Great 5 night cruise by toland2018

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Bermuda

This is a great cruise for a first timer. If you want more Ammenities I would advice a bigger ship, otherwise this is a great ship.

fabulous first cruise by cruisingammy57

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Bermuda

the staff and crew were so amazing to my husband and myself. Being in a wheelchair, they go out of their way to make sure we didn't want or need anything. The food was amazing!

My trip was nothing short of amazing! by Nicolecruiser2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Bermuda

My cruise was such a great get away for me and my boyfriend. We met friends at dinner and loved watching the shows. The food was amazing and always available and the ports of call were beautiful. We bonded with our waiters and did not want to come home?

Somewhat Disappointing by lizcerri61

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

This was our worst cruise with Royal Caribbean, but we focused on the positive things and made the best of it. Overall, I do not think this particular cruise was worth the money spent.

Best Cruise Experience of my Life by Toni1208

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

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!

Want to Go Again by valcin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Bermuda

The size of the ship was about all I could handle on a walker. I would go again in a heartbeat! The Grandeur of the Seas is beautiful! I am a newbie to cruising, but I would offer this advice: Take a travel alarm, especially if you are in an interior cabin. A highlighter pen to mark daily activities on the newsletter is a good idea. Book at least one excursion, even if it's just at the dockyards, which are beautiful, like the rest of Bermuda. Go ahead and come prepared with the arsenal of Seasick remedies, even though you probably won't need them ( I took Bonine, Motion Ease, Sea Bands, ear plugs, and scapalomine patch). I understand the ship also provides a remedy, but I wanted it handy if I needed it. This way, you will have peace of mind, even if the sea gets really choppy. I didn't need any of what I had brought. Utilize and bring what you are allowed: 2 bottles of wine, a good-sized carry-on Why not? It's best if your carry on is on wheels... you may have to hang out with it for a couple of hours. If you are a germophobe, get this new product, Nozin. It creates a barrier for Travelers to prevent illness. Most of all, enjoy the experience! The beautiful ship, the great dining and entertainment, the 360 Degree experience with the ocean,, the beauty of Bermuda, and all of the wonderful people around you! You can't get those in a text message!

Decent ship by Cruiser8683020

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Bermuda

My favorite part of the cruise - for the regular cruising (my daughter got married on the cruise, so that was my favorite part, but thats not the norm, so i wont talk about that) was the time in Bermuda. The ship docked where it was easy to get to beaches and shopping and other parts of Bermuda. It was beautiful.  The Segway excursion was fun and took us to places to get pictures of hte America's cup you cant get from buses etc. The ship was clean and the bed was really comfortable. There were lots of activities but i didnt do most of them as i had so many friends on board. Some friends did each of them and enjoyed the activities, but i visited so i cant speak to them.

My 2 complaints are this: the shows were set such that with one showing only of the show you either had to leave early from first dinner (which several of our group did, missing dessert or rushing thorugh dinner) or be late to second seating. (i think - i didnt get to most of the shows cause i wasnt going to be rushed, so i think they ended after 2nd seating). they need to fix this (suggest 2 shows, one at start of first seating and one at start of second seating - so you could go to dinner and show or show and then dinner.) second complaint is that the food, while plentiful was just meh. None of us were thrilled with it. I've been on 8 other cruises and the food was better on all of them. it wasnt bad. just wasnt something i was thrilled with. would i go on this cruise again? yes i would. i would maybe do more upscale dining. and to my time so i can see the shows. the ship is older but nice and the destination of bermuda is great. i do recommend it but be aware of the food - though some say it was better last year, so maybe it'll get better again!

Bill-Heather by billbutler22180

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Bermuda

Food, shows, pools, staff and room were excellent.  Would have enjoyed one more day in Bermuda to see more of the island.  We received first class cabin service from our steward, Lenette, as well as Simona in Windjammer and Cyrus and Monoj in the Great Gatsby dining room.

All great except the foodc by Abi

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Relaxing, enjoyable with the best service at sea.   Thanks to the specialty restaurants food was tolerable.  The presentation at the Windjammer reminded me of schol cafeteria.  They made up with very attentive staff.  Windjammer was art its best for breakfast but lunch was sad.  Quality of meats was terrible except,at specialty restaurants.

Great Time and excellent Cruise except food served was not Royal Caribbean Best. by mannyphoto

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean

I am a Diamond Plus Royal Caribbean Cruiser and have cruised on several other Cruise lines (currently we've been on 68 cruises). This one was great as always because the staff was excellent, the passengers friendly. and the entertainment 

great but the food was not. We received food that wasn't cook and/or they did not have a variety of food. Several days we did not have any beef selection (yes there was a Hamburger slider for dinner but that was it at several dinners in the main restaurant.. I get tired of chicken and fish without the accommodation of Beef.. . especially at dinner.

Another great cruise on the Grandeur! by MaineHerman23

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

This was our 2nd time aboard the Grandeur. Our first cruise was during her 2nd season in 1997 so almost 20 yrs later! We had a large ocean view cabin with a porthole window. The 1st time we had a suite with a balcony. Next time we cruise, may spend the extra money to have the spacious room with a balcony. The staff on this boat is so fantastic! There is NEVER a staff member that seems to be unhappy or in a bad mood. They are very attentive and friendly. They make the cruise what it is!! I have seen reviews that say they were disappointed with the food being cold or basic but I have to completely disagree. We had a group of 22 people aboard and we were able to have group dining where we were at 3 tables all together for dinner every night. Same head waiter and asst every night. One of them was Cyrus, who has been with RC for over 20 yrs!! Talk about personality, love him!! Our pool bartender, Simon, was the best, most attentive pool bar guy!! He has an awesome personality as well! Boat just needs updating like any 20 yr old boat would need. Love the small size as you are not overwhelmed by too many cruisers and staff members. The cruise director, Paul, does a great job also. Next time we go, we will order the drink package EARLY on to get the best prices. I was a skeptic but now I am a realist and say it is WELL worth the money if you do it early enough. We were on board as a family to do my fathers burial at sea, and the arrangements to have this done at a particular location happened so seamlessly. The staff was extremely respectful and helpful and for that we truly appreciated everything. Thank you RC for another great experience!!Love

9 Night Bermuda & Bahamas by MDDfromBelAirMD

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Grandeur of the Seas / Destination: Bermuda

As experienced cruisers, we took our children of 8 and 11 on this trip in one of the interior staterooms with the pullman berths.  We recommend center and low cabin placement when on an Atlantic cruises to help with roll and pitch, but we had very good waters for our trip.   Our 11 year old hung with the tweens and teens the entire trip.  Our 8 year spent a few hours in Adventure Ocean, but he was the oldest in his group of Explorers of 5-8 and was bored quickly.  Food, staff and entertainment all meet our high standards and we were very pleased with the cruise.     Well aware that this is an older ship with limited activities, it was an excellent value for us.

We did a pirate sunset cruise out of Bermuda which was very nice, but short of a captain and first mate wearing bandanas, I was disappointed with the "Pirate" aspect, expecting them to at least give the kids foam swords or eye patches. - They did get to drive the boat though.

Second day in Bermuda was spent at Horseshoe Bay, beautiful as ever with tons of exploring for the kids and warm waters for swimming.

In the Grand Bahamas we did the Balmoral Dolphin Encounter and beach break - it was great as we met Mickey the dolphin.  Then swam in perfect water with a ton of underwater wildlife to interact with.   Fish, Crabs, Starfish, Snails and more all easily seen.   We planned to go out into Nassau afterwards, but the shops and restaurants seem to all close up at sunset and the seedier types seemed to come out.  We did a quick turnaround back to the ship.

Our day in Coco Cay was hampered by bad weather, but was still pretty enjoyable, we went and did the Sting Ray City trip, which was cut short due to lightning, but even after playing with the Sting Rays, we were fully refunded without even asking.

An issue with the kid Royal Replenish Drink package went 4 days before being resolved, other than that, we had a great trip!

Despite it being a smaller ship and the challenges of members of our party having mobility issues we still enjoyed our cruise. The first time cruisers in the group had a great time
