Excellent Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 29, 2014

We were a group of 10, five couples and we all had a wonderful time.  We liked all the ports that we stopped at, and enjoyed our stay in all of them.  Food was delicious and plentiful everyday.  Crew were all very likeable and kept the cabins immaculate and waiters were excellent.  We did run into a storm with 10-20 foot waves and I believe the Captain said upto 30 mile an hour winds.  The Captain kept us updated about the storm and what we should expect, noises huge waves, and everything else that comes with storms, but we all survived and the Captain and the crew did everything possible to keep us comfortable.  All in all this was a really good cruise.

Not a good cruse

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 29, 2014

We were in a bad storm 30 foot swells. The entertament was in poor tast. We herd lould banging noises all nite.The shrimp we had at dinner was bad . The shore excursion, Dolphin encounter in Caymon Island with the seven mile beach . was a ripoff . when I complained about it. all I got was there was nothing they could do about it. We were supposed  to get Beer and Sandwiches at the beach. we seen none. They said it was there I would like to know were,  In Cozumel we were harrased so much by the venders we couldnt enjoy ourselfs. This was the worst cruse I have ever been on.

OVERALL OPINION OF SHIP

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 29, 2014

Had a great time. Service and food was very good. All the staff on Grandeur of Seas are very friendly and helpful. The public areas of ship are attractive.   Shows were good, but not as nice as years ago. The only negative thing about  that ship is it sometimes  has a smell of sewage. This is our second time on that ship and they still have not taken care of the problem.  The ship is getting older, they need to keep up better with their plumbing and behind the scenes repairs.

SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 29, 2014

Grandeur was a great ship with great food and service but the experience was ruined by the smoke in the casino which drifted out to other parts of the ship.  I could not even go in the casino the smoke was so bad.  Had never experienced this on any other ship. Ventilation was terrible.  Would even walk down one deck to get past the casino, then back up on the other side to get to the Palladium Theatre.

  Unless you are a smoker, I would not recommend this ship.

Wonderful Time!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 21, 2014

Had a great cruise with good friends.  The staff was the best.  Everyone was so friendly and took good care of me.  The ship was always clean and the food was always good.  Was disappointed they closed the port in the Keys, but they added more activities on the ship for us to do and lowered the price on the drinks for day.

Wet with a bad smell

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 21, 2014

First I want to start this review by stating, our two servers (John & Sha Ron) was excellent. If it had not been for them the experience would have been all bad, but those two was the greatest.

On the second day of our cruise we advised the service desk that our floor coming out of the bathroom was wet and it left the room with a bad smell. Someone brought in a big fan to dry the floor, well by bed time the fall was still wet but do to the loud noise from the fan we had to put it out side our room. We went back to guest services again the next day to advise the problem had not been resolved. The manager which was a female she asked why did we take the fan out of the room. We had to explain we were unable to sleep with the fan running. Plus the problem still existed so at that time we asked if we could be moved to another room. Not a upgrade but just to be moved. We were advised there was no more room available. In the mean time there was word that a pipe had busted and there was a few rooms that was having problems with water on the floor. By the fourth day or should I say night and many complaints, magically there was a room available. We were now moved to the front of the ship..... which came with experiencing  a lot of movement and noise from something hitting the side of the ship. Oh, plus we had to pack everything back up at 9:30 pm and then unpack again once moved. Then to top it off, one of the reasons I choose this cruise was because it include Keys West. Due to high winds the stop was canceled.  I know this decision was made for the safety of the passengers, but it was a big disappointment. I have cruised with Royal Caribbean previously and the ship & cruise was fantastic but this time it was not good. I think if they would have moved us to another room on the first day of our complaint, we would have felt like our concern was priority. But instead I was left feeling like, we have your money and now you are stuck with what ever we give you.

 

Thank you for your time in this matter.

Dissappointment

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 21, 2014

Our family has cruised on other ships prior to this one. We heard that Royal Caribbean was one of the best. Wrong. I won't say that it was the worst experience of my life. If I would have nothing to compare it to, I would probably have a different review. The food was not the best and the selection was very slim. I ate the same meal for 8 days straight. Our room attendant was, by no means, out to win a gold star that is for sure. He left his cleaning rag and the door stop laying on our table. We had sand on the floor on Tuesday from the beach, it was still there when we left Saturday. The cups in the bathroom, used to rinse our mouths were never replaced so we were using dirty cups every day. He told us that he couldn't make us towel animals every day because of the towel shortage. He made the animal, filled our bathroom with towels and left a stack of almost 10 towels laying beside the animal along with the cardboard that he cut the eyes out of laying on our bed. He left our dirty towels lay on the floor. Our hair was on the counter where we had combed it, it had never been wiped up. The floor was gross. I have pictures of the floor. The shows were less than spectacular. We watched the same one twice. These are just things that we were not used to. I think we will go back to cruise lines that we know that we are happy with. Thank you for the experience.

Not like it use to be

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Nov 21, 2014

I was a little surprised to see that Royal Caribbean was not like it use to be.  It was visibly noticeable that the Grandeur of the Seas was an old ship.  There were torn and missing ceiling tarps, interior water leaks, rusted areas, no hot water and not as clean.  The only thing that they still excelled in was their food, no complaints there.

EXCELLANT EXPERIENCE

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

Very friendly, considerate and helpful employees. The ship is kept very clean and safety for

all aboard is uppermost. This cruise we met the most friendly passengers of any cruise.

We believe this is because the friendly employees make for the passengers being friendly 

to everyone. Choice of ports was important to us and Royal did not disappoint.
