Amazing Crew - Dated Ship
Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
I have become a loyal Royal Caribbean sailer over the last 3 years. When booking this cruise, to be honest, the ship and the itinerary were not the key factors. I needed points to step up to the next level with the Crown and Anchor Society. This 9-night cruise was the least expensive for a Suite cabin. With that said, a friend and I both had booked JR Suites. 2 days before sailing, we were asked to room together as they had over sold JR suites. We ended up sharing an Owner's Suite and were able to both keep the single traveler points.
The food in the dining room was a bit off for the cruise, in fact on the final night, we went to Windjammer for an amazing made to order Mongolian stir fry that matched almost every meal in the main dining room. We also ate at each of the specialty restaurants, Giovanni's Table, Chops Grill and Izumi. Food was very good at all of them with Giovanni's and Izumi having the better service.
The ship is heading into dry dock in a few weeks for some haul work. The ship was very clean over all, the shows were good, but not exceptional, weather prevented us from going to Coco Cay, but we did over night in Freeport.
Very glad we took the trip and we have some amazing experiences and new friends as a result.

If you are going to the Windjammer, going during off hours and there was usually a line of people waiting to get in the second the doors open. Don't be shy about asking for items not on the menu. They actually get bored and love to go off menu for guests.
