Excellent Cruise - Staff very friendly and helpful!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Oct 10, 2014

The Cruise On Royal Caribbean -Grandeur of the Seas was smooth sailing from the time we left our hotel - entered the boarding area --- boarded the ship and first drink in our hand! Everyone was very friendly and helpful! Lunch was ready and hot in the Windjammer Restaurant.An abundance of choices were offered to please any pallet. Our cabin was ready and waiting for us by 1:00 PM and our luggage was there when we entered the cabin. 

Music was playing all around the ship - it was very lively and welcoming! The Cruise Director and Staff had activities ready for all on the ship once we did the mandatory safety drill before setting sail at 4:00 PM.  The Entertainment, Food and People were all top notch on this cruise. The Dining Room Staff went above and beyond to please you and meet your every need! I highly recommend the specialty restaurants - Giovanni Italian Restaurant and Chops Steak House even though we didn't want to leave our regular servers both nights we really enjoyed both restaurants thoroughly!

All in All I would give this cruise a 10 out of 10!  We had a great time on board the Grandeur of the Seas!

I am loyal to Royal Caribbean

Our 8 day New England/Canada cruise was wonderful, in fact this was the second time we did this cruise because we enjoyed it so much.  The ship's crew were kind and friendly and met all of our needs.  The food was good but we enjoyed the dinners in the main dining room more than the Windjammer buffet . The food wasn't always as hot as it could have been in the Windjammer and though there were ample choices, the food was just average.  The main dining room's food was excellent and we dined there every night.  The excursions were good.  We took two of them, in Halifax, NS and the other one to Freeport, Maine.  We docked in Portland, Maine and took an excursion to LLBean and some of the other outlet stores.  There are also restaurants where one can dine on local faire, including lobsters, clams, etc.  We also took a tour in Halifax to Peggy's Cove.  That place is not to be missed.  The scenery is unbelievable.  There's a lighthouse, small eatery and gift shop there.  From there we were given a tour and history of the sinking of the Titanic and burial ground in Halifax, and then taken through the town and given a history of the explosion that occurred there on Dec. 6, 1917 which destroyed much of the city and claimed many lives.  The tour was well worth the price.  We did a walking tour of Bar Harbor and enjoyed it too.  We dined at a local seafood restaurant (wish I could remember the name of it!).  It's where the locals dine and the food is superb.  As for the ship Grandeur of the Seas?   She is a good ship though she is beginning to show signs of age.  However, the ship's maintenance crew does a good job at keeping her "ship shape".  The entertainment was good.  The activities aboard the ship were OK.  Would I recommend this cruise?  Most definitely.

First Time Cruisers that had the time of their lives!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2014

We are first time cruisers and our expectations about how a cruise operated and how much activities were had far exceeded our thoughts.  There was always something to do.  I also went with a large family group so there was always someone to do things with.  We didnt book via group sales and were a little worried we were going to be separated at dinning but they did everything to make all 50 of us close together.  The fact that the Grandeur is a smaller boat the main areas were always enjoyable.  I never found myself feeling crowded.  While we have nothing to compare this cruise to, we felt it the best!  We are now HOOKED and looking into booking another cruise next year.

Bermuda, the freindly island

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2014

Love this cruise, the port is very safe, Bermuda is clean and beautiful. I never feel threatened even if i explore by myself. Royal Carribean staff do everything they can to ensure you have a great time. There is always too much to do, i never seem to to have enough time to see and enjoy all of the festivities on board. Dining staff is terrific and very accomadating. I travel with my son who must be on a gluten free deit. They are very educated and he has many choices for meals. they will make just about anything he asks for. the ship is wonderful to me. I dont beleive i would feel the same on a larger ship, you feel as if you are part of the family. the staterooms are clean and it always amazes me the way the staff interacts with everyone. Love, love this cruise

it was ok

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Oct 16, 2014

Stateroom cramped, bathroom ridiculously tiny. We paid for an upgrade balcony stateroom, it was barely adequate. The staff is very good, especially our service in the dining room. Food in the DR was fine, but the portions are very small - good thing you can order all of what you want. RC has cut back considerably in recent years. This was our 2nd cruise on G of the S, and items that were included before are now extra. We felt like they were nickel and diming us all the time, from the time we arrived until the time we left it was a constant sales job. Very annoying. Excursions were adequate but nothing special. Might be better off buying your tours right from the locals in town. They blocked internet service also. If you want to get to your email or use the web you have to buy their very expensive wifi package. Lastly, the G of the S does not handle rough seas as well as larger ships. You should consider larger vessel out of Jersey or NY if that matters to you.

Gadsby was the best Food and Service we loved our waiters In and Khenan at table 560!

Preferred lunch buffet at Windjammer over food at Gadsby

The decor and artwork are beautiful. I really appreciated the interactive screens near the elevators that allowed you to view your location, gave directions to onboard locales, venues and activities.
