Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Well there were a few minor issues - just basic TLC. But I also realize that it is an older ship and she is bound to have some flaws! So overall, it was very nice and clean. There were some broken tiles I saw and some missing screws in some of the windows and so forth, but nothing that made any difference to our experience aboard!

Pros: The music, the food, the staff, the ports of call - well everything!!!!

Cons: The ship needs some TLC but it was still wonderful!

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
We have cruised on bigger ships with Royal in the past, so the Grandeur was definitely not as nice in that respect, but for her size and class of ship it was great!
Food and Dining
Can't say enough about the dining room food and staff! It was out of this world. Let's just say I came home 7 pouds heavier than when I left!! The food and presentation could not have been more superb!
Cabin / Stateroom
Small of course, but that's the world of cruising in interior staterooms! But we don't cruise for the stateroom so it really doesn't matter in our overall experience. Our room was always clean and our stateroom attendent was very very nice!
Service and Staff
Once again - great! Everyone is so nice and helpful - couldn't have been better!
Out of all the cruises we have done in the past, we all had the most fun on this one! Lot's of activities to keep us busy and plenty of time for relaxation on the days at sea!
Basseterre, St. Kitts
we did a little shopping before heading to the beach. The beach we went to was kind of small but still nice.
Road Town, Tortola, B.V.I.
We went diving at this port of call, so we didn't get to do much else while at this port. The diving was just ok because the visibility was not that great the day we went. The dive itself probably would have been great if visibility would have been better. We dove the shipwreck RMS Rhoane.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Shopping! Shopping! Shopping! Wow - we couldn't even begin to make to all the shops! It was really really cool! We even found time before the "all aboard" to sneak by the beach for a quick dip in the water. The beach was very beautiful!
Don't Miss: SHOPPING
St. John's, Antigua
Great place to visit. Very pretty and nice beach - more private than any other beach we went to this cruise
San Juan, Puerto Rico
The only thing that was kind of bad is that we were there on Thanksgiving and alot of the shops were closed, but it was still great!
Don't Miss: The fort - it was absolutely amazing.
