Review Summary

We booked this cruise almost 2 years ago.  Unfortunately, we did not realize it fell over spring break.  We shared the ship with almost 600 children.  We love children, but Grandeur is not really set up to handle large numbers of children or their families.  The cruise line didn't do a good job of keeping the adult areas (such as the Solarium) adult areas.  Although there is a main deck pool, it's not really laid out as a family pool.  No water slides or other water park features.  Grandeur is a small and older ship.  Although elegant, it is really set up for mature cruisers.  So families weren't happy, and although our 5th cruise aboard this wonderful ship, it wasn't our best cruise with Royal.  This was an anomaly, so we'll be back when we back to back on Oasis this fall.
