Royal Caribbean's policy manual allows minors to roam the ship until 1 a.m. We received prank phone calls, jarring encounters in the common areas, dining room, Windjammer, theater and hallways. If we had known that upper NY state gave their students a week's scheduled vacation, we would have taken this anniversary cruise on a different week. We have adult children and have cruised with RC many, many times and wonder why RC can't tighten their policy of allowing minors in main dining and to be out so late unaccompanied by parents???
Checking passports for security clearance after returning to Key West from Nassau to avoid a logjam in Baltimore upon returning to port is a great idea, but taking far too long to do this while visiting Key West allowed us only 3 hours off the ship.
The quality and variety of food in the Windjammer on this ship and on this cruise was disappointing.

The shopping on board is very limited. We have heard that RC is considering selling the Grandeur in a year or so. It's a great vessel for an intimate cruise experience, but she's showing her age.
