Grandeur of the Seas
4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 20, 2007
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
We recently traveled Grandeur of the Seas out of Tampa for the first time. The ship is in very good shape with lots of things to keep an active cruiser entertained. The ship had an especially kid friendly crew that paid much attention to their individual needs. I was disapointed in the food selection, but what was offerred was acceptable. Normally I would expect Prime Rib, Lobster, Baked Alaska, and good sized shrimp coctail, but all were missing from this sailing. The adventure ocean was great for the kids. On the down side, we spent over 2 hours checking in and boarding the ship. Additonally, it took over an hour at our first port of Key west to disembark and another hour to embark. This process was nearly instantaneous in Cozumel, but it again took a couple hours to get off the ship back in Tampa. Everyone was commenting on how they had not experienced this before cruising with RCCL. The drivers on the dock talked about this being a normal occurance at this particular terminal in Tampa.

Don't Miss: A private fishing trip for shark.
