Overall excellent cruise. Great food....better than other lines...take note RCCL and NCL. Most of the entertainment was very good to great. Go see James in the piano bar. The comedian was very funny and clean no profanity, great family entertainment.

Grandeur of the Seas

October 2013 - Grandeur of the Seas to Bermuda

Great time in Bermuda

This was our 28th cruise, ttrip to bermuda, and our third RCCL cruise. Excellent service. Beautiful ship. The only negative thing I can say is the food choices in the dining room has gone down. they no longer offer escargot unless you go to the paid venues. The choices in the main dining rooms are more limited than in the past. It seems that they are trying to steer passengers to the the pay dining. Food quality is still excellent. Buffet dining excellent. Bermuda is awesome. TIP - taxi fares are expensive, try using the bus and ferry, inexpensive and fun. Food on the island is very expensive ($90.00 lunch for 3, no alcohol).
