Review Summary

Ports of call were very good-not overcrowded. We have cruised about 15 times and like the Grandeur because of it's small size and it sails from Baltimore.

Crew members did a good job-especially Ultra, our room attendant deck 8 and our waiter, Algin, and his assistant, Carlos, in the Great Gatsby. Laura at the guest services desk on deck 4 was great in helping me find a dentist in PR. The bartenders were not up to expectation. We ordered two dirty martinis in the Viking Crown one night and they came with limes on the rim of the glass. The waiter told us they didn't have any olives. He later returned with a shot glass of olive juice and olives. Same type of experience with a Gin Collins in Schooner. It was terrible. Drinks of the day around the pools are usually OK but in general the bar staff is not as knowledgeable or friendly as they could be. We were also disappointed that RC is not enforcing their dress codes in the dining rooms on "formal" nights. Gentleman should at least  be required to wear a coat & tie or eat at the Windjammer.

The Grandeur is now 18 years old, was refitted two years ago but is falling apart. Canvas on deck 10 is missing/torn, supports on the umbrellas are missing or broken, railings are falling apart, the jogging track needs resurfacing, the solarium pool is loosing tiles and lights in the ceiling are out.
