Love cruising!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 03, 2015

The eastern Caribbean Cruise was beautiful. The grandeur of the seas was a nice ship. Not much to do a lot of elderly people on this ship. The crew was friendly we only got 2 towel animals the whole cruise:( Not a big selection on food in windjammer. After a certain time coffee was old cold and strong. Water and ice machine broke. Beds to low to floor and very hard. We enjoyed our cruise but prefer carnival but would go again on this ship. Teri Whitmire was awesome from cruise.com . We LOVE CRUISING!!!!!!!

Food and accommodations

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 03, 2015

In whole we enjoyed the cruise and services. Especially we liked The Guest Service. At the same time if to compare this cruise with the cruises from two-three years ago we noticed that that food selection became narrower in all the dinning rooms.The grooming accessories in the bathroom were insufficient. The Queen Bed was not fixed properly and was constantly separating (with a large gap between beds).

Caribbean Cruise Review

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 03, 2015

I was very pleased with this cruise for a number of reasons. I thought the variety of entertainment was excellent, and there was something for every age group. The food was wonderful, in every venue that we ate. We especially enjoyed our dinners in the Great Gatsby dining room! The waiters were VERY attentive and went above and beyond to make sure that our experience was a great one. Our waiters were Francesco and Alexander - EXCELLENT job from the both of them!!!

If I were to have anything negative to say about this cruise I would suggest more than one self-serve ice cream machine, and it would be great if it was available after 8:30 in the evening. I also thought the customer service at the photo shop was below average. One employee, Kevin, was particularly cold and borderline rude to us as we purchased just one photo and nothing else.

All in all it was a great experience.

Grandeur Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 03, 2015

Not a great cruise, food was average in dinning room, had 3 bad meals, and waiter should be a dish washer (Ajay), Assistant Waiter Barrington was great he made the meals enjoyable.  Not my greatest experience on the Grandeur.

3 Times the waiter gave me the wrong meal and 3 times he served me before all the ladies at the table breach of protocol and shows poor judgment. Head waiter exceptional.

Best vacation ever!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 03, 2015

We had the time of our lives on this cruise! We loved the ship and enjoyed the intimacy of a smaller ship. The staff was EXCEPTIONAL and service impeccable. We enjoyed every single island and appreciated how different each stop was. We are already anxiously counting down the days until we can go on another cruise!

Grandeur of the Sea made a wonderful and relaxing vacation.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 21, 2015

Our vacation was really great, I would like to have had seminars on what to do and/or see on the stops rather than all the seminars on shopping.  There is only so much shopping one can do or need.  The entertainment was Top of the Line as far as we were concerned as was the food, service and assistance given.

Not up to par as normal

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 21, 2015

I have cruised with Royal at least 6 times and was very disappointed with this last one. Their were many things not up to standard with my other cruises. Especially this ship and it's workers. Many of the crew were not friendly as usual on other cruises.

The hand sanitizers were many times empty and there was not always somebody there to suggest their use. Twice the toilets in the public rest rooms would not flush and had been used over and over. There was empty hand soap dispensers also in the bathrooms .

I have gotten ill twice on my cruises, both times on this ship.

The ship in general needs much repair and a good dress up. The night before our last warm day, they decided to empty and paint part of the pool, refilling it with COLD water for our use on the last day it could be used.

Loved the islands and the staff too.

Due to the illness on ship on previous cruise before ours, many of the little amenities were missing (towel animals, writing material, children's activities, singing waiter, etc.).  Much of the crew were kept too busy sanitizing everything including us.  But no one got sick on this trip.  The staff went out of their way to make up for any inconvenience and the ports were great.

A great vacation!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 03, 2015

I love the Grandeur of the seas that departs from my home port!  Great price and a great experience!  The crew was amazing keeping us safe from any GI upset.  Wonderful amenities and I can't say enough good things about everything available on the ship.  I do want the poolside servers though, to make more of an effort to wait on you and engage you (reason for a 4 instead of a 6)  Otherwise just phenomenal!

Overall good cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Grandeur of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 03, 2015

Because of norovirus concerns and extra sanitation, the first few days were not as good as usual but it was overall a good cruise. The convenience of parking and boarding at Baltimore is great. This is nice time of year to get away to the warm caribbean at a very reasonable cost. Will be doing it again next year.

Popular tips for Grandeur of the Seas.


I enjoyed eating at the Gasby instead of the WindJammer.

The shopping on board is very limited. We have heard that RC is considering selling the Grandeur in a year or so. It's a great vessel for an intimate cruise experience, but she's showing her age.

I did not realize that the pastries with Starbucks were complimentary if you asked, even without coffee
