Grandeur of the Seas

May 2014 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

wonderful ship, great cruise

this was a smaller ship but I enjoyed that is was less crowded in the public areas, we never had to wait for a table at my time dining for dinner, got a private table which is what we wanted, always got a seat at the show. We've been on bigger ships and the crowds and long waits were frustrating at times. We never had to deal with that on this ship. It was laid back and really enjoyable. We had no small kids with us so I can't comment on kids program. They said there were 150 kids onboard but you'd never know it. Kids were not running around screaming. The food in the main dining room was excellent. The food at the buffet at the windjammer was decent, there was enough of a variety that if you didn't like something there was plenty more to choose from. We were never hungry. We ate breakfast and lunch at the buffet and dinner except 2 nights in main dining room. Dining room staff were great. The staff was excellent. They were all so nice. they really went out of there way to accommodate us. The ship was very clean. Our room was always made up.when we returned to.the cabin. We were on deck 2 mid ship outside cabin. Could barely feel the ship move. Cabin was small but we were barely in it. We've been on cruises before so we knew what to expect with our cabin. The entertainment was great. The centrum did get a bit crowded for some of the entertainment so just try to get there a bit early to get a seat. We have no complaints of this ship. We had a wonderful cruise. Wish it were longer!

Baltimore, Maryland - easiest port to depart from. no problems, quick, efficient. we were on the ship quickly
Grandeur of the Seas Grandeur of the Seas - Get to centrum at least 30mins early for the entertainment to get a seat, especially for trapeze shows which are best viewed from main floor or first or second balcony. Don't go up too high or you'll be above performers.
