October 2015 - Grandeur of the Seas to Bermuda
Arrival and departure were good, food was great, best value to get the Bar PP package, ship was nice for the size and age of the ship. Clean. Waiter and assistant waiter in the main dining room were more than accommodating, Excellent service. Great personalities and were fun. Windjammer restaurant was very good with a wide variety of food. I would like to have had two full days in Bermuda, arriving at 3pm, than one full day and leaving by noon, was just not enough time to explore the island. Ferry ride to the capital of Hamilton and the city itself were wonderful.
The main problem was smoking passengers, not staying in the smoke areas and the smoke areas themselves were the entire starboard side of the pool deck with no real division, closed off area or proper ventilation. Passengers/Children were subject to the second hand smoke. Going to the pool bar for a drink sometimes meant breathing in smoke. The Casino was impossible to go to, too much smoke and even a quick walkthrough had you smelling like an ashtray upon leaving, so we did not use the casino.
We enjoyed the trip, would like to go back to Bermuda, but they really need to fix the smoking.
