Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Older ship but well kept up. Wait staff was wonderful. Some of the entertainers were a bit long in the tooth, but then, so am I so I found it nice.

Pros: Itinerary and port times

Cons: just small amenities missing - had to pay for cappucino, etc even in the main dining room, beach towels on 9th deck when debarkation is on the first deck for beach stops.

Recommends Grandeur of the Seas? Yes!

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
They have really upgraded this private island since our last visit.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
first time a cruise had decent hours in port. I am not interested in middle of the night stops and bar hopping tours. This time finally got to see one of the beaches. Will never go back unless I can hit one of those wonderful beaches again.
Don't Miss: Isla Verde beach
Samana, Dominican Republic
Found a motorcycle taxi who took us to a local beach. They caught a fish for us for lunch. Had a wonderful time. Bring your own raft - the water is great.
Don't Miss: Playa Anadel
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Always hit Sapphire Beach. Shame a lot was closed this trip but beach is still beautiful.
Don't Miss: Saphire beach
