Royal Caribbean 'Grandeur of the Seas'

Sail Date: December 24, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Having previously been on 3 super Carnival Cruises, we had heard that Royal caribbean was a 'cut above' carnival. Although the cruise was still enjoyable, surprisingly most things did not match the quality of the Carnival cruises. and the entertainment very average by comparison. Not a dissappointment but I recommend another ship. Maybe one of the newer royal caribbean ships will match up?

Pros: Beakfast Buffet

Cons: Dining Room food choices

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The breakfast and lunch buffets were excellent but the main dining room food was uninspiring and not not always wel cooked. many people repeatedly complained the salmon was overcooked.
Cabin / Stateroom
First stateroom was unacceptable - kept us awake all night as it was under the dining room / kitchen. We were moved and the new one was very nice.
Service and Staff
With the exception of the magician act all other was very average.
Cozumel, Mexico
Don't book a ship tour, just get a $15 taxi to paradise beach for the day. watch the tour people arrive 1.5 hrs later having spent $50 to get there.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Progresso is a commercial merchent port. Poverty abounds. Really only a landing point to go on coach tours. Nothing to see there.
