Grandeur to Bermuda

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: May 08, 2015

This was our 13th cruise - 4th time with RCI and 2nd time on Grandeur.  We so enjoyed our first cruise on her last fall, that we immediately booked this 7-night sailing to Bermuda.

The staff on board is exceptional - from the housekeeping staff, to the waiters, entertainers, and bar staff.  We did not encounter a single employee who wasn't outwardly friendly or helpful.  The ship is older and smaller compared to today's standards, but she is in tip top shape.  For both of our cruises onboard Grandeur, the food was the best that we have encountered on any ship.

Bermuda is a beautiful place.  The ship docks at King's Wharf which is a really great port - so much to do and see.  There is a free trolley that you can board right at the base of the ship which will take you throughout the dockyard and stops frequently to allow people on/off.  We booked a full day private Island tour and also a Glass Bottom Boat excursion through RCI.  Both tours were so enjoyable.

We highly recommend any cruise on Grandeur but sailing her to Bermuda is an awesome experience.

Excellent food and service; friendly staff

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: May 08, 2015

The main dining room food taste and service were excellent; however late night availability could be better--pizza-etc.  The "my time dining host" (Roshmann) was outstanding; calling every guest by name--from memory !

Outstanding room steward (Joseph) was  very attentive and helpful.

Ship was very clean, well maintained and nicely decorated--especially the Palladium Theatre.

Thanks Royal Carribean for fantastic service, food and FUN!  We will be back for more!  You were very accomodating and we enjoyed every second.  The house keeper was fabulous and our waiter was a gem!

Enjoyable Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: May 08, 2015

We had a great time.  The crew was very attentive, the ship was clean, and the experience was wonderful.  We did have some issues with the shower in our cabin, no hot water the first two days and then no water pressure after the hot water issue was fixed.  They did replace the facet on the 5th day which did the trick!  The excursions we took were excellent....the people were friendly and knowledgeable.  We did have an issue at Snorkel Beach....there was broken glass all over the beach which made it dangerous to enter and swim in the water close to shore.  Very disappointing.   The food on the ship was good but most times got to our table lukewarm at best.

Disappointed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: May 08, 2015

I am not pleased with the cruise experience we received on the Grandeur of the Seas. Demographics aside (most travelers were above the age of 60, my fiance and I are in our 20's), the ship was lovely. However, we ran into several complications on board which was something I did not expect on a trip I had booked in order to be streamlined (pre-booking exursions, pre-paying for all, and pre-scheduling meals to limit stress and fully enjoy our time).

I will begin by explaining that my then-boyfriend proposed while on board. The first night when returning to our state room we found a bottle of champagne and two flutes waiting for us. I now know that my fiance had ordered this to be delivered the second night (the night of the proposal), not the first, and it almost resulted in spoiling the surprise.

The second night we booked the chef's table (I now know he did so for the proposal). We never received the card inviting us to our dinner with the time, so a good portion of our afternoon was spent trying to determine how and when we would get to dine. After speaking to several individuals in guest services, we showed up on time and waited roughly 45 minutes before being told our dinner was cancelled, and that we would need to dine elsewhere. My fiance had made arrangements for photos to be taken during the dinner at this specific location, for a special desert to be brought out, and for this to be a special romantic meal. None of this was able to occur as he had planned. A man at guest services was able to help him get everything together in time, however, it was due to their poor planning that there was a wrench in the plan to begin with.

Our cancelled dinner plans were to be "made up" for by rescheduling to an evening later in the cruise (they were already paid for). However, the only available night and time fell during one of our shore excursions. I tried personally to cancel this excursion so I could be refunded, however this required meeting in person with the tickets during the shore excursions' limited hours at least 24 hours before hand. Because we did not meet with them in person in time, we did not receive the refund despite speaking with several people and leaving countless messages with guest services on the issue.

Bermuda was beautiful. The ship was beautiful. There was clearly a lack of communication among the staff, and made this trip a complete headache. Very displeased.

Good time, good service.......

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 28, 2015

 

We had a good time on the cruise. It was our second time on the Grandeur of the seas..... The bands were very good the comedians were fair....... I think that the service was very good. The staff was very attentive to your needs........... The ship is showing its age and several things were out of order...... One Hot tub wasn't working...... several toilets throughout the ship were out of order............ The mattress needs to be replaced......... THese were small issues compared to the overall good time that we had...

I enjoyed eating at the Gasby instead of the WindJammer.

As stated above, the Gatsby dining room was outstanding; windjammer was OK; coffee pots were often slow to be refilled at breakfast. Only real complaint is there was no food available late at night. The Palladium Theater was very comfortable and classy. Showers are too small
