Review Summary

This is our 2nd cruise on the Grandeur. The first in 2001 was the Med and our first experience with Royal Caribbean and it was a positive one. The ship had been updated since then and is scheduled for another in 2017. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Ike was a fabulous room attendant. The Head Waiter, Yilmaz Komsu,  was very friendly always welcoming us by name and making sure our meal & table (My Time Dining) was satisfactory. We were fortunate to have Michael & Meldon and Melroy & Victor as our servers. The captain was a gracious host at several parties. John & Katrina Blair were wonderful hosts as our Cruise Directors and the "headliners" they scheduled were great, especially James Stephens 111 and David Klinkenberg. We enjoyed the music of the  "Grandeur Band", Fresh Beat, Harmony Duo and Doug playing the piano in the Schooner Bar. There were 2 "aerial act" performances in the Centrum that were most enjoyable. The shore excursions were very informative and entertaining. It was a great cruise to Maine, especially Bar Harbor, and St. Johns and Halifax in Canada. The Port of Baltimore was very efficient.

A little small but it was like a "Tiny House"! We were really not in the cabin that much. Taking a shower is always an experience.

Ship Tip

Deck 5 is a good place to find a deck chair and it is not crowded like the pool deck 9. The Centrum has music most of the day and evening.
