Review summary

This was our first cruise and we enjoyed it very much. We went from Baltimore to Nova Scotia and back. The staff is great! We wanted to take them home with us! The food was great. We liked the dining room better than the Windjammer - but we liked the food just fine in both places. We just prefer full service dining. You can always find something to eat on Grandeur! We enjoyed the snacking options in the afternoon and in the late evening. There were a few things I didn’t like - the clam chowder and the lobster bisque weren’t for me, but I’m a Bostonian born and bred, so if it’s not New England clam chowder that’s creamy and full of clams and bite sized potatoes, it isn’t real clam chowder. The bisque wasn’t creamy and I never found a piece of lobster, but the rest of the cruisers seemed to enjoy it. The cream of zucchini soup, on the other hand, was amazing! We loved the escargot, the crab cakes, and the seafood cakes - what a treat! We learned that we like to be on the ship. We skipped the excursions in Maine - an excellent choice as the weather wasn’t the best. We spent those days relaxing in the solarium, chatting with new friends, and reading books. We feel that the spa treatments are nice, but are a bit pricey and really aren’t our thing. We will skip those next time. We really enjoyed the art auctions, as the people watching, the champagne, and the raffles were really fun! We loved the line dancing and other activities. Basically, you can be busy every minute, but we chose not to be. Our next cruise will be to Alaska - with the rest of the family! We want all of our family members to join us and experience the best type of vacation ever!
