Fun and interesting and different cruise

Sail Date: June 29, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Inside

Nice clean ship. Food was good and service was very good. Workout room was small but well equipped. Climbing wall was cool. A nice variety of good entertainment, including comics, vocalists, dancers, musicians, and even a gymnast. Drinks were a little pricey. I wish the jogging track wasn't on the top deck, but on a lower deck, as it was too windy for good running or walking most days. I was surprised that some of the exercise classes were an extra fee. That wasn't the case on NCL.

Pros: Food and entertainment

Cons: Disorganized teen activities. Some ports were great, others not so great.

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? Yes!

Bar Harbor, Maine
Acadia was beautiful and Bar Harbor was a small, but cute and ecletic town with lots of neat shopping and eating.
Don't Miss: Bicycling through Acadia was exceptional, but it can be physically challenging.
Saint John, New Brunswick
Again, a small and not-so-interesting town. Sites are few and small. Shopping is minimal. The shore excursions seemed uninteresting.
Don't Miss: None.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Bigger city with plenty of sites and lots of shopping. The shore excursions seemed much more interesting here. I'd rather sacrifice the day in Portland or St. John for an extra day in Halifax. We didn't have enough time to see everything we wanted to see.
Don't Miss: Glass blowing at the crystal glass shop along the harborwalk.

Portland, Maine
Small city and very little to do. Very little shopping. Decent eateries, though. We didn't do a shore excursion here, because the excursions didn't seem all that interesting, but they were probably more interesting than the town.
Don't Miss: We took the island ferry as an ad hoc site seeing tour, and it was fun and interesting - and right next door to the cruise ship dock.

Boston, Massachusetts
Boston is one of our favorite cities. We've been there 3-4 times and still haven't seen everything. Many "don't miss" sites here including the Freedom Trail, USS Constitution, Quincy Market, Fenway, and others.
Don't Miss: The Museum of Science. It's a full day in itself, particularly for kids of any age.
