Grandeur of the Seas

May 2016 - Grandeur of the Seas to Bermuda

Grandeur of the Seas not so grand, but still a worthy value

First, let me say the staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient in all regards. My second impression is that this boat is looking tired and dated. It's very clean and adequately appointed, but numerous little details belie its age. The entertainment wasn't particularly exceptional but amusing. The dining experience wasn't bad at all but the menus seemed a bit retro. The specialty restaurant we dined in had a pleasant atmosphere but the food seemed like only a slight upgrade from the standard dining room fare. Our stateroom was adequately comfortable but Spartan. The emphasis on this trip was value over glamour, particularly if you're savvy to the numerous extra cost items.

mlphilli's Tips

Baltimore, Maryland - I chose to leave from Baltimore due to its proximity and convenience. But keep in mind if you leave from this port a significant portion of your trip will be cruising the length of the Chesapeake Bay. The dock facilities seem very rudimentary and an accident had damaged the gangplank while we were away, complicating disembarkment.
