Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was lovely, however the food at the WindJammer was terrible. We found there were not enough places to eat other than the dining room which was wonderful and the food delicious. The liquor shop left a bottle of rum out of our order and because you cannot open the boxes until you off the ship we didn't realize it until we got home. They did however charge us for the bottle of rum.

We sat in the Baltimore terminal until after 7:00 p.m. and didn't set sail until 9:30 p.m. The dining room was closed and 2400 passengers had to make do at the buffet. Lines were long and we no sooner sat down to eat and they called the Muster Drill. Due to the late arrival of the ship we travelled without the stabilizers to make up for time. Most of the passengers were seasick during the first three days of the cruise.

Overall, not a very pleasant experience, especially for first time cruisers.

Since we didn't arrive in Bermuda until after 7:00 p.m. there wasn't much to do.

Pros: Staff and entertainment

Cons: Ship was 6 hours late getting in which cut our time in Bermuda

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? No.
