9 Night Canada & New England (Baltimore Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 04, 2016
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 4034
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Loved the ports of call!  It would be hard to pick a favorite.  Cruise staff in the dining room and our cabin attendant were great.  The dealers (with the exception of Julien) were surly at best and rude on occasion.   Got very tired of having the specialty restaurants pushed all the time.  And WiFi. And drink packages. And photos. And anything else RCI can think of to get more money.   Not an all-inclusive vacation anymore.

Having the specialty restaurants pushed all the time makes it feel like the main dining room isnt as goid and a let down. We were treated well there

The pool is open until 10 and several children were in the pool when movies were being shown. Barbershop 2 was inappropriate for children of any age with its bigotry and bad language.

Service and Staff

Pilarn head waiter for our tables was great! Went above and beyond! Our waiters, Endi and Samaira were great and the assistant waiter was wonderful! The dealers in the casino (with the exception of Julien, who was the bright spot) were surly. I know they're going to take my money, but they don't have to be rude when they do.

Our attendant, Ada was great. She went above and beyond. Other attendants were friendly in the hallways and made for a pleasant experience.

Ship Tip

Don't miss the salad bar in the Gatsby for lunch!
