Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western

The ship was okay; it seems a little worn and the designs were woefully outdated. Mostly, my biggest complaint was with the pool--it was SO small and was crowded all the time. I believe the ship holds about 2,500 people and the pool can comfortably accommodate 25. The bars/lounges were nice, as were the restaurants. The staterooms were really small but that's to be expected.
We had a million Spring Breakers on our cruise--the first night of the cruise, there was a fight at the pool and when we got to Key West, 18 kids were thrown off the boat. It set the tone for the cruise and really didn't improve from there on out. It was a first cruise for my husband and I and I can't imagine a scenario where I would go on another cruise. It's like being in line at Disney World and all the annoying people that are on line with you for the rides are at your hotel, in the pool, at the bar, in the restaurants, at the shows, etc. There is literally no escape.
My husband and I are in our 30's with no kids. There were precious few other passengers in this age range. There were a lot of spring Break kids, families with small children and senior citizens.
It just wasn't a good experience.
