Review Summary

Having never cruised to Maine and Canada, we picked this cruise for the change of pace from our usual Caribbean cruises and the close proximity of the Grandeur to our home in Baltimore. It didn't disappoint us! The leaves in Maine were just about to reach their peak so we were treated with red maples, sugar maples, and the smell of pine trees everywhere in Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain in Bar Harbor. Our other side trips to Kennebunk, St. John, NB, and Halifax, NS were long days on a bus (6-7 hours), but we were glad we took them because everything was a first for us. Be prepared for lobster dinners everywhere and blueberry pie! The Grandeur is the Grandeur, an old ship that tries to keep pace with the times, but struggles in certain areas. The beds and pillows could be improved. In spite of this, we would recommend this cruise for everyone!

It was always clean, plenty of storage, a bit of a walk to the elevators, but only one story up to the main dining room. As said before, we found the bed uncomfortable and the pillows a little flat for our taste.

Ship Tip

Grandeur is a 20-year old ship, so it can't be compared to the newer ones that we have sailed on. But the size is perfect (around 2000 passengers) if you don't like the mega sized ships. Very good food everywhere. Very clean ship. If you want to see any entertainment in the Centrum, get there early.
