again.

My first cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

For my first cruise, it was wonderful. The excursions on the islands were so much fun! Swimming in the ocean was my favorite. The dining room staff in the Gatsby dining room were great. The servers for our table, Antonio and Antonio, were very professional and entertaining. The bartender at R Bar in the Centrum, Erdi, was quick with our drinks and never made a mistake.

Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

Very disappointed in several things on the ship.  The food was not too good.  We went to all of the places to eat, the original dining restaurant, which was ok; the buffet was much better.  Then we went to the Japanese restaurant, and we love the Japanese restaurant near our home, but did not enjoy this one. Then proceeded to the "Italian" restaurant and was extremely disappointing.  The last one, can't remember the name, but it was about "chills" and that was the best dinner onboard. 

 

We both were very upset and couldn't wait to get back to Baltimore.

8 day cruise from Baltimore

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

We enjoyed our cruise even though the first 2 days were very cold and the last two days were very rough.  We were with another couple and we enjoyed their company even when the weather and seas did not cooperate.  There were plenty of things to do onboard.

 

We loved leaving from Baltimore because we live around 90 minutes from the port.  Passing under the Bay Bridge was fun.  Also, Baltimore has priority boarding.  It was easy on with priority boarding and easy off with self-assist.

service was top notch

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

But the food selection was less then average in the windjammer. Activities seem to be spaced just apart enough that you must leave one early in order to get a seat at the next. Only has one drink special per day, unlike carnival that had a different menu of drinks per bar, and didn't have the ingredients for one. Make sure you specifically  ask the on shore excursion desk if you need to purchase ride tickets and/or excursion tickets.

Royal Caribbean has lost it's first class rating.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

RCI is continually doing away with amenities that once made this line first class. They are really pushing the additional restaurants that charge an extra fee to dine there; which is why I feel the dining room food has changed.  This cruise even in the dining room they wanted you to get the whole Maine lobster and a special filet steak at an additional price.  Every night they mentioned this.  One of their ships was made larger by making the cabins even smaller.  The beds are so low suitcases don't fit under them anymore. I noticed in the dining room that the waitstaff was new (within a few months) to RCI.  They have again increased the gratuities. If they paid their employees the proper amount they wouldn't have to take the gratuities from the passengers and then share them not only with the employees on your ship but with other RCI ships.

Trip as OK

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date:

Our dining attendants Anne/Ajay were great, as well as our stateroom attendant "Michael".  We felt there were not much fun things to do on sea days. I enjoyed the "spa" and the gym.  Attractions should be offered several times during the entire cruise.

A fun ship

Very enjoyable and very comfortable cruise.  All people involved with your stay and cleaning your room to the happy waiters and waitress's.  Everyone tried to be upbeat and wanted you to have the best vacation ever.

I enjoyed eating at the Gasby instead of the WindJammer.

I would not recommend this ship to adults without children. I am a grandmother of 10, and a retired preschool teacher, so I adore children but I have never been ona cruise with so many children who where let run unattended, push adults in food lines, who where let take over pool and hot tubs, EVER!

The Centrum was often so crowded that a seat could not be found.
