New England and Canada Cruise by ruthie3137

Had I known that gluten free options were not always going to be available and that wheelchairs to get on and off the ship were not available, I probably would not have taken this trip. I was assured in advance that I would get wheelchair transport on and off the ship.

Relaxing New England/Eastern Canada Cruise by kevinc165663838

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Good cruise with interesting history, scenery. The weather can be a little gloomy in Maine, of course. We went in October; I think that, plus the itinerary, resulted in this being a very geriatric cruise. Fine if you're looking for piece and quiet (aside from impatient old people complaining). But if you're looking for a younger, more energetic crowd, family fun, etc., don't go during the school year.

Royal Carribean is great. Enjoyed New England/Canada Cruise. However, Cruiseonly.com did not provide all saving that they advertised. by tnwebbs

Royal Carribean was great! I will not book another cruise through "cruiseonly.com". They don't give you what they advertise. Was supposed to get a 425 savings booklet. We did not receive. A $50 credit on a future cruise doesn't seem like an adequate trade off for this dishonestly.

Had a wonderful experience and would definitely travel with Royal Caribbean and on this ship again!The staff was very friendly, there were plenty of activities or opportunities to simply kick back and relax if that's what you wanted. Ship was clean and comfortable. A terrific experience!

Not WOW'd But had a Good time. by missyb1230

While exactly like there were differences. Embarkation and debarkation were one of the only similarities. The layout was similar but there wasn't as much to do. Yes we were on one of the hurricane season cruises and the water was rough there and back, which didn't bother us but it did effect the rock climbing wall and swimming pool for most of the trip. And we ate at 8 which turned out to be the worst time to eat. Right in the middle of being able to see more shows and activities that we wanted to do. I booked in February for this September cruise, had it all set then they changed our dinning time, screwed us royally. So I'm glad in one way this was not my first cruise but at the same time probably my last for Royal Caribbean. If it were my first, We'd of probably loved it, except it was not our first cruise so we expected more. And if you are a smoker it was a horrid experience. Could not get out of the wind anywhere outside. There were not enough tables or ashtrays. Carnival at least has comfy seating and plenty of ashtrays. The whole one side on open decks has ashtrays even at the bar. They value us smokers and make us feel welcome. Our money is just as green as non smokers!!! Our opinions are heard by all. So please make smoking sections more readily available and practical so EVERYONE can have the same cruising experience. I was shocked the captain didn't know how to read or calculate a manual compass. Kids will learn the hard way I guess I just hope I'm not on the cruise when old time ways are necessary. You have the best when it comes to room variety, food by the best chefs, good entertainment, great staff to keep rooms clean,not sure but probably the best medical staff,entertainers, but what good is that if your power goes out completely as well as backup and communications then where will you be LOST AT SEA like Christopher Columbus i guess.

Grandeur review by michellegjja

Was a good experience and fun trip. The one annoying problem was the pushing of buying specialty dinners. Once would be enough to say NO but this continued until day 4.

Great cruise but the Grandeur of the Seas has seen better days ... by glad845

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Overall, it was a great cruise. I only wish that Royal Caribbean would retire the Grandeur of the Seas, as she is getting very old. We met very many people, both on the ship and in ports, and it was a wonderful experience. The food onboard the ship was tasty (for the most part). The entertainment and activities were good too.

Not quite up to expectations by lisamoranyoung

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The ship is showing its age both in noticeable rust in certain areas as well as lack of dining options and activities compared to other more modern ships. The crew was friendly but the food choices in the main dining room were not as exciting or flavorful as other cruises we have been on in recent years. Also, don't book the Wild West glass bottom kayak adventure unless you are okay with them not being glass bottom as none of them were so equipped.

The best part of the cruise was the ship tour! We toured the Bridge, mechanical room, kitchen and laundry! It certainly gave us a greater appreciation of how the ship runs and all the staff and their amazing work ethic! The service and the food was superb!

Happy with Grandeur by Conniewhipple

We have been on 7 cruises and this one was terrific. Our cabin 7136 towards the back of the ship was quiet, the beds were very comfortable and the shower was always hot and the bathroom seemed a bit larger than other ships we have been on. Our cabin attendant was excellent. We strongly recommend visiting Horseshoe Bay in Bermuda. Absolutely beautiful. Enjoyed the Hilton Resort Day Pass. We had read lots about Junkanoo Beach but we were disappointed in it. We were there mid

afternoon so maybe things had not really got going yet. The staff were very friendly. My daughter likes the casino and because she gambled several times she was awarded a 400.00 certificate towards her next cruise with Royal. You can see that the ship is a bit older but in our opinion they have done well in keeping it clean.

We would take another cruise on this ship.

Family Cruise by sylvia2012

The cruise experience was great. However, I didn't like the fact that as soon as we boarded the ship some of the member from the dinning staff were asking if we wanted to purchase additional dining specials. We are sitting down having dinner and they kept coming I didn't like that at all. We were trying to relax. My suggestion is to put those type of specials in the compass.

Nice overall cruise.  Ship is older and doesn't have the variety of activities compared to other more modern ships. Onboard stores had odd hours and sometimes closed during peak time (before/after dinner).
