Sail Date: June 26, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Nice facilities, given the ship size. Staff not impressive (with a few outstanding folks). Dining room staff forgetful, slow. Food quality average at best (buffets fair at best).

Looks like we'll go back to Princess.

Pros: Labadee Area Outstanding; Best I've Seen With Private Beach Area. Nightclub DJ Excellent; Great Music (i.e. not 'Techno'; or 'Rap' after 11 PM); 'Hard Days Night' show very good. Small Ship Size a nice change (we normally cruise on larger ships)

Cons: Food Mediocre; Assistant Waiter Poor (kept forgetting things); Cabin Steward Fair (forgot towels on several occassions); On-board staff not that friendly; Entertainment (especially singers/dancers) mediocre at best; wish they had a rowing machine in the gym cardio area.

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? No.

Service and Staff
My wife given a pretty hard time for getting a new beach towel at the pool.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
St Thomas always excellent; shopping, excursions, etc.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Great fort; town walk enjoyable.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Best I've seen of any cruise (for private cruise line beach area). This is my 15th cruise (with 13 to the Caribbean). Facilities, logistics, activities, staff; all outstanding. We wanted to stay here for a few days. Great tendering service to the shore; the entire area very well planned out.
