Grandeur of the Seas

7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)

Sail Date: February 24, 2007

Ship: Grandeur of the Seas

Cabin Type: Oceanview

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Review Summary

Grandeur is an older, smaller ship compared to Royal's newer and larger ships such as the Voyager. I travelled my first cruise ever on the Grandeur 7 years ago, then travelled on Voyager, and what a difference coming back!!!! Still a great ship, but a more intimate setting!

Order everything upfront! If you want more then one entree, don't wait to order it later, order more then one upfront if you think you will want more.

Had a large oceanview on the third floor - GREAT! If you don't spend a lot of time in your room, it is a perfect size!

LOTS of Cruise Ships in town on the same day, so the town was very busy!!!! DO NOT go to San Francisco beach. Water is sooo clear everywhere until you get to this beach. From others I heard you should go to the Nature Park beach. San Francisco is not really a beach but a Beach Club that charges $8 per person just to sit on their chairs, use their showers, and use their "rafts". The water was DIRTY at the beach. It was not worth the taxi fare, and beach fee. Stay closer to town or go on an excursion!
Don't Miss: Snorkeling closer to town....

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Take a bus into downtown. Beaches are small, but beautiful and lots of activities.
Don't Miss: Cat's Meow Restaurant in "town" - Best coconut shrimp!!!!!!

George Town, Grand Cayman
