Review Summary

The stars of this cruise are the crew and the ship's easy to navigate layout. Crew dance parties are the best nights on the ship.  The drawback to this ship is the pool (WAY too small).  Also, as an older ship, there are maintenance issues.  Our stateroom, a large interior room, was well placed in the ship, but the air conditioning was broken and we couldn't unpack, the room was so hot.  It was repaired, and we were able to get a fan in there.  Later, the ship's venting systems allowed for sewage smells on our side of the ship.  Not pleasant.  Also, while the dining room labels meals vegetarian, gluten-free, etc., the Windjammer (main cafeteria) did not label at all.  I am gluten-free, and I realized I was eating gluten unknowingly, though I tried to avoid it.  Still, we had a wonderful time overall, that's how much we like the Grandeur!  Frankly, the Canadian itinerary is better; more ports, fewer kids.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship design we LOVE; needs maintenance; kept clean, but systems are failing.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Air conditioning needed repairing when we arrived; sewage smells from the hallway. Otherwise comfortable room.

Ship Tip

The Solarium is generally quieter and has more comfortable chairs. Also has it's own snack area called Park Cafe. Many never find either of these places.

Ports Of Call
