Cruise leaves from Baltimore and goes to Bermuda

Sail Date: September 26, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This cruise has a great itinerary, but the ship is fair at best.  We have cruised on Royal Caribbean's big ships.  Grandeur is second class in most areas.  The pools are small, the gym is so small it's dangerous. There are so few entertainment areas that much of it takes place in the Centrum, the entertainment in the main theater is not up to standards we have come to enjoy.  No flow rider, a tiny rock wall, no sports court, no ice rink,  the furniture in our room was in bad shape with some held together with masking tape and a drawer that could hardly be opened.  There is no refrigerator and the "mini bar" is spread out all over the counter top leaving limited room - we had it removed.  On the positive side the crew does a great job of providing an enjoyable cruse with what they have to work with.  They are hard working, friendly and are helpful.  Excellent art auctions now that Park West has is back on the job.  Much better than when RC was doing it.  We are Emerald members of the Crown and Anchor Club - the benefits are almost worthless.  For example they now give you a whole 15% off a $30 internet package rather than $10 free.  By the way the wifi is VERY slow and much of the time you can not even get on it.  The food is ok but continues to decline as the years pass.  The best part of this cruise is that it leaves from Baltimore and goes to Bermuda.  Apparently RCs bigger ships can not fit under the 2 bridges.  Why not cruise out of Philadelphia or Norfolk and give us nice ships???

Bermuda is a fantastic destination. Show ship effectively limits time there to one full day

Baltimore, Maryland
Very accessible, lines move fast. Very good
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Not much to do there other that shop and look at the old somewhat restored buildings


Don't bother. Go to another port and use one of RCs newer bigger ships
