Grandeur of the Seas

June 2014 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Hit and Miss

This is an older ship which as size limits and had too many passengers.

The good: Diner in the main dining room, entertainment at the theater, stateroom attendant.

The bad: All other food service (buffet, Park cafe), ports of call (late arrival in Nassau and delays for Coca Cay), lack of quality entertainment and activities, signs of maintenance and repair (open ceilings, closed areas), tables left dirty. Nothing for my 13 year old son. One staff assigned to the youth area and they offered no fun or exciting activities.

 

The bottom line, too pricey for the return.

You should do your research! View a YouTube tour, READ REVIEWS, There are truly beautiful ships available at attractive prices.

MSC Divina, Carnival Conquest or Carnival Liberty.

 

For us, the Grandeur of the Seas was a one time deal. Not to say that Royal Caribbean is out, but again LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP!!!!!

Blueelmforever's Tips

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island) - Too long getting off the ship. Line cutting with no monitoring (elevator to 1st deck puts you first in line), Island buffet ran out of food and was not restocked. Lots of hot dogs in a pan of greese though!!!
Nassau, Bahamas - Sorry, but when you can not get off the ship until after 3 pm and Atlantis "closes" at 6 or 7, not much time here! Do not pay for somethng you can only use for a few hours!
Port Canaveral, Florida - Why here? The docking port forced you to pay if you wanted out. If you never experienced the NASA it would be better, but we have. No activites during the day. Have something other than a so so lunch
Baltimore, Maryland - Not too bad, but the luggage guy seems upset that we did not have tags, then yelled at our taxi driver. The rest of the process is fine.
Grandeur of the Seas Grandeur of the Seas - Don't expect too much and you may not be as disappointed. Look for aother options. There are stunning and beautiful ships to experience, often at less cost.
