7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 24, 2007
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
This was our first cruise and we were very disappointed. We checked into our room only to find that the bathroom had been used (very graphic). We were upgraded into a better room but then told the next day we would have to move because of a miscommunication internally. Bad first two days.

We did not like the food, nor the fact that we had to sit with the same boring family of four every night (despite the fact we requested a 8-10 person table).

The ports were pretty good, very touristy but at least we felt like we had enough time at each one.

The highlight was the service - everyone was very pleasant and friendly (except the manager ont our second day who told us to move- it was eventually rectified but after much stress and our attempt to find accommodations in Cayman so we could leave the ship).

I would not recommend this ship as it is pretty worn and the common areas are not well ventilated (smoky). Our bed and pillows were unconfotabel and the couch in the room looked about 10 years old.

The special venue shows were very good- an a capella group and star search winner. The ship dancers were pretty mediocre.

The day we went to the beach, weather made the water sandy and cloudy which was disappointing. On a better day, the beach would have been great.

The ruins were interesting. The town is also very cool.
