May 2019 - 9 Night Bermuda & Bahamas (Baltimore Roundtrip) Cruise on Grandeur of the Seas

Perfect Day at CoCoCay.

Cruising on the Grandeur for me is the perfect 'get away'. It has everything that I need. Since I am retired and it is so reasonably priced, I can do it three times a year. This year I'll be back in August and December. Love the Grandeur.

Since I do not require all the bells and whistles of the larger ships, the Grandeur is the ideal size to suit my needs in a most relaxing cruise.

As always, I love cruising. It's an inexpensive get away. I am easily pleased and tend not to complain about insignificant items.

Grandeur of the Seas

May 2017 - 9 Night Bermuda & Bahamas (Baltimore Roundtrip) Cruise on Grandeur of the Seas

Most Enjoyable

My cruise was everything I could hope for in an exciting vacation.  It was my first cruise as a Diamond Member and I enjoyed all the perks.  I always enjoy meeting so many interesting and friendly people at meals and trivias.  I generally eat as many meals as possible in the Main Dining Room.  The food and the service was five star as usual.  I prefer the size of the Grandeur, we all seem like one big family.  I will be sailing on the Grandeur again on Dec. 9.

Carnival Pride

December 2016 - 7 Night Bahamas & Florida (Baltimore Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Pride

Relaxing Fun

Carnival Pride is a fine ship.  The crew is outstanding.  The cruise was a fine value for the money.  The food was very good.  The entertainment was not quite as good as previous cruises.  The balcony room was very nice.  However getting on the ship required much patience.

Grandeur to Bahamas

Our cruise was most enjoyable.  The food and service was excellent.  The entertainment was very good.  The accomodations were top of the line.  Getting on and off the ship was the best ever.  I expect nothing less from Royal Caribbean, and was not disappointed.

Cruise tips

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

Just keep a positive outlook. Vacations are what you make of them.

Miami, Florida

Took the excursion of the Art Deco area and South Beach. Very interesting, great tour guide.

Key West, Florida

Walked from the ship to the southern most point via Duval Street. It was very hot and humid.

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

Remember, Grandeur is a smaller ship. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the super large ships. Keep an open mind and have a great time.

Eat in the Main Dining Room often in order to meet the wonderful passengers on-board. If you are new to cruising, you can learn from their experiences.

People who complain about the cigarette smoke in the Casino, just go up to the 3rd deck thru the shops area.

The Grandeur is not a large ship, so don't expect all the bells and whistles that the huge ships have.
