2 out of 5

Sail Date: June 13, 2014
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

This is an older ship which as size limits and had too many passengers.

The good: Diner in the main dining room, entertainment at the theater, stateroom attendant.

The bad: All other food service (buffet, Park cafe), ports of call (late arrival in Nassau and delays for Coca Cay), lack of quality entertainment and activities, signs of maintenance and repair (open ceilings, closed areas), tables left dirty. Nothing for my 13 year old son. One staff assigned to the youth area and they offered no fun or exciting activities.


The bottom line, too pricey for the return.

You should do your research! View a YouTube tour, READ REVIEWS, There are truly beautiful ships available at attractive prices.

MSC Divina, Carnival Conquest or Carnival Liberty.


For us, the Grandeur of the Seas was a one time deal. Not to say that Royal Caribbean is out, but again LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP!!!!!



Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Other than the Dining Room, not so great.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Lack of activites. Felt we were just waiting until the evening show. Should have had movies each day among other things to do. Disappointed


3 out of 5
Main theater was good, only one secondary show was a plus, the piano guy could not sing! (sorry). Parties and other specialty events were energetic and the activities directors did a good job

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
What children's program. My son is 13 and only went to the "youth area" to hook up, then run around the ship. Compared with other ships, pretty bad.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Too old with size limits. Other ships are over the top, this is not.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Small inside, but the stateroom attentant was nice, remembered our names and serviced the room 3X a day

Ship Tip

Don't expect too much and you may not be as disappointed. Look for aother options. There are stunning and beautiful ships to experience, often at less cost.

5 out of 5
Not too bad, but the luggage guy seems upset that we did not have tags, then yelled at our taxi driver. The rest of the process is fine.

Why here? The docking port forced you to pay if you wanted out. If you never experienced the NASA it would be better, but we have. No activites during the day. Have something other than a so so lunch

Sorry, but when you can not get off the ship until after 3 pm and Atlantis "closes" at 6 or 7, not much time here! Do not pay for somethng you can only use for a few hours!

Too long getting off the ship. Line cutting with no monitoring (elevator to 1st deck puts you first in line), Island buffet ran out of food and was not restocked. Lots of hot dogs in a pan of greese though!!!
