disappointing getting on and off the ship was

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

the ship is not what was advertised, this is a much older smaller ship that has suffered much damage in the past ( port accident, a fire) the age shows!! Though not a very kid friendly ship the out door theatre shows were for the kids.

service could have been better as you pretty much got your own drinks. everything came with a price tag (gratuities added) so beware if tipping they probably have already been added. not a lot to do on sea days and the casino was cash play only. A few good notes are that the room was nice we had an ocean view, food was great and the adult comedy shows were funny. getting on and off the ship was also easy.

Nice ship for short cruise

Nice overall cruise.  Ship is older and doesn't have the variety of activities compared to other more modern ships. Onboard stores had odd hours and sometimes closed during peak time (before/after dinner).

Great trip from all aspects.  Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas (a repeat for one of us) was a fine choice, with best entertainment, fine quality in food, service and accommodations.  Weather was chilly, as expected, in New England and Canada, with the sole raindrops appearing in Boston's Quincy Market.  We felt lazy at Portland, ME and didn't leave the ship.  Meeting new friends was another highlight, and we will keep in touch with those fellow passengers.  In most ports we chose to walk/meander and didn't take excursions, except in Bar Harbor and a friend's personal tour.

 

Not sure we would choose the jr, suite again, even though it was special to enjoy the balcony occasionally.

Great Getaway

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The favorite part of the cruise was the rest and relaxation of moving at our own pace,even if there was pace at all. The live music and other entertainment that we took advantage of while exploring the familiar surroundings of the ship. The food at our scheduled dining was superb and our waiter, assistant waiter and steward were very friendly and congenial along with their attentiveness to serving us. The Nexus 4 Group was always engaging and peaked our curiosity about their movements throughout their next assignment. We met folks from New Zealand, Tennessee and Virginia. We're actually planning to visit the New Zealand couple in 2019. I would highly recommend taking this trip from Baltimore to New England and Canada to anyone who would like to witness the splendor of the region.Big Smile

Just another cruise....

Guess I'm tiring of cruises in general.  Not fond of being "held captive" on the ship when at sea, plus limited time to spend on shore when in a port.  Nothing outstanding about Royal Caribbean, especially following cruise on Oceania in January. I know I can exercise self-control when eating, but there really are too many temptations!!  Felt ripped off by excursion in Saint John as the girl at the booth promised us "the best tour you've ever been on" - NOT!!  It was one of the worst!  All other ports were outstanding with amazing guides.

We had a marvelously fun filled time. Loved everything on the ship. People and staff very friendly and polite. The cruise itself was smooth. The food was great. The cleaning staff did a great job as did the delivering of breakfast. Our room was great spacious and clean. Will tell everyone to take this cruise. Thank you!Love

 

We will definitely be taking more cruises.Love

9 Night Canada & New England on the Grandeur of the Seas June 2017

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I was a little apprehensive about booking this d/t some of the negative reviews, but I am 100% glad I did! I have cruised several lines (Carnival, Norwegian and Disney), and this ranked right near the top! The staff was wonderful, the food great, my kids (age 14 and 8) had a wonderful time! Although our cabin was smaller than what we are accustomed to since we usually get a balcony room and went with inside stateroom this time, we made it work.  There was plenty to do aboard ship, the adults only Solarium was perfect and the Great Gatsby staff were very attentive! Ports of call were easy to get on and off and were well timed. Even the day we had to tender was well run. The shows were decent; that is certainly one area I think they could improve, but the timing of them around dinner was perfect. I would recommend taking this cruise a little later in the year than we did (June 1-10). Many of the excursions in Nova Scotia were not yet available because they start later in June. I enjoyed this ship so much, we are already re-booked for the Grandeur to Bermuda next June!

First timer on Royal Carribean

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I enjoyed the activities outlined for each day of the cruise. All the staff and attendants were wonderful and really nice to talk to. The only reason I give it a 4 stars is due to the motion i felt almost the entire time on the ship. I've been on another cruise to Bahamas before and did not have this motion sickness. Don't know if that is normal to Bermuda destination.

My family cruise

My family favorite part of the cruise was the celebration of our mom's 80th birthdayLove. We all agreed that there was not a lot of activities the cruise ship offered, and what we dislike and found very distasteful  the most is the forcefulness of the specialty diningAngry, there were more specialty dining restaurants then free dining. Also the other cruise ships have a laundry room with a iron and ironing board, not only were there no laundry room but the charge to do your laundry was $34.95.Nervous

Beautiful ship and beautiful trip destinations! One suggestion to the store, please put one more layer protection for glass bottles. I bought few bottles of liquor, and one of them was broken before I arrived home. other than this, everything was excellent, a wonderful trip!

i enjoyed the fact that if you didn't like the selection of food offered in one area, you could always finds something to eat on the ship.

Get to games and events very early to get a seat. Adults only pool is very hot and humid part of ship. Eat all meals in formal dining room. Don't waste money on the speciality dining. Expect long lines for cafe food and Starbucks coffee.
