4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 12, 2009
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 9 years ago

The ship was small, there wasn't much to do, but sit out in the sun (beautiful weather!) and tan, only at night they had some shows and such...I did Carnival 2 times before trying Royal Caribbean and both Carnival ships were waaaaay better and had so much more things going on....Royal didn't have the 24 hr Pizza Place or the 24 hr Frozen Yogurt Station or the water slide...I'm going back to Carnival!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was delish!!!! The choices were not many (Carnival had way more choices of food), but still very tasty.

Wish they had more activities for the 25-30 year was either kiddy stuff or old folk activities.

Service and Staff

The staff was wonderful and very friendly! Everyone wanted to help!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Too small, but the solarium was very nice! Ship was clean and the layout was good.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was nice, small but they all are and you're not in the room much....we even had a little love seat to sit on. The linen was very "clean," had some dirt marks and hair.

Playa Mia was very nice and had yummy drinks...the food is very expensive and okay in taste. We did some shopping at the port...P.S. The Carnival Port had waaay better shopping..I did that a few years ago and so can compare.
Don't Miss: Drinks...not much else...just a place to relax and catch some rays.

Pros: Food Was Yummy!

Cons: Small, older ship, not as much to do on it....

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? No.
