Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago
Review SummaryThe reason I do not recommend the ship is simply because there isn't enough public area space. Often, an empty table cannot be found in the casual dining. Also, the dance floor for classes is almost non-existent. More public space should have been provided. As far as private space, we appreciated our loveseat in our cabin, but found the bathroom to be the most compact we've ever experienced after using five different cruise lines. Public restrooms were also sparse, as were places to find a "cruise-included" simple cup of coffee or tea throughout the day or evening.
The ship was clean; the staff pleasant, so there are no huge problems, aside from not getting warm pancakes, waffles, main dishes, etc. in casual dining. After two days of bowel problems in our entire party of four, we realized the cause was the liquid they were passing off as orange juice. By the way, the apple juice wasn't really all juice either. A staff member was kind enough to allow me to read the ingredients on the cartons they used. If you wanted fresh-squeezed OJ, you could have it at $3.50 a glass. Honestly. Why not at least use 100% juice from frozen concentrate instead of something made of corn syrup and junk?
