This ship is an older, smaller ship so it made my in-laws first cruise easy going.  It is clean and full of wonderful food and workers.  We enjoyed every aspect of the trip.  My only wish would be for a water slide!

3rd Time Isn't Always a Charm

This was our third cruise on the Grandeur of the Seas. We felt comfortable with this ship although it is showing it's age for sure. We had a wonderful state room, room steward, location on the ship and wonderful weather. However, a Thanksgiving cruise is for families with children. There were 500 on board. Some are well behaved but the few that were not really made it difficult on everyone else. I blame the parents for no discipline. My husband is a plain eater and he did not care for all the ethnic dishes and tasteless desserts. The dining room, Great Gatsby, had perfect service, Indar, and food was good if you got soemthing you knew what it was. Many items on the menu were unknown to me, Cock-a-leekie???  Lots of strange items. So, it wasn't quite the cruise we had hoped for. Partly our fault, but the entertainment on the ship was not what it used to be. Only 1 comedy show, and no Newleywed Game. Intertainment was so so.  Anyhow, cruising was calm, docking was wonderful, loading and unloading went perfect. Never saw a photographer except for Formal night. Anyhow, things were different.

We had a great time on the cruise. The ship itself was clean and well maintained, the service was excellent and the food was great. It helps to have the Unlimited Drinks package, since that means you get unlimited supply of bottled water, specialty drinks and beverages. The specialty restaurants were also great. We had a great time and the cruise exceeded all our expectations. Great value for money too.

Our first cruise with RC. Overall the experience is good. The food is OK. Service and staff are excellent. The kids' program only allow a very limited number of kids to be enrolled and every time there is a long line even 20 minutes before the kids' program starts. What can I say? It's not ideal for cruisers with young age kids.

First time on a cruise

Our favorite part of the cruise was seeing the different shows they had available. We enjoyed ourselves very much. Really liked the different games that were available to play, like trivia, & tri-bond. Your staff were very helpful to us. We thank the Captain of this ship for getting us safely to our destination. There were days when the sea was very rough! Definitely would go on another cruise. The cabin steward, the waiter, waitress, bartender, and people from your photo gallery were very personal. We would like to thank each and every one of them especially the head waiter. He took the time to know your name and was very friendly! Thank you for making our first cruise very memorable!!Happy

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Entertainment very good.  Weather not always cooperative. Staff excellent, especially mytime dining staff especially host- Khenn; headwaiter food and beverage Roshmann Coutinho, waiter Indra Leksmana from Bali - very professional and entertaining, assistant waiter Viacheslav.  Cabin steward Ricardo Estargo very helpful.

Food not always up to expectations, especially pastas= sauce was bland and tasted like it came out of a chef boyardee can,  and one night the scallops were 75% invisible.  The fish dishes were good and I loved the lamb.

The Old Grandeur

Old ship needs some maintence on it. Love the smaller ships most tho. Friendly staff. Food could have been better with more variety. Entertainment was good. Most activities at the same time so you had to choose missing out on some you wanted to attend. Weather was great. Wish the Enchantment would come back to Baltimore.

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.
