June 2017 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Best Rotal Caribbean ship

Great ship - it is one of the best RC has - to visit the Western Caribbean. Lots of fun things to do on the ship, shows were great especially Mama Mia, the Ice Skating and the Diving Shows. There are a good variety of eating options other than the main dining room and buffet.

Grandeur of the Seas

May 2016 - Grandeur of the Seas to Canada, New England, New York

Grandeur of the Seas - Wonderful Trip to Maine & Canada

This is our 2nd cruise on the Grandeur. The first in 2001 was the Med and our first experience with Royal Caribbean and it was a positive one. The ship had been updated since then and is scheduled for another in 2017. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Ike was a fabulous room attendant. The Head Waiter, Yilmaz Komsu,  was very friendly always welcoming us by name and making sure our meal & table (My Time Dining) was satisfactory. We were fortunate to have Michael & Meldon and Melroy & Victor as our servers. The captain was a gracious host at several parties. John & Katrina Blair were wonderful hosts as our Cruise Directors and the "headliners" they scheduled were great, especially James Stephens 111 and David Klinkenberg. We enjoyed the music of the  "Grandeur Band", Fresh Beat, Harmony Duo and Doug playing the piano in the Schooner Bar. There were 2 "aerial act" performances in the Centrum that were most enjoyable. The shore excursions were very informative and entertaining. It was a great cruise to Maine, especially Bar Harbor, and St. Johns and Halifax in Canada. The Port of Baltimore was very efficient.

RADixon's Tips

Basseterre, St. Kitts - Our favorite stop on the trip. Friendly people and the island tour especially Fort Brimstone, was very enjoyable. Our tour guide was great, a former MD who now serves as a tour guide so he can spend more time with his family.
Allure of the Seas Allure of the Seas - TIP #1 Make your reservations ahead of time for the shows and other activities and then make your dinner reservations to avoid conflicts. TIP #2: The Windjammer will be very busy for lunch and dinner on your embarkation day; eat at the other many options to avoid lines.
Bar Harbor, Maine - Best port of call on the trip. Be sure to take the Arcadia Loop excursion with Cadillac Mountain
Portland, Maine - Go to Kennebunkport and go out on the boat for lobster trapping, Eat lunch at H & B Provision
Grandeur of the Seas Grandeur of the Seas - Deck 5 is a good place to find a deck chair and it is not crowded like the pool deck 9. The Centrum has music most of the day and evening.
