It was amazing. The entertainment staff is super friendly. Dining staff was over the top. Made our trip extra special. This was our first trip for our children and we will definitely be going again. Thank you Grandeur!
We love to cruise because it can be so relaxing and this one of the best trips we have had in a awhile. The staff was friendly but not pushy with the cameras, like some of the ships. The drinks were great. The food was fantastic! Take the plunge and enjoy your vacation on the Grandeur of the Seas.
This was an absolutely amazing cruise. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and all of the passengers were so nice. My only critique is that a lot of the activities are geared towards the older crowd. Although we had a lot of fun, it would have been great to have activities for the 25-30 year olds. Other than that, I wouldn’t change a thing!
I had a great time. The kids area is small. I wold recommend leaving the children at home so you can enjoy the drink package. The fun events start kinda late at night so I recommend sleeping in unless yo like to run on the top[ deck.
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 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 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.
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!
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.
This was a great cruise days at sea were perfect and entertaining dinners were fabulous . The staff greeted you with smiles the ship was exceptionally clean shopping on board was fun the prices were not too expensive we had a great time love royal Caribbean
Next time I will stay with carnival it's way better for children and family . Also cause only is all about making money . A pacifically acts for cruise there will cater to my children and that's not what I received period my children was really not happy or please
We had a wonderful cruise! We saw so many beautiful sights and met a lot of very nice people. We would highly recommend this cruise. Make sure you book some excursions so you can see what makes these ports so beautiful.
