8 Day cruise on the Grandeur of the seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2014


We had a very nice trip. The only problem we encountered was a very loud noise in our cabin on the

first and second nights. We went to the guest services desk and was met by a very rude woman. She

didn't seam to care about our problem. The next day we went back and got a different woman, who

was able to get us moved to another room. On a positive note, the cruise director was probably the

best we have encountered on our many Royal Carribean cruises. Over all we would recommend this

cruise to anyone

10 day cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 18, 2014


Overall the trip was nice. I felt 10 days was too long. I preferred 7 days. The staff was excellent and very helpful especially when we hit the storm. Several things I missed from previous cruises was missing - 1. too many paying restrauants. 2. Missed the individual small nightclubs that are on other ships. 3. Missed the bed mints that were put on the pillows, this is small but was a nice touch. 4. Would like to have the ice cream and coffee 24 hours. It closed before the evening movies were over. 5. More variety at the park lane cafe after hours.6. I called 2 times before sailing if we could bring our own bottle water since my husband was diabetic. I was told no, but saw several people bringing it onboard. I was told we could have water 24 hours but on the ship - We had to buy it or bring it down by a glass instead of having it available to us. On a high note the dining staff at our table was excellent and very friendly, calling us by name each night. Our room  steward was also very friendly and helpful.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 18, 2014


They claim to cater to first time cruisers....that's a bunch of bull. The only people who were catered to were the "club members" and long time cruisers. And I don't care but don't lie about it. They lied about how much time it would take to get things.Everything was 10 minutes and usually took no less than 45 minutes. TELL THE TRUTH

Magnificent Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 18, 2014


This cruise was magnificent in almost every way.  The service was superior.  The food was excellent, but we thought that the dinner menu has slipped a bit in quality.We have been on five cruises and Royal Caribbean is absolutely the best.  The one minor criticism is that the Wi-Fi services were way too expensive and I carried my laptop to no avail.  A big "Thank You" to all the fine crew who served us.  We are hoping to cruise again in the near future.

Royal Caribbean paring down services

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 18, 2014


This was the second time I have taken this particular cruise. As I live not too far from the port

it is an easy escape from winter weather. This crusie omitted 2 stops and arrived in Puerto Rico mid-afternoon, instead of i the morning.

 

The ship is older and has ben partially refurbished, but still needs some up-grades. The solarium area is quite small and very crowded on at sea days. 

 

Small amenities are being scaled back and it feels more like an economy hotel than a cruise.

Royal Carribean Cruise March 8-18

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 08, 2014


The staff was excellent and the itinerary was also awesome.  Enjoyed the extended days at sea and the adult area of the ship!  There was one area that could be improved and that was the organization of the passengers who were going on an early tour at Grand Cayman.  All the passengers who needed to be off the ship and tendered to shore early in the morning were grouped in the theater but not grouped by the numbers that were assigned and which correlated to the specific tour.  Therefore, some passengers who were on the first tour did not get on the first tender to shore, leaving the tour group to have to wait for an additional 20-30 minutes.  I suggest that since each passenger was assigned a number that was specific to the tour taken, those passengers should also be seated together in the theater, then each number is called and those passengers aboard the tender together making the muster for the tour on shore much easier.  This would also be helpful since many of the passengers with special needs needed assistance to stay with their specific group.  When passengers were herding to the exits to board the tenders, the slower passengers were always pushed to the back of the crowd since they did not walk as fast.

Royal Caribbean Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 28, 2014


The ease of driving to the Port of Baltimore was the main reason we booked this cruise.  Royal Caribbean provided excellent dining options, food and entertainment to top off our great 8 night vacation!

Dancer

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 18, 2014


Food has improved and is quite good.  Dancing in the early evening is a plus.  The solarium pool was freezing cold one day on the way back to Baltimore.  Should be heated on cold days.

Like an episode of The Walking Dead

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 18, 2014


The ship is relatively small compared with today's megaships so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that you might expect but that was OK with me. The thing that really got me was the age of the passengers. Now, I'm no spring chicken at 48, but I'll bet you there were fewer than 100 passengers (out of 2,100) that were younger than me on that ship. So if you're considering a Baltimore-based 10-day cruise, think hard and long on whether you want to walk around a ship that smells like a nursing home because of that "old-person smell" and dodge mobility carts on the way to dinner. There was also an annoying tendency for the elderly folks to come up to the pool deck at 7 a.m., put their towels and a beach bag on a lounge chair and then go eat breakfast, lunch, and maybe return to the chair around 2 p.m. for an hour or so and then give up that chair after that. 

 

The food was fine and I highly recommend the 4-hour, 5-course Chef's Table experience. 

 

The ports of call were OK but nothing to really write home about. Labadee is just a Royal Caribbean created theme park for the ocean with a lot of annoying vendors that stick crafts in your face and try to drag you into their little shops to buy a trinket. That gauntlet is exhausting. The Sandbar Beach (adults only) excursion was fun though. San Juan on your own walking around town is nice. St. Thomas is just another annoying diamond store after diamond store but if you get a cab to the Marriott about 10 minutes away, there is a lovely beach and bar you can hang out at for the day. St. Martin was blessedly low-pressure sales on the French side and we actually enjoyed shopping over there. The Dutch side was more aggressive but the main beach is nice and you can get beers for a buck. 

 

The entertainment was pretty mediocre. This was my eighth cruise so I've seen a little of everything. 

 

Overall, I'd recommend a different ship.

So-so cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 18, 2014


This was our 9th cruise overall and our third with Royal Caribbean. The good stuff - clean, well maintained vessel with an attentive crew; ship layout is sensible and interactive displays on each deck are very helpful; entertainment was very good to excellent; activities are numerous and well planned; ports visited were very nice and pleasant with no street beggars (Labadee is the best cruise line private area we've seen); we were on deck 2 aft so some engine noise was apparent but not objectionable; cabin otherwise was comfortable and the temperature controls worked; basically a nice cruise we'd recommend so long as you don't mind 5 days of sailing only. The not so good stuff - this cruise was sort of crowded and obtaining a deck chair around the pool or in the solarium was often difficult (I think people 'save' the chairs even though the ship's policy is otherwise); the main dining room had excellent service and food presentation was above average but the food quality was not what we expected, some food was overdone (steaks and other meat dishes) and some veggies were a bit crunchy-we've seen better; the Windjammer breakfast buffet was better than the lunch or dinner offerings, here again the food quality was not quite what we expected and the variety was a little shy of expectations.

Tips for Grandeur of the Seas

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

Find the little complimentary bakery by the Starbucks and Ben and Jerry's. We loved grabbing a cookie or my favorite Double Chocolate Espresso Brownie!

dine in the windjammer for all meals, I think 6 days at sea is little 2 much for a 10 day cruise.

HANGOUT ON THE 4TH DECK CENTRUM IF YOU ARE BORED BECAUSE SOMETHING IS ALWAYS HAPPENING THERE.

Try the specialty restaurants for dinner! Giovanni's and the Chop House are fantastic and worth the extra money. The ship's buffet has a fantastic breakfast and lunch selection. The deli is great for lunch.

Try the Solarium for lunch. Much less crowded and much quieter. Food choices are excellent. Don't skip the fresh squeezed oj for breakfast. It's worth the extra couple of bucks!!

The Park Cafe was a great spot for late night snacks! The roast beef sandwiches were fantastic!!

Coffee service starts at 6:30 am at the buffet

The pool for adults only was a wonderful area as it was much quieter than the main pool.

Make sure that you bring along some dress clothes for the kids if you're scheduled for My Time Dining, because they don't allow shorts. Unfortunately none of the shops on board carry long pants for boys. Thankfully, my size 6 pants fit my 10 year old son with the help of his father's belt

Enjoy the evening shows. Almost all were top-flight entertainment. And take the opportunity to meet and talk with the musicians when they're not performing. They are real human beings who are away from home for long stretches of time, and they enjoy meeting and talking with guests.

Take a night light and a backpack for your excursions.

Make sure to participate in everything you can! You're only in paradise for a limited time!

Make sure you take your own cold medicine in case you get sick. Prices on ship were triple what they are at home.

My time dining is the way to go.

Don't use this cruise line if you are under 65 years old you will be bored a lot of the time

Bring your own books; library has been drastically dimished

The ship overall was good. However, there is wear and tear that is beginning to show, such as some of the theater chair upholstering was worn and frayed.

We need more ships from Baltimore.

Loved the Windjammer for breakfast and lunch....quick! Loved the maitre d, his assistant, waiter and assistant waiter assigned to us in the dining room...So professional, well trained and happy employees of the cruise line!
