Compared to other RC ships, this one lacks some wonderful additions.  It's really too small for the number of cruisers it attempts to accommodate.  Crowded lobbies, crowded buffets, crowded shows,crowded pool, crowded solarium all distracted from my experience.  Also, 2 ships at CocoCay at the same time made that crowded as well!

Menu is no longer Grand

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 11, 2014


Ship needs new menu. Food choice was boring. My Time dining service is excellent. Neither the best nor worst cruise I've ever been on. The weather was great.

I enjoy a lot, but...

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2014


Everything was fantastic, but not much activities for kids (mine are 7 and 12), just the pool and I think 2 or 3 more things to do, we were waiting for Coco Cay Island, but the huracan "Arthur" crossed our path and ruins the chance to go there, but in this case (maybe not the first one), the Cuise should put movies in the theater (they're hundreds of movies out there) couldn't put 2 or 3 movies for the kids and the whole family to see?, or even TV videos or somthing like that.

This was more adult oriented cruise, I went in Carnival Cruise before (way better than this one) and kids have a lot of fun and activities.

you have a big screen there...use it, put music videos, movies...or even news

Superb trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 20, 2014


From start to finish, an overwhelmingly pleasant experience.  Every shipboard person was cooperative and pleasant; some were "over the top" as they went out of their way to make the trip memorable.  Activities were numerous -- all talent was excellent.  Meals were served with appropriate 'style' and enhancements.

 

Bermuda is a stunningly beautiful place to visit.  Our two excursions were also excellent.  The pirate theme glass bottom boat tour was wonderful and the staff were extremely good with kids.  Handled them appropriately and with care.  The minibus tour around the island was also quite good -- got a balanced view of all portions of society there.

Lots of time at sea

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2014


Love the convenience of leaving out of Baltimore.  Very efficient, easy process.  The trade off is four full days at sea.  There are plenty of activities to keep you busy from early morning to late at night.  The pool deck is always crowded and busy with activities or music.  The deck above is not as crowded or loud but you can still enjoy what is happening below.  If you really want a quiet space and shade, try deck 5.  We avoided the Windjammer.  Too crowded and not crazy about buffets.  The Park Cafe offers healthier alternatives.  Great sandwiches, salad and fruit for breakfast and lunch. We would get something there and take it back to our lounge chairs.  My biggests complaint:  the eating areas between the Windjammer and the Park were always FILTHY.  Tables not bussed, food spilt on floor.  They need more help to keep up with the turn over.  Or, a place for diners to leave their plates. Just disgusting. The Gatsby dining room offered a nice menu breakfast, lunch and especially dinner.  Definitely takes more time to eat there.  The food is very good.  And, if you don't like it, order something else.  Or, if you want to try two dinners, order two.   Don't miss 50/60's night or 70's night.  The activity staff does a great job.  The Quest game is a hoot; worth staying up.  We had my time dining but really, we were encouraged to come at the same time every night.  It seemed as though there were still just two seatings.  We only tried once to go without a reservation and that was while we were in port so it was not a problem. Our room was well kept and the stewart was always about if we had a problem.  We had a room with a large window which we enjoyed.  The shower is small but the water pressure is strong.  Plenty of storage space.

Family Vacation - Enjoyed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2014


Good relaxing family vacation

We had a good relaxing family vacation. We live in Virginia and 1 hour drive from to the port.  We were using wheelchair for my dad and it took us only 20 minutes to complete embarkation process and get on the ship. We had nice lunch on the ship as soon as we board. This was my second cruise in last two months. We enjoyed our first carnival cruise from Miami, but going and coming back from Miami was pain. We almost missed the ship due to airline delay. We didn't have any hassle while going from MD and we were in and out of ship and back to home in 2 hours. While coming back we had bumpy ride due to storm, but nothing much. We really looking forward for aerial show but it got cancel twice due to storm. We had 3 rooms and room stewards were nice to keep them clean when we were out. We had good vegetarian meal during breakfast.  We had to request for special meal for our lunch and breakfast since we couldn’t find much option for Indian vegetarian food. Our main dining waiters Head Nazar did exceptional good and took very good care of us during lunch and dinner. Alex was also very good in supporting out neeed. Other deserves special kuods are Sunny on Level 9. My rating went up from 3 to 5 due to his special attention to our need. The best part they were always smiling and trying to bring smile on others face too. There was always something going on ship but we were not very interested in many of the activities. We just relaxed and enjoyed on the port. Kids have lot of fun on rock climbing, comedy show, pool side and theater movies. 

 

We missed aerial show due to bad weather. They could have scheduled it on nice day.

Love and marriage show was not appropriate for young kids.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2014


Being my first cruise it made a good impression. Great activities and performances. Our stateroom attendant was friendly and helpful. The elevators were a pain but the murals on the stairs made walking up them a joy! We are informal people and the windjammer was the perfect place to eat and enjoy a good view of everything.

Just an okay trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2014


We've cruised with Royal before, but I would not travel on the Granduer again. There was a septic smell along the hallway that we smelled the first day which got worse as the week progressed. Friends traveled on the boat before the refurb took place and they complained during their trip....it's never been fixed and was VERY noticable.  FIFA World Cup was advertised, but they showed only two games on the big screen with sound. It was shown on the Schooner Bar small tv, but sound was only allowed when trivia or napkin folding was not taking place in the same area. Staff was kind, but we had to ask repeatedly for refills and were given the wrong meals and had to exchange our food with other guests that were seated at our table on several occasions.

Very relaxing cruise.  Easy boarding and debarkation procedures.  Great Dining experience.

We had a chance to tour the kitchen and extremely clean.  Junior Suite was very nice. 

Bermuda was amazing to see and horseshoe bay is a must.

88 Tips for Grandeur of the Seas

Get up early and get to pool or solarium, otherwise you will not get a lounge chair. Same goes for shows...early arrival is essential. Casino pays little...saw no winnings over 50 dollars.

Meals in the dining room were superior to any other venue on the ship for us.

if you want something and don't see it; ask and they will find it for you. If you enjoyed something at dinner and want more, or want to try something else, just ask. it is yours.

Truly recommend to use the Gatsby for all meals. If Ice machines are out or broken, I was told that you can get ice from the soda pop machines inside the windjammer - even if the doors are closed. On Bermuda, the day passes for transportation worked out well and made it easy to get around.

Get to centrum at least 30mins early for the entertainment to get a seat, especially for trapeze shows which are best viewed from main floor or first or second balcony. Don't go up too high or you'll be above performers.

Food was good in the dining room, but eating at the Windjammer was great when you were in a hurry or wanted less food.

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.

Don't expect too much and you may not be as disappointed. Look for aother options. There are stunning and beautiful ships to experience, often at less cost.

Do My Time Dining.
