A Fabulous Cruise

Sail Date: April 29, 2006

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

The Grandeau of the Sea is a beautiful ship and I would travel on it again. My last Cruise was with Carnival "Fantasy" and in no way can I compare that ship to the Grandeau, Its elegance and and decor are amazing. The Solarium pool area was such a nice touch.

Pros: The sunset and sunrises were spectacular

Cons: disembarkment to the tender boats at Georgetown, the way it was handled caused to many people in one place at the same time.

Ship Quality
The pool area was real nice but we found it very hard to find a lounge that wasn't with a towel on it being saved until the people felt like claiming it, we mentioned this to a staff member and was told that there wasn't much they could do about it and the just wanted to keep people happy. The next day we did notice that another staff member was going around removing towels left on the lounges after a period of time. So in their own way they did handle the situation. With a ship that size I believe that they should make more room for sun bathing around the pool. Too much space is taken up with whatever they have going as entertainment which I found to be very loud and a bit annoying.
Food and Dining
Our Waiters "Anil and Ollike" were excellant. We never experienced a bad meal or service.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was kept up well, although I must admit I was a bit concerned with the dust behind the lights on the wall on each side of the bed. I worried that it could catch on fire, being so clost to the bulb.
Service and Staff
The Matre' D was very accomidating and made sure that we got a table for two as we wished. We were real happy about that.
Cozumel, Mexico
The colorful birds at the port, we had a lot of fun with them as we had our picture taken with them, Every one there was so friendly and accommidating, It is not an Island that I would want to visit again though, The beach area was rough and dirty looking.
George Town, Grand Cayman
This island was a little bit better than Cozumel,
Oranjestad, Aruba
Aruba is by far the best Island. Not only very clean and well kept. It is an elegant beautiful place to be. The water and beaches ars fabulous. I would return there anyday.
