March 2016 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
Overall the cruise was very nice, This is our second time on the Grandeur. Being from Baltimore, it's hard to beat the convenience. The staff on the ship is absolutely top notch. The food, overall is great. They do a very good job of attending to specific dietary needs. The consensus of most repeat cruisers is that they prefer this size ship t the larger ones. It creates a better sense of cordiality. There are, however, some issues that need improving on Royal Caribbean. The Labadee stop is worthless. Very little to do and see and the price of activities on the island are outrageous. Royal Caribbean also needs to reconsider their pricing on drink packages, internet packages, etc. Absolutely ridiculous. I am not a long time cruiser, this is my third. I am noticing there are subtle reductions in the amenities now offered, The price to cruise is still the best value around, in my opinion, but there seems to be a shift towards more a la carte offerings throughout. And I don't mean just in the food offereings.
