Review SummaryOur family of four chose this cruise to celebrate a wedding anniversary, two birthdays, a decision to attend a 1st-choice college, passing the Eagle Scout Board of Review, a promotion at work, and high-honors for the kids in school. So . . . our expectations were high and we weren't disappointed!
The Grandeur of the Seas is an elegant, modern ship offering something for everyone, from clean and comfortable staterooms; good meals offering variety, choice and wonderful service in the dining rooms; excellent entertainment; fun excursions; and the opportunity to just chill out in a variety of settings. My personal favorite was in a chaise-lounge, in the shade, on deck 5, with a drink, a good book, and relative peace and quiet.
All in all, a very enjoyable vacation!

Pros: Something for everyone
Cons: Insufficient cultural or educational offerings
